Many go to Panera expecting bread, yet this location seems to always be out. I have made several complaints to both store associates and the corporate office with absolutely no change. Every single time I dine here, they wait until you pick up your food to tell you they have no bread left. If they know they are out of... More

I had a business mtg at this location and afterwards got lunch. The turkey sandwich plus the potato soup was good and tasty. Great place to relax and enjoy the view at a grand location. The restaurant was clean and neat with a friendly and comfortable environment. The floor plan is well designed and a great location for business meetings.... More

I love this Panera! Great food and convenient. I have the app on my phone and order ahead, it's always ready when I get there. This is especially convenient after a long work day and you want something fast. Food is always fresh and great tasting. I also love using the kiosks in the restaurant to order my food. I... More

We visit here several times a year when passing through and find consistent quality in service and the food. In spite of some displeasure with some recent menu changes, we can still find something to eat that we are happy with. On this visit we met up with daughter and three children. They only have one large table that will... More

This is what you would expect from any Panera. Great food and service. Some of the tables needed to be cleaned (wiped down) but otherwise, very nice.

This restaurant is a great informal sit down restaurant with great soup, great Mac and cheese and great cheese ravioli. They even bring the food to you. Highly recommend it.

Who doesn't love Panera Bread? Love me some soup, salad, or sandwhich. Everything is always delicious. Oh, and the shortbread cookies are to die for, as well as their cinnamon crunch danish.

Just love their soups and sandwiches. Everytime have no issues here. Just sometimes crowded with folks loving their wifi more than the food I think.

I love Panera! It's a great place to meet a friend for a quick, informal lunch, with plenty of seating (including outdoor). It's also great to sit by the fireplace and take advantage of the WIFI. They have a nice selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. They don't have much else though, so if you are looking for more of... More

Love their bagels, often visit on Tuesday for their half price dozen and a half special. Food is always delicious and consistent, no matter what time you visit. Love that there are lots of healthy options in soups, salads and specialty items. Love their new bring your food to you table service.
