Used to go to Swiss Chalet fairly regularly and always enjoyed it. Past few years tho it hasn’t been nearly as good. I think they are trying to offer so many other menu choices that they’ve taken their eye off the ball which made them famous - their chicken and ribs. I think their menu size has quadrupled in the past 7 or 8 years.
Went to Moxie's the other night. Food was really good but expensive- 7/10
Frequented Milestones a few times lately , my food was good, my wife's not so much- 5/10.....these guys would get a better rating if they would turn down the music. Maybe the beebop waitresses like it loud but at lunchtime when your crowd is all over 50, turn it down. We asked for them to turn it down and they wouldn't. Not going back. (Funny but at 7pm in another location the music was down low.) After one waitress would not turn the music down in spite of myself and a woman asking, I waited for my food and then every question she asked me, I said "What, pardon me. I can't hear you." She got the point. I feel like writing to them and telling them why I will not be going back.
Will never go back to Swiss chalet. First they got rid of their dry ribs and now all the food is terrible- 0/10
Too many of these franchise joints are the same with mediocre food. A family run place is the way to go. Stay at home and cook for yourself is best. I like cooking. I'm even starting to like my own cooking.
A friend and I used to go to the local Original Joe's, and the food was always good, and the service was always great as well. I ordered banana bread French toast, and it was awesome, but they didn't have syrup... I told them that was OK, but they gave me the meal for free... it was the second time in a row they gave me that discount. My friend moved to Alberta to be with kids and grandkids, so I don't go there as often.
