Used to be a place to go - no longer. Over the past few years this place is going down - prices are still high but value not so much Server a bit snappy and than went on to say it was due to her finger being broken - not my problem salad bar is just basic bar - nothing... 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

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!

My family and I met here for brunch and we couldn't have picked a better location. For a party of 8 adults and 4 children, we were very comfortable and happy. The salad bar is better than most i have been to and even included a couple of delicious soups. Most of us ordered prime rib and we were all... More

Smugglers serves brunch Saturday and Sunday from 0930 until 1400 hours in the bright, well lighted Tango area of the building. The menu varies and there are weekly updates on the website. Food tables are arranged compactly with moderately sized service bowls and plates allowing for frequent refills from the kitchen. Food quality is like plated service without the "tiredness"... More

This place brought me back to the 70's with the king chairs and professional servers. Haven't enjoyed a steak dinner like that in many years. The prime rib comes highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. The salad bar wasn't huge but everything was excellent. The soup was awesome and there was fresh hot buns to go with it. I will...

This restaurant is Full On ....Lots of people with a huge salad bar which is an attraction. Dimly lit, with high back king like throne chairs do a super job at keeping a busy restaurant somewhat private. The service was hospitable. The food was fresh and cooked well. I had seafood scallops which weren't overcooked....and my guest loved his prime... More

I heard about smugglers from Crown Food Equipment who told me that they installed a special high temp oven to cook steaks at extreme temperature like 1,500F so as to sear the steak well but keep it medium rare. Well we have now been there 3 times in the last 7 weeks and every time its perfect. Yum Yum Yum!
