We had a truly superb dinner here. The menu was extensive and really interesting. The prime rib was really tender (yum!) the best I have had in ages. The other guests had lamb shank and risotto, which were both excellent. The wine list was good...More

The food was wonderful. The four of us had a delicious dinner. The restaurant offers fireplaces for romantic dinners for couples. We had a very nice table and the food was excellent. I recumbent the pear salad.

The dinner hostess was lovely but the server was slow and clearly does not enjoy her job. Tried to come for breakfast but were 10 minutes late and nobody in sight to help us other than the cooking staff who were helpful.

The Cannery menu will appease every appetite with a balanced selection of steak, seafood, and vegetarian options. Our Executive Chef prepares generous portions that allow local Niagara-on-the-Lake ingredients to shine. Top it all off with a sweet and savoury dessert featuring fresh local fruits or devilishly dark chocolate. Every guest will leave satisfied with great service and an outstanding taste of Ontario cuisine. Every dish can be complemented by a selection from our extensive Wine List, filled with local and international favourites.
