Received recommendation to go here. Glad we went, the smoked meat was excellent. The flavor was right on and the meat melted in your mouth. The smoked meat poutine was great and the house red wine was very good. Our server gave good suggestions. This is the best smoked meat sandwich I had while in Montreal and I had several.

I was so happy to finally have a REAL MONTREAL SMOKED MEAT place on the corner. Well that did not last long.. They have closed that location last fall and there is still a note in the window that they will re-open in the spring. The front sign is not there anymore as this winter I could see staff emptying...

We were taken here by our hosts. We all wanted to try Montreal cuisine, but do it in a casual way. We (10 of us) were seated at a tall table and we sat on stools. The Montreal specialty is "smoked meat", a cross between lean pastrami and corned beef; it can be sliced or shredded. I had Poutine with... More

This was an excellent recommedation from our hotel concierge. We stopped in for lunch and were not disappointed - we went back 2 times!! We were a party of 6 and were lucky enough to sit in the big booth at the front window. Dunns has a great atmosphere and is decorated just like it was when it first opened.... More

The decor and ambiance are great. We shared a smoked meat sandwich for 2. Meal was delicious with home made fries. We were in a hurry so the waiter gave us speedy service. So overall a great place to eat. Price is very reasonable, service and food very good.

WE were on the hop on hop off and the tour guide commented on Dunns so we hopped off. We were lucky enough to get a table right away. Ordered the Montreal Smoked Beef Sandwich Fabulous, I ordered the medium fatty one and it was heaven. Thought it was too big but managed to eat the whole thing

I took a bus tour round town (Grey Line - a bit chaotic, but we got there eventually!) and the driver couldn't praise this place highly enough. A very established restaurant and famous ro its smoked meats. I had a beer, soup, smoked meat with fried rice and an ice cream sundae for $ 20 odd and it was delicious!... More

If you travel to montreal and don't eat a smoke meat then you have misted something unique. Dunn's famous smoke meat is really great , not too dry not too juicy just right and they have a number of restaurant in the city.

The restaurant is 50's style, actually probably not renovated since the 50's, but it was quiet, mid day when I went there. The waitress was very nice and served us promptly. The menu had a Greek salad and the contents did not list any lettuce. Yummy, a real Greek salad. The dressing and toppings were very good, BUT the chef... More

Yes this place was good for its famous smoked meat. I also had to get the Montreal Poutine here as a side. First time for me and it was actually extremely good. Hugely fattening i am sure but what is good is not necessarily always good for you. This place is old school kitschy, but great service (we were there... More
