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!

This is a franchise operation, so no surprise as to the menu. You know exactly what you are going to get. I was there with children and they were comfortable and declared the cheesy chicken pasta the most delicious they had ever had. The service was excellent.

I always ask to make sure the chicken is freshly cooked and has not been sitting around for a while because I've been served dried up chicken on numerous occasions. I've also had problems with delivery orders. We like dark meat and that's all we order. I've received white meat again too many times to make it acceptable mistakes. Check... More
