We stopped by here with another large group this past week. It can be fun, especially if you know the locals who seem to congregate there each night. I've never eaten in the back restaurant room, but you can get food at the bar, and the drinks are good. It is the only place to go out in Gasport!

I go to this bar mainly with friends, as it is small and extremely "local," not the kind of place where an out-of-towner would spend much time. The drinks are good in there and the service is friendly, but I probably wouldn't recommend going there specifically for dinner. The music can get a bit loud, making conversation difficult. I give...

Great food, friendly service, eclectic personable clientle all in a local venue atmosphere. Beef on weck as good or better than you'll find anywhere. Try it you'll love it. We come here from New England and never miss it.

Canalside doesn't change much from year-to-year, so this is probably going to sound a lot like my previous review of the place. It's about the only nightlife in the small town of Gasport, so it receives all 4-5 bar patrons the town has. It's a quiet little place with not much to do, but the patrons all know one another,...

.......A great spot in an unlikely location with about as "good as it gets" beef-on-wick you'll find anywhere in the area. The curb appeal leaves something to be desired, but once inside you encounter friendly service, nice clientele and interesting decor. As a local pub it's terrific, but as a terrific dining spot it also qualifies, and shouldn't be judged... More

A few of us stopped by here again this past week, and I must say that nothing really ever changes in this small bar, located in the small town of Gasport. For its location, Canalside is a nice little place, with about half the space (and most of the customers) more interested in the drinks than the food. The menu... More

A bunch of us stopped into the Canalside Inn last week after a meeting...it's a very interesting place, but certainly a lot more of a bar than a restaurant. It does have a dining room in the back, but from what I saw there was no one eating in it. The front of the place is a very inviting barroom,... More
