Cannons Seafood Grill
Best View!Cannons has undoubtedly the best view in all of the area. We have been coming here for years and the food is consistently very good. Service is also quite good. Another way to go is the great bar menu as well. We always enjoy Cannons!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a fan of Cannon's andI am a fan of Cannon's and have been coming back for many years. I will say that the view used to overshadow the quality of the food. But the chefs have definitely kicked it up several notches. In fact their fish entrees are rivaling some of the higher end restaurants. This last visit saw an upgrade in the side veg dish both in appearance, texture and flavor.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPrice shockWe were never told the price of the special that night which was surf and turf. Price shock.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food in South Orange CountyThe filet Oscar was melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. My wife had the Chilean Seabass and was equally impressed. The view of the harbor is awe inspiring. Great location for a special occasion or just a great meal with great ambiance.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ambiance & FoodA small group of us needed a nice place to treat our soon to be retired boss for dinner. I had always wanted to try Cannons so gave it a whirl. With an excellent table by the window our waitress tended to us promptly with drink orders. We all had great tasty food. Wine selection seemed amble although I didn't scrutinize the choices. I had the scallops with lobster reduction sauce. They were cooked perfectly. Once we had ordered food, the salads came our promptly and the entrees were right on time. With the view and the food, it definitely delivered the special we were looking to for that evening.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view in town.My husband and I celebrated our 17th anniversary here..By far the best view in Dana Point, excellent service and delicious food..

The harbor view is World Class.
Food was good, not great, good. The service was good.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCannons made a direct hit!It's a great place for location, food, service and views. Just about everywhere in the restaurant has a view of the Ocean from Dana Point Harbor out to the Pacific. The food I had was unbelievable! I really enjoyed the Sea Bass, the way it was grilled was perfect...the flavor was perfect; it was moist yet not under cooked.
The location is excellent for folks living in So Orange County, it's nice to be able to find a decent restaurant...anywhere in this area that's not super-pricey.
Parking is adequate for the number of seats in the building...so you won't be looking for a spot for 30 minutes like you would in Laguna Beach (nor will you end up walking another 30).
I would love to see better beer choices (an IPA or two would be ni3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthe Manager gave us the requestedthe Manager gave us the requested view table; arriving prior to sunset gave a wonderful chance to enjoy our wine as the sun fell below the ocean. Our waitress was understanding and work with us knowing the group was all out of state "East Coast" folks that enjoyed seeing a West Coast sunset.
Food was very good from Steak to seafood!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food & Incredible View!We had a wonderful, relaxing, quiet dinner with a spectacular view. (Try to get a window table!!!) Our waitress was wonderful and answered all of our questions about the food and the wine. We were delighted to have a delicious dinner without the usual annoying loud noise from the bar or other tables. My coconut shrimp were fabulous! My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass and he raved about it. He also had the yummy clam chowder. The incredible "mud pie," for dessert, helped us celebrate the last night of our vacation.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
