The dining room here is very comfortable and decorated in the traditional Swiss style. The menu is quite extensive.

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and immediately seated by the window, where we had a spectacular view of the lake. Our waitress was very pleasant and service was great.

We had come hungry, but, as it turned out, not hungry enough. We had two orders of the traditional Wiener Schnitzel as well as a Swiss House Burger. The meals were excellent, but huge. We all went home with a doggy bag. The three of us could easily have shared the two plates of Wiener Schnitzel and still gone home with leftovers.

This was our first visit to this establishment and we’ll certainly come back when in the area. Our experience here was very enjoyable.

This restaurant is gorgeously decorated and feels authentically Swiss. From the long horn, cow bells, wooden skis to the beautifully crafted bar, time in this locale feels like a breath of fresh (read Alps) air! The Sunday brunch fare was varied and delicious!

The Swiss country house is a great restaurant that never disappoints! We have visited countless times and have tried many items. I love their pickerel on the famous Tuesday all you can eat pickerel night! They cook the fish differently on this night than it is offered on their menu. The potato rosti is so good! We love the schnitzels and have recently discovered the cordon bleu. The fresh baked bread served before dinner is an extra treat!

This is a great place to eat. All you can eat pickerel night is one of the best. Buffets are amazing. Lots of tables and staff you never have to wait.
