Every time I go, they are always busy...which is a positive. The location is clean. The staff is friendly at the registers but so much at the food counter. That is where you feel like they are feeding cattle. The food is made to order.

We brought my grandson to Panera for lunch. Our meals were great - generous salad with soup or half a sandwich. But the kids' mac and cheese was too cheesy and was a mess for him to eat. We'll surely select another child meal next time.

Picked up breakfast for the office. Of course everyone had a different order. Found out I could do the order on-line and select a pickup time. Walked in, my order was just finishing up so it was super fresh. The staff was friendly and I was on my way. Perfect!

I reviewed this Panera a bit ago. The menu has changed and I enjoyed trying new items. Clean, fast and friendly. That is a trifecta win. In the area, stop in and explore new foods.

We had broccoli and cheese soup, an assortment of sandwiches, salads, cookies, pickles, etc. The soup was great and surprisingly easy to distribute at the luncheon. The salad was fresh and crisp. The sandwiches were good as well. I only wish they had more options for drinks, but we took what was available for the deal they offered. I would... More

Panera Bread is my go to place for consistency. I like their sandwiches, but love their soups and salads.

In the summer season, they have lobster rolls. A large quantity of lobster is served, more than if you bought a real lobster. The meat is tasty and comes with lettuce and what looks like a hot dog roll. You can get chips with it or carrots, if you prefer. You pay separately, and your order is picked up in... More

My husband ordered a steak and cheese bagel and it was raw; too rare for consumption especially for breakfast. I've never had breakfast at Panera until that day. I was surprised. My husband had them cook him another sandwich. I'm not sure if there was a preference of cooking the meat. My souffle was bland and so was the steak... More

When I travel I often look for a Panera as I'm sure of a decent meal. This Panera was a.bit messy. Perhaps it was the hour but I was happy to do carry out & not eat in. The staff at the register was very helpful but the people serving the food were a bit curt.

The Dobbin Rd. Panera is a cut above the ordinary outlet of this chain: large, easily traveled and wide-ranging rooms with a mix of booths and tables; even when totally full, it's quiet enough to enjoy ordinary volume conversation; the food is pretty much exactly as you'd expect from the chain. At the suggestion of the two people I was... More
