Great view, great food and great service. First off, the views from Cannon's cannot be beaten! The tables are placed so that everyone enjoys a stupendous vista of the coast and harbor. We were there on a full moon and watched the moon rise over the mountains to the east. What a treat! The food is top notch - well... More

A place where it all comes together to make it a special experience . I strongly recommend Cannons calamari and the new sangria drink. The service is excellent . This restaurant is a must !

The best thing about Cannons is the wonderful view of the harbor. The food is quite good, depending on what you order. The last time I was there, the service was somewhat lacking, but overall I like this restaurant. They also have a good "Happy Hour".

If it wasn't for the good view, it would have received a 1. We went on Saturday, Feb 15th for a birthday dinner. The decor of Cannons has not changed in years and it shows. Our service was non existent and we had to ask other servers for water and bread. The candle in the middle of the table was... More

First, the views here are awesome. Absolutely gorgeous overlooking the bay & marina & hills. Food is a great value. The crab beignets are exceptional and you get approximately 12 of them! I had the scallops with pasta which was excellent and my husband had the seafood medley which was HUGE! We brought home enough food for 2 more meals.... More

Had a wonderful dinner on New Years Eve. We were seated on the top floor that is usually used for parties. There were 6 of us and we had everything from cioppino to swordfish. Everything was great. We also had an artichoke for a starter that was grilled and delicious. The view is spectacular and we will be back!

Until now I hadn't had a reason to eat here but we were flush with money and time so we gave it a try . The lack of valet parking should have been a sign but we walked into the tired dingy place anyway . My wife walked under the fresh local lobster sign and was exited to have some... More

We dined on New Year's Eve. Our reservation was at 5:00 p.m. and we were quickly seated upon our arrival at a table next to the window with a view of Dana Point Harbor as requested. Emma our server was very friendly and knowledgable and never rushed us during our meal. We started with a grilled artichoke that was tender... More

I'm really not fussy about restaurants but we were not happy after our visit to Cannons seafood grill. The place is not super-expensive but it's not a fastfood joint either so the price should be seen in the quality of service and plates. Anyway, we were here on the night of the Dana Point harbour's christmas parade. Got a table... More

High on the headlands overlooking Dana Point Harbor, Cannon's is a Dana Point landmark. They also happen to offer a very good happy hour to go along with the good view. Several basic wines and beers are offered at reasonable happy hour prices, along with an ample menu that is more substantial than just snacks. We had mushrooms, and chicken... More
