Restaurant details
Dining options: Dinner, Delivery
Description: 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?

“Good; not great”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Ribs? Fair. Chicken? Good. This transplanted Texan has a high standard for bbq and these ribs didn't clear the bar...almost, but not quite. The rotisserie-cooked chicken was good, but not great. Honestly, Wal-Mart's rotisserie-cooked chicken is good, but not great, so don't expect wonderful things. I guess we got to the restaurant at the wrong time, because there was a long wait for the chicken. French fries were generous; slaw was not. Both were good. Pleasant enough atmosphere for a chain restaurant. Service was excellent. Prices were reasonable. While travelling through this part of Canada, you could do a lot worse than this restaurant.

“Good lunch wrap”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Like the chicken wrap and salad combo. They deliver for those stuck at the office. Nothing pairs up better with chicken than Swiss chalet sauce.

“Smoke in the house”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This location shares the kitchen location with a Harvey's and is a very busy location. On the evening we dropped in the place was full of smoke the wait staff told us that the ventilation system was still broken and they were waiting for parts. The staff are great, wonderful service, food arrived hot and tasted great.

This location needs a make over, starting in the washrooms, wait till you get home.

Parking is difficult to navigate, very tight with poor parking lot lighting.

“Excellent staff”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I grew up on Swiss Chalet and still love to come for the chicken. In Barrie recently I visited this location and was very impressed with the wait staff. They were fast, efficient and obviously working very hard to keep their customers happy. The food was great, as always. Busy location but a great place to stop for a fast meal.
