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.

A great place to visit especially during the holidays! The Christmas specials made me feel at home with cranberries, stuffing and gravy, and even Lindt chocolate! Service was a little slow, but was not an issue with patience.

A standard Swiss Chalet but very busy depending on day and time of visit. Excellent value with an expanding menu. More than a chicken and ribs place. Very progressive chain. Always feel that you get good value for the money. Great for family. Great for most occasions. Not fine dining.
