I had lunch here twice in the summer. Both times I had the double leg dinner which was excellent as always. Service was good, food was fresh and tasty. Everything up to Swiss Chalet standards.

Went for a quick meal after travelling all day. The line moved along well and the server was great. She brought our drinks quickly but the meal took over 30 minutes to arrive. The hostess was rude when we tried to inquire about our order. We were plotting our get away just as the meal arrived. The explanation we were... More

It is so comforting to know that this chain can maintain such excellence , no matter the location and whether sit down or pick up. We order if often for lunch at work and have it a dozen times or more over the year throughout Ontario when we are travelling too. Great stuff.

The overall quality of the environment here has gone down substantially over the years. The decor is dated. Management seems to want to cater to senior citizens (not that there's anything wrong with that) by not updating the menu to include some vegetarian and other dietary options. During the busy times, service can be slow. The host/hostess position, I believe,... More

As always, the food and service at Swiss Chalet are very good. Yesterday, however, was exceptional! My twin sister travelled 90 km to meet me in Cobourg (I drove 60 km from my home) and we met "in the middle" at Swiss Chalet. Our server, Julia J, was very attentive, kept my coffee filled, and gave us almost two hours... More

When you go to Swiss Chalet you always know what you are getting. I have been going to a Swiss Chalet since I was a child and things have not changed. For this, I am grateful. I know when I am in the mood for a quarter chicken dinner, I will not be disappointed as it is always excellent. This... More

I live in Quebec where there are no more Swiss Chalet restaurants. When I travel in Ontario I always stop at a Swiss Chalet to have supper. I was driving through on the 401 and decided to stop here. Impressive Brand new restaurant. Staff very polite. I ordered garden salad and 1/2 chicken. Salad is large, fresh and very tasty.... More

I did review this outlet before, after a previous visit over a year ago. This time we hearkened to the siren-call of their traditional 'Festive Special', and decided to try it out. I was in the mood to 'pig-out' a bit, and ordered the big 1/2 chicken dinner; my colleague had the 1/4 chicken & 1/3 rack of ribs combination... More

Went here last night with my husband a little after 7pm. We were seated right away, had a little trouble walking to our table, the floor was very greasy feeling and slippery. Our waitress took a few minutes to show up but brought us our drinks right away. I asked for the new roast beef dinner and was told they... More

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?
