Food was good, bit pricey but ok. Service was good. Pleasant relaxing evening atmosphere. Not much else to state other than already mentioned.

I love Smuggler's. I was introduced to this restaurant back around 1995 when my uncle took me there. It was one of his favorites. Unfortunately, the last visit I had there was not up to what I expect from Smuggler's. There were three areas which did not align with my expectations. The first is the bison. While a recent post...

We visited Smugglers for a family meal and were very impressed as always. My three kids absolutely loved the salad bar and they really loved their meals as well. My husband had the prime rib and he said it was excellent, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The bacon wrapped scallops were great, as was the stirfry. The cozy atmosphere is so... More

Husband wanted to try this for awhile. Promptly seated for dinner reservation, but server didn't arrive til we were ready to get up and leave (which in hind site, we should have done). Placed our drink and food order immediately then went to the salad bar. For a small salad bar, it was a mess. Greens looked wilted, mushrooms brown...... More

This place used to be one of my favorite places for steak but I think they really are not as careful as they used to be when buying meat. Their brunch however is really amazing. (Reason for four stars)

Pre-flames games steak & open for suggestions. Were in the south & I haven't been to Smugglers since I am thinking 30 years. The old chateaubriand days when one wanted to get lucky on a date & a dinner. Back in the day the building was one restaurant not three. Walked straight into what use to be the lounge which... More

I invited 20 people for lunch. I pre-order too. The salad bar is great. My out of Town visitors including my local friends enjoyed it. The food, great portions, the place romantic love it. Our server has a loud voice and seems edgy but maybe due to serving large group. I am organizing another large group to come back next... More

A long standing favorite. One of the few steakhouses in Calgary that still has a salad bar. Great prime rib, good portions.

While visiting in Calgary, reservations were made at Smuggler's Inn for the Prime Rib & Yorkshire Pudding as it is getting hard to find a restaurant that serves yorkshire pudding. We were not disappointed in the least. The salad bar was terrific. Some may think that salad bars are things of the past, but I for one (actually our whole... More
