I spent a couple days in Montreal, and made a couple trips here as it was only 2 blocks from our hotel.
Similar to other brewpubs in the chain, cozy and comfortable. 2 sections (bar and restaurant), plus an upstairs, visited both sides.
They only brew 4 styles (Blanche, Blonde, Ambre, Brune) and a specialty/seasonal but did not have one on at this time. Was hoping to find the new bottled brew 'La Belle Province', maybe next time. They do a sampler with all 4, which we tried. All beers are solid, but don't expect anything too over the top.
Service was good and our glasses were never empty. Did not have any food, but the menu looked pretty good.

Vibe- I sat on the Patio, so I can't really speak to the Vibe of the inside, but the Patio was very relaxing. Despite the constant flow of people directly to my left, the feel of the place was very comfortable. A fantastic spot to sit back and enjoy some microbrews.

Quality- Overall, the quality of everything was great: The beer was the proper temperature and very tasty. I had a 32 oz. Mug of the Blonde and a 21 oz. Mug of the IPA. Both were top notch but I really enjoyed the Blonde.

Service- The service was excellent and very prompt. Props to Felix for being an attentive waiter and also providing a little small talk to go along with things. It's always nice to have a waiter/waitress who convey a sense that they enjoy doing what they do.

Selection- Don't expect a huge and varied tap list as this is a microbrewery, but among Les 3 Brasseuers beers, there is a good amount of stylistic variety. There's a few blondes, an IPA, a brown, a Stout, and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. To be honest, I sat down with the mindset that I wanted Chicken Wings, so unfortunately I can't really comment on the variety of food.

Food- For Food, I got a pound of Hot Wings and an order of French Fries. Both items arrived in a very timely matter and were very tasty. The chicken wings were nice and crispy which I always enjoy. The sauce was the perfect amount of heat and flavour. The order of Fries wasn't huge for the price, but I suppose nothing is cheap in Montreal! Other than the quantity, the fries were quite good as well. No real complaints!

O- Overall, Les Trois Brassuers was a great pitstop to break up a day of walking around Montreal. The beer was cold and flavourful, and the chicken wings/ fries really hit the spot. I wouldn't hesitate going back when I get to Montreal again.

There is often a fairly long wait despite the fact that this is one of the larger locations. It's almost cavernous. Because of it's location it's heavily frequented by tourists, and I guess that's where almost all of their thriving business is coming from. With that said, service is normally rushed, and thus quite curt. The food can also suffer as it's not possible to put out all of those dinners so quickly without error. I don't blame the servers for walking away from you when you don't know what you want, and I don't blame the kitchen for any flaws that slip by (who are we fooling? They know, they don't care!) - I blame the customers for falling into this trap! There are plenty of other options available, seek them out and remember that something that might look far on a map is probably really not. Montreal is a very easy city to get around in via Metro with just a few blocks of walking after your stop. I was forced to go here with my group because it was right nearby and they were hungry, and it was the most miserable dining experience I had during my trip. If we'd walked just a few blocks south we would not have had to wait, and the food and beer would have been much better.

This is a pretty big place. Even with a reservation, it took a good 20 minutes to get a table. There are two floors with are pretty massive with one bar at each level. We were seated at the second level. Atmosphere was good as there were a lot of people and wasn't overly noisy. The selection is their standard colors plus the Belle Province which only comes in bottles (and is overpriced) and a seasonal which was the stout i tried. Service was friendly but very slow despite being close to the waiters' station. Didn't have any utensils so had to flag the waiter down. Overall, it's decent with stable but uninspired beers.

Tried this place while visiting Montreal. Wasn't going in with high expectations.

The brewery setup is right by the front door, in an incredibly cramped space. No idea how they do it in such a small space. Barley is seen stacked throughout the place. Obviously the brewery is as much a part of the marketing of this place as the final product. Otherwise it's a decent sports-oriented pub. I can dig it.

Beer would be a let down if my expectations were any more than middle of the road, please everybody brews. Not unflavourful, made skillfully with no off-flavors, but generally on the boring side. Had a specialty available - the Munich. Besides a vague German weizen yeast kind of flavour this place oils pass for a vague amber.

Food was fine, but only just. Again, unremarkable but inoffensive. My flammekeuche was a bit softer than I'd hoped.

Service was efficient, food was fast arriving, but staff was curt and on the brink of inattentive. No info about beer. It was busy, but no one wants to feel like getting us out is more important than taking care of us.

Overall it's what I expected given the reputation here, but it's always a bit difficult seeing talent seemingly wasted on uniformity.

I was initially surprised that it was smaller than the Toronto location until I realized that there are a few locations in Montreal. Smaller bar in particular. Montreal culture doesn't encourage many people sitting at a bar talking to the bartenders, rather the moving of drinks. Service was good because it was before big lunchtime crowd. Buzy times are after work, people are not so much session drinkers these days in town. Same old selection, four basic beers or your maple syrup bottle with a Patriotic French Canadian name.

The atmosphere was pretty nice. There was a lot of dark wood, a long bar. I grabbed a stool at the bar and was greeted by a bilingual barmaid. French was obviously her primary means of communication, but she pretty much understood most of what I asked her.
There are only 4 selections here - Blonde, Ambree, Brune, and Blanche. I tried both the Blonde and Ambree. There were decent beers...nothing quite earth shattering about either of these brews.
The service was ok - it was quite busy, but the bartender seemed more interested in speaking with her boyfriend than anything else.
Overall, not a horrible place, but I expected more as I initially did not know this was more of a chain in Montreal. So, if you go in knowing this is a chain brewpub - it isn't half bad.

My wife and I stopped in here on our last visit to Montreal. To be quite honest she needed to use the restroom I saw this place and I thought I would take advantage of the moment and have a beer. It was pretty much what I thought it would be.

Atmosphere- It was beautiful in side it was almost your typical urban chain Brewpub but not really. I hope that was not to confusing. It had that chain feel to it. More than a Rock Bottoms but less than a Hops. It had a French Euro meets American practical look to the inside with wonderful high ceilings and a great bar centrally located in the middle.

Quality- I only had one beer due to the time but it wasn't bad. I had the Blanche. (I have not got to it yet in my beer notes but will post a review later).

Service- Was mediocre at best. The waitress did not seem to know a lot about the beers and wasn't really willing to talk about them either. The place was not busy and it took a while to get one beer.

Selection- There was only four beers on the Menu. A Blonde, Brune, Blanche and Ambree.

Food- I did not get a chance to try it but it did look and smell nice.

Price- I thought it was about right for a Brewpub in a tourist area.
