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.

My husband and I enjoyed the prime rib special. We were surprised to find such a large restaurant but in our seating area, it felt very comfortable and intimate.

Great service and ambiance! Food choices disappointing - fresh and varied bread choices needed. Dessert - add seasonal pies,

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

We went for the first night of Fabulicious. Had a great experience, as always. With the promotion, so much the better. Great wait staff, classic ambiance, just what one would expect from one of the Vintage properties. First rate!

appetizers were very interesting. I had the surf and turf special ,it was wonderful to have lobster that tasted so fresh and flavorful . the steak was perfectly prepared and extremely tender. Best dinner I have had in years. Your chef should be proud of their work.

Everything was fantastic. We came here for the first time about a year ago for a company Christmas dinner and just loved it. So we came back this time for our Anniversary. Can't wait to come back!

Although the service and ambiance was wonderful , some of the food left much to be desired. My husband had the scallop risotto which was delicious but my prime rib plate had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp for some time as the jus was dried up and the popover hard as a rock! While I do not mind paying a lot for a well cooked and presented meal this one was not worth half the price. Avery disappointing.

Absolutely. Best prime rib I've had in a long time and my wife enjoyed the tenderloin/lobster special. Great seating in front of the fireplace. We arrived a little early but were seated promptly. Food was wonderful, atmosphere perfect and our server Allison was professional and casual in perfect balance. Will return again.

The food and ambiance at the Cannery is simply outstanding. Nothing was rushed - four of us spent a leisurely two and a half hours and enjoyed every minute and every morsel. The Christmas decorations were stunning. This is a five-star establishment.

The Cannery ambience was excellent.
We both had the prime rib which included Yorkshire pudding, green beans, asparagus, parsnips, carrots and a bake potato with the works. Nicely, plated together. The prime rib was extremely tender.
Top it off we had a friendly server who provided excellent service.

It’s time to retire salmon Marrakech. We pescatarians want to try something new and more in keeping with the region. Maybe salmon prepared with maple syrup or wine. Our server was great. The banana fritters were recommended by the man bussing tables. Best rec on our trip. They were amazing!

No disappointments. Service was excellent by Patricia. Prime rib, surf & turf entrees were hearty portions. Recommend the mussels appetizer to share. Wine by the bottle pricing was very reasonable.
Great ambiance with fireplaces and Xmas décor.

Had the special. Lobster and beef tenderloin. Lobster was barely edible. Tasted like it was precooked and reheated. Tough and spongy. The beef was cooked beautifully but lacked flavour. Far too much money for the meal we received.

The food was excellent, however the Pillar and Post was hosting a corporate event and as we were settling into pre-dinner beverages and conversation the room became very loud as what I estimate to be 50 to 100 conference attendees entered the room. While they were not boisterous, the noise level from all these people chatting away as they lined up to be seated was such that we could not hear our tablemates and somewhat distracting, eliminating any sense of ambience. I would suggest that the management either find a separate area for these large and loud corporate events to dine in, or advise regular dinner guests before they make a reservation of the potential situation. Other than the noise, it was an enjoyable dinner.

We went specifically for the prime rib and enjoyed tremendously. Our server was excellent and helped us with wine selection which paired well with the meat. We were seated close to one of the fireplaces which contributed to the ambience.
