The Cannery Kitchen & Social celebrates Canada's vibrant history and roots on the East Coast. This celebration is influenced by a time when the industry's canning of fish had boomed and the Saint John River was frequently navigated as a channel for exports. Canneries provided a significant source of income for locals while also attracting a global workforce.

With a nod to a slower pace of life, we welcome guests to relax and enjoy food and drinks in our Canadian restaurants.

    Food was ok nothing special. Our server was very nice. It was a ghost town though and too brightly lit for the evening we were sitting by the window and the light were turned up full blast.

    Good food and reasonable prices. Was expecting a different vibe, the restaurant was well lit and really bright, the ambiance would have been better if it was a bit more dim and the breakfast buffet area was somehow covered or out of sight. Our waiter didn't seem to care much about our table, when he asked if we were ready to order he waited only one second before running off and stating he was busy and then didn't check in on us throughout the meal. Waited at the table a long time after our meals were done to pay. The staff was friendly and very well dressed upon arrival. Overall it was a good experience just not quite what we were expecting, I would go back again for lunch but not a fancy dinner out. There was 10 in our group and we are in our late 20's for reference.

    Thé menu was ok except 3 of the most appealing items were missing. The atmosphere for evening is a bit like a cafeteria. It is too bad because there is a nice view but high lighting and the opposite of a nice cozy pub or dining room. My club sandwich tasted fine, the quinoa salad my husband had was very good. East coast hodge lodge was heavy and not traditional. Fish and chips were good. With so many places to eat in the city and even Quinpool road area, the lack of atmosphere in this location will keep me from returning. And, we live on the street and go out for dinner once a week. Having said that, the bar area looked more interesting and welcoming. Hopefully the new downtown restaurant will be more interesting! Thank you. Kelly

    We were belatedly celebrating an April birthday meal which had to be postponed due to a pending surgery so we we were in a great mood when arriving at the restaurant. Unfortunately we had to wait almost 45 minutes for our appetizers and then within five minutes of finishing them our main meal came out. As a result we were not able to finish our main meal and the celebratory feelings we had arrived with were pretty much dashed. Our server Duane was friendly and helpful but it would have been nice if he'd come to tell us during our 45 minute wait that some staff hadn't come in and that things were backed up in the kitchen. It was all a bit disheartening. As a separate comment, we had the breakfast buffet the next morning and were very disappointed. While plentiful, the food was cold and not of great quality. The omelettes had very little flavour and the sausage were quite greasy.

    Enjoyed our meals. Everyone was well satisfied. I have had your veggie burger in the past which was so dry and crumbly that I wrote to the food and beverage manager about my level of dissatisfaction. This time the veggie burger was one of the best I have tasted in Halifax. The only complaint, and a minor one, is that the bun was not up to the level of the fillings. Great meal all and all and I was able to get a fruit cup for dessert which was not on the menu. Great meal.

    Our meal was delicious. I had a side Caesar salad that was the best one I have ever had. The fish and chips had large servings and the fillet melted in my mouth. We had a window table with a nice view to outside. The server was charming and checked in just the right amount. We really enjoyed our meal.

    Service was quite slow. We were told the reason for the delay was it takes longer to cook a burger than pasta. We waited one hour and 13 minutes for our meal.

    The View was beautiful as the sun was setting with a nice view looking over the Commons. Food was okay - service was spotty, no masks and a cool austere environment ie. not a lot of warmth: it was a birthday dinner but didnt really feel like it was special. Dessert was tasty. Glad we had a gift card.

    Went here with some friends for dinner. The restaurant itself was very nice. It was quite empty when we arrived. They had some great choices on the food menu. There was no cocktail menu, so it wasn’t easy to order a drink that you might want. After we ordered the food it was quite slow to come to the table (especially considering the place was empty). Unfortunately the mussles I ordered we not good and had a very fishy taste. I did tell the server who said he would remove them from the bill, but didn’t. The staff were all very nice. I really did want to like it here, but unfortunately it was not great.

    The ambience is beautiful here we made a reservation and were disappointed there wasn't a brunch menu. I found the menu very small and it didn't offer much choice especially if you had food allergies and some of the items were quite pricy for what they were. The service wasn't that great either the restaurant was pretty empty. We had to ask for things multiple times and things were missing from my food. At first we were sure if she was the only waitress working and that was the reason why, later we found out there was someone else working when a waiter came over with our bill while we were still eating to inform us she had to leave. If the food were slightly better I'd probably rate it higher. It's such a shame because it is such a beautiful place. Hope they can turn things around.

    The location was perfect for an evening at the Scotia Bank Centre…easy to park and walk downtown. The calamari was excellent, the fish tacos were a hit with my friends, and the quinoa salad was delicious. The mushroom ravioli was good. Unfortunately, the bahn mi wrap was bland - almost all rice paper and noodles with hardly any filling- and the “artisan” pizza was more like a grocery store frozen pizza with chopped tomatoes on it. I would return for the calamari and the view.

    No way to check in with reservation Server seemed to ignore that we had a reservation My parents called ahead with a credit card to surprise us by paying for our meal, ad it was our 10th wedding anniversary. Their card was not charged, I was given and paid the bill. Long wait for order to be taken, food to be delivered to table, to receive bill, to pay bill once received. Food was lower quality than expected, especially given prices Unimpressive wine & beer list, over priced domestic beer. Cannot recommend this restaurant

    My wife and I have passed by the restaurant many times always envying the lucky people that get to dine at the big window. We decided we wanted to be those people in the window enjoying a nice meal. I requested a table for 2 and specifically asked for the window seat. When we arrived there were many seats available and we could have sat anywhere but the host took us right to the big window where our seat was reserved. It made us really happy. The food was excellent. One of my favourite bbq sauces that I ever tried was on the chicken sandwich. Well done!

    I booked this reservation for my friends and I for her birthday. We had planned to be there for about 2 hours for drinks and some appetizers. We weren’t even greeted for about 20 minutes, and didn’t get our first drink until an hour in. We were there for 3.5 hours total and each had 2 drinks, and some of us didn’t even eat because we never got the desert menu we had asked for when the waitress first arrived. It was no fault of our waitress, however, as her management had her doing room service and restaurant service on an extremely busy weekend. She was literally running back and forth, trying to make us drinks, deliver food and keep track of everything. I am underwhelmed by Cannery and the Atlantica’s management for a new place that we were quite excited to try. The food was okay, but not worth that wait. The lighting was bright and uninviting, and we felt neglected as the other side of the restaurant was being taken care of by multiple servers, and looked like they were having a great time. All in all, I will not be recommending Cannery to anyone. Very unfortunate dining experience

    The appetizers were lovely. For the entree, most of the steaks were not cooked to the level requested. The desserts were disappointing as the donuts were very very dry and stale. However, the waiter was the largest disappointment. He neglected to bring drinks and didn’t replenish them when asked. One drink was only 1/2 a glass for some reason, yet charged for a full one. He threw a box on the table for leftovers. We were all shocked and disappointed by his demeanour.
