Went in, ordered and waited in car for order. Got home and the chicken fingers which have been decent in the past were 3 small strips with pieced together something that might have been chicken. Called to speak with them and was offered a discount...on an appetizer. Apparently they we’re out of chicken fingers and substituted this…oh, and there weren’t any fries…More

We were there last night and were disappointed that their fries have changed. They seemed to be just your frozen variety. Very disappointing. Other than that it was good.

I live close by so often stop here for both takeout and dine in. Food is usually consistent (although got dry chicken one night it was really quiet). Friendly staff, clean place and very quick. The one problem I have with this place is the...clothing choices of the servers. Most of the women wear old, tattered yoga pants and one woman was wearing these old baggy shorts. Come on management, staff in a McDonalds are more professional looking than here and it makes the place seem dumpy.More

Have been going to this Swiss Chalet for many years and have always has a good meal with pleasant staff and reasonably priced meals. Is a big hit with the older population. Recent menu additions has kept it a very popular place to eat.

The beauty of chain restaurants is that you know what you're getting, and if you love chicken and ribs, Swiss Chalet is always a good, affordable choice which won't break the bank. This location has great service to boot, and friendly staff.

My family loves Swiss Chalet, despite some of my other reviews that talk about the importance of family-owned, independent establishments. I can't help it, I love their chicken and fries and this location did everything very well, with great, fast service to boot.

First time visiting the Swiss Chalet in Waterloo and it was definitely a good choice for lunch. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has large dining room so you don't feel crowded. Plus the hostess was lovely and helpful. For lunch I enjoyed a chicken...spinach salad - it was very good! The chicken was juicy and flavorful. The salad and dressing was lovely. A tasty and enjoyable experience!More
