Steakhouse
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.

The Cannery Restaurant indoor dining is open on Friday July 24th. Please note that outdoor seating is not guaranteed.

Lunch reservations will be served in Vintages Lounge only

Great food! A bit pricey. We were booked for the patio for dinner which I confirmed with the hostess but we were placed inside.

We came to celebrate the sale of my parents Toronto house and their future purchase in NOTL. Exciting day. The server seemed on top of it, at first - but when it came down to it many things were missed - forgot my daughters milk, no butter with the baked potatoes, took a while for drinks, our entree was brought before the appetizer had been taken off the table, a few other issues as well. Small things, yes, first world problems, yes, but for $450, the service could have been much better.

The meal was the best I've ever eaten! Melt in your mouth food, service was fantastic although the waitress talked a little too much for my liking.

We had dinner there on August 5 & it was excellent. Breakfast the next day was great and they obliged with a request to change one item. From a Covid perspective I felt very comfortable. All precautions were made.

Dinner was exceptional. Prime rib is the best prime rib we’ve ever eaten. Seasoned and cooked to perfection. Service was excellent. Exactly what we needed to help with our Covid blues!

The food was okay. Given the reviews and price point I was expecting substantially better. Could be they’re struggling with the reduced volume from COVID. Maybe it’s usually much better when they’re in full swing so I’d give them another try but it’s very expensive for basic food.

The meal was good. The service was good but we found they had run out of things- craft beer, one of the entree options. I wanted a cappuccino after dinner and the machine wasn’t working.
We would have like to see more options on the dinner menu - perhaps a pasta meal.

Meal was good but overpriced for what we ordered. Blackened strip loin was not blackened. Server said it had a kick but it was actually bland. It was a good cut of meat though and very tender. Romaine salad was a boring Caesar. Their greens salad was really good. No bread was served which we found odd. Overall very nice but nothing spectacular.

The food was flavourful and expertly prepared. Our waiter was impeccable. After a day of winery tours and a visit to the historic Niagara-on-the-Lake area, a dinner here is the best way to end a great day.

Food was wonderful for my meat eating friends! The vegetarian option was not good. I sent it back and had mash and root vegetables instead. Perhaps a butternut ravioli or other pasta dish could be on your menu? Otherwise a wonderful experience!

The restaurant decor is old, dark and very dated. Certainly needs a good refresh. The Prime Rib and my husband’s steak were both good. However the vegetables were very over cooked and so was my Yorkshire pudding. The Asparagus was limp and the mash potato was definitely not the best. You can tell the restaurant had just reopened and I don’t think the Chef was back on duty yet.

The patio setting is really beautiful and it was so quiet. The service was excellent. Prime rib was great, but everything was just a bit pricier than it should have been.
