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 quite tucked away into a cliff.

The restaurant is one big room and we had big groups around us so it was quite noisy and difficult to hear the discussion at our own table.

Also, although the food was great, i'm not sure it was worth the pretty hefty price tag.

It would be nice to see them add some sort of local catch to their menu, being right on the harbour we had expected some local, fresh fish.

Seems to be a popular wedding spot and I can see why. It would be a breathtaking location.

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 I probably would have said something.
Also their ladies room could use a new toilet seat that was losing its paint from all the wear and tear. That can't be too expensive to replace?!!

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 have ordered it if I had known. How could the chef not know? The service was fine, the best thing about Cannons is the view. I would go there again for drinks but not for dinner.
