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.

Food was good but not worth the money. I had to sent back my order because my prime rib was cooked well done when I asked for medium rare and the Yorkshire pudding was burnt.

This was one of the best restaurants I've dined at in a long time. Wonderful experience. If you are in the Niagara on the Lake area, stop in, you won't regret it.

Although we had reservations, when we got to the restaurant we were told they were closed for a private event. We ended up eating in the lounge which was very good but disappointing.

We heartily enjoyed our dinner and breakfast at the Cannery. It was a lovely complement to our visit at the Pillar and Post.

We had an AWESOME experience - food was great, but our server, Sarah, was even better. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The perfect evening - because we were there was about 3 hours.

The only thing I could suggest is maybe more seasonal drinks and soft music

Only downfall is the elevator is located right by the romantic spot in the restaurant which makes for distraction from your evening

And what happened to the little pallet cleansers that used to be served before the entrees
Those were always amazing

The Cannery is a must for us when visiting the Niagara area. We have never been disappointed in the quality of food or quality of service . Our recent visit was yet another testament to the consistency of food & service this restaurant delivers.

Fantastic experience! The 2 of us had a table in front of cozy fireplace on a cold winter night. Appetizer was fresh and tasty. Prime rib was perfect. The only recomendation I have is baked potato and Yorkshire pudding was a little on the dry side. Waitress was amazing. Great service!

We dined at the Cannery on January 15, 2018 and we highly recommend it. The service was top-notch and the food was absolutely delectable. My husband enjoyed a wonderful NY strip steak that was so tender it just melted in your mouth. I wanted the Seafood Linguine but cannot eat wheat so the chef made me Seafood Risotto instead. I was very impressed with the degree the chef/server went out of their way to ensure that we were happy. The desserts were to die for!
This is a restaurant that is special enough to celebrate an event, or just perfect for a romantic evening.
