We have been going to the Candlelight Dinner Theater for over 30 years and each show is better than the last. We have never been dis-pointed, The Food is Great and the deserts are out-standing. Our Granddaughters love the Candlelight Dinner Theater.

If you are a Fleetwood Mac fan, you will definitely like this performance. if you are not, you will still find the performance entertaining and not a waste of money.

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...More

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.

pant suits, dresses. upper casual is accepted. It's a very nice inside similar to a old fashioned theater. You can view the seating chart and request certain seats. I really liked 204 section. Great view.

Probably a booth which is slightly higher than the floor tables. It depends on the age of the children. Very small/young would have difficulty and possibly not enjoy or be able to sit quietly. On the floor tables you can... More
