The food is fabulous. I had the short ribs that were falling off the bone and melted in my mouth. The whole evening was wonderful

The Cannery is the restaurant inside the Pillar and Post Hotel. My wife and I had 3 breakfasts and 1 dinner here last week. The breakfast buffet is fine. Just what you would expect. Friendly staff but not the the most attentive. Dinner was disappointing. Both our meals were rather tasteless.

We were on our honeymoon so we treated ourselves to some fine dining. Our server was terrific, the food was delicious and the ambiance was really nice. Dinner for two with appetizers, mains and a couple of cocktails was over $150 with tax and tip. Definitely a special occasion choice only.

Six of us had dinner at the Cannery Restaurant in the Pillar and Post hotel located in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We all thoroughly enjoyed wonderful food, a comfortable room-warm & inviting along with Derek, our excellent waiter. Would definitely return.

FOOD- We have dined in many fine dining locations and we are rarely disappointed. Our bill at this restaurant was over 200$ and although the food was good - it wasn't great. The soup was made with fresh ingredients but just didn't have any flavour. The steak and mushrooms were cooked well and passable - but nothing was delicious. The... More

My husband and I had dinner here this past weekend and it was great! Excellent service and the food delicious! I had the prime rib and my husband had the short ribs - both were outstanding! We also enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant - relaxed and comfortable but classy. We would definitely eat here again!

My husband and I stayed at The Prince of Wales Hotel but had a lovely dinner at The Cannery at the Pillar and Post. Jake was a fantastic and personable waiter who attended to our every need. It was a wonderful evening

I am sitting in the cannery… Finishing my Inniskillin ice wine… Wanting to capture the essence of this magnificent hotel/restaurant/spa. The atmosphere in the restaurant is so warm and comforting I could sit here for hours thinking, writing, drinking & eating… My seafood linguine was perfect! As was my husband's prime rib… He mentioned the best he has probably ever... More

We were drawn in to the Cannery because of the Fabulicious Menu offered. It was six lovely ladies for a birthday and we loved it. Anthony, our server was amazing from start to finish. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy. We all left feeling satisfied in our choices. I would and will be recommending the Cannery to... More

Had a fabulous breakfast at the Cannery, at the Pillar And Post Hotel, and spa. Buffet breakfast for my husband, and I had the Eggs Florentine with smoked Salmon and Very lite and fluffy Blue Berry pancakes both very good and filling, endless coffee and or tea. Service was very friendly and attentive. Would recommend this restaurant for those who... More

The Cannery menu will appease every appetite with a balanced selection of seafood, meat 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.
