Vagabond is really consistent in the quality and portions they serve. No matter what we order from Vagabond's it is fresh and good. By far, they provide the most onion rings as a side compared to nearby places.

Bad quality. Average presentation. Small portions. Was never great and lately has slipped further in terms of standards. Unimaginative food. Boring sandwiches.More

What to say? Very pleasant staff. Delicious food. Overstuffed sandwiches. Loved all the memorabilia decorating the place. Fast service. Now this might sound odd, for a restaurant review, but I was totally impressed with the cleanliness of the restrooms! Totally spotless, tastefully decorated. It was...just like home! Would we come here again? Most definitely!More

I received a reply to the following review from a 'manager' named Ben.. Who mentioned bread crumbs in a burger for some reason... When I never mentioned a burger AT ALL in my review. The chips I got were cold horrible and soggy. The self...righteous attempt by him comes across as pathetic arrogance and instead of trying to ensure quality he depends on untruths to defend a problem instead of fix it... Anyway I stand by my opinion. Happily! Ben thinks his soggy cold chips should be 'double fried'.. They are chips... Never double fry them and don't use peanut or canola to do it. Smh. This illustrates the amateur attitude. Had a chicken pesto sandwich. The pesto didn't taste like pesto at all. The bread roll it came with was flat lifeless and fell apart before I could eat the sandwich. Chicken tasted OK but overall not at all a good experience. But those home made 'chips' were horrible. First of all they are sliced too thick and fried too long. They were cold and chewy and over salted. Disgusting. Another business I_ know that is bigger than this one stopped making their own chips, which were just like these because people hated them. A good move in my opinion. These are bad. I wasn't impressed at all with this and being asked if I want a bag or napkins...uh.. I'm all about conserving for the environment but are bags and napkins not kind of essential for carrying and eating a LUNCH??? SERIOUSLY? Im not a fan and other dishes on tables looked very average at best. A few smiles behind the counter might help too...I felt like they were doing me the favor. No thanksMore

Want a great bowl of cream of crab soup and a yummy crab melt sandwich? Look no further than the Vagabond Sandwich Company in downtown Bel Air. With close to 50 sandwiches on the menu and 3 soups daily, you can’t go wrong. Sandwiches come...with fresh, store made chips or a small wild greens salad. Choices include several different “egg sammies”, a Cubano, the rockfish po’ boy, a mushroom cheese steak , or the 3 little piggies (with 3 kinds of pork to get your ‘cue on). Portions are very generous. And if you don’t see a sandwich on the menu that floats your boat, you can opt for the “build your own” option.More

With so many great local eateries in our area we try to spread the love around but Vagabond will always have our heart (and tummy). Stopped in here this past weekend before venturing out to check out all the awesome Christmas lights in the area...and the place was hopping. When we pulled up I initially thought the place was closed because apparently they have had the restaurant windows tinted since our last visit so don't make the same mistake we almost did. They often have coupons on Living Social but you can also go on their new app and usually score 20% off and on Wednesdays Kids eat free and they usually have some sort of event going on for them (very crazy in there on Wednesdays that's for sure). We must have walked in at the perfect time because not long after we placed our order and grabbed a table people non-stop poured into the place and there was still a line when we left but service was fast and friendly and I have to give props to the lady taking the orders - she happily did triple duty, taking orders, delivering them to the tables all the while running the register and efficiently handling the shelves filled with take out orders). They've added a few new sandwiches and menu items since our last visit so I finally tried something besides my all-time favorite which is the Southern James. I ordered the Jimmy Hamdrix which is pit ham, spinach, brie, bacon and raspberry sauce - grilled and hubby got the rockfish tender basket with fries. Everything was delicious as always and I love that now you can get greens in place of the house chips; we also got an order of onion rings and a turkey wrap to go (huge). They now serve craft beers and still have their cold case that has ice creams from a local creamery and fresh sausages. I was a little disappointed to see that they no longer had the nice selection of hand crafted bottled sodas (I only saw ginger ale and oddly enough Pumpkin Pie flavor) although the case did seem to now hold a large selection of flavored kombuchas. Hoping they'll continue to add new sandwiches to the menu but only if they keep my all time favorites, this place is always on point and I'm looking forward for spring so we can sit outside on their patio with our golden.More

My son and I were waiting for a business to open so i looked on Trip Advisor to see what was in the area. Saw that Vagabond was opened and rated very high. I had the roast beef with BBQ Sauce and my son had...the Burger with jalopenos on top. Both sandwiches were very tasty. Would love to comeback and try some other sandwichesMore
