I heard a lot about this place so I said I must try it. There was a long line, but it was advancing at a dissent speed so I waited. I ordered the smoked meat house specialty. WOW that was so good I want to the store next by and bought some home. I never knew a simple bread-mustered-meat combo... More

We were told about this place from a tour we had taken. We took a taxi which was smart on our part because we were at a hotel by the train station downtown. We went late afternoon during the week. As soon as we walked in you could tell it was a GREAT place to eat. There wasn't a line... More

The 2 hungry travelers (my wife and I) chose this restaurant for our smoked meat dining experience. We waited in line for 10 minutes and were in smoked meat heaven for 40. I can not adequately describe how delicious our meals were. Our waiter was great as were the other people who sat at our table. A delicious meal at... More

Walked ages to get the "smoked meat" sandwich and was definitely worth it! It reminded me a bit of the pastrami sandwich from Katz Deli in New York but a little less overwhelming. I took take out as the queue for seating was quite long. You can also buy meat/weight.

This is a landmark of Montreal... its a must visit! The food is consistently great and I have been here 5 times in over 10 years. The service never lacks and I always take friends here when we go to Montreal!

at first it was a wonder to even hear of a small snack shop that had people queuing up outside. The owner of my B&B suggested that no trip to Montreal is complete without a visit to Schwartz's. I visited and actually stood in a queue for at least 10 minutes, something I never do. Boy was I glad I... More

So I've been to a lot of delis in my day and Schwartz's stacks up. Great atmosphere, with a group of 9 guys we all sat at the bar stools. The man behind the bar greeted us nicely, explained what they're known for and made sure we were all taken care of. The smoked meat was great, like corned beef... More

During our recent visit to Montreal to visit friends and then board a cruise, they took us to Schwartz's. It's nothing more than a "hole in the wall" with great tradition. The "smoked meat" sandwich was such a treat. The servers have been there since the beginning of time. The menu is limited. You are event seated with strangers after... More

Step back in time. A classic place in a cool neighborhood. An easy place for a tourist, such as me, to explore outside the norm. Our family of four sat at the counter, which was experience unto itself. Amazing service, food and history rolled into a single stop. Well worth it. Taking cabs, could be done in about 2 hours...
