Customer's reviews..
I got food delivered from this restaurant today and the staff couldn't of been more helpful from the person at the store to the delivery driver that delivered my food it was hot and fresh and I swear by the time I had hung up the phone that handsome and helpful driver was at my apartment door. Even through the mask I knew he was smiling and it showed he actually values and cares about his job. we carried on with some small talk and he went on his way never breaking the customer experience will definitely be ordering from here again!
This was our first trip back to Canada in over 2 years and came just for Swiss Chalet ... it was even better than we remembered!!! The food was delicious and well worth the drive from USA. Our server was Kristina ... she was excellent and made our visit very pleasant!! She was courteous and quite helpful ... hope we will have her next time we return!!

Kelseys $$
221 Glendale Ave, St. Catharines - L2T 2K9
Cuisines: Comfort Food Canadian
Customer's reviews..
Fast and efficient service at this location despite covid restrictions. However, I wonder if the menu has changed in the last 7 years because I don’t remember the food being this terrible. For instance, the chicken wings were literally drenched in sauce, it took an entire napkin to clean the fingers off after eating each wing. And the chicken fajitas were so bland, they did not include either salsa or beans! Those are staples for Tex-Mex dishes
Service was extremely slow, took 2 hours and had to leave before kids had sundaes because we just couldn’t sit there anymore. Took almost 25 minutes between when we finished eating to when someone appeared to ask us about desert/the cheque. They brought the wrong food for my one son - which thankfully they left off the bill but then my steak (ordered medium rare) was bloody, tepid and tough. Felt like it had been cooked from frozen - also charged me 2.99 for the mushroom sauce and it was hardly more than a thimbleful that they put on it. The waitress and manager were nice - but it felt like they were clueless as to how bad the service actually was. I didn’t want to make a big deal in the restaurant because we’ve all been through a lot during COVID but I wanted to post a review so that hopefully the kitchen can get some feedback on what medium rare actually is. That meat was completely inedible and likely would have made me sick. It should not feel like carpaccio… I took it to go to be polite but it will likely end up in my garbage which is such a waste.

Swiss Chalet $$
285 Geneva St, St. Catharines - L2N 2G1
Cuisines: American Comfort Food
Customer's reviews..
We have ordered twice from Swiss Chalet. The first time they delivered the wrong items, but since they estimated 40 mins to bring the actual order, we just went with it. The second time the meal showed up 20 mins late, was missing multiple items, and what was brought was cold. Customer service apologized for the missing items, but had no comment on why it was delivered so much later than expected (and this was a 4:30pm order), nor why it was cold. We will not be ordering again.
Place use to be great, men washroom stinks like a urine, no soap in dispenser to wash my hands with, manager was very unfriendly when we ask him why we could not get CAA offers which we use to get even with their specials. No wander place was practically empty, that would be lost time for us to dine in that place.???

Montana's $$

Cuisines: Canadian Comfort Food
Customer's reviews..
We ordered 3 dinners and nachos through delivery. It came cold and was missing one dish. I called and spoke to the manager who had it remade again it was barely warm, steaks were very fatty and the ribs were burnt in spots. Nachos could have been used for a door stop! Never will order again!
Service was great ? ordered the Burrito Bowl- good portion for the price and delicious would order again ! Also ordered house salad as a starter -was disappointed in it Was basically lettuce 1 slice cucumber, croutons , sprinkle of carrot and chopped tomatoes (not worth the $6.99)Lastly ordered the donuts, have had before, didn't disappoint ? . Have some left over for later !! Forgot to get pictures of main and dessert before started eating but did get pic of salad. Besides the salad was very happy . $30 to $50 avg per person

Just having dinner here. Amazing atmosphere. Very casual and fun. Staff here are very friendly and enhance the atmosphere. Very helpful. The food is absolutely amazing. The photos in the menu look like the real thing. The food does not disappoint at all. The drinks (beer) are ice cold and so good going down.Besides the food and atmosphere, I truly have to say the staff make this place a perfect dining experience. I am truly a fan now. Will return for sure. Thank you.

Customer's reviews..
Was really looking forward to eating here this evening, went in and gave my number around 5:30PM and was told the wait would be 45 minutes for a table, for a Saturday night that seemed not too bad! After waiting for over 2 hours without that notification text, we found somewhere else to eat. Some kind of message would have been appreciated.
OK I am IN LOVE wirh this place. It is so cozy inside amd intimate, small and a great place to make new friends . The food is just amazing . The burger and the schnitzel plate were fantastic . Jackie knows how to make great cocktails and the wines are from local wineries. Service was awesome and friendly. Will 100% be back .
