Nice option for a late night meal with enough options for something light or on the heavier side. The "brisket" is more like a corned beef. Fried rice was good for someone who didn't want a lot of meat. Dunn's special hamburger was big and tasty. Looks like diner but with a full bar. Waitstaff... read more

Still one of my favourite places for true 'Montreal Style' smoked meat. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy our excellent sandwiches with a beer.

First trip to Montreal since 1957. Wife and I were with a former resident and he took us to Dunn's. If I lived closer I would eat there at least 3 times a week. The brined and smoked Brisket were absolutely great! It is a different style from my usual smoked brisked and it was great! Too bad I am... More

As the title says our smoked meat sandwiches were good but not fantastic. The portions were very large but the quality doesn't quite justify the prices which we felt were somewhat inflated.

Visited this place at the recommendation of a staff member at the Marriott. A place to enjoy Poutine and smoked meats, traditional Montreal fare. The place itself resembled an old diner. Pretty run down, " a greasy spoon" type of place. We all order some kind of smoked meat sandwiches and a version of the famous poutine (nothing more than... More

Supreme food, (I had the full-fat smoked meat while the others had medium or lean not recommended since it's very dry), fast and friendly service. The location is good and not too loud given that we sat outside. The place makes Montreal's reputation for being so food-worthy well earned!

Man the food here was so good. We got the poutine with the Montreal smoked meat and the Quebecois pizza. Both were excellent. Staff was really friendly and the prices were great. Definitely worth a visit

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
