Amazing !!

Came here with my family for a special occasion dinner. I must say I was blown away by how good the food was. The salad, the steak, and especially the dessert. This place does not disappoint, not to mention a good server and good atmosphere. Would go again but for special occasions.

We are so glad we ventured out of the Niagara Falls area to Niagara-on-the Lake. We chose the Cannery Restaurant, located in the beautiful Pillar and Post Inn. The picture on their website does not do it justice - they call it a "wine and barrel" decor, just perfect for enjoying a nice relaxing dinner. For apps, we enjoyed the... More

Dining room nicely appointed but not pretentious, Menu is varied with great use of local fresh ingredients in many of the dishes, The crab cakes, as a starter, are very well done, As an entre, the prime rib was outstanding, Would have preferred some gravy drizzled on the Yorkshire pudding but there was enough on the plate to suffice, The...

I ordered the prime rib and it was excellent. Perhaps a bit over salted but very tasty. My companions ordered a scallop dish and said it was okay. So the food ranged from okay to excellent. Service was great and atmosphere was very nice. I would return.

We chose this place because they advertised outstanding prime rib and my husband plus a friend would agree. This is a large restaurant with excellent service. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Would recommend this place.

Being part of the same ownership, we took (free) the short shuttle ride to the Cannery at the Pillar and Post. It is what one would expect from the name- a converted 19th Century canning factory which has been very cleverly converted into a stylish and characterful restaurant. The service was very good and the menu very comprehensive with a... More

We ate in the Cannery everyday for breakfast. The options were hot and cold buffet and / or freshly prepared waffles or omelettes. The Restaurant itself looks great as it is part of the old Cannery. We had different waitress most days and they were all great and asked us about our plans for the day and gave tips and... More

Was staying in town at a rental property just around the corner from this restaurant, which was recommended by a local who grew up in town. Unfortunately, we were only able to fit in breakfast the day we left. The food was all very, very good. The choice was extensive, including an omelette station that I did not take advantage... More
