I took some friends to SC for dinner. Three of us ordered fish, one chicken and one chicken fingers. When the fish came it was so overcooked that the batter shattered when you tried to cut it. The fish had absolutely no taste to it...More

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.

Just ask the restaurant you’re planning to buy the gift card from if they Honor the card anywhere in Canada. I don’t know but I would think so since it is a national chain.

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?
