Definitely a meat lover's place. Rotisserie chicken was good, ribs and shrimp were overcooked, sides blah and tasteless. Their spicy specialty sauce just tasted like gravy with clove and cinnamon, and was too weird for our American tastes.

On vacation and so I get to pick an eatout place to go...Swiss Chalet provided what proved to be a great meal,served quickly by a very competent, gracious server. The meals were hot and were well in our price range. Certainly I would recommend to locals or travellers

We ate here on a Sunday night and were surprised at how busy it was. Plenty of choices on the menu and family oriented. Our meals arrived quickly and tasted great. We found our server very helpful and welcoming. We will be back.

The food is worth visiting for but don't expect a friendly greeting or service. Worst Swiss Chalet we've ever visited for customer service. This wasn't the first time. We go every time we visit Nova Scotia and it never gets any better. It's really sad for such a fine establishment.

On the road to the Cabot Trail, and hungry. Swiss Chalet had Canada Day specials, which included dessert. We left satisfied.

I am a regular at Swiss Chalet.. I love coming here because I'm a big fan of their quarter chicken and Garden salad.. The service is very fast and friendly.. Always a great meal :)

Sometimes it's good to know what you are getting. Good service and food Same as all Swiss chalets -- all under the same standards

We visited the restaurant with a group of our family. The restaurant staff was friendly and food arrived quickly. One in our party found her steak under cooked but not enough to send it back. Otherwise our meals were great and everyone enjoyed their desert. I'll definitely be back.

The facility is clean and the staff friendly for the most part. This facility serves a better meal than other of this chain that I have attended. The layout is a bit convoluted but other than that its a good facility.

Thank B B

Since our doors first opened in 1954, Canadian families have been coming back to Swiss Chalet generation after generation. Our rotisserie ovens only accept fresh (never frozen), grain-fed, Canadian Grade A chickens, because quality is all we know. So what will it be? A Quarter Chicken with fries?
