My wife and my mother have similar birthdates and they both wanted Swiss Chalet. Others in the family were not so sure because of less than stellar service in the past. So we came with low expectations.
When we arrived at suppertime, we were seated quickly. They were very accomodating for our party of seven adults, one toddler, and one baby. The server made sure the toddler had a toy and booster seat, and a highchair was available for the baby.
The appy arrived quickly. It was the cheesebread which everyone approved of. It was warm out of the oven, and very tasty.
We waited a little longer for the main courses, but it came within an acceptable amount of time. Everyone who had the ribs just loved them. The chicken was nice, and the sauce seems to have improved. I had a side salad which was fresh and plentiful. In fact, everyone commented on the generous portion sizes.
Our server was quite excellent for a family restaurant. She was friendly, efficient, and attentive. Our bill came to about $180 (plus tax and tip) and that included alcoholic drinks for most of the adults. For seven adults and one kids meal, I thought that was acceptable.
Everyone left happy and agreed they would come again.
