About Cannery Restaurant
Capture a magical moment of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s past as you dine in one of its most historic buildings. The four-diamond Cannery Restaurant of today is reminiscent of its former life as a canning factory in the 1800s, where Niagara peaches and tomatoes were canned until 1957. Its agricultural past has been lovingly retained in its décor of rough hewn wooden beams, rich red brick walls and a hearth at the heart of the restaurant. Chef Mark Longster continues to serve up the best of the region in his menus which feature the freshest local produce and fine wines. Charming and casual Cannery Restaurant is the place to find all your favorites, from succulent steaks to catch of the day to a fabulous Sunday brunch. Chef Longster's food is prepared and presented perfectly, for your ultimate dining experience.

Cannery Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Our party of six enjoyed a great New Year’s Eve dinner and party afterwards. The food was delicious and the pacing was perfect. Our server Sarah was excellent and we felt very well taken care of by her and other staff. The decor was festive and the party favours were fun.
I would happily recommend the Cannery.
We were there for New Year's Eve and enjoyed the set menu tremendously although, I might have said the desserts (apart from the deconstructed cherry cheesecake, the other desserts were a little lacking. Our server was tremendous and helped to make it a memorable evening!
In the heart of Niagara-On-The-Lake, one of our favorite places on earth, is a first class steak house inside the Pillar and Post lodge, one of the Vintage Hotels in this region. The food was as good as any steak house I have visited, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was wonderful. It was a very cold December night, but the roaring fire and warm service took the chill out of the air and made a memorable dining experience for my wife and I.
My wife had the surf and turf- a delicious lobster tail and beef terderloin. Even though she like the beef medium well, it was still very tender and the sweet wine sauce that accompained the beef was perfect. I had the prime rib - I rarely eat this dish because it is often served below expectations. Not here at the Cannery. It was fabulous. It was juicy and tender, served medium rare, and plentiful. It wasn’t ridiculously thick, but it was a generous serving none the less.
We enjoyed the restaurant immensely. A good steak house is expensive, and this one was no exception. But it was priced competitively with other similar restaurants, and the combination of food, service, and atmosphere justifies my high rating for value.
For the second year in a row we went to the Pillar & Post for our Christmas Eve dinner with friends. It's so beautifully decorated and the food is always fabulous. It was nice to have the choice of the regular or Christmas Day menu. A perfect spot for a special meal out.
Seating was on time. Our waiter was excellent and attended to our needs without any prompting from us. Food was excellent ( we had the prime rib) we were seated next to the fireplace...an excellent location. Never felt as though we were hurried through our meal. An excellent evening spent with a friend celebrating the holiday season.
My wife and I have dined at The Cannery at least 5 times over the years. We travel from out of town to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake and we usually end up at The Cannery. We’ve never been disappointed. At least twice Lisa was our server. She’s delightful. Pleasant, fun and professional. The food is amazing. The kitchen never hesitates to accommodate with special requests. The ambiance is romantic. Perfect for a quiet dinner for two. We’ll keep going back!
A great time of year to go The Cannery. All decked out for the season - wonderful atmosphere for a birthday celebration. The service was excellent, attentive but not too much so. The Prime Rib was amazing. The topper was the dessert arriving with a Happy Birthday written on the plate in chocolate. Looking forward to our next visit.
