We are new to Calgary and thought we would check it out for our anniversary dinner. The food was amazing. Our server Gerry (sp?) was absolutely amazing. I’ve never had better service anywhere. The food was delightful. We can’t wait to go there again, which will be soon and we have already decided it’s going to be our anniversary place each year. Thank you all so much!!
Our server, Justine, was excellent.
I still like their brunch but I missed the slow cooked brisket and I also wish they have in house made desserts.
Food was delicious and cooked to order, server very knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere was perfect for our Anniversary night!
Hadn’t been to Smuggler’s in 22 years. The food was fabulous! The menu has lots to choose from. The restaurant is a bit pricy but in line with any good steak house. Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Our service was not great and very slow but it could have been an off night. Will definitely be returning soon.
The salad bar. 1 soup was good to go the other 2 they couldn’t figure out how to get the warmers to work so the soup was stone cold. The bread was under cooked on the bread sticks and old stale buns. The salad part was ok.
The entire. The prime rib was very poor quality definitely not prime maybe grade A at the best the potatoes seem to be way over flavoured with parsley maybe. The broccolini was almost raw not even cooked difficult to eat. The Yorkshire pudding was dried out and very old.
The other meal sirloin steak sandwich was the worst piece of meat I have seen. Very poor quality meat tough and hard to eat.
These place was very good 20 years ago. I suspect the cost of food and them cutting corners has turned this into a bad dining experience. Don’t waist your time here. Both me and my wife felt ill after eating.
Smugglers is always great. Been going for many years and never had a bad experience.
Food was superb, service fantastic, and ambiance just right! Our waiter checked up on us regularly, filling our water making sure everything was just right! The value for what you get is phenomenal and e continue eating as smugglers as they never disappoint!
Second time being back and it didn’t disappoint! Had the bacon wrapped sea scallops to start, hubby had beef ribs and I had the bison entree. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic :) The salad bar was fresh and tasty and because we were early (around 4:00pm) the bread was super fresh (just brought out and warm). Service was top notch also. Will definitely be back! Thank you Smuggler’s! :)
I brought young family members who had some questions about steak cuts. Our waitress was wonderfully knowledgeable and gave them the exact right amount of information for what they wanted. The steaks are always cooked perfectly here. Soup and salad bar is really good.
Loved everything, it was our 39 th wedding anniversary and they gave us a dessert to celebrate
At no charge
Food was excellent and service was very personable.
The decor of the restaurant needs to be redone. It’s old and tacky. Giant chairs were horrible. Lighting was too dim. Salad bar was poorly labeled. Soups were unremarkable. Meal was lukewarm is temperature. We exchanged mash potatoes for a plain baked potato & were charged extra. Ridiculous! We used to come here when I was a teen with my family. Sadly we were disappointed and it was our 26th wedding anniversary.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Great waiter. Good times.
My wife and sister in law had some food problems but was looked after right away. I will be back again, our server was great kudos to her. Thanks.
This is a great restaurant for a family gathering. There is something for everyone and they will make vegan and kids meals if you ask. We celebrated a birthday and they provided a complimentary desert complete with a candle for the birthday girl.
They were very accommodating when I called to change our party from 14 to 20 to 17, our server was amazing and did a fantastic job at serving so many of us at once not a single mistake even when it came to all separate checks. AND THE FOOD! oh boy the food was amazing definitely worth the price.
Amazing prime rib. Best deal on a Sunday! Sunday feast is the way to do it! Amazing salad bar and incredible soup with homemade bread! Would definitely go back!
Great morning out for brunch with family. Service was wonderful start to finish and the food was incredible. We will be back for sure!
As usual Smugglers was amazing, took my sister and her husband there and they loved it. The service was great, the food was outstanding. We will be back!
Restaurant was so dark we could not even see the menu. Ordered steak and found it to be dry and over cooked. Salad bar was poor with bag lettuce and had very few choices. bacon/ potato soup was good. Our server was very attentive and friendly.
Second time to Smuggler's Inn in two months and again was very impressed with pretty well everything about the restaurant. The choice of meals was great, but the prices were very reasonable compared to other steak houses in Calgary. We ordered two entrees, one was the ginger chicken and the other was cajun blackened prime rib. Both meals were outstanding. The cajun blackened prime rib was ordered medium, but came to me medium well. I'm assuming it had to be grilled and seasoned after it was cut from the roast and hence the medium well done. But it was still VERY moist, plus I was quite surprised at how lean the meat was. This was suppose to be the smallest size for the blackened selection on the menu, but If could not eat all of it as it was too much meat. Needless to say we were too full to order dessert.
Food was good as usual.
Smuggler's Inn is a frequent visit for us for a nice evening out. While it can get quite loud, overall the experience is worth it. Food is top rate, have never had a bad meal there. You can't go wrong with Prime Rib, ever!!
Chris looked after us very well and food was great as usual
We will be back again
Celebrated my husbands birthday! Food was delicious, service was fabulous, our glass of water was never empty! Salad bar is a bonus to the meal! And mud pie was the dessert given for my husband’s birthday, more than enough for both of us! We eat at Smuggler’s often and are never disappointed!
Smugglers never fails to impress. I eat vegan which is odd going to a steak house but their salad bar is great. I do miss the cauliflower and a few other menu items that used to be in the salad bar. Overall great place and great experience.
Our family of 4 went to Smugglers on a Sunday especially so we could have the Prime rib dinner.
With the soup and salad bar and desert included it is a great deal and is always good.
The staff are friendly and service is excellent.
Excellent service!! we would and have recommend this restaurant to friends and clients.
Bill and Anna Laney
Epic service and the quality of the food was amazing. Can’t wait to come back. Variety of food and attention to ensure the food was fresh. Exceptional!! Thank you.
Great professional service .
We arrived shortly before closing time so the restaurant was quite empty, but even so the service was fantastic and we did not feel rushed at all. The food was to die for, and out server's wine recommendation was on point . Overall, a fantastic experience - we'll definitely return!
Great food, ambiance and service. The salad bar and soup always tastes great and is the best in town. The prime rib special was perfect. Great value for your money. Can’t wait to go back.
We ordered calamari for starters. It wasn’t hot and crispy. The main dishes were the smugglers cut prime rib and filet mignon. The prime rib was really delicious and bigger than I expected. The filet mignon was a little bland to our taste. A little bit more seasoning would have helped.
Amazing food. Great all around experience
Salad bar could be a meal in itself! But the reason you go is for the buttery melt in your mouth prime rib. (Tip; order big! You can always take home what you don't eat!)
Took out of town visitors. Loved the salad and soup bar. Prime rib excellent. Wine not so much
My daughter-in-law was very happy to find a vegetarian soup as one of the three choices on your buffet which she said was delicious. We were celebrating a family birthday and appreciate the varied selections on your menu. Everyone was happy.
My husband and I went for out anniversary and truly enjoyed! Great service, great atmosphere and great food!
Great food, great service!
