I'm not sure I've ever been here when it's not crazy. They seem to always be short staffed. Lines out the door, unless organized. Food server Lloyd mad because plates not in order and food preparation workers making fun of him for getting mixed up but it's their fault he's mixed up. Cashiers not prepared for customers, not friendly. And... More

This is a typical Panera, no surprise there. I was surprised by the incredible friendly and helpful staff. A+. Large indoor and outdoor seating. Large parking lot.

Honestly they don't deserve one star. Disgusting! Almost threw up when I opened my sandwich. Spent 20 minutes in line to leave with food that was uneatable. I only live 3 miles from panera, but this sandwich was a gross soggy mess by the time I arrived home. How do you serve a panini on white bread? Apparently the were... More

Ordered a chipotle avocado flatbread. $8.99 for something not even big enough to fill up a 3 year old and 2 small pieces of chicken. Want a refund. Go to five guys and get a burger.

This is a common stop for us on the way to Chicago, as Panera offers a good, quick breakfast and a nice choice of fresh coffee. Our visit this time was marred by a restroom sadly in need of attention - messy and lacking supplies. The restaurant was not overly busy and there was plenty of staff. I informed an... More

Panera Bread locations are always reliable with a very consistent, healthy menu and this one is no exception.

Arrived at 11:45 on a Monday; Bread bin contained only 3 bagels to choose from and small selection of pastries available. Soup was Luke warm and management said to warm it up in microwave located under coffee stand. Used to be a good place to get lunch / dinner but today encountered a limited selection and indifferent management. Wouldn't recommend... More

I've had to stop going to this Panera, because I can't stand waiting in line so long. Their baked goods look fantastic, but they don't taste nearly as good as they look. Their salads are relatively fresh except for the less than interesting dressings. Coffee is fine. The wait for food is too long for the quality put put by... More

The food is what any other Panera offers but this location is the worst when it comes to service. It's just about always a 50/50 chance they will get your order right and I guarantee it will take forever. And good luck if they actually have what you want. I've been going to this Panera location for years and have... More
