Great food

The food at cannery is wonderful. I had the sea scallops and my husband had the steak and they were both cooked to perfection.

The service was just excellent in every way. But the menu was too heavy for July 1st. There was nothing seasonal to choose just heavy mashed potatoes, huge prime rib, popovers disguised as Yorkshire pudding, thick tomato sauce on a shellfish pasta, etc. Desserts uninspired & heavy too. Way overpriced. I would have rather gone to the local treat, Backhouse... More

Large restaurant with enjoyable atmosphere. Good service and efficient. Food was very good, served hot, tasty and good portions. Salmon was excellent and Pork Tenderloin was perfectly done. No complaints about this restaurant. Although a bit pricey, it was a good choice all around.

My daughter gave me a trip to Niagara on the Lake as a gift for Mother's Day. I had never been there before and asked a friend who had been,for a restaurant recommendation. She suggested the Canner in the Pillar and Post . The atmosphere is relaxed elegance and the food is excellent. We elected to share an appetizer and... More

Nice food and good service in a very nice setting. It's a fairly long walk from the main (small) downtown area - we were staying at the Prince of Wales - especially if it's hot, so you might want to take a taxi if you don't have your own car.

Coming in to the restaurant for a later serving we were hoping for a quiet, romantic meal. Our young, dissinterested hostess took us to a table in the center of the room where there were some boisterous (and drunk) people surrounding us. I asked her for a quieter location and she said that it was the only table available. Clearly... More

This restaurant is very worth visiting. The scenery is perfect, integrated in an old cannery. Service very friendly, Wonderful food and a well-stocked wine list, with a lot of the wonderful Niagara wines.

The ambiance was wonderful, and enticing. We were excited to try this restaurant at the beautiful and renowned Pillar and Post. Unfortunately, from arrival our enthusiasm diminished. The location is stunning; the room beautiful and richly appointed. Hostess was distracted by conversations with other staff, and ignored us. Recommendation to management: Acknowledge your waiting guests, even if it is with... More
