Pretty good!

They use to make you bus your own table when you finished but no longer do that which is good. It cost's about $25 for two people to eat hear with drinks and there are better deals in town but it's a good place to go to once a week or so as the food is pretty good, just a... read more

Have never ordered anything that I didn't love. The steak salad is fantastic. If you need to do school work or business - bring yoru laptop - they have internet connection for free. Highly recommend.

Food was okay all around. Service was poor - cashiers had to check with the people in the back if every item ordered are "gone or available". Almost all of the selections on special were gone. Cashiers did not greet everyone that entered the restaurant but rather just the friends that happen to drop by and chat with them. We... More

This is a chain, same menu as the rest. I ordered the turkey, cranberry on flat bread. I'm not a big eater, but left hungry. Sandwich was really skimpy. Parking is easy, and a few tables outside.

The menu was quite assorted, the food was fresh, delicious, and will appeal to a wide variety of people. There are pastas, sandwiches, soups, salads, and more. Their breads and bakery goods are incredible, and service was great. I hope to try everything on the menu, as so many selections spoke to me, and probably will to you too! I... More

Fresh product, great service and yummy food. If you are not watching your waistline, please try the mac and cheese. Bread is always fresh. Service is always great. The best breakfast sandwich is the Asiago Bacon Breakfast sandwich. Never had a breakfast sandwich so good. Give yourself some time because there is always a line.

Pretty, pretty, bad. Won't be back. I had a turkey sandwich and never thought it would be processed crap you would get in the grocery store for 87 cents a package. On top of that it was a bread sandwich; hardly any of the slimy meat or whatever it was inside. In fact it was so puny that the meat... More

I have eaten at Panera Bread many times. I usually enjoy all the salads on their menu - especially the Asian Sesame Chicken salad and the Strawberry Poppyseed with Chicken salad. It's a casual atmosphere and usually very clean. I find all the food tasty. They have a good assortment of breads and bagels, too. Recently, I noticed that so... More
