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

We went on a Monday night and there was only one car in the lot and two tables. Not quite what we expected but overall a great experience. The view is incredible so make sure to ask for a window table or sit outside, unless you are afraid of heights. The food was good, I had the catch and it... More
