The meats and cheeses are flavorful, and the bread is perfect. Almost any combination is great. I have tried several. Huge menu, lots of options. Staff seem overworked, not exceptional. But the food is why you came.

I have never been dissapointed with the service, food quality or ambiance. This place treats their customers as if they are a part of the family. It is noticed and much appreciated!!!

When you drive to Rehoboth beach you see many little shops and plenty of farms selling their produce. A trend in the local restaurants I visited was having flavorless veggies in their recipes. I don't get why restaurants do not use local farmers. It could take their food from meh to yum with no effort. With that being said Surf... More

The bagels here are the real deal. I hate poor quality bagels and outside NYC that is mostly what you find. Not at Surf Bagel. These bagels are the real thing. Whether getting a dozen to go or just an egg sandwich to eat there, it's always been great.

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
