Not a good breakfast sandwich. Wish I went to Bojangles. Bagels are factory made, more like the kind you get from the bread aisle at Harris Teeter. Egg was gelatinous. Bacon was chewy. And here’s the kicker…Want your sandwich on an everything or jalapeño panel, no problem…Want it on an Asiago bagel, that’ll be an EXTRA $3.00. That’s right, Asiago is a $3.00 upgrade. Hahahaha. That’s not a typo. $3.00 for a different bagel. Seriously…this has to be the owner’s way of tricking some folks into spending an extra 40% for a very common bagel. And on top of that, the server actually said, I was the only one to say anything? Wel, I’m sure many are thinking it.

The Great American Bagel at terminal B Charlotte International Airport was not good. The panini was the worst I have ever had and ended in the trash. Avoid.

My wife and I had to kill 2 hours waiting for our flight and were getting hungry for a light breakfast. This place was near our gate and offered much smaller affordable selections than many other places with fuller (and expensive) menus. So, we ordered a bagel and coffee. They were actually pretty good----to our pleasant surprise. Sure, they were NOT inexpensive, but prices were typical for airports AND prices were much cheaper than other restaurants with more extensive menus. We'll keep our eyes open for places like this Bagel Company at other airports!

We got the turkey club and the turkey cali. Both were very good. Would get them again. Couldn't give the place 5 stars though as the servers were grumpy. Not friendly at all. Barely would answer a question. Like it was a bother that we were there.

Bagel ok but over priced.. Better off just getting some coffee or juice. Staff friendly and helpful.

We stopped there for a coffee and bagel between out flights. There was a long line that was moving very slow. As we got closer to placing out order we noticed 6 people standing behind the counter. One waiting on customers and one working the register. The other four we arguing about who should be working the register and who should be cleaning tables, etc. They argued and the customers waited. The bagels were really good and the service was really bad.

How do you ruin coffee and a bagel. This place did it. Bagel taste bad and even worse. Atmosphere sloppy along with tables in dining area. Servers try, but don’t cut it. Knowledge of what there selling zero. Typical airport restaurant fare...poor food at high prices!

Any size bottle of water sells for $3.99, but a request for three cups was denied. I didn't buy the water. We've come to expect gouging prices at airports, but to deny a customer three cups so that all could drink the large bottle of water is incomprehensibly unaccommodating and inhospitable, especially in the supposedly hospitable American south. The turkey panini was satisfactory, only. My companions were satisfied with the chicken pesto panini.

My wife and I have stopped at the Great American Bagel shop while in-between connecting American Airlines flights numerous times. On this recent trip to Las Vegas we had an early evening flight so we stopped to get a bagel and drink while we had a few minutes to spare. The service here has always been friendly and for the most part fairly quick. Sometimes the wait may be a little long, but that is understandable if you are there in the morning and people are looking for breakfast food... We ordered a soda to share and Everything Bagels with Cream Cheese...Both were well prepared and tasty.... The Great American Bagel is a good choice when in the Charlotte Airport on Concourse B....

Good bagels, would have given a higher rating except for the very rude staff. Not sure if they treat all customers this way, but my experience with staff was negative. They don't speak to you, they bark at you in very short, terse terms. I understand being busy, but no people skills at all.

I have never waited so long, nor paid so much for such a terrible “bagel “. I can’t understand or believe how it could take so long to put a tiny amount of butter on an untoasted bagel! The amount of butter was microscopic. All varieties of bagels were gone except for plain, sesame and jalapeño. This was at 8 am! Said “bagel “ was flavorless. Horrible! Horrible!

DO NOT GO THERE. They tried to scam me putting 7 more dollars on my bill. When I asked explanations about the price, the cashier seems annoyed. I told her to do the bill again. The bill magically came down from 16$ To 9$. They probably have done this scam many times, but distracted people in rush for their fly don’t notice it.

The bagel and cream cheese tasted fine, after I fixed it. Only 2 of us in line, so it wasn't a rush job situation. The effort to apply cream cheese evenly was not considered at all (see pic). Pic speaks for itself. Another consideration, clip the wires to the speaker right above the ordering window. The old guy and the lady had to repeat there conversations twice because of the volume of the speaker playing music.

I had a layover in Charlotte airport. I walked into great American bagel and a coffee. Cost about $7.00 which is typical in any airport. The service was fast.

We have a 3 hour layover, we are hungry. There are a lot of places but we don't eat fast food. Had some paninis, not to bad. We walked 2 miles to find a decent salad, we did. They would not sell them to us because it was still breakfast! Get me to the Bahamas so I can eat seafood every day.
