Visited this location today. Party of 3, had the festive 1/4 dinner with which comes 5 Lindor chocolates (yum yum). One had the club house (so large couldn't eat it all) and the other had their chicken dinner. Waitress was friendly and service was prompt. We found the meals flavorful and helpings substantial for the money. Would go back when... More

Maybe the lesson is; Don't order a hamburger in a chicken joint. We dropped into the restaurant for a quick lunch on the way to Halifax. It was on the right side of the street for getting back out on the highway, and we've eaten in plenty of Swiss Chalets and found them quite good. But this cheeseburger was terrible.... More

Met another couple here for supper. Lots of new things on the menu. Two ordered the quarter chicken dinner all white meat discounted as CAA members. Other two had ribs and chicken. Delicious and great service as always.

Stopped for lunch after leaving our conference, arriving during lunch hour. Staff were quick and friendly, anticipating our needs. Food was delicious, and our waitress was very patient and helpful, even while busy with other customers!

They have the best chicken in town. Newly renovated and very clean. A great family restaurant. Their fries are also great.

We were looking for vegetarian food and discovered that the pesto pasta is surprisingly good. Also, baked potato/corn/steamed veggies works as a vegetarian meal, a nice change from Burger King veggie burgers and pizza as road food.

It's a Swiss chalet, we didn't expect a gourmet meal by any means. For what we paid it was good value. I had a hot beef sandwich with veggies and fries. The gravy was superbly salty and the veggies we dry and cold for what was supposed to be cooked. On a positive note the restaurant was clean and our... 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?
