Disgusting, rude and appalling!!! A supposed fun night out with friends turned out be a nightmare. On a busy Thursday night in Montreal city, a waiter and his manager manage to disgust a client to a level where the client just leaves the restaurant feeling...disrespected and extremely frustrated. Staff shortage at this establishment seems to force the waiter to work many tables at the same time. I feel for this waiter, the place is understaffed and it’s a busy night. But this does not justify his aggressive attitude, poor demeanor and overall lack of respect to the clientele. As I was raising my hand to signal the waiter that I was ready to make my order (15-20 mins of waiting on him) he shouted with the most sarcastic of tones: “I see you! That’s very annoying what you’re doing!” I did not hear him correctly as I didn’t expect that from him, my friends repeated to me what he said. I asked him when he approached: did you say that’s annoying? He replied with all the smugness in the world Yes. Aghast at this lack of hospitality I told him thank you for your time, I will not be ordering tonight. This made me feel very disappointed, and embarrassed in front of my friends. I asked for the manager, I instead got the “bald guy behind the bar” who did not listen to my side of the story and aggressively discredited my version of the story which is the dumbest thing to do as I was genuinely trying to give constructive criticism to help the restaurant self improve not to attack a waiter whom I know is having a rough night. I did not receive an apology but rather “leave we don’t care if you’re not enjoying your night here”. He assumed that I was the person out of line in the situation and didn’t offer to remedy the problem. Very poor managerial and communication skills. The understaffing is not my problem, so please advise your bar manager to become more friendlier and accommodating to customers needs and wants. Also please hire more waiters to accommodate the increasing number of patrons. Never have I ever experienced such a bad dining experience in my life.More

Amazing Celtic Band. Great atmosphere. Staff were excellent, and checked vaccination passports. NOTE: space is SMALL and no one was socially distanced. The bathrooms were quite dirty - one toilet was taken apart, there was water all over the floor.

This place is amazing to spend a live Irish night! They have great live music and you just can’t help but feel alive with all the people singing and movie around you. The staff are welcoming and helpful. And they have good Irish whiskey menu.

In the heart of downtown Montreal you can get a great pint in a classic Irish Pub setting. A lot of wood work and brick walls with several bars spread over 2 floors. The whole pub is divided into rooms and pathways reminiscent of old...Dublin pubs in Ireland. Great place to grab a pint of your favorite beer. Live music is very intimate in this kind of setting of small to medium size rooms, they can even have more than 1 live band at a time on busy nights. They have a full kitchen serving good pub style food. We tried the nachos, wings and burgers which were all good.More

We arrived in Montreal during the big snow storm this month so it was a little quiet. The beer was great and the food was good. I can see how this would be a great place to be when the weather was better.

We flew into Montreal for one night and after a few days of heavy steak dinners we wanted something more simple and comfy. Hurleys was perfect. Mish our bartender was great. Large selection of Irish whiskey and I didn’t even see a TV. It was...perfect. Music was starting at 10PM on a Wednesday but we left before. It was a perfect place for 4 of us to relax.More

Hurley's Irish Pub is a montreal institution and rightly so. The food, Brew, and entertainment is always great. I can not count the times I have been and do not care to know how much I have spent but it is worth every penny. I...courted my wife there and Bill and Irene are always very personable.More
