Steakhouse
Originally established in 1974, Smuggler's Inn has been serving Alberta prime rib to several generations. Always a popular place for Calgarians to gather and celebrate, we are the preferred dining choice for birthdays, anniversaries, milestones or just meeting friends and family. Our prime rib is the main feature of our diverse menu, available all day, every day any way you like it. From a 9oz. prime rib, all the way up to a 18oz cut, our succulent prime rib is sure to please any appetite. Of course there is a creative selection of steaks, chicken and seafood to satisfy everyone. It would be a great idea if you saved room for one of our delicious desserts...even if you plan on sharing.

    The staff is extremely nice and accommodating. The place is cheery and updated and seating was comfortable. I ordered the Eggs Benedict and unfortunately there was no much on the plate and 15 fries mostly the ends of the fries . There was only one piece of back bacon on the english muffin so did not cover it and very little hollandaise sauce to even cover the egg and english muffin. I really had high hopes at this price the food was sparse and basic. Please work on presentation and just a little more for a price tag of about $150 for 4 people. I wanted to recommend this brunch but just can't. But again, staff amazing and pleasant.

    I booked Mother’s Day brunch a month in advance for my family to take my wife and mother-in-law out. we were promptly greeted and seated, our juice and coffee order taken, then we were shuffled to a much smaller poorly located table, as there was apparently an error seating us at our initial table. This felt like a severe downgrade. It took approximately 20 minutes for our juice and coffee to be served. The food and selection was pretty good, but at over $50 per person the service was very poor. I’m disappointed, would not recommend the brunch at Smugglers, and will not be back.

    The food is consistently delicious, the service is outstanding, and the decor (we prefer the lounge) is beautiful and fresh and bright. If you want a moodier vibe, the dining room is a very cool old tavern style with big dark chairs.

    The service was outstanding, and we loved the atmosphere of Smugglers, and the table we were at was cozy and quiet enough for us to chat. The food was a miss though. We were there for Saturday brunch, and the eggs weren't cooked as requested (I asked for very soft poached, ended up with hard, other person at table wanted medium and ended up with super soft). The steak and eggs was good, but the Viking Benedict was a complete miss. Such a small amount of smoked salmon and lobster hollandaise sauce (no lobster detected in the sauce) and the English muffins were not edible (so hard that I couldn't even cut them with a steak knife). I mentioned this to the server and she thanked me for the feedback, but I didn't want to make a scene about it. The hashbrown/potatoes tasted great but they were just barely warm. The desert bar was great, with a lot of choices. I REALLY wanted to love this place, but with a bill of $140 for 3 people (no alcohol), the value for $ was not there.

    Disappointed that the weekend buffet no longer exists, understandable with the current economy. However with that in mind I expect excellent food with was an utter letdown and not worth the time. The server was great she helped in full experience and very knowledgeable and friendly! The person who can to serve our food was rude as I expected some sort of hashbrown with my breakfast and received fries/ wedges. When I questioned this he said “well it is what it is”. Honestly discussed with his response! I’ve been an advocate for Smugglers Inn since 2012 and I recommend this recent visit but I honestly would come back or recommend it any longer.

    Came in for a brunch on a Saturday. Service was very slow. Food was overpriced and not that good. I had the steak and eggs which was ok. My kids got the traditional breakfast and they barely touched it. The egg and sausages weren't good. $17 for a kid's traditional breakfast (egg, 2 sausages, toast) is a little high. The server did not even tell us that the kids' drinks were included with the price. They had a buffet style for the dessert which was kind of nice but the desserts were ok, nothing exceptional. We were there for 2 hours and it was not that busy. There was probably 2 servers for the entire restaurant at the time, which was probably why it was slow. Probably will not return.
