First of all, I'm American and not deeply acquainted with poutine. I actually didn't know there was a separate term for french fries and cheese curd in gravy. Nor did I know the universe of ways you can provide said dish, with Philly cheesesteak toppings, or waffles and fried chicken, or bacon and eggs. But I can say that this... More

Ordered a small poutine. Barely any cheese and no gravy...it was just a frie. Really not worth spending $6.00 on this. Won't go back.

My wife has wanted to try poutine for a while, so while on vacation in the Adirondacks we decided to drive into Ottawa for some real poutine. We picked this place with the help of Trip Advisor, and my wife really enjoyed the poutine there. It's a small informal place, and all they serve is poutine. The staff were friendly... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Smoke's. The hardest part was what to choose to eat. There was a poutine to suit everyone's palette. I chose Montreal smoke meat topping. Delicious.

Definitely 'Fast Food' but tasted good! Some seating available and the decor is cool. Very nice servers. Lots of various poutine flavor options, including vegetarian. Good value and quick service

Home cut fries but gravy tasted like it came from a can. I asked for a cup of water (for my medication) and got a 2 oz. cup like 5 min. later. Music so loud, when I asked to have it turned down, the customer service guy did not look impressed. Not much selection, around 8 to 10. Poutineville has... More

We asked our friends for a spot to try this local favorite and got steered here. As other reviewers have said... they have a huge selection of options to spice up your fries, curd and gravy. There were four of us and we all chose different ones. Bacon Cheeseburger, Triple pork, Traditional and Pulled Pork and we were all happy.... More

We tried 3 different ones. Its a salty treat. We shared the medium sizes as by the time you get to the middle the richness of the many flavors is to much for me.You can dress it up like a burger. Everything from pulled port poutine, steak and cheese and mushroom, cheeseburger poutine.... its a treat.... but thats it for... More
