My friend’s and I have been coming to the Cannery religiously for the past five years. We’ve particularly been patrons of the upstairs bar and have come to absolutely love and especially rave about your garlic fries to the masses - bringing all friends and family there to experience. We’ve continued to support the restaurant throughout the pandemic as well. You can imagine then, our devastation, when we learned that the garlic fries were no longer on the menu. We kindly ask you to please reconsider reinstating the garlic fries to your menu. We certainly can’t be the only ones missing them - and a night at The Cannery is simply not the same without them! Thank you so much for your consideration! N.B. Cole is a wonderful server!

I loved it! Right from the get go and walking in and seeing the beautiful jellyfish and all the decorations OMG I wanted to take a tour of it! I could just look at the ceiling all day. My girlfriend and I could not get over how beautiful the restaurant was but then when the food came out it made it even Better! Ugh I cannot WAIT to go back. Amazing experience all around! Great service, beautiful restaurant,, beautiful view, and great food.
Please tell me they do tours of it because that it something I would love to do.

The Cannery is one of my family's favorite restaurants. The Cannery never disappoints. The ambience is comfortable friendly elegance. Service is top notch. Most importantly, the food is absolutely delicious! Leave room for dessert and coffee, the perfect end to a wonderful meal.
Our Thanksgiving dinner at The Cannery was lovely on the patio!

Went for Thanksgiving. We love this restaurant. By accident we were served the kiddie plates. Noticed our meal was small. The waiter surprised us by bringing us two adult meals to bring home, totally redeemed himself and it was great having leftovers for Thanksgiving. It’s never the mistake, tithe recovery!

Always enjoy The Cannery. Highly recommended. Patio is perfect for those cold evenings. Can’t wait fir Jelly Fish Lounge (upstairs) to open and we can’t go back to what we have to be “normal”.

Tuesday nights have become "HAPPY HOUR TUESDAYS" w/ a light menu of sushi, appetizers and discounts on beer and wine. Food was excellent, Hot Edamame, Shishito Peppers, Rolls and Chicken Skewers, good selection of beer on tap.

With all things considered Civid, had a great experience, nice views of the bay and heated well enough on a cold night.

The tables are not 6 feet apart as required for coronavirus safety. The diners at the table next to ours were about 2 feet away, which was concerning to us, especially since they were from three different households.
One of us has a gluten and dairy allergy, which was not handled well. We asked questions about the appetizers and were told that the server would check with the kitchen. Without checking back with us, she brought the shrimp cocktail, dropped it on the table and said "both sauces are unsafe for you, so don't eat them." Obviously, if we had known that in advance, we would not have ordered the dish at all and would have chosen something else.
Plus: convenient valet parking and good wine list. Minus: outdoor heating system was erratic, resulting in overheating and then being cold as adjustments were made.

My lobster was well-priced and delicious. everyone loved their choice. Nice wine selection, and our waiter did a great job highlighting the dishes that he thought should be tried. Also, the carrot cake was excellent.
We drove from Los Angeles and our friends drove from San Diego - we all thought it was worth the trip

Service was excellent and the outside seating was very nice with the view of the marina. We had sushi, prawns and salad and all were delicious. Sushi tasted fresh and the prawns had great flavor. Also loved the mai tais, as they weren’t weak like most restaurants serve. Cannery wasn’t chintzy on the rum and I appreciated that! We will definitely be back!

It was a disappointing experience at the Cannery tonite. Our scallops were raw and we were not able to eat them. The reservation indicated it was a Birthday but there was no acknowledgement of it .... why ask ? Not the Cannery I remember and always enjoyed.
