Had the platter for 2 so we could try different things, everything was very good, nice smokey flavor. The brisket was very tender, could cut it with a fork.

After having listened to their ads for a few years, I finally got a chance to take in Rubs on Prince Arthur. It was delicious.

Our party of 6 thouroughly enjoyed the evening. Specialty drinks and great food. I indulged in the smoked burger with Brie, and wow, it was fantastic.

Our only good complaint was that the nacho platter, while exceptionally tasty, was a little cold. But that didn't stop up from devouring the whole plate.

Glad I chose there to celebrate my birthday. Would absolutely go again.

It’s a sports bar. A nice one but not exactly what I hoped. Food was good but not great. I would go back for a game.

good BBQ, Very tasty food. Tried mixed platter for two with brisket,chicken, ribs and pulled pork along with side of fries, slaw and beans. All was very good although portions were too large and could easily enough for 3. Only drawback was a little on pricey side although portions were huge. Overall would highly recommend.

We returned to Rubs for a second time. Everything was delicious! We had the Texas platter for four, and there were three of us who were very very hungry. We polished everything off and practically licked the plate clean. Sides ordered were smoked veggies (outstanding!), baked beans (soooo yummy!), spicy fries and coleslaw (loved that it was a vinegar dressing!).

On this second occasion the brisket was a tiny bit dry, but still very delicious. It was my daughters graduation from McGill, and the house sent her a gorgeous piece of cake, which she devoured! Many thanks!!! We love your restaurant for reliable and delicious comfort food that we can count on!

Everything was good, the food, the service. A very nice interior. The only thing that tick me was the ribs( there were dry and carbonized). We had great time at Rubs and I recommend it to everyone.

Overall, Rubs was a bit of a let down. The service was great and servers very charming and attentive, but the ambiance felt like a sports bar and not in a good way. Further, the ribs we were all so excited to try were extremely dry and difficult to eat.
My pulled pork sandwich was okay, but wasn't heated all the way through. The sides, with the exception of the fries, were really small portions. Indeed, my meal left more empty white space on my plate than food.
Came for a big delicious meal, but was sadly disappointed.

They were completely out of hamburgers and they offer no vegetarian options, even though it states portobello mushroom sandwich. Food was ok. The waitress was very nice. I wouldn't go back.

Hats off to the gang at Rubs! We were a rowdy group of firefighters and they did not disappoint. We were able to sample many of the appetizers and they all hit the mark, we enjoyed the blooming onion the most. For dinner John recommended the sampler platter and it was outstanding! Everything was expertly smoked and was still succulent and juicy. If you go to Rubs be sure to check out the Beef Ribs! We ate and drank ourselves silly until we rolled ourselves out into the cold Montréal night.

C'était vraiment succulent. Le personnels ont été très chaleureux et un des propriétaires à même pris le temps de venir jaser. Par contre, il n'y avait pas de client probablement à cause des vacances. Est ce que le service est aussi bon une fois rempli, je ne sais pas mais c'était tellement bon. Nous avons pris l'assiette Texan, incroyable.
The good was succulent. Staff were friendly And one of The owner came ans chatted with us. For a monday lunch it was empty (vacation Time probable) but i can't know of staff Will be as Incredible if it was packed. Anyways, we ate The texan plater for 2 And it was incredible.

I was at the downtown location recently with 5 friends. We ordered a wide variety of dishes from the menu and everything was outstanding. Service was good as well.
Their cocktail menu needs a rework I think; it seemed like everything included maple syrup. I had a cocktail which was basically Bourbon and maple syrup, and there was far too much syrup in my drink (yes, I mixed it well). My only other (minor) complaint would be that our table of 6 was rather cramped, and we would have preferred chair-height tables rather than bar-stool-height tables.

It was very good and a reasonable price. The decor was nice. The bathrooms were clean. I substituted fries for but it was such a tiny amount I wish kept the fries.
Everything very fresh. I would certainly go back again. Small but good choice for kids menu.
