Fantastic food and great service! I had the fish and chips and my husband had the Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich... the amount of food we got was unbelievable! The staff there - I believe his name was Joe, was fantastic. He was quite attentive, very old fashioned style service and was fast. Great atmosphere and we didn't have to wait... More

Recently had a quick lunch here with a colleague. We were in and out relatively quickly, which was perfect. Despite the busy restaurant, we had quick efficient service. I had a smoked meat sandwich and it was plenty for lunch with nothing on the side. My colleague had poutine. The menu was extensive and a bit overwhelming, but something for... More

We visit Dunn's on our infrequent trips to Ottawa and we're shocked at how expensive it's become. The food was good, especially the fries, but their jumbo smoked meat sandwich with fries and coleslaw is way overpriced at $17.99. My husband had the liver and onions, our friend was disappointed they had run out of fish and chips by 6:30... More

We were staying at the Lord Elgin Hotel and decided to have breakfast at Dunn's on our last day in Ottawa. The service was slow as we had to wait over half an hour for our food to arrive even though they weren't extremely busy. The waitress was cold and unfriendly and seemed completely unable to multitask. The food was... More

I love the Dunn's Famous Deli in Montreal and was pleasantly surprised to see one in Ottawa. The food is always very good and the wait staff were excellent too.
