We were staying at The Blue Lantern Inn next door and so asked them to reserve us a table here. We started with a drink on the deck overlooking the water and then went inside to eat. The service, view and food were all fantastic. The calamari starter was more than enough for 2 and very well seasoned. My steak... More

We came in to scout the place out for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner, and got to sit out on the deck for drinks and apps. The view of the entire harbor is absolutely amazing. The food was good too, but there is nothing like that stunning harbor view from the top of the bluff.

My wife and i ordered an appetizer, a salad and a Mahi mahi plate. All of the dishes were very average. We would not go back again. The views from the hotel were amazing though.

We met my parents for an early dinner and at first was disappointed that: 1. They used to open at 4:30 on Saturday, now open at 5pm (not bad for summer but in the winter it will already be dark and this is a great place to watch the sun set). My dad is disabled and had to wait for... More

We had happy hour and sunset dinner at the Cannon with friends who visited us in Dana Point. Good drink selection at good prices. Clam Chowder is amazingly creamy with a hint of spice. Service was great and views are amazing. Great place for a lazy end to a day or start to a fun evening.

Simply stated...we got seated and never saw a server after that. Had to ask for someone and attempted to ask about the prime rib and they said they were completely out. Wow! They were more interested in taking care of a large party than anything else. For a high-scale restaurant, you would like to think you would be taken care... More

The service was so-so, for such a nice location high on a hill overlooking the water. It felt as though the servers were not empowered to take care of the guests. The entrees while not outstanding, were solid and well prepared . In the case of Cannons, the view( and Name) can sometimes suck you in. The food was good,... More

Cannons is reputed as having the best view in the area, and it doesn't disappoint. We really enjoyed watching the boats sail in and out of the Dana Point Harbor below us. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Our waitress made us feel right at home. We were trying to make a decision between two red wines, so she... More
