Whenever possible we dine at Swiss Chalet. The Sydney branch came up to expectations. Side ribs and chicken with shrimps were a very satisfactory dinner.

The food was great as usual but had to wait for over a half hour for the food to arrive. Waitress was awesome and the restaurant was busy but this was the longest time we ever had to wait for the food to come.

We stopped by the Sydney location while visiting Cape Breton. Nothing special about this location and honestly found the service to be just "ok" and the floor to be sticky. As a franchise the foods was consistent with what we know to be Swiss Chalet.

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?
