    Default Smugglers Inn

    Smuggler's Inn: Macleod Trail SE
    Food: 9/10
    Ambiance: 9.5/10
    Service: 8.5/10
    Price: 9/10

    Was there last night for my B-day and was very pleased! Have heard good things about it and wasn't disappointed at all! Very good service, excellent food and very very nice atmosphere!

    We ordered, Crab stuffed mushroom caps, buffalo chicken spring rolls to start, along with the soup and salad buffet! Main course I had the pepper corn steak mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, my GF had the roast beef also very good and my brother had the ribs which were the BEST i have ever tasted at a resturant only competition is Tony Romas! For the 3 of us with drinks and tip it came to $106! We got desert for free but they had some ones that sounded really good for like 4-5 bux!

    Overall, excellent experience, definetly a go-again and I know in a few weeks my family and my GF's family are going for brunch there which my mom says is really really good, and shes a picky eater so Im lloking foward to that! I'll post my review for that when I go!

    I think Smuggler's is one of the best steak places in Calgary. The prime rib steak is topped with garlic butter! mmmmm...

    man the keg sucks bad. the food isn't even good. can't figure out why people go there. you can have a better steak at earls
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    I don't know why people like this place, I've never had good service, food quality, and they are very expensive taking all things into consideration. I've been there on more then a couple of occasions and have never left feeling that it was worth the money.
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    All I have to say is "sucks to be you".

    Your obviously that one person out of a thousand that has not liked it, they have been comended over and over for their quality.


    Smugglers in is on my top 3 for favorite places to go in and around town.

    and yeah, Comparing the Keg to Smugglers, thats like comparing Hyundai Accent to a Bently Arnage.

    I don't like Smuggler's that much cuz it's run by high school kids. Also the last few times I've gone the food wasn't that great. Service is definitely not what their famous for... but better than Caesar's.

    Wow, not trying to be a dick or anything, but there must be some vibe you give off or something. I've been there probably 50+ times, lunch, brunch, dinner etc. Always awesome food, always great service, I find their prices very reasonable for the quality and size.

    I agree w/ 5.9
    The place is too over rated
    w/ bland bland food
    Service wasn't too great either.
    I've gone about 4 times to try different things
    the salad bar was even boring, boring soups.
    I'd say Mother Tuckers is a LITTLE bit better
    but for steaks, Hys... MmmMMM
    I even prefer Joeys/Moxies/Earls steaks to Smuggler steaks.
    Food
    3/5
    Service 3/5
    Ambience 3/5

    About 5 years ago it was great, never had a problem with it, really good food and service, but it seems to have gone downhill since then. I wouldn't recommend it.
