In Parry Sound on business and decided to try Swiss Chalet. Expected usual fast food but was pleasantly surprised with the Festival Dinner. Served very quickly and the meal was piping hot, nicely presented given it was a fast menu item, and it was quite tasty...similar to a homemade Christmas dinner. Lots of stuffing, good sized serving of meat, cranberry... More

Have always loved Harvey's - the burgers are the best in the fast food market (in my opinion). Thought we'd try the poutine as a friend said they had the best. Didn't actually like them (first time trying poutine) so I can't really say if theirs is any better or worse than the competition. My husband thought they were great... More

My wife and I were driving home to Sudbury and just wanted a quick, tasty dinner. We were very happy with the quarter chicken dinner served very quickly at this restaurant. Nothing fancy, just the dinner and water to drink. The price was definitely right. The downside is/was that the washrooms were inadequate and had not been cleaned for some... More

Good place to eat your Harvey,s hamburger, but not big enough for a Swiss chalet fan.... Limited food in that regard. As far as the burgers go, very typical Harvey's the staff being better than typical. Fun and funny enjoying their job it seemed. It closed early when we were there, 10:00 so don't go any later. It was clean... More

I ordered two meals to go. One quarter chicken with fries and one rack of ribs with fries. They gave me both orders and charged me for complete meals but neglected to put the fries in with my rib meal. I was the only customer there at 11:30am, the first customer! But, they still shorted me. I am from out... More

... if you're here for the Harvey's, you're in good hands. If you're looking for the Swiss Chalet experience, you may need to wait til you're on your way back to Toronto. It's an unfortunate thing when Swiss Chalet has amalgamated with Harvey's to the point they just take Harvey's fries for their chicken dinners. Swiss Chalet fries are the... More

This 'go-to' for many North / South travellers is always busy. It doubles as a bus station too, which I have always found quite odd (doesn't really interfere -- just sort of random). Your typical Harvey's / Swiss Chalet. The people are friendly, but that's all about that stands out. AND -- as a guy -- I am suggesting they... More

great burgers, always hot, the staff is friendly and usually efficient, however the last time I was in a young server forgot to give me utensils and napkins, this was unusual as I mostly have a hamburger and fries, this particular day I decided to have a chicken dinner

There were 2 cashiers. I kept chewing her nails and the other kept rubbing her nose and face. One of the food handlers scratched her head wearing her plastic gloves and then kept serving. Another took off his baseball cap and rubbed his head and hair by the food warming area... Etc. no one washed hands in between or before... More
