My Wife and I visited Smugglers for the first time with my Mother in law for dinner. First, the place is VERY dark and a bit on the dangerous side as far as getting around. I actually had to use a light from my cell phone to help us read the menus. I had previously read in a few reviews about the lighting but didn't realize how much of an issue this was.
After we ordered our food we went to the salad and soup bar, which is part of the meal. The choices are decent but again it is VERY dark and difficult to see in this area. The items are labeled with descriptions hand written with markers on the glass, which honestly is ridiculous. The salad bar was good. As for the soup bar. There are 3 kinds of soups to pick from, but the bowls are very small. The spoons are big soup spoons so the combination of a very small bowl and a large soup spoon is awkward. It literally takes 3 or 4 bowls to get a regular bowl of soup down.
Next, our main courses. The Wife ordered a Burger and said it was terrible. The bun was rock hard to the point that she removed the bun and ate the inside of the burger without a bun. My Mother in law ordered Salmon which is cooked on a cedar plank. She was asked if she wanted some brown sugar on it and saying yes was a big mistake. The salmon had a incredible amount of brown sugar on it. It was sad seeing her take her table napkin and try to rub the sugar off. Definitely killed this dish with the
large amount of brown sugar. I ordered a cut of prime rib which was pretty decent. I asked for a bigger knife and they said they only had the one type which was the smallest cutting knife I have ever seen. Just barely a bit bigger than a pairing knife. So, I know that I have listed a pretty good list of issues to this point but this next issue is in my opinion is crap. The amount of mashed potatoes that were on my plate was disgustingly scarce. My meal was $41 and Smugglers you should be ashamed for the amount of mashed potatoes that you gave me with this dish!
Too dark and the food is not that good. The price we paid to eat here was , $125.
Not worth the meal that we got. We will not be returning to this restaurant again.
