John for Johnathan ... and Michael for Michael. What better than the first name of his two sons for creating a second restaurant, John Michael 's Pub! One is good, two is better. Indeed, Gio Trattoria Italian restaurant close by is the family. Well worth a visit, in fact it is just off of here! At the heart of Place Jacques -Cartier, John Michael 's Pub offers a casual, simple and fresh food menu of refreshing drinks, and of course ... beer. We are a pub after all! The ideal place to enjoy the festivities of Old Montreal. We await you dear friends and dear friends!

The menu came in hard copy but we were told the only way to get the drink list was on the Qr code. Turns out there actually was a hard copy drink menu. But instead of just offering to get it the waiter decided he would give us a tech lesson on smart phone. I resisted. He insisted. Finally he agreed to a hard scoot menu after giving us a lesson about google tracking no matter what you do. He clearly misunderstood his role in our relationship; guest/server. We tipped him well anyway but won't go back or suggest. He appeared needy of the tip. Food was a B attempt at great burgers. Overcooked. Average for a five guys.

For a pub the drinks were very disappointing; my wife asked for a vodka martini and the little glass was barely half full and did not have much vodka. I asked for a gin and tonic; they asked which kind of gin so I chose Hendricks. Hendrix has a very distinctive taste and I didn’t taste it! They also used soda water instead of tonic. All I tasted was the soda water; no tonic no gin.

We enjoyed the smoked beef and the fish and chips. I added poutine to my order and it was really tasty. They were limited on their IPA offerings, but I think that is more Montreal in general. The server, Dominique, was very friendly and efficient.

My burger was undercooked (pink in middle) but they fixed it. That does throw the meal off with timing, but it was OK. There with two kids and they were welcome and it’s loud enough we didn’t have to worry about disturbing others.

Both the food and drink’s menu are extensive (you WILL find something to eat or drink of your liking), and the food is very well prepared. The place is cozy and the music is in that perfect level where you listen to it (and identify what is playing), but you can talk normally and the person across the table will hear you without the need to be loud (I didn’t listen to anyone from other tables). But the best was the service: the waitress was super nice and extremely efficient with all orders.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted, so I asked our server, and he suggested the pulled pork poutine. I have had poutine 5-6 times and have always been disappointed. I decided to try it, and I wasn’t disappointed this time. It was delicious. My wife had a feta cheese and blueberry burger. Yes. You read that right. She loved it. I would highly recommend Pub John Michaels for sure.

I had the John Michael’s Burger! It was fresh and fun. Our server, Max, was excellent and informative. He gave us lots of room, but was friendly and attentive. This was my third birthday dinner and was a welcome change from the up-scale dining of the previous two nights. High quality, reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. Thank you.

We sat for 45 minutes, at first thinking it was just busy, then people seated at the table beside us got served within 5-10 minutes. Must have just been poor communication among the staff, but no one even came to check on us so we left and went to BreWskey which was much better.

The special was the short ribs which were to die for- melt in your mouth and flavourful. The recommended locally brewed beer was excellent. It was on a Joey street (early November) that looked out tv park type area and monument so nice to enjoy a little people watching. Dessert chosen was La Choco. It was nice light cake but would have been nicer warm.
