Very Little has changed over the years

We first ate at the Swiss Chalet in 1956 at their Bloor & Bedford location in Toronto. While the menu has greatly expanded their chicken recipe and sauce remains very much the same. Both service and food service is consistent and usually reliable.

We were out Christmas shopping the other night and all the restaurants we checked were busy with long lineups. We choose to stay with Swiss Chalet as we always can rely on quick service and good food. We weren't disappointed.

We frequent this Swiss Chalet often, especially in Festive Special season. We quite often get a great server by the name of Anna. She is so very pleasant and give service with a smile start to finish.

If you are in Barrie and looking for a Swiss Chalet, take the extra few minutes to travel over to the Bayfield location. The south end location has a run down Kitchen that you can see from the Take Out desk. It's Kitchen is too small and therefore they only offer frozen fries, never fresh cut fries like the Bayfield...

I took my family here yesterday for dinner. Hottest day of the year so far. A/C wasn't working. Felt sorry for the kitchen staff and really thought the manager should be doing something about the uncomfortable conditions. Food was good, service was a bit slow but perhaps I felt like that because it was very warm in the restaurant. Probably... More

We had lunch today with a small group of people. They have many new items on the menu including a few beef dishes which look amazing. I had the lunch trio which is their chicken soup, half a chicken wrap and a garden salad. It was perfect, lots of food and so fresh tasting. Others had the 2 can dine... More

This time the service was not very good, we had to keep telling the waitress every time she came for the things we wanted because she never asked, my Wife was told... More
