Stopped in to this place on the corner of a bustling Crescent Street, although Dundees looked fairly empty for a Saturday night. Nice night out, so a lot of people opted to eat and drink outside. Once you walk in, theres the bar and a few tables, then more tables in the back area. Nice setup, albeit a bit tight at places.
Selection was not that amazing, considering I had just stopped at Hurley's down the street. Montreal's local beers, and I ordered a pitcher of Sleeman's Honey Ale, which was very good. Nice pour and tasted great, so the quality got a good score, but overall the selection was nothing very impressive.
The service was apathetic - not necessarily in a bad way, but they neither cared to go above and beyond, nor did they really need to. I wasn't expecting anyone to hand out life lessons, but the waitress and hostess spoke politely and was knowledgeable on what they had and did not have. Nothing amazing.
The place looks like a great place to meet up with friends and unwind. Not very loud at all, considering the zoo running wild on Crescent. I wouldn't highly recommend it if you were looking for a quality selection, but if you're stopping by to have a drink, this is a nice, convenient stop.

I've been here a few times but yesterday was the first since being in the craft beer world, so here goes!
We came at around 6PM & it was pretty much empty so atmosphere-wise, hard to gauge. When you enter, you have the bar section first then you proceed to the back of the restaurant if you are coming for a meal (which me & the family were doing). The restaurant is on the corner of Maisonneuve & Crescent so the wide window gives you a nice look of the intersection as both streets.
Evrything is nice & clean with lots of Stella Artois, Guinness etc.. memorabilia.
The beer selection is average because there's only Labatt, InBev, etc.. (Guinness, Stella, Kilkenny, Leffe...) I will say that you do have a selection of 16 beers on tap, so that's something. Took a Leffe Brune, which i hadn't tried yet. I noticed they called Alexander Keith's a Microbrewery (COME ON!)
I ordered a Roast Chicken Baguette & the wife a House Salad. Food arrived in less than 15 minutes so top marks for that.
Food was good & prices are a bit high IMO, but reasonable when you take into consideration the other chain restaurants around the downtown core.
All in all, a rather pleasant experience, just don't expect too much from the beer selection. It's definitely the service that will make me come back if i chose to.

I sheltered myself at Dundee's in the late morning of Dec 16th, the day 40 centimeters of snow fell on the city. When I walked in with my luggage, the staff welcomed me in from the snow by taking care of my luggage and warmed me up with smiles. One waitress in particular (whom I might add was pretty cute) was caring to my every needs, and the service was quick. I enjoyed it so much, I came back the next day for their $4.95 pint Monday. Food is pretty good, their "outback" breakfast dish was the standard bacon and eggs. The beer selection is somewhat generic, with InBev offerings (Hoegaarden, Leffe), Sleemans, and Rickards "highlighting" it. Many of the offerings are served in their own glass; my Hoegaarden was poured in its branded hexagonal glass. It's not really a place you go to for the beer selection, but it's a warm, friendly place overall.

Not a bad place, but there's lots better places in this area. If you need a quick casual meal though and a decent brew to go with it, this isn't bad. Kinda a TGI Fridays menu, the food is tasty and bountiful but nothing all that interesting. Pastas that I have had were good, so was the Poutine, a Canadian favorite. Beer selection is pretty solid. Leffe, Hoe, Kilkenny, some canadian micros and some other UK beers round it out. All served in proper glassware. I don't know what it is about Canada but it seems like even the chain restaurants care just a little bit more. Kinda a paradox since the US has more micros and imports easily available.

Stopped here while I was in Montreal for my two year anniversary with my girlfriend. We had just arrived and were starving.
Multi-leveled seating here, big windows with a view of Cresent Street and the hordes of people walking by, going to the nearby clubs and assorted nightlife.
Dundee's was just like any other chain restaurant, but did have a good selection of Canadian beer, which I was pleased to see. I sampled some of the local brews with dinner and wasn't disappointed, but wasn't wowed either.
I give the service such a high mark because the waiter was very friendly, courteous and treated my girlfriend (who is Deaf) with total respect which I have to appreciate because I don't see it all that often. He got a very good tip.
The food on the other hand was nothing special, just something to fill your belly before pouring pints of beer down your throat.
I would go there again if I needed a quick bite with friends before heading out to the bars, but I woudn't make a special trip to get there.

This is a pretty cheap English bar in downtown Monreal. The atmosphere is cramped, small, and very woody. The quality of the beers is good, but they only offer the very major beers of the town. Guinness, Bass, Tartan, Double Diamond, etc (no Youngs or Fullers on tap :-( Service can be fast or slow depending on when you go. This place is usually pretty cramped at night, because it can only comfortably hold 20 people or so.
An 'O.K.' place
