Great food, better service and live blues – it cannot get better than this …
Smoke Meat Pete has been a staple in Ile Perrot since 1997. Starting in the basement on Blvd. Perrot and moving to its current location on 1st Avenue, the cozy restaurant is filled to capacity on most nights.

Kenny Dupree, James Green and Jimmy James provide a blues- based potpourri of great tunes as the three primary hosts.
