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 food is always great at Smughler’s. However, this time was a great disappointment. They got 2/5 orders incorrect and my family was done eating by the time my son and I received our food. I understand everyone is cutting corners to save money, but this was an epic fail.

    Walked in and was looking forward to the famous Salad Bar that was there for over 40 years. It no longer exists. Disappointed. Thought we would give the “Steakhouse” a chance. Looked at the menu and they had great steak dishes like Chicken Curry, Pasta with Meat Sauce and Jerk Chicken? Ridiculous concept. No one came to our table for 10 minutes, so we got up and left. Awful experience.

    We went for the Fathers Day Prime Rib Buffet and we were all sorely disappointed - especially for the price. The Seafood buffet table was entirely picked over, looked as though it hadn't been re-stocked since it opened. They served Mashed Potatoes & Yorkshire Puddings, but no gravy. The scalloped potatoes had Marble cheese on top. The Salad bar was 2 kinds of lettuce, croutons, crispy noodles, and 2 separate bowls of diced dill pickles. No cucumbers, broccoli, fruits, etc. The Prime Rib was quite rare around the outside and inexplicably well done in the middle (as if they had stabbed it with a hot stick). The desserts were soggy, there was a "NY Cheesecake" that was clearly a no-bake style cheesecake and tasted like pudding in a crumb crust. The buns and yorkshire puddings were tough and stale. And for some reason they had left out the Toast bar from the Brunch Buffet that morning (My reservation was at 7:15, so HOURS later). I paid over $300 for this experience. The ONLY saving grace was the server who was friendly and helpful. Will not be returning. Ever.

    Chose this restaurant for the Father's Day buffet - the man's favourite meal is Yorkshire Pudding. The buffet was a bit pricey for people that don't eat a lot but the selections were wonderful, especially the desserts. We were very happy with the evening overall and hubby was happy to have his fill of Yorkshire Pudding, although au jus isn't the same as gravey (although the steak soup worked well as a substitute).

    For a $74.00 per person the food should not have been basic and cold. It was a very disappointing experience, we will not be going back to smugglers. A very disappointed customer

    I would endorse that restaurant all the time. I was there on father’s day and it was a buffet. The last time there I had a steak and it was undoubtedly the best we all had never experienced.

    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.
