Doing a day trip from Toronto to visit a friend in Oakville Trafalgar Hospital and in spite of there being a Tim Hortons in the looooooooooong shopping centre in the hospital, I decided to catch the bus back to the Oakville Go Station, hoping to at least catch a munchie or coffee at the station, The bus stopped at Cross...

My family and I come here for our daughter's bday - she loves Swiss Chalet and we've gone to a few other location but this location is friendly. I'm not sure if the Asian lady who served us is the owner or the manager but she was accomodating and really nice. The location on Wycrofte is hit or miss- you... More

I don't know what happened but a reliable friendly place has turned into a run of the mill Swiss chalet/Harvey combo. Many of the regular staff are gone, portions seem to have shrunk, and it has lost the neighborhood feel. Perhaps it's just the transition to the "new way" but it won't get our past regular visits.

We have eaten at this swiss chalet in Oakville numerous times including in restaurant, takeout and drivethru. The staff is very friendly and fast service. Quality of the chicken is consistently good. A no frills good experience if you are looking for simple family food.

We spent the family day long weekend in Oakville and wanted to eat ribs for dinner. Our first option was Montana, but after reading so many bad reviews we opted for Swiss Chalet that was very close to our hotel. We were delighted with our choice! The food was plenty, excellent and well priced, and the service really good.

We had to wait for about 10 to 15 minutes before the waitress came. She spoke to us as if we were in our 90’s or very young children.We ordered the meal with stuffing and it was cold. The grandchildren ordered the ribs which were below par and hard to cut. My wife and I were both sick the next... More

It's been 6 month since we've been here last. We were worried they wouldn't get our order right, but they thankfully did! And on top of that it was cooked perfectly and for once the fries were not soggy or undercooked. We were very pleased with our quarter chicken dinners. Will definitley be back again.

You could run out of chicken at Swiss Chalet on a Saturday night. Instead of offering us roast beef and ribs they should have given us a free entrée or a coupon or something. Maybe let us know before we wait to be seated and sit down.

Here is word for word how my visit went. Host: Table for 4? Me: Yes, please Host: Ok, follow me Host: Oh, by the way we're out of white meat and running very low on dark so.... *Awkward Silence* I've been to numerous Swiss Chalets and none of my visits have been so negative.

This is the first negative review I have here. The wait staff was great but it's all about the food. I ordered ribs, my favorite, but it was 80% fat. Very little edible meat. My dinner companion had the rotisserie beef and again 80% inedible fat. I won't be back. Sorry

Thank Barbara C

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?
