I have been to this location many times over the years. I always stop here for lunch when I have a chance. The staff is always friendly and the meals are always hot. Swiss Chalet has a new policy regarding their after dinner hand wash. Unless you ask for it, they no longer provide it as a standard part of... More

Very poor service. The waitress was annoyed when my wife asked for hot water for me as they didn't have decaf coffee. When it came it was not very hot and didn't include a cup. My wife never was asked for a refill of her coffee. The vegetables on all plates were undercooked and mine was barely warm and RAW,... More

I took my family here for a late Valentines and for my parents' anniversary because we always come here for special occasions.

As someone who graduated and work in Tourism... More

My husband and I have eaten here more than enough times to have given this place a fair shake. They have recently renovated BUT the service is just terrible. A couple of their waitresses honestly must hate their jobs. The food was not what you would expect at Swiss Chalet as this chain is one of our favorites...but not the... More

We had a Treyaki Chicken Vegetable Stirfry. It was excellent. You could taste the full flavor of each vegetable.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to let us know your feedback on your stir fry. We actually do get a lot of comments on this dish, people are surprised that we serve more than chicken and ribs. We hope to see you again soon. Jackie mckeown More

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?
