The fish is incredible however, a little overpriced! Chilean Sea Bass $48.00, a small portion and no extras! Mashed Potatoes are $11.00, which will serve 2-3 adults. Pacific Swordfish is $38. A Grilled Chicken Breast is lowest priced at $28.00. A wedge salad starts at $14.00. Total bill for four about $255.00 Service is excellent but for that amount it... More

We were able to park our Duffy outside the Cannery and tie up. This was a nice dinner, but not as nice as I had expected. It was given some hype by some friends of ours and ultimately turned out to be not quite as good as they stated but either way it was a great dinner with friends and... More

Great location on the end of the Newport Bay roundabout, lots of nice boats cruising up and making a u-turn to see. Great food!

Many of their appetizers are half-off during happy hour. Drinks are discounted. Location is great, atmosphere is a bit of everything (glass artwork, sports jerseys, etc.).

This is a really nice waterside restaurant in an upscale district of Newport Beach. The atmosphere is casual, kid friendly and relaxed. Service staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Everything we got was amazing from the fish tacos and cabbage salad to the Kung Pao beef which was the best I have ever had. Seriously. Put this restaurant on your... More

Great scene and location, but I can't seem to get good food there. It is okay, just not great. Try it for drinks and appetizers if you want to check it out.

We had a fabulous, romantic and tasty meal at The Cannery. The best things, for us, were the starters- a really great place of oysters on the half shell (the rosy mignonette was a lovely, light and flavorful accompaniment), and the Tahitian ceviche was to die for. After that, the entrees (as good as they were) were good but not... More

Beautiful restaurant on the water front. Access by Duffy Boat. Menu has good selection. Nice bar with nice selection of craft cocktails as well a very moderately priced wine list. Service was attentive without being obtrusive.
