It's Swiss Chalet!

Pretty standard Swiss Chalet fare, the hostess wasn't friendly and didn't want to seat us at one of the open booths even though we had requested that, but after asking again, we were moved. Our server, though, was incredibly friendly and attentive and made it a really great experience. Their... read more

Tired after being on our feet all day, and not wanting regular restaurant food and expensive eating out costs, and just wanting to bring the food to our hotel and eat, this was perfect! For feeding 4 of us with just regular yummy comfort food, we only paid $35. It was perfect, and ready for us in not even 10... More

We went within an hour of closing. My husband,s coffee was cold and so was his meal. I do have to say my meal was fine. Our waiter was courteous and rectified the cold coffe and was apologetic about the meal. We received gift certificates but not sure we will use them. I guess the lesson is don't go near... More

I had a delicious roast beef meal here and the wait staff were pleasant. The chicken parmesan was very good too. There was a very short wait before we were seated. Very clean place and reasonably priced.

I am a transit driver and usually eat at Edo or similar for dinner but I was craving some comfort food so went to Swiss Chalet and was looking forward to the meal. To be fair, my waiter was perfectly fine but he was new and I could tell that was the case with most of the young servers. I... More

Usually I give a restaurant a couple of chances before I say I would never go back, so it's been twice that I have had amazing service but terrible food. Chicken is not seasoned at all, ribs were dry and gravy was gloppy. Oh well, I'm off to look for a good chicken and ribs place.

Good food as usual from a Swiss Chalet. Great for families and excellent for kids. However- found our service to be annoying when every conversation led with an attempt to upsell. IE: Are you sure you just want to drink water to start? (yes) Are you sure you don't want to order a special appetizer? (did I ask you for... More

Swiss Chalet is okay if you don't want a burger. Decent meal, average service, the best part of our visit was the police arrest we watched in the car park during our meal!

Arrived tuesday for dinner, it was almost empty but no one greeted us for 8 minutes. Food took a long time to come out and was cold except for the kids meal which was so hot it burnt our fingers. Shortly after leaving I had to make an emergency stop at a bathroom... This one has been great before, it... More
