Cannot say much except that the food here is reliable, hot with good service. Swiss Chalet has apparently expanded its menu but we just come here for the basic chicken.

I have been wanting to try their advertised new rotisserie beef. Their advertising makes it sound delicious. I had the opportunity while taking my mother-in-law to an appointment. We both ordered it, and we're both very disappointed. I guess our first sign should have been when it arrived with a steak knife! It was so tough it was even difficult... More

Got together for a Christmas lunch with friends and this restaurant was not my choice. It has been years since I went to a Swiss Chalet. The menu selection is good and I opted for the chicken pot pie which I have had in the past. It tasted good though a little bland, and the top pastry is not what... More

Swiss Chalet is noted for their chicken. If they cannot cook chicken properly then they have a problem. The baked potato was cold and the sour cream tasted bad. The salade my friend had with her dried out chicken was o.k. but messy. The Ancaster location is very poorly operated and needs a good cleanup and renovation. Our latest experience... More

Waited a long time as roaster during the day slowed cooking. But the roast beef was super tender and tasty. We Ordered all three dishes for comparison. Kitchen staff got vegetables mixed up but was replaced quickly with hot proper requested food.

If ordering the over priced white meat, make sure you order an extra sauce to prevent choking. The chicken, white meat, in all their restaurants, seam to be as dry as anything!

Greatest place for chicken!!! Very reasonably priced, service good, and always yummy! Never had a disappointing meal there! Even the new dishes they are offering are delicious. For people on a fixed income (seniors) it is the place to go and get a good meal for a reasonable amount of money.
