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!

  • “Had some quests from Columbus area and Andrian, MI and wanted to take them to a "local" restaurant. My grandson and I decided Izzy's in Forest Park was the choice. They LOVED it. First the delicious pickles and then the famous Ruben and potato pancake. The waitress was great, very friendly and we enjoyed her conversation with our questions. They were very impressed with the food and her. I wish I knew her name but she was the only waitress there. Then even bought a jar of pickles to take home.”

    Robert P. ★★★★★

  • “Slightly different take on a deli. A small place where customers and food are shown lots of care. I had corned beef w eggs on top; all sandwiches come with large potato cake. Our staff was in town for a convention and ate there often. We were never disappointed.”

    Colette F. ★★★★★

  • “Goetta Rueben and potato pancakes!! And those crisp, cold pickles! Yummy ”

    Amanda W ★★★★★

  • “The best, please move to California, soooo delicious ”

    Teresa S ★★★★★

  • “We love this place. So glad it came to Ft. Wright. My 2-yr. old loves the pickles and almost makes a meal on them alone. The reubens are great but you owe it to yourself to experiment. The Spicy Delight is awesome and worth a try. ”
