I have eaten here a number of times recently, and I have to say the specials are always amazing. The owner goes out and gets an extremely fresh top-grade cut of meat or fish and whatever it is gets cooked up by a very decent chef and served as a special - it is always great. Also, their craft beer... More

My husband and I spent this past Saturday evening at the Canalside. We were greeted by and served by Greg! This was our first visit but certainly will not be our last. Many of our friend's rave about the food and the fine selection of craft beer. This was our opportunity to see for ourselves. We started our meal with... More

Ate there for the first time on a recommendation. The dinner menu has a good variety of choices including new items. The food and service were excellent. Some things I thought might have been priced a little high but generally the menu is well priced.

I have been going here for 10 years, since they have opened. The menu is excellent and they keep it fresh by updating regularly and offering daily specials. The quality of the food is great, and the prices are good (a little on the higher end for Port Colborne, but you would pay much more for the same quality in... More

Had eaten here previously and returned for family dinner. Menu has different selections from pub style to pasta or steak. Food was very good for all of us. Good selection of beers, Lock 8 is my favourite. Will definitely return.

Have had dinner here several times and enjoyed it. Nothing fancy, but tasty food and good serving size. The atmosphere is 'pubby' and convivial. Prices are reasonable and there is a good beer selection. We stayed overnight once in the apartment upstairs. Wouldn't do that again -- noisy until about 2 a.m. even though they closed at 11 -- seemed... More

Yum! I have eaten here on many occasions and had a variety of food which is always delish! May I suggest the fish? Nothing quite like sitting on the patio in the summer with a really tasty fish with mango chutney.

What a great spot this is for a casual lunch or out for date night!!! Staff is friendly, and food is fantastic! Sit out on the patio in the summer and watch the ships pass under the lift bridge.
