“Not great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Their is so much good smoke meat in Montreal, and this place is way over rated! The amount of time I waited was just not worth it to me.

“Great smoked meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Got the number 3, the smoked meat sandwich as recommended from other travelers to the locals. Glad I did, an awesome sandwich and Montreal icon. Had my sandwich in under 3 minutes and was out the door in under 10. Service is fast, but friendly, they have to be with a line going out the door most times. Bring cash, no cards here.

“Awesome Smoke Meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Fantastic smoke meat! Super pickles! My dad says that the steaks and fried liver are great to!
Definitely not a fancy place but the place is steeped in history!
A "must do" if you are visiting Montreal!

“Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The smoked meat in Montreal is excellent and there are many good restaurants in the city that specialize. We went to Schwartz's for the atmosphere. It's crowded and busy, but a fun place to be. You'll definitely meet new people! It's quite far from the downtown - it was farther than we thought from the map! We went at 2pm for lunch and there was a short lineup. I'm sure it's lined up around the block for lunch or other peak times.
