Great experience, the staff was wonderful food even better. The new management may be a little green but make up for it with the tentative customer service. We will be back again with friends.

You won't be disappointed by the food and views here. The menu is great, atmosphere is great, makes you want to put the keys of your car away, call a taxi and stay a while. If you are a boater then all the more reason to make sure you stop here while visiting the 1000 Islands.

My husband and I went out for dinner here and we couldn't be more pleased. Our service was wonderful, we were never left needing anything.. And our view was absolutely gorgeous. We had dinner on the patio and the atmosphere was so enjoyable, everyone was always smiling. Our food was fantastic - hats off to the chefs! We will definitely... More

I've already written a review and it notified me it was not posted so here I apologize if it actually shows up twice. We were passing through and came upon this little gem and I'm so glad we did! The view is beautiful the service was great and I loved the food. I don't understand how people could say anything... More

We were a group of nine adults and seven kids. When we arrived we seated ourselves, found it hard to find to tables to seat the two groups, we found the service was extremely slow (we had finished our food and our friends food came just as we were ready to leave), tables were not washed properly (food particles were...

Hi there, I apologize for your disappointment at smugglers. We actually have a sign on the door asking for guests to let the servers know they are there instead of grabbing a dirty table in the middle of being cleared so we know you are just getting there and not just finishing. We are very busy and have constant guests... More

I havent sent my food back in a very very long time, until today. Service was friendly but inefficient. I watched people get up and go inside to get their own drinks. In the past, this place has been very good but not now. It changes hands every two years so I will wait this out and hope the next... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant to take friends to. Sadly, I will never return to this place again. For $15. I got a pre-packaged processed tasteless chewy, very thin hamburger with no bacon, no cheese, no tomato - just a small piece of wilted lettuce (I could have had shredded carrots on it but chose not to). The... More

Everything at smugglers is made fresh, there is nothing pre packaged or frozen. All burgers come with lettuce and tomato, one burger has cheese and we have an option on the menu to add bacon to anything. All you have to do is ask your server when ordering. You could have had shredded carrots on it but chose not to?... More

This restaurant is now under new management and I've heard they have no restaurant experience. Managers not even on site. It shows. Really bad menu and inattentive waitress. Slow and disorganized service. Spelling mistakes on menu. Not a very good selection. I won't be back! Poor poor poor. Waited twenty minutes for another beer. Even longer for our order. Don't...

We apologize if the service was slow when you visited. Yes we do have brand new owners as of this year and had only opened a couple days before your visit so staff was just learning the menu and computer systems themselves. The menu is all new with different daily specials and I can assure you there is a manager... More
