Unfortunately we just stopped in for a snack so we had a drink and a poutine. Would have liked to have ate more, but we didn't have much time. Poutine was great and service was quick and friendly aswell.

My husband and I popped into this place after watching the Canada USA juniors hockey game on New Years Eve. We ordered a couple beers and the smoked meat egg rolls and for him the smoked meat poutine and I just went with traditional poutine. The food was so very good, the waitress was super friendly and the atmosphere was... More

This is a good place to go for a quick lunch or a late night snack if you like deli. There are certainly partisans of Schwarz' for the truly BEST smoked meat, and perhaps they are, but no line here and it is right downtown!

The LL and I were starving on a cold Saturday morning, and Dunn's was the perfect solution. We warmed up with a well proportioned Bloody Caeser - that was a great starter! The LL had the traditional breakfast (Bacon & eggs ), and I opted for the Eggs Benny -Dunn's style - made with smoked meat. Both were excellent, and... More

Heaping sandwich with great service, what more could you ask for?! We went before a hockey game so it was very busy but they handled it well.

There is a reason why Dunn's is famous for their Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, and there is no better place to have one than in Montreal! I've been eating at this restaurant for years in Ottawa, but this is the first time I've visited in Montreal. Great smoked meat sandwiches and excellent poutine with fast and friendly service. I also... More

After a late-night flight, my nephew wanted to experience "Montreal" cuisine close to our hotel....so Dunn's was one of few alternatives...it works, but only if you are tired and don't have the energy to head to another neighbourhood!

After hearing of the Montreal smoked meat sandwiches for several years, it was great to visit this place which has been around since 1937. Very good service, a good sized portion, and it tasted great. A little bit crowded with table close together, but perhaps that is part of the experience. Well worth the visit for either lunch or dinner.... More

I was there earlier this week before a hockey game with a couple of business associates that were in town from Winnipeg. While this has been a regular stop for me on trips to Montreal for years, neither of them had ever been before. If you're looking for authentic Montreal smoked meat, you can't go wrong here. We all ordered... More
