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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the cannery. The food was very tasty and cooked to our liking.Our waitress Lisa was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We are very fortunate to have as many wineries in Southern Ontario to choose from. The Cannery has many options that can satisfy your tastes. I would highly recommend trying their deserts, wanna fritters were awesome! Definitely returning!

The atmosphere is lovely and we took company there for dinner and they raved about the food and service.
It is one of our favourite restaurants. We'll be back again.

Good quality food. Loved the prim rib sandwich and the fish and chips on the lunch menu.
The ambiance was perfect with Christmas decorations.

You can't go wrong with their Prime Rib dinner which we have enjoyed many times before. Seated next to the fireplace for great atmosphere. Service was slow due to holiday staffing issues. Confusion was caused by the $50 Temptations package restaurant food credit when paying our final bill. Very poor process in handling this credit which should automatically come off the dinner check. Our room number was provided to the restaurant hostess before we were seated. The credit should have been recorded on their computer for our table. A lot of back and forth afterwards. Not very professional.

Food is not worth the price! Cooked veg were limp and tasteless, rare roast beef was reheated on grill and very tough, just not the quality you would expect for a 4 star. Very disappointing and definately would not recommend!

Exactly what we were looking for. Nice comfortable setting to enjoy a Christmas dinner, sitting right in front of the fireplace and surrounded by other couples and families. Dinner was the classic Christmas menu, not too much, not too little, just right.

Excellent meal and experience. Splitting the prime rib worked out very well. Pricey but upscale food, decor and service. No question. We will be back.

It was slammed and the staff was scrambling. The food is really good (when served hot). Our server seemed new. Our food took 40 minutes but we weren’t in a hurry.

Food was mediocre at best. Beef was terribly dried out, long line for omelette and waffles. The guy needs more help preparing everyone’s order. Bacon was either undercooked or totally burnt. Salad options were okay. Buttermilk blue cheese dressing was amazing. Desserts were good but only just cake options. If you don’t like cake then there wasn’t anything else except a gluten free cookie. We wouldn’t go back or recommend. Service was great though as was the ambience.

Surf and Turf was the best I have had in a long time and beautifully presented. Compliments to the chef. I have dined here before but never been as satisfied, 5 of us in the party and all in agreement

We were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. We said yes that we were celebrating our 42nd anniversary. Our server congratulated us, but didn't offer anything. I just was wondering if there should have been something.

I would not call the music “energetic” I would call it noisy. A softer background music would have been preferable. The food had good presentation, was well prepared and delicious. The ambient atmosphere of the building/restaurant added to the evening.

Our server Danielle was personable, pleasant and professional. The mussels were the best I have ever had (and I order them out frequently). A simple salad was memorable due to the fresh, crisp and cool romaine lettuce. Both the prime rib and strip steak were tender, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our birthday dinner!!

This is a beautiful restaurant, particularly around the holidays. The servers are very pleasant and accommodating. The food was good (but not great). Overall a nice dinner out but likely better options for the cost.

It was a lovely meal and good service. The only negative comment I would say is just a food note - I had the scallop risotto, which although very tasty, was not really a risotto - it lacked the creamy texture associated typically with risotto - it was more like scallops on a rice dish. In that way, a little disappointing. My husband loved the Moroccan salmon dish, and the fish was perfectly cooked.

Wife and I had never been to Cannery before. We were visiting from out of town. The meal was great. We sat by a nice fire. I had the Prime Rib and she had a Rizotto. We had a really nice time. I would definitely recommend
