So I come here frequently. The rating is very average today for two reasons: the cashier seemed to be very uneducated about their options for steel cut oatmeal. Asked if there were still serving..."yes". I ordered the strawberry, pecan, ..she had difficulty figuring out how to place the order. Then my name was called - learned "we are out of... More

Ate here Wednesday evening and had the Cashew Chicken salad along with a drink. The salad was very good and the service was fast and friendly. Will eat here again in the future.

Not very happy with this place. It was our first time eating here but we really didn't like it. Had the turkey sandwich the turkey was great but the bread was harder then we liked. My daughter got the mac and cheese and she really liked it. It is not some where we will eat again.

I love Panera's salads and soups. This time I tried the butternut squash soup and it was delicious. I also tried the Mediterranean 1/2 sandwich but panini style.

This Panera was really great. We used a gift card while on our way to Chattanooga. Very fast service and staff friendly. I recommend.

Panera is one of my favorite lunch spots, so I usually seek them out when on vacation as they offer healthy food as well as mouth watering desserts for those with a sweet tooth. I ordered grilled cheese with tomato soup. It was excellent and great fare for a rainy, cool day.

Smyrna exit is a great exit to stop at when wanting to stop before or after Nashville when traveling on I-24 .. Many dining options.. Note: this is a very busy exit. Food was good but not as quiet as good as other Panera breads I have frequented.
