A great steakhouse

Nice place, excellent service (thank you Billy) and one of the best steaks we've ever had; a nice thick cut with lots of taste and very well prepared. Good salad bar with lots of choices, great sides, all very tasteful, good wine and the price was very okay. The dessert menu is so good that you... read more

Front of house guys insisted we thank one of them for taking us to our table, and generally acted as if they were doing us a supurb favour by getting us a seat. It was pretty funny, not sure what was going on there. Food was pretty good, especially the salad bar.

I recall visiting this restaurant a few times many, many years ago. I was visiting someone who was working down on MacLeod Trail, so we thought we'd try a place for dinner not too far away. After an unsuccessful stop at another place, I saw that Smuggler's Inn was quite close so we went there. This place is a throw... More

We just finished eating a Sunday brunch at Smugglers and we were not impressed at all. We used to frequent this place years ago when we lived in the city, and since we were on an overnight trip, we thought we'd enjoy another nice Sunday brunch here. Enjoy was not the word I would use. From the rude host who... More

I have been here several times, and when I'm in Calgary I will drive halfway around the city if I want to have a good steak, because this is the place. With your meal you get access to the salad bar, which is good, although that isn't really why you come here. I must say, the service here, is quite... More

We've been a fan of smuggler's Inn since 1997, and it has been our "go-to" steakhouse, they were always consistently good, steaks were always done perfectly to our liking which is medium. But this was not the case yesterday, we went there last night for our friends and family Christmas dinner, 17 people altogether, my husband and I prdered the... More

I loved the atmosphere, giant throne-like chairs and the ambiance of a classic steakhouse. Great value and prices, something for every budget. We ordered the double stuffed potato and it was very dry but our server quickly corrected the problem and refunded on our bill as well as offered us a free desert. Lots of great wines to chose from.... More

My wife and I went to Smugglers for our anniversary. Neither one of us have bren there for over 5 years. I ordered Bison, and to say it was a disappointment was an understatement. The steak was fatty and tough. I'm not going to get into all my greivances here, but next time i want a phenominal bison steak, i... More

I absolutely love Smugglers Inn and have been going there for years. Every visit has been enjoyable. I love love love the salad bar, and almost always have the Prime Rib. And you can't beat the atmosphere. Very unique!
