How can you run out of chicken at 5 in the afternoon when your business is chicken and you get stuck in the drive thru because there are people in front and behind you that can't move and you're there for almost half an hour...More

Quickly seated and given menus. The efficient and friendly waitress took our order and was back in no time with the meals. The meals were served hot and tasty! Continue to enjoy good food and service

Food here is always good and predictable. Service is fast and friendly. You can never go wrong with the chicken here. Healthy options and usually just as quick as fast food even when it’s busy, which it usually is.

The chicken is very consistent. Not the absolute best but quite good and always the same. The fries have been disappointing. A lot of tiny pieces. Basically the bottom of the basket that should have been tossed out. This has happened a couple times.

Whenever possible we dine at Swiss Chalet. The Sydney branch came up to expectations. Side ribs and chicken with shrimps were a very satisfactory dinner.

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?
