Panera Bread offers some unique lunch offerings at reasonable prices...my Turkey, Bacon Bravo was good but my date's Chicken Panni was better. My preference however, is to be seated in a restaurant and waited on when I'm vacationing, as I was at Foxwoods, as opposed to ordering while standing in a line, waiting for the food and finding an open...

We went to Foxwoods for bingo last night and went to Panera Bread before we went into the bingo hall. They were out of bread!! Huh? We asked for hoagie rolls, but they were out of those. Ok, how about the baguettes? No, we're out of those, too. Soooo, I guess we'll have ciabatta. No, we don't have that either.... More

Staff was happy and fast at 6am. The Sanwich look and tasted like it was frozen and Microwaved and Served . Bread was Hard . It was the worst Breakfast Sandwich I've ever had in My Life.

Pretty sure at least half the staff here is using drugs on the clock. Grilled cheese was terrible. How do you mess up a grilled cheese? (Step 1: be on drugs while you're making it.) We did get cold bagels to go once that were pretty good, so there's that.

The prices are too high for the portions but I dont mind paying more if the food was done right. Both my husbAnd's food and mine were done wrong, dry and missing stuff. Highly disappointed!

The Panera at this location is very dependable as far as getting 'it right' on your food order. Nothing EVER missing and always comes out as requested. Service is quick and not a long wait to get served.

Always has good food and lots of options. Pricier than some of the other paneras. A good option for the casino. Can bring own drink

Whenever I go to Foxwoods I always stop in this Panera. Michelle is fabulous and makes me feel like I'm an old friend every time. If it's slow then we chat while she takes my order or makes my smoothie. The rest of the staff is equally as friendly. I always feel like I'm coming home when I'm here. The... More

Panera Bread is consistently good for a sandwich, soup or a salad but I believe they are overpriced for what you receive. There are several sandwich shops serving far better and tastier food than Panera"s at about the same price.

I had to try the new soup bowl specials, and I was not disappointed. The food here is really good and reasonable even at a casino. We had lunch here twice during our stay.
