Description: The Cannery menu will appease every appetite with a balanced selection of steak, seafood, and vegetarian options. Our Executive Chef prepares generous portions that allow local Niagara-on-the-Lake ingredients to shine. Top it all off with a sweet and savoury dessert featuring fresh local fruits or devilishly dark chocolate. Every guest will leave satisfied with great service and an outstanding taste of Ontario cuisine. Every dish can be complemented by a selection from our extensive Wine List, filled with local and international favourites.

Relaxing dinner for 2. Food and service was great. Beautiful atmosphere. We really enjoyed the mussels and prawn cocktail as appetizers. Main course was the the curried scallops and prawns.

We dined here to celebrate an anniversary, and the setting provides a romantic and enjoyable space to enjoy a special occasion. The server seemed a bit overwhelmed, and while the restaurant had respectable turnover, I wouldn't say it was exceptional and she could have been more attentive.

The food was good but not amazing. One of us had the soup of the day (a bit too runny) while the other enjoyed a romaine salad which was nicely enjoyed. One of the "house specialties" is the prime rib, and it was fine. But I wouldn't crave it again. It came with a side of horseradish which had just the right amount of kick, and the sour cream/bacon/green onion options for the baked potato were a nice touch. While I enjoyed the dessert (cheese cake), my spouse thought it tasted frozen, thawed, and store-bought and only ate a bite without finishing it.

My biggest issue was with the price of the wine. Average wine prices on the menu were $80-$100 for a bottle of local wine, much higher than other restaurants in the area. The wine was marked up at least 3-4X, and when a bottle of wine costs more than our two meals, it just seems out-of-whack. I had a friend who had visited here and ordered a glass of white wine. When the bill came, the glass was something like $15, and she refused to pay that much for a measured pour of local wine.

By and large, it was a fine visit but at over $200 for an ordinary meal rather than an exceptional one, it was a bit disappointing. The ambiance is warm and inviting; the service was just okay; the food nice but not great; and the liquor prices overwhelming.

Ashley, our server, was attentive and prompt. The food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the Valentine's Day menu.
