We had friends from Scotland visiting Niagara Falls. After a couple days they were looking for something less hectic to meet for lunch. Having never been to Niagara-on-the-Lake I trusted some reviews and reserved at the Cannery Restaurant. Our friends were quite late and there was a mix-up with our reservations...imagine two parties of 7 reserved at the same time!... More

Great for breakfast...lots of variety. Love the coffee and omelettes. We don't go for dinner because we find it too pricey for what we'd like to pay.

This is a normal dining experience - not the semi-high end foodie delight that it might seem to be. I was not impressed. The wine list is okay, but mainly local wines which are, in my opinion, greatly overpriced! I can buy a bottle of Brunello di Montalcino for the same cost of my half bottle of average wine that...

Well worth a visit. The decor was simply lovely. Sorry to say the service was about average, maybe even a bit less... the prime rib was to die for..

We've stayed at the Pillar & Post many, many times over the last 25 years, but we haven't been back in over 5 years. We're staying now to celebrate the Mrs' birthday. First night in we dined at the Cannery. We knew it was good, but forgot that's it's really good! It's a cool old building vibe, and you will... More

The food was tremendous. I had the roast beef, my husband had the lamb. Both meals were generous portions, and delicious. My roast beef was soooo tender, with perfectly baked potato, and a scrumptious Yorkshire pudding. I started off with a lovely Caesar salad, and he had a unique bruschetta.(which he enjoyed!) Pricey location, good selection of wine/beers etc. Our... More

We stayed at the Pillar and Post so we ate here once for dinner and 3 mornings for breakfast. I am not a fan of buffets and was quite curtly advised on my 1st morning there that ithe menu had the same food as the buffet. Basically, I don't want to serve you, get it yourself. The buffet was good... More
