Cloudy day and busy day. Good food, lots of it. View would have been perfect if not for clouds. Lovely water view. I'd give them a definite thumbs up!

Too bad because that is the best thing about this restaurant . The place is nice and the atmosphere and view are terrific. The food was average at best. That make this place an underachiever in my book. You would think you would be getting the freshest seafood that is well prepared. NOT the case. My broiled seafopd medley was... More

My husband and I went to dinner recently at Isaac's. This place is quite elegant, overlooking the Plymouth Bay Harbor. We both had seafood but I also had their clam chowder, which is out of this world. We love to travel, I try out New England Clam Chowder everywhere we go, and Isaac's is the best by far.

The food on this evening was terrible,as was the waitress. Of 4 dinners only one was good.The pork loin was so dry and the sauce that was on the side was so thick and tasted like flour. The seafood casserole was also too dry,with burnt breadcrumbs on top. The waitress never came back, to ask how everything was. When we... More

Ate here for our last meal in USA before flying home. Glad we did the place has class. Prices were correct for what we ate - chicken with prawns and apricot glaze, unusual but delicious. Fried clams, prawns and haddock - equally so. Good service, nice ambience and a view over Plymoutn harbour.

We had a "front row table" though there are few bad tables in terms of being able to see the harbor, Both service and meal were very good. We walked in without a reservatiobn and were seated immediately. We didn't feel pressured to clear out table when things started to get busier,

The meals are good, but wait on weekends extremely long. No reservations, but preferred listing available. Had a later reservation around 7:30 PM, restaurant full with long waits when we arrived. Somehow our service was much slower than the rest of the restaurant, because most of the tables were empty by the time we left ??

Thank James M
