This place has been here since the 40s and I think maybe they updated the floor. Pine paneled alpine style decor makes you feel you've stepped into a museum. The very professional wait staff look... shall we say... authentic to the period as well. If you like slow roasted chicken, fresh cut fries and tangy cole slaw, this is your... More

We thought we would try this restaurant since AAA listed it and it was close to our hotel. It was packed!!! Our waitress could not have been better. She was a delight and helped us with our order and explained the "Le Chalet" sauce telling us it was so wonderful. The food was very good, best fries we have ever... More

Another must do when visiting Montreal. This restaurant has stayed true to its roots.... I ordered a quarter chicken white and it was as good as the first time I went over 40 years ago! Large meaty breast, tangy sauce, toasted bun and golden hand cut fries, with a side of coleslaw. Staff friendly and excellent service

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

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.
