Overall I'm rating this Panera as 4 stars because I enjoy the ambiance inside and the food there. However there are a few problems with this Panera. I've noticed lately that they've been running out of products and that the staff seems to be clueless about what they serve and what they don't serve. The first several visits something was... More

The service here at Panera used to be good, but now the servers are slow and don't seem to care. They were more interested in talking to themselves than serving their customers. We stood in line long enough that other people were leaving before they got served. The food is OK, but with such poor service speeds I wont be... More

I came on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday this week. (The free stuff is a big draw). Anyway, Wednesday and Sunday I ordered take out. Both times the order was wrong. My broccoli cheese bread bowl had no bread bowl in the bag when I looked inside. Good thing I checked before I left. Friday I ate in with a friend... More

I love Panera, I eat at Panera all the time close to my house. Stopped in Owensboro for this visit, unfortunately this one is dirty this evening. Tables need wiped down, floor needs swept. Iy could be there is no time to clean because a kid who obviously doesn't work here has been standing at the counter chatting up the... More

When you walk in this Panera, you are greeted with a sign that says AVOID THE LINE - ORDER ONLINE. This should be a clue to how slow the service is here .......It seems they cater to the drive through business and want customers to order online. When I arrived there were 6 people in front of me, but there... More

Almost a regular Sunday noontime stopping point on our way home and with the outside tables the spring, summer, and fall weather makes it very hard to resist eating outdoors.

Normally after a long road trip, your are tired and you dont want to eat something heavy you just want something lite and retire for the evening! I had never eaten at a Panera Bread before but I decided to give it a try. The facility was beautiful and had a very different vibe than I imagined. The food was... More

I get the " Clean Food Thing " but the sandwich's are small and very pricey for what you get. Paid near 16 dollars for one and a half sandwich's and two tiny bags of chips. Also service was Very Slow !

The food here is expensive for such a small portion size. For this price I could get a decent sit-down meal at a good restaurant. The food is OK, but you leave hungry after spending $10.00+ per person. The service here only seems to have one speed and that's SLOW. There could be a dozen people in line and only... More
