    Ordered chicken supreme as usual. Salty and full of cream cheese. This dish is NOT the same dish as in the past. They must have a different chief. Many customers complaining of the quality of food. Front desk did admit that they changed their menu. Perhaps when you change your menu rename new item so that repeat guests are not surprised.

    Warm, festive atmosphere in the beautiful setting of The Cannery. for a traditional roast beef dinner, this is the place. The room was quiet enough to hear each other well, and warm enough to be totally comfortable. Our server was engaging, and performed well.

    Very lovely spot for a nice meal. Service was excellent. Had prime rib which was great except no gravy for the Yorkshire pudding leaving it very dry. A bit pricey but we’re able to split the main fir additional $10 so some value there and more than enough with a starter.

    First, I would like to explain the "very good" rating that I gave for "service" and acknowledge Allison who was truly OUTSTANDING in that regard. When we were seated, we were given the name of our server (not Allison) and told she would be right with us. Fourteen minutes later, as we'd been listening to the other server have extensive conversations with diners at two different tables in close proximity to ours, Allison took the initiative to come over and ask if our server had been by. When we told her that she had not, Allison asked if she could bring us something to drink. She returned with our beverages and then took our order. When it became apparent that she had taken over serving our table for the one who never stopped by, I asked her name so that I could acknowledge her in a review. My husband and I were both grateful for her initiative in recognizing that we'd been ignored by our assigned server and appreciative of the courteous and attentive service that she provided from then until the end of our meal. If she had been our server from the beginning, the service would have been 5-star, I have no doubt. Thank you, Allison!

    My wife and I enjoyed a three course dinner as part of a Sunday special stay at the Pillar and Post. We were expecting a special menu for this package price but instead we had fee reign to order whatever we wished for appetizer, main and desert. I chose the Prawn appetizer, short rib main and chocolate peanut butter brule while she had Caesar salad, rib eye steak and tiramisu. All courses were superb and inspired creations.

    Just returned home after a wonderful meal at the Cannery. Great potato and bacon soup, perfect on a chilly, rainy day. Fabulous prime rib dinner. Huge portion of prime rib prepared exactly as we asked, loaded baked potatoes and delicious asparagus and other assorted vegetables. Fire was blazing in the dining room, lovely Christmas decor, well spaced out tables and a sense of peacefulness. Will definitely return!

    We stayed at Pillar & Post to celebrate our birthdays so The Cannery was convenient and the perfect date night spot. We order the assorted breads and a Caesar salad for appetizers to split. Both were fantastic. My husband had the ribeye and I had the short ribs. To say they were excellent wouldn’t be complimentary enough. I can easily say this was the best meal we’ve had all year. We were too full for dessert so our server packaged up 2 butter tarts that we ate while in our pajamas in bed. It was also delicious! Compliments to the chef! 🙏🏻

    We had crab cakes. They were mushy and not hot. We also had their prime rib. It was extremely fatty. The dessert was good though. The meal was very expensive and the food was just not worth it. Will not eat here again.

    We have dined at the Cannery numerous times over the years and it never disappoints . The food was amazing and our waiter (Derek) was top notch in his service . We have had Derek serve us the last three times that we have dined there and was very happy that he served us again . We were celebrating an anniversary and a perfect table setting was given .

    I have always considered the Cannery Restaurant to be the best in the region and beyond. While I live in Mississauga, I try to find a reason to travel to Niagara on the Lake and then have dinner at the Cannery. The selection and quality of food is excellent and is matched only by the service. I also appreciate that the venue is not loud, allowing people to enjoy the experience and their dinner conversation.

    The flat iron steak was tough and full of veins, not sushi style as advertised. Beans were added to my meal, but were not noted on the menu. So I added a side order of vegetables which I didn’t need.
