“Can't beat it for quick decent lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Corn chowder is excellent! Their menu beats other fast food when you want a quick decent meal. This one isn't the cleaner I've been in but I think it just gets busy so they have to catch up...

“What happened for dinner?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

In general we love the different Panera's across the country for lunch. Stopped in Anderson Panera for dinner - there was nothing on the sandwich!! We've never had such a sandwich ANYWHERE. Unfortunately, this will makes us stop and wonder before we walk into a Panera Bread next time.

“GREAT service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Let's face it, the food at Panera is all about the same, pretty good. The difference between stores is the people. THIS Panera should be the model for having both efficient AND friendly people. This is sometimes lacking it other Paneras. You get one but not the other, or, all to often, neither!

This is especially true when ordering!!! Too often the order takers are not trained adequately OR they just do not listen well. This is a MANAGEMENT issue and is likely the result of hiring THE cheapest employees with little or no experience.

This is NOT true at this location!! Great staff working in an efficient and relaxed manner. Comfortable in their abilities. Excellent all around!

“Never Go Wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

You can never go wrong with Panera, their coffee, soups, salads and sandwiches are great, to say nothing of their wonderful breads and baked treats.

“Quick alternative to a burger and fries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I like the "choice of 2" and get a sandwich and soup almost as quickly and reasonably as fast
burgers. You place your order at the counter and return to another counter to pick up your order. Drinks are self serve.The atmosphere is more in line as a cafe and has WiFi. I have to close my eyes when I pass the pastry- but lots of time some follows me home- YUMMY!
