Great Ocean View from Top of the Hill

We normally go on Saturday for a late launch. Food is good but the view is priceless. Order a drink and sandwich you would sit there till the very last bite of dessert.

I had an unexpected birthday dinner with friends. I called for a reservation for a party of 7 and I am surprised that the one who answered was the most unenthusiastic lady I ever heard. When we arrived I think he was the manager/supervisor who lead us to the table and still no smile or warm welcome. Not even offering... More

This place has been there forever, a classic seafood and steak establishment. Food was okay - not bad by any means, but nothing to write home about….. The view is spectacular and there's a lovely outdoor deck, making it a solid choice for coast side dining.

Outstanding view! Food was very good and service was excellent. Crab beignets were great, and mud pie was a tasty dessert.

The view alone was worth the trip but food was tasty and service was excellent. House cabernet was a good choice with nice finish/body. The calamari was prepared to perfection and the spicy chili dipping sauce was yummy. The prime rib was a little done despite the medium rare request. Hubby had the scallops with pasta -- it was good... More

Cannons has perhaps the best view in Orange County, overlooking Dana Point harbor. The food is consistently good and the service equally consistent and good. Whether it's dinner or drinks on the outdoor deck Cannon's has something for everyone. Highly recommend it.

The view here is worth the trip, perched high above Dana Point Harbor. What fun watching the activity below while the sun sets, The food was somewhat pricey but was really well prepared. I rarely get to eat such perfectly cooked fresh mahi mahi, while my husband had excellent salmon. It was a perfect evening to cap off our weekend... More

We love eating here! The servers are wonderful, friendly & helpful with suggestions. The prices are very reasonable. The prime rib melts in your mouth. The seafood is always delicious. But the best reason we take all our out-of-town company to Cannon's is the view! We make our reservations for about an hour before sunset so we can watch the... More

This restaurant has a stunning view perched on the cliffs above Dana Point Harbor. The service was very good, but I wish the food was as spectacular as the view. You're probably better off just having cocktails and appetizers.
