Good meal with a great view.

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.

When I was there last time there are a wedding on the patio area, was so beautiful. I may choose here to get... More

My son had is wedding ceremony at Cannons and what a great experience. Lisa and the staff were exceptional in covering every detail The views of the ocean are spectacular and the price is reasonable for the experience and service that you get. The food is also really good.

Breaking news from Dana Point: Ocean- view, marina-view, multi-level cliff top restaurant has no bar. I always thought the bar was the most profitable part of any restaurant, but these folks don't agree with that maxim. Don't get me wrong- they sell alcohol, but you have to be seated at a dinner table to get it. Food was solid, try... More

Went with a group of friends for happy hour..Menu selection was good. Drinks were ok. Service by waiter was outstanding. View of Dana Point harbor with activities and boats made the day. Would definitely return again

View & food: Good seafood & steaks. Looks over the harbor with 2 levels as well as some outdoor seating. Try the seafood skewers Steaks were good as well. Good service, staff seemed to be mostly younger ocal residents.

The best Happy Hour in Dana Point! A very generous pour with a good price and really good appetizers. The view of the Harbor is just the best ever. The staff is very friendly. My favorite place for Happy Hour...

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
