My nephew chose the restaurant because we wanted seafood. It was a good choice. We love the place. While waiting, we could see some souvenirs, mostly baseball stuff. The food was very good. We all enjoyed it. The service was also good. The only thing that bother us was the noise from the other tables. Very good choice.

My son brought me here as a surprise. He lives nearby and knew that I would love it here. I had the best Lobster pasta it's the best I've ever tasted, it was simply gorgeous. We sat outside and the view was breathtaking looking at all the boats. I will definitely be going back. Superb service as well X

We came here for Saturday brunch to celebrate a birthday. We had a large group of 16 but there was plenty of room. Though all the seats on the patio were reserved, we were able to see the water views from our table inside. The service was exceptional and food came out quickly. Everything was delicious! New favorite spot.

We've been to The Cannery a couple of times and both times the food has been exceptional. Both times the service was crazy slow. If you have the time to sit back and enjoy your company, I'd recommend it. We had the Endive Salad and Clam Chowder to start with. The Endive Salad is absolutely wonderful. My husband really liked...

The food at The Cannery was fresh, attractively presented and delicious. We had crab cakes as an appetizer and they were lightly breaded, crisp on the outside and mostly all crab meat on the inside. Very tasty. Our entree was Loup de Mar which was a Mediterranean Sea Bass filleted and served with a delicate sauce. This was also very... More

Went for Happy hour, nice atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices. I would be shocked at having to pay full rates though. Definitely do yourself a favour and go during happy hour.

I ended up having the filet which was excellent. Ordered medium and it was perfect (still plenty of pink but not raw). Extensive wine list. I forgot to ask if they offered a local fresh/ catch of the day fish option. Most of the fish on the menu appeared to be shipped in. I felt bad ordering beef at the... More

We opted to eat in the upstairs lounge because they offer both the dinner and sushi menus. No sushi in the main restaurant. Cool atmosphere but pretty busy on a Friday night. Food was great and service was just ok. Probably would have been better served with more staff or if they were less busy. The cannery roll was awesome!
