The restaurant was crowded and had a long line and wait, but the food was the usual good-quality found at Panera. No complaints. It was great to get a turkey sandwich that didn't seem overly-processed and a hot drink. We stopped here on the way to Gatlinburg. Had to pay for parking. (Opted for $6... read more

I love Panera. However, I have discovered that they're not all the same. Unfortunately, the good location for this restaurant won't draw me in again. Somehow they manage to serve soup that has a skin on it - as if it's been sitting for a while and then reheated; bread was stale (I KNOW they donate leftovers at the end... More

Our Family like Panera since they have healthy and tasty food options. We stopped to eat here lunch after 2 hours of walking in the city. The place was busy but the service was quick. The usual good food. Clearness was the weak point.

Had a good visit at Panera Bread. Great location downtown. Got the "Pick 2" soup and sandwich. Just right as always. Other than noticing that the interior of the place could use a little TLC, we had an enjoyable lunch as usual. :-)

Fresh salads and tasty sandwich and soup. Plenty of food for a healthy diet and you don't have to worry about all the additives that you can't pronounce.

The counter staff seemed to be in a dream, not paying attention to the growing crowd of irritated breakfast customers. Then they acted sort of snotty when taking the order. It was early in the morning, which may explain their churlish attitude, but doesn't explain the rock-hard pellet of chocolate inside my croissant (which seemed day-old) or my room temp... More

I live in New Jersey and I'm not really crazy about our Panera Bread restaurants here. I must say though that I visited this location in Chattanooga and had a wonderful Greek salad. It puts the New Jersey Restaurants to shame. I had lunch here and enjoyed it so much that I came back the day I was flying home... More
