I met up with some friends here right after Christmas. The staff was very friendly. For being busy the restaurant was clean. I would for sure stop by and have dinner with my family.

The kiosk is supposed to help you avoid the line but it isn't very user friendly and by the time I was done I'm sure I would have finished up sooner at the counter. I got my food to go and the servers were very helpful and pleasant, but when I got home one of the sandwiches I ordered was... More

They need to do some serious updating. The furniture is very beat up and soiled with grease, which make eating there slightly repulsive. The furniture is always sticky. The floor is filthy. They have cut back on help by installing ordering kiosks and I think that may be when and why things got worse but they weren't that great even... More

I love the soups and sandwiches at Panera..Also their bagels are Awesome. A friend of mine had surgery so I stopped and picked up our lunch and took it over. She was thrilled to get Panera, one of her favorites too.

No matter what i have ordered, it has not been worth the money. The rolls are so hard. I am not sure if they offer an alternate, but the soup is never hot. They are in such a rush, the food is thrown and slid across the shelf and slops out of the bowl. No matter what I will not... More

I have eaten at Panera several times. We often call ahead or order online for an office lunch. They are great about giving us an apple in place of bread. Our orders have always been complete, warm, tasty. I prefer to order ahead as the lines are often confusing at the counter and difficult to look at the menu.

I stop here once a week. The best healthy real food you can get. Service always cheerful. Place always clean. Patrons are nice suburban families. Enjoyable. Cheap.
