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

Derek was a perfect server my first visit. Seated by the fireplace was perfect, as I was dining on my own. Water, bread and butter were delivered promptly. Superb service. Brianna was my second night's server. Not as experienced as Derek, but also subtle and attentive. The room is divided into different areas - fireplace room, and two larger open... More

Usual buffet style, fresh fruit and choice of cereals, hot food, selection of egg styles. Not too many breads and pastries on our visit, although I hear it is usually more.

We did not know much about this restaurant except for the fact that it was attached to the Pillar and Post that we were staying at. The entire facility used to be a cannery (hence the name) but has been quite nicely transformed into warm and inviting atmosphere maintaining much of the old brickwork and wooden beams but also adding...

we were staying at Pillar & Post and had dinner included with our package. I started with the crab cakes, which were perfectly cooked and seasoned. They were golden and crispy on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside, served with a really nice sauce. I had the loaded beef tenderloin as my main dish, served medium rare... More

My husband and I enjoyed two meals at this restaurant located in the Pillar and Post Vintage hotel during our stay there. Both evenings we were delighted to have Derek as our server. He was very professional, friendly, informative about each meal option, the wine selection and offered excellent suggestions. The meals were each delicious. Their specialty is prime rib,... More
