Very good selection of food. Steaks, Italian, and Mexican. Had the beef tacos with guacamole salad. Chips and salsa were great. Service was very good. Our first time to eat there was 1970. Food has not changed.

The 5 represents having dined at Candlelite for more than 40 years. Great variety, not fine dining for sure but it just tastes great! I almost always get the bean burrito with guacamole (not traditional guac. it's kind of a thick dressing, yumm!) added to...More

Went with some friends who you might call "regulars". They suggested we try the spaghetti for our first meal here. I usually don't order spaghetti at a restaurant because I can make that at home. I'm glad I tried it! Good stuff. Great service. Great...More

This is my 3rd time to the Candlelite Inn. The ambiance is really cool because they have been a staple in Arlington since the 50's with great painted murals and the original decor. But they do need to update the restaurant. Don't expect a fancy...More
