Arrived last evening around 9 and were informed they had no chicken. Took a chance and ordered the ribs only to be disappointed as they did not turn out like the meaty picture or commercial they advertise. A disappointing meal and they even forgot the side . Now I know why we prefer St Hubert

This chain is usually a staple for a dinner out, but the same ol same ol doesn't appease me, so this place is the standby standard. Tried the roast beef meal and it was fabulous. So glad they have added this to their menu.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years, but never took the time to write a review. Basically, it is the typical Swiss Chalet, nothing special about it. Never had any issues with the food or service. Prices are pretty decent and they usually have a special based on the season or upcoming holiday. I'll keep coming back to... More

Great standard Swiss Chalet food. Chicken sandwiches and chicken dishes amazing as always. Pasta options are surprisingly delicious! Staff go out of their way to ensure a good dining experience.

Need a meal on the run so went to their take-away counter. The meal came very quickly and piping hot. The BBQ chicken was well cooked and very tasty. Will go again.

Went to have the new roast beef they advertise. Not at all like what was pictured in the T.V. adverts or social media. More like an overcooked pot roast - small pieces. People at the next table felt the same. Swiss Chalet should stick with what they do best. CHICKEN!

Eat here for lunch and the food is good but if you don't like chicken then don't go. Its what Swiss Chalet is all about. I enjoyed the food and the soup was excellent especially when it was -20c outside!

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?
