Loved this restaurant

We went to the Canal Side Inn for Mothers Day, what a treat! The staff was amazing as was our dinner. Thank you so much!


Wonderful Improvements

My wife and I have dined at the Canal Side numerous times over the years so we were slightly skeptical about the new owners and their vision of the restaurant. As soon as we arrived, we were put at ease to see wonderful improvements to what was always one of our favorite places to eat!

The changes were subtle but pleasantly noticeable- they modernized the “Canal Side magic” while keeping everything we love about the place. Maintaining much of the original staff, they offer professional service with a warmth you can’t find elsewhere and the new chef expresses himself with a range of tasty dishes and even comes out to the tables to check on his guests!

Keep it up the great work folks!


Great Atmosphere

Absolutely amazing dinner, great atmosphere and the staff is exquisite!

A truly wonderful experience

We heard that Chef John was the new chef at the Canal Side and immediately made a reservation — we “experienced” Chef John at Teugega Country Club and were determined to follow him to his next destination.

We were not disappointed. Upon arrival, Chef John greeted us and made several outstanding recommendations that we truly enjoyed. After dinner, one of the owners came to our table and chatted with us about the restaurant and the community; she was truly interested in our input and comments.
A truly wonderful experience.

Put this restaurant on your bucket list

It’s a beautiful restaurant that was Canal Side Inn. It has been purchased and is now Henry’s with a new staff. The bar is a booming place to sit down with a drink and order from the menu. They have a lovely dining room and the wait staff are extremely accommodating. Put this restaurant on your bucket list next time you visit Little Falls NY.

Recommend to families

The food was delicious, the service exceptional. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in. We came with two children who were welcomed and the staff, chef and owners made a point to go out of their way to make sure our children were enjoying their experience as much as we were! The chef came out to speak to each table as did the owners who were gracious and very considerate. I would recommend this to families interested in a fantastic meal but also couples looking for a great date night.
