Superb sandwiches packed high with delicious smoked meats and others makes this a worthwhile visit for lunch. The portions are huge which is a shame as the cheesecake on display in counters at the front looked amazing but who has room?

Reuben's is a must go to for me whenever I am in Montreal. Their smoked meat sandwich is so good - the meat melts in your mouth and the bread is so fresh. The fries are also delicious. I just wish they had a half...More

The restaurant shares a name with another establishment further down the road, and I went in thinking these were one and the same - however, the other one was the one I wanted to check out first, and somehow ended up here. Just as well,...More

Don't bother to even open the menu. Just ask for the smoked meat special sandwich. An ice cold Reuben's red ale makes a very nice combination.

I had combo BBQ ribs and chicken, it was mediocre food that's served in large portions. The ribs were very chewy and dry on the outside, juicy and tender inside. Fast service and reasonable price.

Service was good and restaurant very clean but we were anxious to try the meat sandwich which was good and plentiful but not so thrilled with the pouting - using frozen French fries was disappointing!

Huge portions! Meat is fresh and juicy! Fully recommend! One of the best in Montreal! Good localization - city centre.

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

In Montreal, we used public transportation and walking exclusively. However, there are a lot of public parking and street parking around.

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
