Took my son and a friend for dinner and was very pleased. The counter person was friendly and efficient in taking our order. We ordered Chicken Wings, a Guac Burger and a Patty Melt; with a side of monzerella sticks. They were all terrific. Tim seemed to be everywhere helping patrons, sweeping the floor and generally making sure everything was... More

I started going to the Canyon Inn when I started my working career in Redwood City in 1976.....now retired, here in 2016 I still find that the Canyon Inn makes the best cheeseburgers in the Bay area and beyond. In fact I was just going to call in my to-go order when I paused to write this review. Gotta cut... More

Canyon Inn is a terrific neighborhood bar that has a good food selection of various pizzas and then typical Mexican offerings as well. Beer list is reasonably good. Decorated with tons of Niners memorabilia from the ages.

Since i live in the neighborhood, this has always been my family's go to place for a quick meal. Great spot to find a good hamburger. Great spot to drink your favorite ale with friends while watching the Giants Game.

Quite frankly, I wouldn't rate any food item as particularly outstanding. But the overall ambience and fun factor make this a great night out with the family. The staff provides good service and the owner is very nice. Kids love it!

My first visit to the Canyon Inn was exactly as expected. It is an old neighborhood institution with delicious burgers at reasonable prices. The burgers have names that make you feel like they are tried and true. You order at the counter and then peruse the sports memorabilia on the walls until your name is called. Though there were no...

The Canyon Inn is located a bit west of Downtown Redwood City. I come here for the food and atmosphere. It's a great place for comfort food and to watch sports. The burgers are great but there is so much more to enjoy here. Try a burrito, you will take half home for another meal!

I have been ordering the same British Burger here for the past 40 years and even though everything else has changed on the peninsula, the Canyon Inn is still the same. The British Burger has the most flavor of any burger I have ever had and I have had many around California and the US. I moved to the Southeast... More

The Canyon Inn used to be a local hot spot with several celebrities there in the afternoon, hanging out and having a hamburger. Some of the burgers are named after those celebrities. Back in the day, the first British burger I ever had (with strips of bacon) was at Canyon Inn, but the service was never great and now it... More
