A total adventure from entering (after standing in line outside) to eating melt-in-your mouth smoked meat and chatting with staff who are often too busy but always pleasant. Don't miss Schwartz's!

I love it when a place you hear about and read about as an iconic do not miss spot actually delivers. This was the case today at my lunch at Schwartz's. The beef sandwich perfect, the fries done right. You sit at tables with your group and others too, kind of fun. About a 15 min wait to get in to get a table.

Service is old school, kind of brusk, deli style, no frills, but it worked just fine here.

I loved it and can positively recommend.

Oh, the dill pickles were huge, more dill that hot, but tasty nonetheless.

It is a Montreal’s institution for sure.

Smoked meats are generous in portion. It is not dignified; but, really, who cares. It tastes good!

My husband had the smoked brisket sandwich (which he rated as ok), but we both thought the poutine (regular) was delicious. The fries were thick and potato-y, the gravy hot and flavorful, and the cheese melty and gooey. Even my toddler was enjoying it. Yum! Recommend using the takeout entrance in the left of the shop instead of waiting in the long line. Just enjoy your lunch on one of the many benches nearby.

One of Montreal's landmark. If you are visiting Montreal, you have to try it. It's not the best looking place but the smokedmeat is incredible. Hint # 1 : the 'recommended' drink is Cherry Cott (kind of a cherry coke) Hint #2 : don't try to go for lunch between 11:30 to 1pm or supper between 4:30pm and 7pm.. the waiting will be terrible.
