Canal Side Inn – Dinner for Two

Canal-Side-Inn | Little Falls NY | Mohawk Valley Today

It had been a long hectic week, and it was still Wednesday. Appointments, meetings and other distractions seemed to have taken over. 

After leaving a meeting at Canal Place in Little Falls, we climbed in our car and let out a long exhaled breath to help unwind before we began moving again. Another long day and the time was approaching 7:00pm. 

Starting the car we thought about what to do for dinner. Looking out the windshield the welcoming green window canopies and the words, “Canal Side Inn” caught our attention.

We shut off the car and walked across the street to get some dinner. We just wanted to be still for a little while before heading home. And we were so glad that the Canal Side Inn caught our attention!

The Canal Side Inn in historic Canal Place, Little Falls, NY, is a warm, inviting, and welcoming place that is great for special occasions, celebrations, events, or just to stop by mid-week for a great meal.

Once we arrived we immediately felt at home as we settled in, looking forward to a nice meal and good company. Everything was superb. 

Chef John Luciano at the Canal Side Inn Little Falls NY | Mohawk Valley Today

Chef John had recently updated the menu and the options all looked so good and tempting it was hard to decide. We recommend you stop by and take a peek yourself and see what you find most appealing.

We opted to start with the Maryland Bleu Crabe Gâteau as a starter. For the main course we each tried something different.  The Poulet Croquettes and the Not Your Average Meatloaf were both exceptionally satisfying. We really enjoyed our meal savoring each bite as we explored the flavors, seasoning, and textures of these wonderfully crafted dishes.

Getting back in the car and heading home we felt renewed, energized and fulfilled.

Our stop at the Canal Side Inn was just the break we needed.

We were able to take some time for ourselves and have a nice meal together in a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. Thanks so much to Chef John and all of the staff!
