isst vs ist

Is there any subtle difference between how isst and ist are pronounced? Would a German speaker be able to tell "Er isst im Restaurant" from "Er ist im Restaurant" by sound, or would they need context?

I asked my friend about this and he said that there isn't really much of a difference, but it's common to hear people drop the "t" from "ist" to be understood better.
