Take out here is a joke!

Sitting here in the take out area of the Swiss Chalet. Been waiting for almost an hour. Kid that is preparing the salads, is chomping away on gum and preparing the salads with bare hands. This while he goes back and forth between manning the cans register. No washing his hands between jobs... read more

Sitting here in the take out area of the Swiss Chalet. Been waiting for almost an hour. Kid that is preparing the salads, is chomping away on gum and preparing the salads with bare hands. This while he goes back and forth between manning the cans register. No washing his hands between jobs either. Pretty disgraceful. Won't be back here!

Visited this restaurant on the 8th of Dec. 2014. It was roughly 2:45pm, and as such the place was rather quiet. However, that didn't stop our server from performing as though she was run off her feet with lousy service. Also, the food was cold. Then I noticed a hair (short black one to be specific) in my fries. Hey... More

Friendly service, warm food. After arriving in town late in the evening, I discovered most locally owned restaurants had closed. Swiss Chalet takeout was open later so I was able to get a hot meal and take it back to hotel.

Yes it's a chain restaurant same old entries games. Quarter chicken dinner equals very small portion of chicken, a roll, and a huge plate of fries. Fills up the plate but really, just overpriced fries. Just know what to expect when you go.

As others have pointed out it is part of a chain that is quite consistent. The server was friendly and attentive but not overly so. The ribs were quite tasty and the chicken as expected. A safe choice.

The wife and I have had meals at Swiss Chalet's over the years and I haven't felt the need to really comment on them. We stopped for lunch at the one in Cobourg and found the staff were polite and efficient. We decided to try something other than our usual chicken and ribs and started off with Chicken Spring Rolls.... More
