The food was not as good as we were expecting but the ambiance was great from the Swiss horn on the wall as you enter to the fireplace with cowbells. There are goats in a pen with some little chalet huts off to the side of the restaurant and Guggisberg Cheese is across the street in a picture perfect building. The clip clop Amish carts go by often and the view is charming.

We arrived just before closing and were happy they seated us. The food was terrific (bacon cheese burger on pretzel roll and schnitzel), service was fine.

Our first choice restaurant was closed and we were hungry so we were intrigued by the Chalet in the Valley. It's kitschy and cozy. Food is PRICEY for the value in my opinion. I can see my mom loving the place since it's Swiss-ish cuisine. A mix of Amish and Swiss. Usually I don't eat that kind of food - lots of carbs, fried, meat heavy dishes but if that's your cup of tea, it's pretty decent. We couldn't finish the food so as I said, come hungry! (maybe do some hiking first). But the decor is fun and it's a nice place to warm up in the fall/winter.

It is a little different than all the other "Amish" restaurants around. More of a Swiss feel and some different dishes. The Salad Bar has two nice soups and a pretty good cold food selection. I like to eat there when i am tired of the others that are all alike.

We were recommended this as somewhere to eat. My memory of Switzerland is a little hazy having gone there as a child in the early 60s, but I'm sure it wasn't like the 'Chalet in the Valley'. Someone has tried to conjure a 'Disney view' of Switzerland and plonk it in Ohio - what is wrong with genuine Ohio in Ohio?

The young hostess was miserable; perhaps she felt ill or it was the end of a long day. The food was passable, but over-priced for what it was. Mercifully, our waitress was very pleasant. The complementary pretzel was good though.

Give it a miss and go to the Amish restaurant in Walnut Creek - far better.

Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit with us.
Contrary to your statement, our restaurant is the result of much history, tradition, culture, and experience. Mrs. Guggisberg, who grew up in Austria, longed to share her beloved childhood recipes with tourists and locals alike, and Mr. Guggisberg, who was from Switzerland, hand-carved much of the beautiful woodwork and decor you see around the restaurant. Their memories of life in Europe is what shapes our atmosphere.
We apologize that you did not receive that impression upon your visit with us, and that our goal was not evident. Many people are not aware of the fact that the Amish originally came from Switzerland, which is how our culture ties in so easily to Amish Country and surrounding areas. We simply wish to share our culture and offer something different to our guests. You will find us much different than the surrounding Amish-styled restaurants, because that is not our identity.
We apologize that our hostess was not pleasant, and will be sure to address this matter to ensure the experience we hope for every customer. We're so glad to hear that your waitress was pleasant, and that you enjoyed the pretzel bread. While we would love to offer our guests pricing that each individual finds appropriate, we must cover our costs in order to stay in business, as does every restaurant.
Again, we thank you for your review and hope for the opportunity to serve you again soon.
