excellent view good service but you pay for it and should

Been here several times with family, They really do a nice job, But for a less formal and equally good food there are places on the pier that are casual.

Amazing view, excellent food, good service. Reservation is easy and highly recommended if you want a table by the window with a view of the harbor!

Go to Cannons if you want the best fresh seafood, excellent drinks and a great happy hour paired with one of the best views in the Laguna/Dana Point area. Cannons is it. It is family owned and you cannot go back enough. You can go for a romantic dinner, or bring the family.

I had lunch there for a post wedding function, we sat outside and thankfully we also had a flawless sunny day that brought out the spectacular view of the harbor. The food was amazing, excellent quality seafood and variety, perfectly cooked veges and service was just great. I did sneak in to the main restaurant to check out the menu... More

As a 46 year resident of Dana Point, Cannon's has become our all-time favorite restaurant. There is no need to go to any other. This is our home away from home. With an unbelievably great staff, combined with truly cuisine meals followed by an impeccable view, this is it as good as it gets in Dana Point. There is no... More

Cannon's has seen its better days. The decor is old. The food is below par. Had to send scallop potatoes back to be heated. Still came back cold. Rice was not hot either. Clam chowder was too thick. Food was expensive for what we got. Server should have brought manager over after second complaint re potatoes. To say the least,... More

Cannon's is a great dining experience in a lovely restaurant up on the cliffs overlooking Dana Point Harbor. It is however pricey. We loved sitting at our window table early enough to see the view in daylight and then watch the sun set over the harbor. Breathtaking! There is valet parking outside in a parking lot, but we parked on... More

Next door to the Blue Lantern Inn where we were staying, it was very convenient for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.

We went to Cannons as it is easily accessable from the Blue Lantern Inn. The reviews were mixed, but we decided to give it a try. Out of our 4 dinners in Dana Point, this was the worse. The service was okay. We didn't have to wait too long, and our server was friendly. I ordered the Cioppino and my... More

Rented the upper floor for a bridal shower. It was amazing, the full wall view is the best part, but the food was good too and the staff was very accommodating.
