I've enjoyed eating at Isaac's for many years when I lived in Mechanicsburg, and this was the same with one exception...which I will get to shortly. If you have not been in an Isaac's, the décor is very cute. Giant butterflies adorn the ceiling and...More

Quick Sunday lunch with one of my children. Sandwich sizes seem to have decreased and now their traditional pickle dish that used to come at seating must be requested. Quality of sandwiches still seems good. Do very much appreciate their loyalty program. Thank you for...More

When travelling through this area, we always stop at Isaac's for lunch or dinner. The sandwiches are amazing and the variety is abundant. They offer a delicious pickled vegetable nibbler for the table, don't be afraid to ask for more! I tried the scarlet ibis...More

We ate here twice during our visit to this area b/c there was such a large selection of sandwiches and it was convenient. The sandwiches are almost all named for birds, so for us as birdwatchers, it was great fun, plus we have a few...More

I love the large variety of sandwiches. They are all unique, and not your average run-of-the-mill sandwiches that most restaurants serve.

We went here not expecting too much - after all, it's just a soup, sandwich, salad place, right? Well, the soups, salads and sandwiches were pretty good. I tried their tomato pepperjack soup and it was very tasty. Everything seemed freshly prepared. Prices were reasonable.

We like Isaac's very much. For a quick and filling lunch or dinner, their soup and sandwich selections can't be beat. With cute "bird" names, the choices are varied and fun. Choices of bread-type, meats, cheeses, and condiments provide something for everyone.
