I recently ate at this Panera in Charleston while in town for a conference for work. The employees behind the registers were flustered and rude, one even kept yelling over her shoulder at her manager that she was supposed to have gotten off and that her mother was waiting for her outside. It was a VERY busy time with a... More

Location was fairly busy when I arrived. The clerk took my to-go order quickly & friendly. As I was waiting to get my order, a 20-something African-American female employee went to the counter where orders are picked up from, engaged in conversation with the employees assembling orders. Not sure I would have had a problem with this, had it not... More

I ordered the napa chicken salad and broccoli cheddar soup and it was good. Not real busy on a Sunday afternoon.

We walked to Charleston Town Center to pick up Panera salads to bring back to our hotel. Little did we know the mall would be full of fans who were attending one of the Garth Brooks doubleheader concerts that night. Panera was jam packed when we arrived. We walked around the mall for a few minutes then decided to try... More

consistently good food and a plentiful variety, but we always wonder, if the patron clears the table, who cleans them?...we have yet to be in a Panera and see anyone actually cleaning, wiping or disinfecting the tables...that's the 1 thing we dislike about this chain...I guess when I go to a restaurant I expect to be serviced and that doesn't...

Attempted to purchase some bread and pastries this morning. The young clerk told me they did not have change for a $100 bill.

We arrived here on a Sunday afternoon in the middle of our road trip. I won't hold this fact against the restaurant, but parking is pretty inconvenient- coming from eastbound I-64 I had to drive around the mall on one-way streets to finally reach a paid parking deck. Ugh. As it was, the food was fine. My problems were a... More

Food was predictably good. Service was varied. One employee overheard we needed water and got us a cup proactively. Otherwise, the service was a little slow both at the register and the kitchen.

I went to this mall restaurant for breakfast and I wasn't disappointed. I was in a mood for pastry and so I ordered the cheese and bearclaw pastry. Both were yummy. Plus I also ordered two cups of caramel latte with almond milk. Both hit the spot!
