Unbelievably good smoked meat. A guilty pleasure going back many years to a misspent youth where 3:00 AM Smoked meat at Dunn's was the way to end the night. It was good then... It's still the same! One thing has changed however. The mile high cheese cake is no more but the pint size version tastes just as good. We'll... More

perhaps the meat itself is not as good as Schwartz's or Jarry but we went back to Dunn's because of their selection for non-beef eaters. At lunch, their specials are a good and filling option.

4 options we chose Dunn's and what a great surprise. My companion was dying for Canadian French fries and we lucked out with the best. All meals were plentiful and glad I shared a sandwich Ruben was huge and excellent- pizza was just as tasty- looking around everything looked fresh and more than one can handle. wait staff was attentive...

Dunn's is most famous for it's Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, which are second to none. But their cheesecake is on the same level. You better be very hungry because that cake is extremely filling. Even a thin slice is more than most people can eat at one sitting. Absolute heaven.

When in Montreal, one must eat Poutine. Since this is my first time in the city, I stopped some locals and asked them where to go for my introduction to this iconic dish. They all said, "Go to Dunns!" So I did. It's got a bit of a divey diner vibe, which I liked. The service was attentive, and I... More

We went to Dunn's because the restaurant next door was packed and with having a six month old had no room with a stroller. We sat down right away outside with no problems with the stroller. The service was great our waiter was super nice and friendly but my only complaint was that we ordered for an appetizer Dunn's platter... More

Went here with 4 people, and while I didn't get the smoked meat, I was told it was really good. Along with the poutine. It was overall a pretty good lunch, it was a little more money than we had wanted to spend on lunch though.

We ate at Dunns in Montreal for dinner and we found the service to be great and the food to be very good. There were four of us and we each got something different and all were satisfied. The meat was tender and tasty.
