Wholesome fresh food

Good wholesome food cooked with Grandmas's passion. Home delivery service quick and arrived hot. Salad and vegetables fresh and tasty. Great for couples and families who have had a long day exploring the sights of the Niagara region.

I could eat chicken every night the way it tastes here. Good, quick service too. Lots of variety on the menu.

The food at this location, and others we have visited is poor / simply not good food despite what they advertise. In addition, we had seniors discount cards for Swiss Chalet and this location would not accept them. We will not eat at any Swiss Chalet ever again.

I checked out Swiss Chalet for their new beef dinner menu. Unfortunately, the beef is not gluten free, but the chicken, shrimp, and ribs are. Also the Merlot wine is gluten free for those who like red wine, like myself!

I have never been a fan of Swiss chalet but my husband likes it and we no longer have a local restaurant. We had to go to Canada recently so he wanted to stop in for a late lunch. The restaurant was very clean, the waitress very friendly and the service very prompt. I ordered the Chicken Pesto Penne, which... More

If you love chicken and ribs this is the place to go. Have been enjoying Swiss Chalet for 55 years. The chicken dipping sauce is fabulous. I always buy extra to keep in the freezer at home.

One would think that given the formula, all Swiss Chalet restaurants would be the same, but that is not the case. In some, the quarter chicken is bigger, in others the baked potato is smaller. Some treat the use of coupons diffferent than another down the street. It's not just quarter chicken any more, but a wide range of chicken... More

I often go to Swiss Chalet Restaurants as I find that they all seem to maintain the same high standards of food and service. This one did not disappoint me, it was as good as I had expected. The chicken soup and the ribs with rice were excellent and the service was fast and efficient. Recommended.

I went there twice. First time, I ordered the Hot Chicken; second time, the Teriyaki Chicken. I would recommend both. The staff were very nice, and not pushy. As well, you don't need to wait long for your food. What more can you ask?

We went to Swiss Chalet on our way to friends. The server was excellent and she provided fast and efficient service. We were pleasantly surprised given a previous time at their restaurant in Grimsby. Not as good.
