Does anyone have suggestions for special, kid-friendly dining experiences in Montreal? (More inside)

I will be taking a large family (with several children under the age of 12) to Montreal later this summer. Thanks in part to the Hive Mind, I have a lot of promising ideas for attractions and events. However, it would be very helpful to hear suggestions for great places for families to eat.
In terms of criteria, we are looking for places that can accommodate a crowd of 8-9 people, most of which are children. We are looking for places that are "special" to Montreal, if possible, and we have a high tolerance for adventure in terms of cuisine. We are not particularly interested in anything too high-brow or too expensive, but if there is a must-have, tremendous experience to be had, we do not mind shelling out for it. Also, campy is fine. We would not mind a dinner theater, or a noisy sing-along pub. So long as the place is welcoming for families and not part of a fast-food chain, we would be interested.
I have heard that poutine is a local favorite. Is that worth seeking out, and is there a restaurant that serves it and would fit the description above? I have read that Fairmount bagels are worth a try, and that there is a terrific pastrami place worth visiting. There is also a portuguese rotisserie chicken spot that gets raves on yelp that we were planning to try.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
