“Excellent birthday dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We spent a day in Niagra and celebrated the 74th birthday of my mother in an exceptional place!!
The cornish hen and especially the goat cheese risitto are extraordinary!! Try some of the deserts!!

“Excellent Service and Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

I love this restaurant and we often choose this when in Niagara on the Lake because the menu is very nice, but a little more mainstream than some of the other restaurants, so when you have picky eaters in your party, you can be sure to please everyone here. This was a terrific place for a Mother's Day dinner and the wine list if fabulous. In fact, two of the best new wines I have found in Niagara were a result of a recommendation by the wait staff at the restaurant.

“Great atmosphere, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

The Cannery restaurant is in the lovely Pillar and Post hotel. The dining room is quite beautiful with lots of wooden beams and brick work. The food is absolutely delicious and beautifully served by a friendly waitress. I must admit that the prices are on the high side, but the experience is really very nice while in Niagra on the lake. The signature beef dishes are a must to try and are outstanding. Do explore the rest of the hotel...there is a really beautiful bar with a fireplace and leather chairs. Very friendly staff!

“Five star food, five star service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We just wanted to say we had the most enjoyable meal tonight. Out server Katelyn was one of the best servers we have had in a while. Her style of service was just what we were looking for.
The food was excellent. We had the crab cakes and romaine salad for appetizers followed by prime rib and tenderloin as our main courses. Everything was cooked to perfection.
It's our first night in Niagara on the lake and if the rest of our meals and servers are like this, we will certainly be enjoying ourselves.
