Kaiser Bun would have been a better description !!! Where was the chicken ? No bacon ,lettuce was limp and the tomato was past it's expiry date.Fries were cold. Also way overpriced at $13.49 for takeout !!

Portions have shrunk over the years. Still predictable in terms of quality. Safe bet when you just need supper and don't have the energy to think about where to go.

The service is always excellent & the food is good. We go fairly early between 5:00 p.m. & 5:30 p.m. & rarely have to wait to be seated.

Never had bad service , Staff very friendly welcomes you with a smile.. Food is always good. Good atmosphere. You never wait very long for your order even when they are busy. I would definitely recommend. We have ordered before for delivery, very efficient also. Overall very nice place to go for a good meal at a decent price.

I was never a Swiss Chalet visitor until recently. I have found the food to good quality, the service swift and friendly. The location on Golf Links (my first visit) was up to the standards of other locations I have enjoyed.

We normally avoid chain restaurants like the plague. Between sub-standard food and embarrassing attempts at manufacturing nostalgia, eating in a franchised establishment is usually a painful exercise. Swiss Chalet is a wonderful exception. The secret is, they don't try too hard. They simply roast their own chicken, cut their own fries, and voila - you've got a decent lunch or... More

I haven't dined in the restaurant but love their takeout meals. A great healthy alternative to fast food. Kind people at the take out counter.

We have been going for years and it is like an old friend. I love the sauce and quarter chicken. It isn't fried but broiled. They are keeping their menu fresh with lots of new items. Good family restaurant.

Foods almost always good at Swiss Chalet - sometimes outstanding - but the servers attitude can make or break the mood. Ours started out good but when paying for the meal, bad attitude aplenty. Maybe our tip wasn't to spec?
