I met a business associate there for lunch today. It is a good place to meet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, with a complete menu to pick from. Want a pastrami on rye, lox and bagel platter, kosher hot dog, salami and eggs or just a plain tuna or egg salad sandwich? They have it all. Cordial service with plenty... More

Good food, good service albeit a bit slow. I'd love it if they would give you half as much food and charge you half as much.

If you want a lot of food, for not a ton of money, especially in the middle of a fairly upscale mall, this is the place. It was a cold day and we got hot soups served with a big, free basket of bread and bialys. Service was quick, efficient. It's not fine dining, but it does the trick. Pretty... More

Great family owned feel, my boyfriend had been talking about it for awhile. Very affordable, family friendly, and you can get traditional Jewish dishes like Lox and Kugel. If your near Old orchard and want something different then the normal chains check this place out.

I have eaten at the Bagel for at least 30 years! Nothing fancy, family friendly. I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner there. They automatically place a bread basket and a plate of dill pickles on the table when you are seated. Great challah. Recommended: the soups and sandwiches. Especially matzo ball and kreplach (Jewish meat filled dumplings ) in... More

The Bagel is a Deli and Restaurant. It has unique items on the menu, and one of the best is their omelettes. The Spanish omelette is very different, The combination of vegetables are saute' and then folded into the omelette. The challah bread is like cake. They give a great bread basket. Another unusual dish is the polish whitefish. You... More

The Bagel has been around for a very long time, perhaps too long. It continues on mostly relying upon its "name", its perceived reputation. I have been going there for years because it is local, convenient, and I can pick up a decent dessert at the bakery counter on the way out. The food is good, nothing special, but, for... More
