You really can't order anything bad at The Bagel! This is the best restaurant in which to collapse after walking the mall or shopping. From mile-high rubens (my favorite) or giant matzah balls in the soup (our boys' favorites), everything here is wonderful! Ironically, it is our family's traditional meal after a long day of Christmas shopping . . .

The guy behind the counter could care less about your schedule. He took his sweet ole dearly time getting the bagel and a package of Kraft Cream Cheese to go. I was at least expecting their own cream cheese. They don't have much of a variety either, i.e. No chocolate chip bagels. This didn't even impress my 8 year old,... More

After enjoyably walking through an outdoor mall that is beautiful but populated by stores you could find anywhere in the US, we found an authentic deli that is in no way a programmed clone. The menu had things I haven't seen since visiting grandparents in Brooklyn, before Brooklyn was "cool". Whitefish, borscht soup, knishes, matzoh ball soup, and all the... More

I work in Old Orchard so I'm a frequent flier here. I have never been disappointed. Soups are outstanding. Kreplach are filled with ground briscut. Vegetable soup on Monday's outstanding. Always special whitefish for lunch. Of course there's the corn beef. Wanna be healthy? Great salads. I'm a regular for a reason. There are 14 restaurants in the mall. Bagel... More

This is a place I'd been to many times in the past and have only started going there again recently. It's in a very busy outside mall in the northern suburbs of Chicago. I was there yesterday with a couple of friends for lunch. We arrived at 11:30 am and it was maybe half full. By the time we left,... More

Was really surprised in a positive way with The Bagel. While it is in an outdoor mall, that ends as soon as you enter into the restaurant. The look, feel, service, and menu are right out of a traditional menu. Pickles on the table, breakfast anytime, knishes, bagels, matzo, the whole real deal.

The Bagel is a great stop any time of the day for a big bowl of soup (especially matzoh ball, vegetable, sweet & sour cabbage) and half a sandwich that is generally larger than a whole sandwich at most other places. The dinners are delicious and hearty, as are the fish platters, Omelettes, and other sandwiches. But my favorite time... More

I had the "Old Orchard Burger", medium ground beef mixed with green peppers, served with coleslaw, tomato and lettuce and hubby had the "Salmon Burger" with french fries. Very tasty and good size burgers. I loved the pickle cucumber because it was not sour nor sweet. Will come back here again for other types of sandwiches, and also the red-velvet... More
