“Awesome happy hour”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

Went here on a Monday holiday and had a nice time. We went in early and had a window table during the happy hour. The drinks were pretty cheap and had a great food menu that was priced pretty well for such a nice restaurant. If you can catch the happy hour it is a great value and the service was excellent!

“Still Wonderful. Jaw dropping view.”
Reviewed 3 November 2010

My hubby and I got married at Cannons 5 years ago, so I admit I have a soft spot for this place. We went there to celebrate our anniversary and took our 3 month old son. It's hard to take your eyes off the view. Service is informal (surfer dudes and dudette types--but hey, you're in a coastal california town). The food is good. We ordered several courses and were happy with each of them. Great place to get married--you can't ask for a better view in OC, and they did a great job for us.

As we did for our wedding night, we stayed at the blue lantern inn next door (they actually have a walkway going to Cannons). Very convenient if you are staying there--just walk over to Cannons and enjoy their impressive wine list without having to drive.

“Great food, service, and view!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

This was one of our favorite places to eat. The view is spectacular. We had a wonderful meal and good service. It's not elegant, but upscale casual. We found most of the area restaurants that way.

“Been eat there for 30 years plus.”
Reviewed 23 May 2009

The view is spectacular as others have said. About 30 years ago they burned my wife's lobster but other than that everything has been fine. If you are looking for Spago's or some such this isn't it. It a typical beach restaurant with a fabulous view. My food has always been above average expect for the burned lobster (they didn't serve it to us by the way and this was previous ownership). I agree its a little pricey but considering the georgous location I imagine some of that extra cost is for the high rent.

Never had a problem with any of the staff and our family even had a wedding there which was very good.

“Average + Over priced”
Reviewed 18 February 2009

As my father was staying next door we choose Cannons. We were greeted by a musty odour in the main restaurant which didnt get things off on a good start, it matched the stale decor.
Service was good. View is great.
On average Entrees were $25, my father liked the Lamb which was $29. These prices didnt reflect the quality of food or decor.
In short, the restaturant needs a face lift, a menu update and a chef. This seems to be the theme of seafood type restaurants located near harbors - outdated interior, overpriced average food.
