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.

    Unfortunately, it was not a seller night. We were not seated in the traditional area. It was loud and bright and looked like a low-end lunch cafe. The sides were barely warm, actually the water was warmer than the sides. The prime rib was good, and the brisket was lacking in flavor. The choice of bread was dry buns, with butter hid on the dessert table with 1 knife that was filthy. The chicken dish had tongs to serve it, but it had a sauce so you couldn't get it. There were no clean forks for dessert, and all they provided was a large soup spoon. Really disappointed with Smugglers for a $75 per person buffet, I really expected better, I would not do it again.

    It was busy I realize it’s Father Day but service was poor. Didn’t get any refills of coffee dishes on the table piling up. It was an ok brunch but felt ignored.

    The food was great but the service was poor. After the server took our brunch entree plates, she said “I’ll leave you to the dessert buffet” and we never saw her for half an hour. She had served us 1 cup of coffee when we sat down and we ended up having to wave down another server for a refill at the end of our meal. The poor service was really surprising. Smugglers had always had great servers. We will come again because the food was wonderful. Hopefully the next time we will have better service.

    Was disappointed that there was no salad bar anymore, one of the best things about Smugglers. Then we were told no more bread service. The new menu was minimal for selections & prices very inflated. 4 people, 2 appies, 4 drinks & 4 entrees & 1 dessert was $298. Ridiculous

    Flavours were good. Service was good. However, I took a sip of my drink to find a hair in my mouth. There was more hair in the glass. So disgusting. Sent it back and got a new one. They still charged for it. My husband's steak was great. My steak was a really small '6ounce'. Tasted ok. We came out rather disappointed after really looking forward to it.

    Amazing service and food at lunch! The kids menu is delicious and not the usual chicken fingers & fries. My granddaughter had pasta with bolognese sauce, she loved it. I had the English cut prime rib, so flavorful and tender. The smoked meat sandwich was a hit as well.

    Sunday brunch with my parents was disappointing. Set price of $33 for a limited breakfast selection. Buffet is dessert only and although everything looked wonderful, the flavors were rather bland. The pastry basket they brought to our table was very basic and dry, no butter or jams were provided. You have to pay extra for coffee or tea. Our server was friendly enough, but service was slow. By the time she came back with cream the coffee was cold. Ground pepper would have been nice on the eggs, but by the time she came to check on how our meal was we were half finished. We will try another restaurant before going back to Smuggler's. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff friendly, but it's not what we were hoping for.

    I had the braised short rib with mashed potatoes and broccolini and it was delicious. i also had the root beer float for desert the root beer cream on top was my favorite part. The desert was beautiful and tasty. The server we has was lovely and very helpful as we had person with severe allergies at our table, she made sure to double check with the chef to be certain that my friend would be safe with her choice of dinner.

    The renovated space is bright and cheery. Once the restaurant realized they were short staffed for the number of customers, they added 2 more staff to help with table service. Food was excellent I loved the Smoked meat sandwich
