Came here to celebrate a birthday. We had a nice table that was quite private and intimate, perfect for us to enjoy the special of surf and turf which was perfectly cooked. They also make a great prime rib. Service was very good.

Stopped in here for a drink and a quick bite -- it was late afternoon and we were starving. Pete the bartender hooked us right up, was super friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

The dinner and service were both excellent! We highly recommend the prime rib. The service was elegant without being pretentious in any way.

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.
