The food is decent & reasonably priced, especially if you go for the specials. Good place to bring a herd of kids. The service can be... More

Turn left at CJ's Restaurant off Highway 2, turn right further down road. Plenty of parking. Good friendly service, very tasty food, especially the sauce, i usually ask for extra sauce as it is so good.

Love Swiss Chalet although I must admit I find the one in Cobourg mediocre at best. Food was fine and service good but the restaurant itself pretty bog standard with nothing of note at all. Was convenient for lunch but nothing more.

This is an older location that could badly do with a face list but you get exactly what you expect from Swiss Chalet - great chicken at a reasonable price

Hostess appeared to have had the ice cream fall off her cone but the wait staff were excellent. Food was abundant, hot and delicious. Very fast service.

Quick service. Extremely friendly staff. We were there for our daughters birthday who wanted the staff to sing happy birthday in the worst way. They came out with ice cream and a candle in it she was thrilled. We're given a gift card we were using and didn't know because it was her birthday she ate for free what a... More

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?
