Great View and Great Food, too!

Cannons has become our favorite restaurant in Dana Point. The service, food quality, and view can not be beat in Dana Point!

Went there for a business dinner. Beautiful view of Dana Point Harbor and they had a holiday boat parade going on which had boats decorated in lights cruising through the harbor. Service was very good, friendly and made sure we were enjoying the experience. Had the Salmon which was good but nothing special. Desserts like the cheesecake and German Chocolate... More

before going to the harbor for Illuminocean, my girlfriend a I stopped here for appetizers. From this restaurant, you can look down and see the Harbor in its entirety. Next time, we will make reservations and have dinner. Patio dining is also available.

Cannons is located overlooking the Cliffs of Dana Point harbour, and the views alone are worth a visit, especially at sundown. The service and menu choices were first rate and the food itself was very good. This is the kind of restaurant that deserves a return visit.

We had a very large business dinner on the patio. There were drinks and appetizers served prior to us sitting down for dinner. I thought the space was very nice. The food was fine. The service was good.

Cannons has a great view of Dana Point Harbor as well as great service and food! We enjoyed this location so much we had our wedding reception here and were not disappointed by the service, food or venue.

We stopped in on Saturday evening to enjoy the view. We have been to the Chart House that sits next door to Cannons. The Chart House has the same view, but we thought the food was less than impressive...so we tried Cannons. What a great meal! The food is WAY better here than the Chart House. We had appetizers (the... More

We had great service, and the food was exceptional! Appetizers, salads, dinner all great! The beefstake tomatoes and onion balsamic appetizer was a very original combination and we both loved it!

The food is just as good as the view. There's a lovely patio to enjoy the weather and the view, or a window table is nice, too. Our server was very helpful with suggestions for our meal.

A view all must see, accompanied by very good food and wine. We go here about once a month- just cause! But, we definitely go here when we have visitors to South Orange County. We have several relatives and friends who request we return to Cannons while they are here. Their service is excellent and there is not a bad... More
