Swiss chalet is known for the chicken, if you want to have a good meal, here is a tip,,,, order the chicken. The chalet sauce is an acquired taste, I love it, but some people don't .

We went in here for lunch on a busy Sunday at noon, and I'd certainly go back again. The place had lots of full tables, but the staff was working away serving everyone and keeping the place clean. We both had the traditional Swiss Chalet quarter white with fries and a roll, and everything was very good. The service was... More

Currently Swiss has a special titled "Two can dine for $14.99. It is advertised on TV and indicates that the meal includes chicken, fries and a roll. We visited the Lansdowne St. Peterborough location on Friday and were disappointed to find that the fries were considered a side, so the real dinner only includes chicken and a roll. We have...

We've been coming to this location for years, and always had good food/service, but this day was a different story. We stopped in for lunch, but were sorry we did and we left really disappointed. When our meals arrived, there were no condiments of any kind, no dipping sauce, nor butter and my side order was ice cold. When we... More

We went for New Years dinner. The waitress forgot our water, my Dad got his soup after he got his meal. No butter was given to us for potatoes, buns or veg had to wait to get some. Ribs come dry with no sauce. Chicken was good

We've been several Swiss chalet all over Ontario, even this one on a few occasions before. We first got the spinach dip with chips, it was luke warm and seems like a cheap version made some sort of soup mix or something. Then my wife had the hot chicken sandwich and I had the quarter chicken meal. Hers came with... More

The staffing is very light. We had wait and there were of tables. Someone needs o look at the operation as it is obviously a lack training and guidance from Cara Foods.

Decided to give it another try, big mistake. Slow service, poor food, especially the beef and ribs and noisy. Never again.

I like the chicken at Swiss Chalet but decided to try the beef that's being currently advertised. Unfortunately, like the ribs the meat was dry and average tasting. I thought the triple A rating of the meat would make it better but it didn't. Just stick to the ckikin!
