We walked to Charleston Town Center to pick up Panera salads to bring back to our hotel. Little did we know the mall would be full of fans who were attending one of the Garth Brooks doubleheader concerts that night. Panera was jam packed when we arrived. We walked around the mall for a few minutes then decided to try... More

consistently good food and a plentiful variety, but we always wonder, if the patron clears the table, who cleans them?...we have yet to be in a Panera and see anyone actually cleaning, wiping or disinfecting the tables...that's the 1 thing we dislike about this chain...I guess when I go to a restaurant I expect to be serviced and that doesn't...

Attempted to purchase some bread and pastries this morning. The young clerk told me they did not have change for a $100 bill.

We arrived here on a Sunday afternoon in the middle of our road trip. I won't hold this fact against the restaurant, but parking is pretty inconvenient- coming from eastbound I-64 I had to drive around the mall on one-way streets to finally reach a paid parking deck. Ugh. As it was, the food was fine. My problems were a... More

Food was predictably good. Service was varied. One employee overheard we needed water and got us a cup proactively. Otherwise, the service was a little slow both at the register and the kitchen.

I went to this mall restaurant for breakfast and I wasn't disappointed. I was in a mood for pastry and so I ordered the cheese and bearclaw pastry. Both were yummy. Plus I also ordered two cups of caramel latte with almond milk. Both hit the spot!

Five of us went there for a light dinner after a Civic Center afternoon event. The food was tasty. Consistent with other Panera's. Easy to get to as it is located in the mall directly across from the civic center. Very fast service, and they had all the orders correct! We enjoyed our time there.

Obviously, Panera Bread is a chain restaurant. But, we found this one to be better than many other Panera’s we have visited. The place was very clean, staff were friendly, food was ready quickly, and the food tasted great.

The service is deplorable, tables dirty, and the orders wrong repeatedly. I'm going to be done giving them "another chance." Train your employees and insist that they have good manners.
