Chalet in the Valley is an Austrian, Swiss and Amish cuisine restaurant in Ohio’s Amish Country. The restaurant is a real treat allowing one to get something not find at a typical restaurant. The building is a Swiss chalet overlooking the Doughty Valley. This restaurant really gives you an authentic and special feeling when you arrive in the parking lot and then enter.
We started off with sauerkraut balls. These balls were deep fried and contained sauerkraut and pork. A nice treat that came along with Dijon mustard. The mustard really complimented the dish. They also offer other great appetizers, like fried pickles, cheese curds, pierogi, and more. One item they have that is probably popular is cheese or chocolate fondue. This is made even more special as they are across the street from a cheese factory.
There are lots of great main dishes and they are known for their schnitzels. You can also get wurst, spaetzle, sauerbraten, sandwiches, salads, and more. There is a great line up of desserts.
The food was really good and had great flavors. It was well cooked and authentic. We loved the spatezle steak tips which had a great gravy. We also loved the sauerbraten which was tender and very tasty. Our meals came with pretzel breadsticks which were a nice addition.
The service was good and the atmosphere warm and inviting. This is s a great addition to any vacation in the area. It is nice to have something a little different from the other restaurants. This is really a great place to bring the whole family. You can get a great meal in a great location.
