The BEST Bagel Sandwiches!

Long, long line in the summer & on Sundays in the off season. But well worth the wait! Fresh, made to order sandwiches on huge, yummy bagels! Anything you could ever dream of on or between a bagel! So fresh, yummy & delicious!

Stopped at Surf Bagel for the first time while I was in Rehoboth Beach. I had heard how great the bagels were and have friends who drive from Dover just to get the bagels. The rumors were correct. I ordered a ham and cheese sandwich on a bagel for lunch. You also have to try the smoothies. I also ordered... More

I normally go to surf bagels for breakfast, but after reading other reviews on trip advisor I decided to try Surf Bagels for lunch. I order tuna salad on the old bay bagel and it was amazing!

Somewhat hard to find because it's tucked back in corner. Without a doubt, the BEST bagels ever. Excellant spreads, and their wraps are to die for. Dave, the owner, does many things for the school and the community. Also, try the old bay bagle with chicken salad. YUM!

I lived on Long Island for many years and never found bagels this good. The folks at Surf Bagel know their business. Pick up a bag of bagels (often still warm) and your day will be off to a great start. But don't stop at the bagels. Their sandwiches and soups are mighty fine as well. I particularly like the...

Looking for a quick, inexpensive bite to eat, we stopped by the Surf Bagel and Deli at the recommendation of friends. We couldn't have been happier. A great menu with a variety of items to choose from. My fish burrito was very tasty and my wife raved about her chicken salad sub. Attentive staff, clean dining area and a refreshingly... More

Had lunch today. My husband had tuna bagel. He said it was good. I had shrimp salad, it was just average. Everything looks fresh. Place is clean.

Being from Jersey it's easy to become a pizza and bagel snob or maybe "purist" would be a better word. As for bagels, they must be crisp on the outside, fluffy and chewy on the inside. Enough said, that's what you get at Surf Bagel. The staff is awesome
