I went here for lunch between workshops, VERY busy - but worth it! The wait for a seated table was long, so I jumped in the "to go" line. Service was quick, great selection of soups hot and ready. Specialty sandwiched that include a pickle, of course!

Isaac's is the best when it comes to soups and sandwiches. Never left hungry or disappointed. They have various other locations throughout Lancaster.

This was my 2nd visit to Isaacs, but the first was over 20 years ago. As my husband and I were travelling through the area, and my memories of Isaacs were so good, I urged my husband to stop here for a late lunch/early dinner. Well, I do know now that it is not the same place, and I will... More

Hi, Kirstan! First let me apologize for the bad experience you had on your visit to our Downtown Lancaster. Our goal is to always exceed our customers expectations, which we failed to do. You said you were passing through the area but I would still like you to send an email to our Customer Happiness Coordinator, Debra Miller, at dmiller@isaacsdeli.com... More

One fact: confusing names of sandwiches after Birds (!) means when you order, it might be better to say what you want in your sandwich or you might get a different sandwich with a similar bird name. Just sayin'. I tried 3 of the homemade salads, only $1.99 each, and the seasonal kale, apple and walnut was delicious, as was... More

Every time I go to Isaac's, whether in downtown Lancaster or one of the satellites, it's consistently delicious, fresh, and reasonably priced. They even have coupons and special discounts, so I always keep my eye open when my favorite sandwich is on sale for only $5. I always say I'll try something new, but the Mallard just calls my name,... More

Love the pickle bar. Great bartenders who remember what your favorite drink is. Food is usually good....although not consistent. It's not always as the menu tells you it is. Very fun place. Personable.

Thanks for the review...and the shoutout to the bartenders! If you ever have a problem with the food and it doesn't come out the way you expected it to, please let your server or the manager on duty know about it so we can fix it. We definitely want you to have a great experience consistently! More
