Top notch service! I was with a friend I have not seen in a few years so we had a lot of catching up to do. The waitress was so nice she said stay as long as you like. After we ate we did more next door to the starbucks because this place fills up quick. We went on a... More

We had a late lunch, and wanted a smaller dinner. The Bagel is one of many restaurants in The Old Orchard Shopping Center, We picked it, and I had 1 cold appetizer and 1 hot appetizer. The portions are so large, that was enough for a meal. . One interesting note: at many tables, there were families of 3 or... More

Have known the family owned bagel both in Skokie and in Chicago for 40+ years and it NEVER misses. Yummy Deli treats with a large take out section as well so that nearby hotelers can stock up. Always get corned beef to go - you can't miss out. This trip I ate both in Skokie and at the Bage l... More

And the pastrami on rye... oh my! Not to mention the half sour pickles, bagel chips and excellent bread that's automatically delivered to each table. We will make an effort to get back here next time we are in the area.

We travelled from Seattle to the Chicago area to visit family and catch up on some great food that you only find around Chicago. When we sat down the waiter brought us a basket of rolls and breads along with some of the most perfect pickles I've ever had. Our group was comprised of my father in law, my wife,... More

We've eaten at this restaurant countless times, but our last visit involved a bit more planning as we had 14 in our group and I was doing all of the planning from my home in NJ. While I had hoped to use the “party room”, it was already booked, but I was promised a table “in the back”. Even though... More

My family in Chicago are Bagel regulars, and I've been to this a few times every year for quite a while. We were at this restaurnt for breakfast on a Wednesday, and dinner on a Friday. The Wednesday experience wasn't as good as I had previously experienced, so I thought for sure it was a rare thing and was looking... More

Our club had a wonderful dinner in the reserved party room. We had 15 people but there would have been space for more. The service was excellent. The waiter presented each of us with individual checks. He also cheerfully accommodated our high maintenance group. He didn't blink an eyelash when somebody in our party requested on omelette made from 1... More

We chose The Bagel as we were meeting friends in a convenient location with a lot of parking. It is most certainly known for its great variety of ethnic Jewish food. This time though we opted for a regular cheeseburger with a side of coleslaw. The burger was tasty and juicy. We also ordered a spinach salad, but next time... More

We ate breakfast at The Bagel and found it to be an average place for breakfast. Our party ordered French toast, an omelette and a club sandwich. All were good but not outstanding. Service was helpful. It is a convenient place for a meal because of the ample parking at the Old Orchard shopping center.
