We have been to Smugglers in the past and had very enjoyable meals. This was our first visit in 2015 and will be our last. The menu is at the standard of a lower end burger bar and the presentation was even lower. What a disappointment and an embarrassment as we had a guest from Europe with us.

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

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...

SmugglersBarandGrill, Manager at Smugglers Bar and Grill, responded to this review

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
