We went to Smugglers' Inn a couple of months ago and we could not believe how relaxing and comfortable the Club was. It was a mixture of mid to older adults that seemed to truly be enjoying two stepping to mind pleasing music by DJ

We went in and were the only customers on a Friday night. There was only one waitress, but she was friendly and helpful all night long. The salad bar was a little disappointing, but the food we ordered was great. We had swordfish, prime rib, and blackened chicken and they all tasted wonderful. We also had white champagne cake for dessert that was delicious. We learned from the waitress they are currently remodeling (evident by a few paint spots around), that before the casinos came in they were much more busy, and she also explained the late night Latino theme bar/dancing they offer.
Our food was very good, and despite such slow business everything was very fresh except the lettuce, the prices are reasonable (they dropped them last year according to the waitress), and the atmosphere is nice. It's only sad that they don't get MORE business! (However, we kept joking that it felt like we rented the place out for free!)
I recommend it, absolutely.

Pros: food and atmosphere

Cons: salad bar

This place used to be a top favorite for me. I loved the prime rib and it had a salad bar too. The waitresses were really nice. They have coupons so it didn't cost alot. The last few times have really let me down. The place needs a remodel and the people just aren't nice anymore. About two weeks ago on a Sunday I went there. The waitress kept telling the other people they aren't usually open on Sundays, yet the coupons states Sunday hours. She was the only waitress and got our order wrong, after checking twice as though she forgot. The veggies in the bar were not good quality and the prime rib was 50% fat. The catsup was watered down and tasted nasty. She said I could keep the coupon and reuse it. I said we don't come here that often and I wanted to say we won't be back. This is sad because I loved this place and when I had a little extra money I would treat myself and now that dream is gone. Now I will go to some big corporation owned restaurant instead of supporting our local businesses.

Pros: This place is more like a bar now than a nice restuarant.

Cons: Money gone and I have an aftertaste

My favorite thing about Smugglers is there great salad bar with fresh options for your salad plate. They also have a small bar attached to have cocktails while you wait for your table. The food is good and you'll have plenty to take home.

My wife and I ate here at the end of January, 2008. The one waitress on duty did a good job and was fun to talk with. The salad bar was limited but very fresh and clean. My prime rib was bigger than the 16 oz I ordered - and good. My wife's seafood pasta was spicy (like the waitress said) but very good. The atmosphere is a little different. Kind of like you went back in time. The restaurant hasn't changed since I took my prom date there 25 years ago. We'll go back.

my fiance's parents tried to have their 35th anniversary here and it was a disaster. everything that could've gone wrong did. food was bad (cold), late. service was dispicable.

it used to be their favorite and special ocassion restaurant, but they have not been back ever since.

we've tried it a couple times before this incident and it wasn't that great either.
