We visit Calgary every year and it is a ritual to visit The Smugglers every time before we leave. We have never had a bad meal for 30 years of going there. I Highly recommend it to you.

I've been going to Smugglers for over 20 years, it's changed a lot over that time. It went through a bit of a rough period a few years back, but has figured things out again! Now that I have a family of my own this has become my kids (age 10, 13) restaurant of choice for their birthday dinner or... More

Maybe my memories of this place were better than it actually was, but it just wasn't as good as I remeber it being. Service is good. Food is okay. Ambience is very dated. Prices are decent for what you get. Salad bar is nice. I had the Sante Fe soup that was part of the soup bar. I prefer to... More

I have eaten here on several occasions when visiting Calgary. Great steaks and seafood with good soup and very nice salad bar included. On this occasion I had the beef ribs which were excellent. Wide selection on wines available and helpful server.

Our waiter Terry [--] catered to our needy groups every whim without any hesitation. The food is expensive but VERY high quality. I would not recommend getting any sides when they ask because they each cost about $5 extra, and you will already be full from the salad bar. The salad bar is STOCKED and delicious. Very good soups and... More

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
