Ambiance is old school subdued, low lighting, many booths. Good service and generous portions. Popular with the senior market and anyone looking for good food, fast, reasonable prices. Not gourmet. Don't pretend to be. And they have parking!

We were born in Montreal and this visit afforded us the chance to "taste" our city again. Chalet Bar-B-Q is another landmark restaurant. The interior has not changed whatsoever, nor has the friendly service. Tasting their chicken and dipping sauce brouught back many great memories. And the price continues to be very affordable. Be sure to order a second cup... More

We went for lunch and had the lunch special -- a quarter BBQ chicken with fries and slaw and that great sauce. Nothing has changed since 1944, and the sauce still beats Swiss Chalet. Even the framed photos on the wall are the same -- they look cut out of magazines and rippled under the frame. Packed with locals; really... More

Came here in the 50's nothing has changed,tasty roasted chicken,homemade french fries and best of all is their gravy.This is why you should always leave recipes the way they are.

We had take out - family pack - on the suggestion of our Airbnb host and it was delicious. The service was efficient as our order was ready for pick up at the predetermined time. The chicken was flavorful and juicy and the dipping sauce had a nice hint of spice. The kids really enjoyed this easy meal.

With over 50 years in business, they know how to make chicken. The Fry's are amazing also. And don't forget the dipping sauce. Not too hungry? Order a 1/4 chicken diner. Otherwise...1/2 chicken diner is the way to go.

My husband took me out for dinner tonight at one of my favourite restaurants in Montreal. Chalet Bar-B-Q does one thing, chicken bar-b-que, and does it very well. We both had the quarter chicken breast with cole slaw, french fries and sauce. I always ask for a second sauce because it is so good. We then had a piece of... More

This restaurant has been in business a very long time. It serves, in my opinion, the best bbq in Montreal. The service is quick and old-fashioned. The decor is vintage. Your typical eatery!

When I was a high school student at a nearby private school, my friends and I would treat ourselves to our favourite bar-b-q chicken on an average of once a week, I would say...Every few years, a local newspaper runs an article on the Chalet Bar-B-Q...stressing, rightfully, that it hasn't changed its decor in 60 + years. TRUE...it is exactly... More

When the Laurier BBQ closed we could not find anywhere to replace their great chicken…until last night on our first visit to the Chalet Bar B-Q! We were in for a wonderful surprise! I won't address the '60's decor since it's been done so many times besides it's part of the restaurant's charm. I want to emphasize on the succulent... More
