I am not familiar with Panera, but it what I would try doing is separating the two procedures. First, make the wifi connection setup on the device except select Finish; this should at least get the information saved on your phone.
Next, try and browse to an IP address like Google; put this in your BB browser - open browser, Menu -> Go To... type in: - http://188.8.131.52/
(that is one of the Google public IP addresses). This should trigger the Panera hotspot to show you the terms and conditions, and once you accept it will *then* give you the DNS and other info on your phone. At least, I think.
Apparently iPhone people have the same problem, here is a thread that sounds just like the issue you are having: http://discussions.apple.com/message...sageID=4855672
