Prime Rib at the Cannery is the Best. Period.

The Cannery Restaurant is the only 4 Star restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and the reason is obvious: I reserved a table for two online,and immediately got an e mail confirmation.

Our family went to the Cannery for the breakfast brunch. The food was well presented, hot and tasty. The only suggestions we have are 1) increase the size of the coffee cup and pot. For true coffee lovers the pot didn't hold enough for refills 2) don't remove the cutlery from the table while the patrons are up for a... More

Absolutely perfect meal at a beautiful restaurant in old town Niagara On The Lake. Mother's Day brunch was delicious with great variety. The roast lamb was fantastic!

My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel and went for dinner. We had Amy as our server and she was wonderful. We started with the mussels and they were delicious. I had the scallops and risotto (amazing!!) And my husband had the cajun striploin, which he said was the best steak he's ever had. The service was exceptional... More

The Cannery in the Pillar and Post was one of the best meals we've ever had. The Salmon was done perfectly, the service was great and not intrusive at all. The atmosphere and ambiance was great. Our server was very knowledgeable about the local wines and helped in our selection. We highly recommend dinning at The Cannery!!!

We live in Niagara and occasionally enjoy coming into the bar at the Pillar for a bite to eat. One of their signature dishes is the Prime Rib. We have had it many times before and it has been consistently delicious. This last time, however, was disappointing. It looked cooked to our requested medium rare but it was very tough... More

My wife and I were both craving some kind of beef for her birthday dinner while in Niagara-on-the-Lake so the Cannery at the Pillar and Post fit the bill. We shared a steak and prime rib. Both were done medium/rare and came out exactly as expected. The prime rib was our favourite and was super tender and delicious. The grilled... More

We went here for dinner while visiting niagara on the lake. My husband and I got the prime rib which was delicious. The appetizer and dessert left something to be desired. The salad was soaked in dressing and quite soggy. The dessert was dry and tasteless. My husband ordered an old fashioned which was made with soda water and half... More
