Ate at The Montreal Pool Room during Fantasia Film Festival. Old time Montreal atmosphere. Authentic Montreal Steamies and hearty Poutine.

Every time I’m in Montreal I seem to gravitate here. I love the hot dogs and the poutine is alright. Seems like the perfect combo after a night of drinking.

Stopped in after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Got the #4 two steamies (hotdogs) with poutine & a Coke. Dogs were done nice and the poutine gravy was Hot to melt the cheese curds. A good quick lunch. CASH ONLY!!!

For over 100 years people (mostly locals) have been coming here for; 2 steamies - all dressed - fries (or poutine) and a Pepsi. When you come to Montreal, you should too. For under $10.00, you'll get more food than you can eat and partake...More

Every trip to Montreal includes at least one stop at the Montreal Pool Room. While the 2 men working the restaurant never seem to be happy, the food is consistently good. The steamie (steamed wiener and bun) is really good when served all dressed. The...More

This is a very good greasy spoon where you can get a Montreal hot dog called a “steamie”. The portions are very good and the prices are very reasonable. I did not like the cabbage on my steamie but the hot dog was good. The...More
