Getting take out for 4 of us for a family lunch, so a relatively big order of soup, sandwiches and sides for each of us. All the soups and sandwiches were fine (and very tasty) but I guess they forgot to put the bread & chips sides into the bag. We didn't find out until we got home - I... More

The restaurant is up on a hill from the main road. There is a fair amount of parking in the parking lot. The restaurant was clean and not very busy. The lady behind the counter took the order very pleasantly and efficiently. Ordered the steak sandwich at this location with a tea. The tea is self serve at the back... More

It would have been one thing if I didn't call the day before. My son and I were staying at the Springhill Suites and even though they offer "free breakfast", it usually isn't worth eating so we went to our old standby. I called on Sunday to check the hours and the young lady on the phone said she worked... More

We recently stopped in here out of necessity when we were making returns in the area. Both of our salads looked ok, but upon digging in, the avocado on mine was starting to brown.. I was just really disappointed to bite into that, don't think I'll be stopping at another Panera anytime soon.

I am a soup guy and eat it year round so I know I can always get a pretty decent one at Panera's. Most of their fare though is nothing special and somewhat pricey.

The service is fast and the food is reliably not so bad. This restaurant is very conveniently located across from the Crystal Mall.

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon while out running errands with the family. Panera is a chain that serves good food, has a clean and well lit dining room, and offers free wifi - which many people can be seen using on any visit. We were there mid afternoon and ordered soup, sandwiches and a salad. They have a nice... More

Usually don't review corporate restaurants but you know you love Panera. Asiago cheese bagels, orange scones, good coffee, fontina grilled cheese, office workers with laptops. Awkward to balance your tray and find a booth, but here in the land of plenty what says lunch on the go better than a half soup or salad/sandwich combo admist the confusing jumble of... More
