The service was excellent. The brunch buffet was mediocre. The roast was medium, but it should have been a bit more rare. Some of the other dishes were a bit dry, or overdone... There were some items that were very good and very tasty, but the quality of ingredients never lies. The desserts all looked really good, but upon tasting them I was disappointed. Again, the lack of quality shines through. Way too sweet and fake flavors... However, I'm not too disappointed given the price point, but my honest advice to smugglers Inn is to up the quality level of ingredients and charge a few extra dollars to cover the cost of the better ingredients. The customers will not mind paying a bit more if they are getting quality all around...
Smugglers never disappoints!! Excellent food & friendly service always a given!! Love the salad bar!!!
We love the salad bar and the meat is delicious and super good
My party and I went found that the food was either not being replenished or the food that was out had been out for a long time. We went up several times to see if “fresh food” had been placed and it hadn’t. The ham, beef and omelet was fantastic, the rest not so much. Definitely not worth what my party paid.
Smuggler’s always has a menu of fine
Dining. The service is inpeccable. And the palate appeals to refined tastes. We love Smuggler’s!
My waitress was amazing, I can’t remember her name but she was new ! So friendly and beautiful!! Would love to have her again!!
We have not been for at least 25 years. The service and the food was as good as we remembered
Overall good experience. However I ordered the Halibut and it was dry, the scallops and shrimp were overdone. Bread was good.
Great service, very personable and intimate. The steaks were cooked to perfection and with the soup & salad bar, there was no need to order appetizers. But the marinated mushrooms were very good.
I have been a fan of Smugglers for decades and was meeting some work colleagues for a 10 year celebration. Food and service were both excellent, and we all had a great time. I'll be back!
We made a reservation quite early because we had other plans that night. It was very quiet (around 5) so it was pleasant and we had great service. Even as it got busier around 6, the service didn’t suffer :) The food was really tasty and the prices were comparable to similar restaurants. Good value for the money. We even signed up for their rewards program that shares rewards between them, Bolero, Open Sesame, and a few others. Will definitely be back! :)
We had a Great Time at Smugglers and our server was Great , Thank You Derek . You made Our son-in-law and daughter feel special for their anniversary dinner . Thanks Again and We’ll definitely return .
Overall our experience from the restaurants side was excellent. Our main concern was the table next to us that has loudly playing YouTube videos that mere making animals being slaughtered noises.
The only tough part was our table (awesome right next to the fireplace) was quite a distance from the salad bar and we had to walk past the entrance to make our way to and from. Got crowded and we were carrying hot soup.
This place is amazing, just some unfortunate circumstances made our dining experience less pleasurable.
Good food & great service!
As usual, great food, great service, and great ambiance! The only negative is those huge, heavy, hard to maneuver chairs!
We celebrated my husbands birthday here, we have been coming since 1976. The old saying “if it isn’t broke don’t fix it “ has been applied here, I’m really glad that they haven’t changed things. The only thing I would change would be to make the lighting a little brighter. 😊
Love this restaurant, served best prime rib steak in town. Salad bar is not good as before, refill is not quick enough on Sunday night when it was full house. Dessert is too sweet. Service is excellent, and our server is friendly and efficient.
An early Father’s Day dinner with my parents, as my husband and I are out of town on the actual day.
Good service, good foods, high decoration stycle and reasonable price. I really like this place.
Great service and amazing prime rib
Always had good meals there, waiter was super friendly.....keep up the good work!!
Birthday lunch for my wife. The food and service is always top notch at Smugglers. I have been going there for over 32 years and never had a bad meal. I would highly recommend Smugglers Inn.
Most enjoyable. Our waiter was efficient with a great sense of humour. Because our food was late being served we received a free desert. Lovely.
The salad bar is good and the bison that I ordered came with a very delicious sort of compote. The server brought us a delicious ice cream cake for our friend’s birthday. No regrets and no disappointment here.
As usual, good food, good service, great place to take friends or associates. I have been coming here for decades and have never had anyrhing less than a great meal. Keep up the good work!
Great food and wonderful staff. We could not ask for a better place to meet family and friends. the food is fantastic. This is our go-to restaurant and they always give excellent service every time.
the manager is one of the best.
Food and service was fantastic
It was the first time for my family and they loved it! Will be back!
Unfortunately the meat was not as I ordered it. The same as my last experience at the restaurant. They were very quick to take it back and make it right but for a restaurant that specializing in steak,roast etc. I am disappointed.
Waiter was good. The noice level was out of control. A large table of a few ver undisciplined children were up and running around, screaming ,crying and fighting. It was so loud another table next to us asked to be moved. I think the manager could have been skilled enough to get the parents to take control of the children without offence! Disappointed as smugglers is my favourite place to celebrate
If I were in a great rush to get to my next venue, the speed of service would have been great. We were in & out in an hour. I hadn't even finished my salad when we were told our meal was ready. I would have preferred a bit of time between courses to enjoy time with my husband and to enjoy our drinks. Otherwise, as always the food is fantastic and we love this restaurant.
Perfect for a Family Sunday Brunch
Good food Great Service
Would definitely go again
Your customer service is excellent! We were so happy, and enjoy our gathering.
I love going to Smugglers it's my very favorite restaurant no fault of the restaurants lots of kids there when we went on Saturday I go to go away from the kids so little bit noisy for me
Friends in town to enjoy the exceptional prime rib at Smugglers.
there once a week because it is so goodxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
This place used to be good years ago, but it’s awful now.
As always, Smuggler's never fails to impress!
As one of the long established mainstays in the Calgary restaurant community, Smuggler's has stood the test of time. During a recent visit, my wife and I were treated with friendly, attentive service, great food, and a convivial atmosphere. The dining room was quite busy with graduates and their families celebrating their successes, but the service remained up to the usual high standards, and the food was everything we have come to expect since our first "Date" here some 36 years ago! We opted for the Prime Rib which has been the cornerstone of the offerings at Smuggler's since day one, and it didn't disappoint in it's presentation, accoutrement, and flavour. Our server, Marco, brought our meals to the table with expert timing after we had had just the right amount of time to appreciate the salads we had selected from the options at the salad bar. It was all too much, however, as we were unable to save any room for desert. Next time!
As always Smuggler's food and service were excellent. It doesn't matter if you go for lunch or dinner the food is fresh and tasty
It would be nice if you had a separate area for clients with small children as being an upscale restaurant unruly children can spoil the occasion.
Always a treat to go to dinner at Smuggler's. The only item which I found not to my expectation, is the salad bar that came with my meal. It appeared there were some items missing from the salad bar and a few other items which needed to be replenished. Just seemed to be less attention paid to the salad bar than should have been. Other than that, the meals we ordered were great and met our expectations.
