I always order the signature quarter chicken meal, can't go wrong. I try to order ribs and they are awful every time, not sure if it's just my wife. I recently ordered take out and for your info, they do not have a quarter chicken meal for kids for take out or delivery. That sucks. I called the manager and... More

A safe haven for anyone suffering from Gluten allergies!!! Three thumbs up!!! The quarter chicken with third back ribs (regular ribs) are always pleasing and the coleslaw is always just right. The Fairview Mall location is the most accommodating because one of the servers has Celiac disease and totally understands and feels for all suffering from food allergies. This location... More

Being a fan of Swiss Chalet and only able to visit Ontario once or twice a year, I was not disappointed with this location. The food was hot, tasty and well prepared. Our server was friendly and gave us good service. I would eat her again if I was in the area.

WOW can not believe it was less than 20 mins ago that we picked up our dinner and I am so disappointed and disgusted by the whole experience. First off, cashier just chats to another co worker- no words exchanged. Arrived early so I expected a wait but it was ready. Drive home, see four quarters in one pan, fine.... More

Swiss Chalet has excellent food, service and price. One of the things we like about visiting St. Catherines is to eat at Swiss Chalet.

Arrived from across the pond to visit family members confident of the usual Level of Canadian cuisine and service being high. How wrong I was! Apart from the "gushing" waitresses with all their false charm,we had to endure slow service. The youngest young lady in our party didn't get her main until we hah finished ours, despite asking 3 times... More

Swiss Chalet has always been a favourite. The food is good maybe 9/10 times with one bad experience but all in all, its a great restaurant but a little pricy.

Dinner was ok. Could have been a little more hotter and we mentioned this to the server who seemed a little disinterested. We thought she would have taken it back and heated up. oh well we know for a next time

We stopped for dinner on a Saturday evening in June. We were seated immediately, even though the place was really busy. This is a place that locals and tourists obviously enjoy. We had a great waitress (Deanne) and a super meal along with not feeling rushed so that they could sit more people. The ribs were good -- along with... More

In an age where almost everything is frozen in chain restaurants it was a delight to get fresh cut fries or chips. I was surprised that I enjoyed a dish with cheese, gravy and fries. Heart attack on a plate but oh so tasty. Food was OK. Ribs were a little on dry side and could have done with a... More
