I saw this restaurant overlooking the bay and decided to try it out. I had a long drive ahead of me so I ordered to go. The experience was good. The valet let me self-park right by the entrance. Ordering was very easy, as they took care of it right at the front counter. While I waited for my food,... More

We are regulars at this restaurant! We love how fresh the seafood is and how tasty it is. They always make my kids something special and off the menu. Not once have they ever denied or said they are too busy. The view is breathtaking and the food and service are great. The best items are the " wedge" salad.... More

It's a view to die for! Get here at sunset and watch our harbor and coastline go through its daily evening metamorphosis. And while doing this either enjoy a cocktail and appetizer, or better yet, a meal from a table with an outstanding view! Last night was our "gazillionth" time at our favorite dining spot, Cannons!. As locals we have... More

My wife and I were hosted here for a business dinner with 10 other guests. The high cliff setting provided beautiful views of the coastline to the south. The lights of homes on the hillside and near the beach soon took effect and provided a great scenery while we enjoyed our dinner. The ambiance, service, and seafood were outstanding. outstanding.

The setting has great views! The food however leaves little to be desired! Have eaten here a few times and it's just mediocre! It needs a MAJOR renovation too! Musty smell. Like I said -- check out the view, have a cocktail, and relax but don't expect a fine dining experience!

Took friends there on September 03, 2016. Ordered calamari - highly doubt it was calamari came is long strips of something and tasteless. Fish and chips were horrible, no taste and french fries came cold. Filet steak was tough and had a odd taste - again highly doubt it was a filet. We paid a really high price for the... More

Cannons is right next door to The Blue Lantern Inn, but nothing special. It is overpriced, average food. I suggest dining elsewhere. I recommend What A Dish! Happy Hour is awesome and our dinner was great! We returned the next day for lunch, and it was just a delicious. Perfectly priced with fresh food! Indoor our outdoor seating! Enjoy!

We went for happy hour and sat on the deck. Fantastic view. The cocktails and happy hour priced wines are very good. The food was also of very good quality, Calamari, Wedge salad and Bacon burger, gave us leftovers to take home.

Had the best view of the harbor, wish I would of found this place sooner as I visited last day on my vacation. Nice but expensive sit down restaurant. We had bacon wrapped shrimp as appetizer which was disappointing shrimp were dry and bacon over done. I was more impressed with my entrée fresh salmon. Would definitely visit again.
