The Cod Father Becomes A Catholic Favorite

The Cod Father Becomes A Catholic Favorite

For years now Izzy’s John Geisen takes on his alter ego—the Cod Father.  The Cod Father gets especially popular during the Season of Lent.  He has become a Cincinnati tradition.  2010 is no exception as Lent begins on 17 February and ends on April 3, which is the day before Easter. 

The Cod Father is serving up the tastiest fish sandwich in the tri-state!  Stop in at any of Izzy’s 9 locations and taste one for yourself!

Food was great, staff was funny, and the price was perfect for what we got. Next time we are in Cincinnati we will have to stop by again. Give it a shot and go for the Ruben its great!”

    Heather T. ★★★★★

  • “Longtime fans "love" this landmark Cincinnati deli with locations throughout the city serving "hearty", "overstuffed" sandwiches (particularly the "terrific" Reuben) along with "famous" pickles and "second-to-none" potato pancakes; although the decor reminds some of a grade-school lunchroom, it's affordable and the staff is "a hoot."

  • “Izzys always has good sandwiches, particularly any Reuben variation because the sauerkraut is always crisp and tart. The pickles are the real star though, and we inhale as many as possible every time we visit. The potato pancakes are unique and definitely worth a try - particularly if you are expecting something like a hash brown patty or a soft doughy cake. ”
