The Canalside is one of our favorite places to eat. Great food, great atmosphere and the owners are very accommodating. You can actually rent rooms about the restaurant that view the Canal and the ships as they pass through Port Colborne.

I have been there many times and the food is great. The prices are great and the quality is there. We have always had great service with the mature server as she is attentive and professional. One bad experience with a younger server.

Not only is the food exceptionally good, the view is amazing. If you happen to be on the outdoor patio in summer and a ship goes through the canal, it is very special.
