After the girl scouts in my daughter's troop finished​ with their cookies sales in the 2016 year, this was one of the outings they wanted to do. Dinner and a show, what a marvelous time! Good entertainment, good food and excellent service. We will do this again!

We've been attending for ten years now and we can count on a high quality performance, excellent food and outstanding service. The reputations built up over more than 30 years is well deserved. And hearing Michael Ryan on the guitar in the pre-show opener is absolutely a treasure not to be missed!

Theater is great. Food is not befitting this super theater. One should do one or the other if one cannot do both well. Food is not much above cafeteria style. Meat is tough. Choices are limited. Desserts are better.

It was a very fun night, the show was cute and we had a great meal. I would highly recommend this for a gift to others (possibly parents, a good friend), loved the ambiance.

We have had season tickets for many years. It's always a treat to come here. Everyone dresses up and the ambiance is first class. We have always enjoyed the food and the performances. Look forward to each and every musical!!!

We have seen about 5 shows at the Candlelight in the past 5 years. Impressive performances including CATS. The food is good. Sometimes there are special shows that do not include the dinner and they cost less. Good place to take out of town company.

We have been going to the Candlelight for years and have never been disappointed. The food and service are excellent, the shows are outstanding and the price is right. With such quality so close at hand, there is no reason to go to LA. I would give the Candlelight 6 stars if I could. If you have never been there,... More

First your table already has your name place card at your seat. They have a dress code, pant suits are acceptable. A little outdated atmosphere but that adds to the old theater charm. I had tri tip with a lovely sauce, very tasty, my friend the mahi-mahi plenty of food. Excellent service. We saw Footloose. EXCELLENT! It was the best... More

Went to see the tribute to the Carpenters on July 21 2016. Great show! Great for couples. There were 4 couples in our group and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The tribute shows are casual and they encourage singing along, dancing in the aisle, etc. If you are a fan of some group or singer and the Candlelight has a tribute... More
