While driving, and needing a quick sandwich, we followed the local crowds and went to Harvey's. The local police where there getting take out and the local paramedics had stopped for lunch. Anyway you look at it, where the locals go has to be good. The food is a step above most fast food and the service is wonderful.

Had lunch here as we were in a hurry. Cashier was prompt -- burgers were as expected. French Fries were warm. Overall -- the restaurant was a bit dirty -- could use some deeper cleaning. Food was definitely average.

I wasn't sure what to expect since I am not familiar with this chain and to be honest I'm not a big fan of any fast food joint. I was underwhelmed with the quality of the burger. It seemed like it was microwaved or something. The meat (beef??) was gray and gloppy. The bacon was good and fries were just... More

Staff very friendly and food hot with fast service. It is not a full menu Swiss chalet there is not a kids menu. The Harvey's has a kids menu as both of these restaurants share the same dining area.

As we approached the counter, the supervisor was giving grief to an employee and told us to wait. We were then told there would be NO chicken for 20 minutes (The whole Swiss Chalet side of the menu!!!). The supervision went back to criticizing the other staff member. We tried to get ketchup and were told to keep trying the... More

had their Christmas season special but no white meat available; chicken was over cooked. Had meal serviced in a take away dish even though I said I was eating in. Service was very slow and also had to ask for chocolates that come with the dinner

It's pretty sad to walk into a place and notice that the staff really don't 'want to be there'! The quality of the food was also sub par. The onion rings were over cooked and the fries were undercooked and it was quite obvious that the fryer oil was in need of a change. We always get the same burger... More

As always, Swiss Chalet a good meal when you have a salad too! Love the fare they offer. Almost all the choices of a larger restaurant, its is a good choice. Being a combined restaurant you will wait a bit longer usually, but staff is friendly and food is par to the establishment.

We felt like Swiss Chalet and entered the combo restaurant only to find they serve a very basic version of the menu. We were ok because quarter chicken dinner works for us but don't go in expecting much more. It's more of a Harvey's. Other than that the food was good.

I am semi retired and wanted something part time. Applied for a job as a food prep and got the job. I worked for several weeks and found the restaurant to be dirty. The owner was not in the restaurant very often but kept calling all the time normally during the busy time. One morning I was trying to prep... More
