Been enjoying Surf Bagel for a few years now and finally got around to reviewing them. What can I say? Consistently delicious. Everything is always fresh and the breakfast burrito is ridiculous. Worth the wait in the line. If you are at the beach, then you have to have Surf Bagel. At least once.

Better than New York bagels! Trust me! They have a great selection of bagel flavors, cream cheeses and lunch options. Their salads, burritos, wraps, sandwiches, subs and soups are all excellent. The staff is friendly. Beware: Saturday and Sunday mornings be prepared to wait in a long line. It doesn't take too long but it is wrapped all around the... More

Craving a NJ style Taylor Ham and cheese sandwich on a plain bagel and Surf Bagel handled the situation!!! They were very crowded on a Monday but the line moved along swiftly and my Wifes cinnamon raisin bagel was done as asked, lightly toasted and light schmear of butter. Most places crew hers up but not here. When in the... More

Not just bagels anymore. You can get anything you want to eat or drink. The coffee variety is exceptional and the food choices are amazing. This place keeps getting bigger and better every year!

We come here often because the bagels are big, baked right here, tons of choices of bagel and cream cheese, super service! We often share a bagel because they are so big. Do experience this place!

The bagel was yummy but they put almost an inch and a half of cream cheese on one bagel and barely a smear on the other. That was way too much cream cheese (garlic and herb) for one bagel. They were out of the French toast bagel but still had it on the specials part of the board. Service was... More

This review applies only to a cheeseburger lunch on June 29, 2014, I always have found their bagels and bagel sandwiches to be excellent. Today for lunch, I ordered a burger with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and french fries to eat in the deli. As always, I waited for my food at the spot where it is delivered. I observed... More

Eateries in this area are run by two types of people. There are the eateries run by out of towers who come in for the summer to make a quick buck off the tourists like a carpetbagger. They usually serve crappy food and they don't care - they don't have to worry about reputation or repeat customers. Sometimes they are... More

We were staying in town in Lewes and came to Surf Bagel thanks to a the great reviews on tripadvisor. Fantastic bagels with generous fillings! Surf Bagel seems to be a teen/ student hangout and has a fun atmosphere. The parking lot was full and the customers included people of all ages so it is clearly really popular, and justly... More

I really enjoyed my dining experience at Surf Bagel last summer, so I thought I would visit again this summer. This time I ordered their No Hope wrap, a blueberry bagel with blueberry cream cheese and a grilled cheese. Our order was up within 10 minutes. My wrap came with lettuce, which is not indicated on the menu. I should... More
