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”.

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.

Loved our outdoor table on the dock. Great service and atmosphere. Not sure I will return soon though as the food was good but too rich and heavy. Our crab dip appetizer was too heavy and filling. Pretty much ruined my dinner appetite. But, that was my fault for ordering.
Next time I’ll choose True Food or Season’s 52 for a more healthy option.

Our food took forever. Our server went on break and forgot about us. When we finally received our food it was cold. One individual ordered a steak cooked medium. When we finally got our dinners her steak was well done and she had to send it back. It was a birthday dinner for someone who turned 70. It was her actual birthday. The evening was a failure for a 70 birthday celebration sadly.

This was our first time to the Cannery. Everything was perfect from our greeting by the hostess, the lovely table by the window with a view, to our server Danielle and the delicious food. The lobster pasta was the most memorable dish of the meal. Large pieces of pasta over a large bed of noodles with a light creamy sauce. Yum. We will definitely be back.
