Capture a magical moment of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s past as you dine in one of its most historic buildings. The four-diamond Cannery Restaurant of today is reminiscent of its former life as a canning factory in the 1800s, where Niagara peaches and tomatoes were canned until 1957. Its agricultural past has been lovingly retained in its décor of rough hewn wooden beams, rich red brick walls and a hearth at the heart of the restaurant. Chef Mark Longster continues to serve up the best of the region in his menus which feature the freshest local produce and fine wines. Charming and casual Cannery Restaurant is the place to find all your favorites, from succulent steaks to catch of the day to a fabulous Sunday brunch. Chef Longster's food is prepared and presented perfectly, for your ultimate dining experience.

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Cannery and it was lovely. We couldn’t decide between the short ribs and the spinach stuffed chicken so we each got one and shared. Both were amazing and we loved the ambiance.

We've eaten quite a few times at The Cannery. On arrival, the hostess showed us to a table for the 6 of us, in a very dark area of the restaurant, no lighting overhead whatsoever. We advised her that it wasn't an acceptable table, but she indicated that's all there was - she did say though she would turn up the lights - but an odd thing to say when there were no lights over the table. We suggested she could put other tables together that were in 'lighted' areas, but she never came back with any help. Along came Patricia, one of the servers in the restaurant, who took it upon herself to quickly set up another table in the front room and took care of us throughout the evening. We give very high kudos to her, but not the hostess on that evening.

Menu was ,I thought over priced even for a hotel/ tourist area. Had beef tenderloin. Over cooked and slightly chewy disappointed at these prices things should be perfect. Will not return.

I took my mother and her friend for Mother’s Day Brunch, arguably one of the biggest brunch days of the year. We had the first of two seatings.

The ambiance is lovely, bright and busy.

There were a lot of options in terms of food and the food was very fresh. I’m not typically a fan of buffets, but this one was well executed.

The service was just ok, our server came by infrequently and we were often left waiting for coffee or drinks. Though when our server did come, she was pleasant.

Wonderful! The hostess asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. When dessert came, they had written “happy Birthday “ in chocolate on the dessert plate. Service was tremendous without being ostentatious. We had the mussels and pistachio soufflé for appetizers, the prime rib and tenderloin for entrees. Could not have been better. We would definitely recommend and will definitely return.

I went to Cannery restaurant for our girls group birthday celebration. I must say the atmosphere and ambience was amazing and not to mention the food was delicious. The service was great and our waiter was very knowledgeable. The ladies were all amazed and felt this was a great choice to end our evening in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Nice location. Food was good but I can't say exceptional. Our server was good. When I made our reservation on-line the form asked if we were celebrating an occasion (our anniversary). Was surprised that this was acknowledged upon arrival but nothing after that. After spending a small fortune on our meal not even a complementary dessert like we have received at other Vintage Hotels at NOTL.

Have eaten here on a number of occasions and never disappointed. Derek was a fabulous attendant. Stayed the weekend at The Prince of Wales for the location as part of wife's 65th birthday and selected the Cannery as one of the restaurant options. Frequent Niagara on the Lake and none of the Vintages locations will ever disappoint.

I was not impressed with the vegetarian option. It was a pasta dish and honestly was very bland and not worth the money. It’s too bad, my husband enjoyed his meal very much, he is not a vegetarian.

The restaurant is great. Very nice atmosphere. Our server David was very attentive and was on it. He had a great personality and made us feel very welcome. The timing between our apps and main meal was spot on. The food was very good and the value was there. My only negative comment is that a restaurant of this quality at a very nice higher end hotel should not be nickle and diming you. We had ordered the prime rib for dinner and after a few bites asked if we could have a little more of the jus for our beef. It wasn't an issue getting it, but they charged us $3.00 for it! Really? Come on people it is embarrassing to say the least.

Menu is traditional with attempted but shallow creativity. Roast beef and steaks are excellent. Yorkshire pudding is generous but without jus or gravy. Sides and garnishes try to embellish but distract from good basic cooking. Pricing is very aggressive for local wines as well as their reliable yet unspecial sides, starters, mains, desserts and special coffees. Servers are very helpful. Decor really needs an update.

Food was delish. Server was okay.
When I asked for a pop refill and then noticed it wasn’t free on the bill would of been nice to know prior to. When someone says can I have a refill and they say no problem I assume it’s included.
Pop costs like 10 cents so to be charged $3 for each tiny glass and then not be told refills aren’t included would of been nice to know.
But over all good.
