They have really improved their salad/soup bar. New, updated additions, larger selection. The salad bar is now well done, I was impressed. They no longer have the happy hour wine price which is unfortunate.

Was at Smugglers about 4 months ago and had the Prime Rib and found it to be not a very nice cut and the flavour was just not there. I complained and nothing was done. No adjustment to the bill. Thought maybe it was an off night so went back last evening and found the same thing. The Prime Rib... More

Decided on bringing a family member out for dinner and was sat in a corner next to a large group of about 20. I remember Smugglers having one of the best salad bars in the city however now it consists of wilted lettuce and few other vegetable items such as sliced carrots, etc. The main courses was not much better....

My last visit pretty much is a repeat of my last review, for 17 or so years, smugglers was our go-to steakhouse, but last 2 visits was a huge disappointment, steak seems to be just grade"a" quality, it is served room temperature, and doesn't have that grilled taste, more like it was just microwaved??!, not saying that it was, cannot...

Was at Smug's again before Christmas and must say I enjoyed the sudle changes. Prime rib is now bone in, but can request a cut with no bone. Side sauces like peppercorn demi are very flavourful. Prime rib roasted and served to perfect temperature...super tender, and likely over cut...Thanks Smug's! The steak soup and salad bar are a nice start!... More

I made a reservation for two at 11:30AM, just before Christmas, and arrived on time. The restaurant was not full yet and we got a seat in front of the fireplace. Of course, we ordered prime rib (what else??) and started with the salad bar and some Caesars. Anyone that is going to eat at Smugglers for the first time,... More

I've been coming here for years, Gee, maybe longer than I care to remember. If you want your "beef" fix and you're in Calgary,, look no further. These guys have been doing it right and putting it up right for as long as I can remember. Had lunch with a friend. Prime rib & soup/salad bar. DO NOT miss out... More
