Like the other Panera restaurants, they are consistent in their menus and preparation. I have used them for catering and they are always on time. Love their sandwiches and salads, just not a fan of their coffee (that goes for all the Panera restaurants). So happy they are removing artificial colors and flavors from their food.

We always enjoy stops at Panera Bread. We especially like the fact that that have a nice variety of foods which are not the standards you find at other places. The quality and variety of their bread are both outstanding.

Travelling. Needed a coffee and a snack. Arrived at 9 pm, coffee was hot and good. Had a scone and cinnamon roll, both were fresh and hit the spot. Great service. Friendly staff. Nice

This location for this chain is reliably good. Fast service and the food has been right each time. I would definitely recommend this location if you are in the need of a quick meal that is delicious!

This Panera location is awful... The food is prepared sloppy and wrong. Three to go orders, in a row, mine included, were missing an item or given the wrong item. When I brought this to the expediters attention, she said it was because they were busy. No excuse...especially since it is the expediters job to make sure the orders are... More

I recently met a friend here for breakfast. I had the strawberry granola parfait. It was good, but would have been better if the pieces of strawberry had been smaller. I've been to this location numerous times and usually come for lunch. I typically order a salad and soup from their pick 2 menu. I almost always order the broccoli... More

I've been to dozens of Panera Breads around the country and this one is the worst. A few employees are not very friendly and one woman is very demeaning to other employees, and right in front of customers. Coffee and creamer always runs out, ALWAYS, and it can take 10 minutes or more waiting for it. Other items run out... More

On our way to Virginia Beach and stopped here for lunch. First thing you notice is someone is at the door to greet and assist you, that's different. We ordered our food, they gave us our drink cups and then a flasher so we could get settled in and wait for our food to be ready, another nice touch. The... More

We live VERY close to this Panera and used to go there all the time. However, our last few visits not only has the food been sub par but the service has been bad, as well. One night we ordered the new noodle bowls, only to get a bunch of tiny bits of noodles and an inaccurate take out order.... More
