The portions here are big. Unless you plan on singlehanded chopping down 50 trees after you come here then I suggest you considering sharing! The hot spiced beef sandwich is really excellent and the beer is good too. Great service

We stopped here for lunch and I was so glad we did. The Reuben sandwich was so good and stacked high with meat. We were so full when we were finished. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

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?

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

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
