“Great location, but very average food.”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

This restaurant has a superb view but very mediocre food and the service isn't very good. I have been there multiple times. I would say it is worth going for a drink and sitting outside and enjoying the view when the weather is nice. But I would definitely go elsewhere for dinner. The ambiance inside leaves as much to be desired as the food and the service, and the place is not particularly clean.

“View is unmatched and spectacular; food just so-so”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Well, I can recommend going to Cannon's for happy hour as you still get the view and the smaller appetizer portions on the HH menu are a good value. Now, if you stay over for dinner, the steaks and prime rib are just so-so. Accompaniments are tired...baked potato with trimmings on the side...vegetable medley. Ugh! Bread basket that is not refreshed; stingy on the butter. I just rated the food as good; not memorable. But the view is awesome. Like I suggested, just come for Happy Hour.

“Go for the view”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

If you are not staying in the Harbor area then go for the view. The food and staff are just average. Wait staff are inexperienced but well intentioned - could use some training. Food is okay but nothing to match the view. Fish was fresh and simply prepared. Came away with the impression that they prefer to handle "events" rather than "diners".

“Food matched the View.....”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

unmatched view of Dana Point and beyond. The Bonus: the food is terrific and actually reasonable for the product and ambiance they deliver. Lobster Bisque isn't Federal Jack's in Kennebunkport (but it ain't 22 bucks either) and it's light on lobster but it's terrific on flavor and although their signature lobster bruschetta is $12.50, go ahead and spoil yourself! The Snapper, with a exceptional mango sauce is a can't miss as well.
