Been going to Schwartz for over 45 years. Decor is not great but food is good.Depending who is cutting the smoke meat will depend if the sandwich is stringy or not. Sometimes a little too salty but 90% of the time is good.

Unfortunately the commercialization of this restaurant has ruined its food. The place is still packed...at times. The meat is dry, the line ups are long and the attitude of most of the waiters is as stale as the years they’ve been in business. Too bad!

Go here and get the smoked meat sandwich! so yummy! Get either "mixed" or "fatty". We had the fries, but the sandwich is enough to fill you up!

First stop in Montreal was for smoked meat sandwiches. We were seated at a shared table immediately and the food was served in under 5 minutes. Tony made some good recommendations and was attentive and made some friendly conversation. The food did not disappoint either!
