Even though we have lived in Montreal for almost a year, this week was my first visit to Schwartz's. My party of 3 was able to be seated immediately about 12:15 on a Monday. Old Diner atmosphere, and you share tables of 6 with other diners. There isn't a large variety on the menu but what they... read more

We enjoyed lunch at Schwartz's on Sunday before heading back to Toronto, the smoked meat was outstanding but the line to get in was long and the tables very were very crowded. I am glad we tried Schwartz's but we probably won't go back.

Went to schwartz's late saturday night to grab a sandwich. Was told, in an extremely rude way, that they're cash only, and had to wait almost 10 minutes for one take out sandwich despite the fact that it was nearly deserted. The meant was extremely dry, and completely flavourless. I'm being 100% honest when I say I can name at... More

Best smoked meat I've ever had in my life! If you go there, make sure to try their cherry cola! They don't have options for the bread on the sandwiches, but they're not famous for bread, they're famous for their smoked meat!

Had the chance to eat here for the first time last week. Arrived on a Friday just before noon and only had to line up a few minutes outside the door. They come to get and seat you at a table with others. I ordered a meat plate, pickle, fries - these were all gluten-free (I skipped the bread). You... More

On the recommendation of a few friends, while in Montreal this weekend, I checked out Schwartz's. It was easy to tell where it was because of the line up on the sidewalk. After waiting about 15 minutes, and not getting much closer to the front of the line, my friend and I decided to go in for the take out,... More

We visited Montreal from Georgia, US and spent 2 days. We emphasized that we didn't want to waste a meal while we were there. Schwartz did not disappoint. Luckily, we did not have to wait and were able to get a seat at the bar. The waiters/cooks were friendly and told us the history of the establishment. The food was... More

It's really just a kind of fast food place. Not a spot to linger by any means. So write it off for a romantic date. Which is why I only give it four, rather than five rating, it just barely makes the definition 'restaurant'. On the other hand, the staff are super-friendly, the food is wonderful and the experience is... More
