Cannons Seafood Grill

Orange County



Located on a cliff overlooking the Dana Point Harbor, Cannons Seafood Grill occupies a historic setting chronicled in Richard Henry Dana’s novel, Two Years Before the Mast. With incomparable views of the Southern California coastline, Cannons offers a spectacular backdrop for showers, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions. Start your life under an arch of gently hanging flowers while perched high above the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Gaze to the west for miles to the edge of the horizon, and enjoy the serenity of the marina as countless boat masts pierce the sky. Your dining experience will be as memorable as the sweeping views, with a fresh and modern menu expertly prepared by the restaurant’s culinary team. Have your reception while the sun sinks below the Earth and casts vibrant stripes of pink and orange across the heavens, or celebrate at night with an intimately lit party on our outdoor patio.
