Kreplach soup? Delicious. Reuben? Awesome. Potato Pancake? Mind-blowing. Service? Fast and with a smile! Location? Excellent, because after you eat here you'll need/want to walk the mall!

We have eaten at the Bagel many, many times and have always come away happy and satisfied. The vegetable soup served ever Monday and Thursday is amazing! A delicious combination of vegetables and noodles in a thick broth, never too thin or watery. Their tuna salad is always the best. White albacore tuna with just the right amount of mayo,... More

Great restaurant with an excellent menu right in the heart of the Old Orchard Shopping Center, very convenient to most of the North Shore. Although usually crowded, we have never had to wait. Everything my kids and I have had has been great, and the selection of take-out food at the counter is to die for.

We make a point of eating at The Bagel whenever we are in the area. We treat ourselves to some favorite Jewish dishes. The prices are really high but we assume it's due to the location.

It breaks my heart to give this restaurant an average review. They should have a very good or excellent review. I have eaten at this restaurant many times. Usually, I was very satisfied and sometimes delighted. Today, I ordered the pastrami sandwich. Pastrami is the dinner of the gods. The coeur de filet of great meats. After a great bowl... More

My husband and I chose to eat at The Bagel for lunch. When we first entered, we were drawn to the sweets counter. The desserts looked amazing. We were quickly seated. Once seated, we were given water and a bread basket. The bread basket had a variety of options, but none were very good. However, no one came to take... More

Eating at The Bagel is a fun experience, but come hungry! Portions are large, and there are sooo many choices in the classic Jewish Deli style. Corned Beef, Pastrami, Salami, Chicken Soup, Matzah Balls, Kreplach, Potato Pancake Latkes, house-made pickles, bagels and lox, and the list goes on and on!

This is a gem of a restaurant hidden in the Old Orchard Mall. Right when you sit down they bring you a good old fashioned bread basket, including bagel chips, and a pickle bowl. I love that. As for the menu, I can only review one dish because I order it every time I eat here. I get the 1/2... More

This is an icon. After 40 years, it's a staple. Whether for family or meeting friends, it's Hamish, delish, and accessible. Friends catch up with the food of their youth, friends catch up after saying good bye to a loved one. This restaurant never disappoints. Reminds me of, but isn't the old deli's of the day, it's really good.
