Chicago isn't awash in Jewish delis, so we have to take what we can get. Fortunately, The Bagel does a lot of things right, particularly its chicken hot pot, gefilte fish, and bagels. My favorite Jewish breakfast food is fried matzo, but I can't really recommend this restaurant's version. But sit me down with their complimentary pickles and bread basket,... More

This is the BEST Matzah Ball soup anywhere. The sandwiches are all abundantly packed. All the Jewish Deli favorites and more. the salads are crisp and can feed 2-3 people. When they put bacon in a salad or BLT, it is always golden crisp. Don't miss this place

Even in a city as large as Chicago, deli style restaurants can be hard to find. As a staple in the Lakeview neighborhood for many years, visitors or residents up north can enjoy the same selection and service at The Bagel Restaurant at Old Orchard Center in Skokie. Located towards the northeast side of Old Orchard Center, the Bagel offers... More

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
