Myer Dunn Founded Dunn’s Famous Montreal Restaurant in 1927. Due to his unique recipe and high quality standards, Dunn’s Famous became a favourite among Montreal residents and visitors and has remained that way ever since. Today, we proudly continue his tradition of excellence by offering a variety of options including poutines, burgers, soups, salads, wraps and a host of other items that are sure to delight your taste buds.

Throughout the years, the one thing that has remained the same is our commitment to offering authentic recipes made from only the finest ingredients available. It is this unwavering commitment that has allowed us to remain a staple restaurant in Montreal. Every location and every employee is dedicated to offering the quality and service that Dunn’s is truly known for - “Real Food, for Real People.”

Although some things will never change, passing along the Dunn’s tradition from generation to generation is a change we embrace. Having recently taken on the role of Dunn's VP, Myer Dunn's great grandson, Andrew Kligman is more than up to the challenge of preserving one of the best restaurants in Montreal's rich history and tradition, while staying tapped into today’s fast-paced industry. With his father and previous generations before them as role models, Kligman is confident that Dunn's will remain that classic Montreal restaurant on everybody's list. Very few have that magical blend of superb quality food and an ability to adapt to changing times. Dunn's does. That's why we've been around for 88 years and counting.

With several Dunn’s locations available, we are spread out all over the city to make it simple for you to enjoy the delicious taste of our famous smoked meat as well as an array of other tasty items on our menu. We invite you, your friends and family to visit one of our locations and experience one of Montreal’s favourite delicatessens.

Bon Appétit!
