We dined in the Cannery four times during our visit; 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts. Each meal was delicious, creative, cooked to perfection. The waitstaff was polite and efficient. The atmosphere was quiet, romantic, and comfortable.

Excellent food, our friends said it was the best short ribs they have ever had. Elissa was a fantastic server, attentive to all 10 of our needs. Colleen was a gracious host and sommelier. Highly recommend.

If I could give less than one star I would. This was an anniversary dinner and our first time here, the service was abysmal. It took an HOUR to get a glass of wine (with lipstick on the glass). Food was dropped with no description,...More

Located in the Pillar + Post so a bit of a walk if you are staying in central areas of NOTL. The decor is classic steakhouse which makes sense as the majority of the menu is steak/roast beef although there are other options, we had...More

The Cannery menu will appease every appetite with a balanced selection of steak, seafood, and vegetarian options. Our Executive Chef prepares generous portions that allow local Niagara-on-the-Lake ingredients to shine. Top it all off with a sweet and savoury dessert featuring fresh local fruits or devilishly dark chocolate. Every guest will leave satisfied with great service and an outstanding taste of Ontario cuisine. Every dish can be complemented by a selection from our extensive Wine List, filled with local and international favourites.
