Return visit for the 'Festive Special'

I did review this outlet before, after a previous visit over a year ago. This time we hearkened to the siren-call of their traditional 'Festive Special', and decided to try it out. I was in the mood to 'pig-out' a bit, and ordered the big 1/2 chicken dinner; my colleague had the 1/4 chicken & 1/3... read more

Service is slow for a restaurant near the 401. It is alright for senior citizens who have all day. If you are in a hurry, you may not like this location. I would rather wait longer and have decent food though.

I live in Quebec where there are no more Swiss Chalet restaurants. When I travel in Ontario I always stop at a Swiss Chalet to have supper. I was driving through on the 401 and decided to stop here. Impressive Brand new restaurant. Staff very polite. I ordered garden salad and 1/2 chicken. Salad is large, fresh and very tasty.... More

Went here last night with my husband a little after 7pm. We were seated right away, had a little trouble walking to our table, the floor was very greasy feeling and slippery. Our waitress took a few minutes to show up but brought us our drinks right away. I asked for the new roast beef dinner and was told they... More

We used their takeout facility last night. The food was well packed and exactly the same as you would get in the restaurant but we were able to eat it in the comfort of our own home.

As soon as I saw the commercial for their new beef dinner I just had to try it. Why is it when restaurants are almost empty the service is lousy? Seeing only a couple tables with a few people you would think our server would have given us the time of day but we were clearly a number. A couple... More

Stopped by for dinner on the way home. Restaurant was busy and noticed the new menu of rotisserie beef dinner and sandwich. Saw others ordering it and it looked delicious and hot. Originally was just to grab a quick bite to eat of chicken noodle soup and a bun before hitting the highway to home. Love the chicken noodle soup.... More

2 can dine for $14.99 is the best food value in town. Chicken, fries and buns were right up to SCs standard although by the time we got our meal the fries were cool.

Whenever we are in Cobourg and the 'hungries' attack us, we head for Swiss Chalet. It is the best value for money in town. Great chicken dinner specials and yummy appetizers.
