We've eaten here before but this trip was a special treat. Our group was 6 with a baby. The food was great (100% positive) and our waitperson was also great (stood on a chair to take our group photo with my phone). The food was the real treat. The prime rib was wonderful as was the Caesar salad and I... More

It was raining the day that we ate at Cannons and the patio was not open. We had happy hour in the restaurant. I cannot say enough about the beautiful view - it is incredible. Unfortunately, the food was terrible and the service was not much better. I would recommend this restaurant for drinks only.

Food was so yummy, everyone loved their meal - we had coconut shrimp as an appetizer, and our group ordered the grilled scallops in lobster sauce, the swordfish, sea bass and fish and chips. Everything was delicious. The view of the harbour is spectacular and can't be beat! We had a bit of a hard time finding it as it's... More

We all agree that Cannons Seafood Grill has a spectacular view of the Dana Point Harbor. BUT what a scam to offer you jumbo/large shrimp from Mexico for $24.00.....all six of them that could easily be eaten in one bite each!! I almost laughed when they were served to me!! If we hadn't been celebrating someone's anniversary with ten others... More

Cannons has great views of the harbor and is walking distance from the Blue Lantern Inn. The food was good, but not amazing.

I recently dined here and was disappointed in the food. I ordered red snapper, which was the special, and was disappointed. I am pretty sure it was not red snapper. I buy and cook snapper all the time as it is a favorite, but this fish tasted and looked like cod or something else. Not bad, but I would not... More

This is the place to eat when you are in Dana Point. I've been to wedding receptions here also and they do a fantastic job. Ask for a window seat and take in the scenery. Seafood is fresh and prepared well. Service is quick and attentive. Better for couples and adult groups, but even kids will enjoy the place.

Visited Cannons for a corporate dinner. The view from the back porch was fabulous! It was difficult to get everyone inside to start dinner and presentations. Wait staff was good - for having to attend to a group of about 75. Food was very good. But that view - wow!

My husband and I absolutely loved this restaurant!! We made a reservation and we were so pleased when we were seated promptly at an absolutely perfect table. It was right next to the huge windows and the view was just breathtaking. Our waitress was very pleasant and friendly. Everything on the menu sounded appetizing so deciding what to order was... More

This place in it's time was really great. But it has gone down hill lately. The food is sub par and the service is so so. Good thing it has a great view of the harbor
