We had happy hour and sunset dinner at the Cannon with friends who visited us in Dana Point. Good drink selection at good prices. Clam Chowder is amazingly creamy with a hint of spice. Service was great and views are amazing. Great place for a lazy end to a day or start to a fun evening.

Simply stated...we got seated and never saw a server after that. Had to ask for someone and attempted to ask about the prime rib and they said they were completely out. Wow! They were more interested in taking care of a large party than anything else. For a high-scale restaurant, you would like to think you would be taken care of....went to Chart House next door and had an excellent evening by far!

The service was so-so, for such a nice location high on a hill overlooking the water. It felt as though the servers were not empowered to take care of the guests. The entrees while not outstanding, were solid and well prepared . In the case of Cannons, the view( and Name) can sometimes suck you in. The food was good, but you’re indeed paying for the view. The Crab Beignet app was delicious, as were the mushrooms, the Cioppino entrée was quite good, but nowhere near the best I’ve had. A good visit, but it does not make my short list of places I’d venture back to.

Cannons is reputed as having the best view in the area, and it doesn't disappoint. We really enjoyed watching the boats sail in and out of the Dana Point Harbor below us. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Our waitress made us feel right at home. We were trying to make a decision between two red wines, so she offered to bring us a taste of each! We both agreed on the Napa Cellars, Napa Valley Cabernet to accompany our prime rib dinners. We ordered them medium rare and when we complained that one was over-cooked, it was substituted with another, even larger slice, cooked to perfection. The clientele are diverse in age and in dress. We really enjoyed the casual but energetic, atmosphere.
