I have been coming here since I was a child and I still love it. Local theatre with good food. The menu changes based on the play but they have some staple items on there. If you have children, they will especially Love the Christmas plays with Santa. Don't miss it!

The show is fantastic, the food is outstanding (the portions for appetizers are huge- Share!) and the people who run it, Mick/Mindy/John/Staff are some of the best people on the planet. This place is a legacy of integrity, high quality and everything they do is out of love. Get a subscription and go now!!

We had fun here, though I don't remember it all that well. We went for a daytime performance, and it seemed posh and fun. I would recommend it, and I would go back.

If you are anywhere close to this venue, you MUST go to the Candlelight Theatre! Going to the Candlelight Pavilion has become a treasured family tradition. There is something for everyone! The annual Christmas show is always different. It's written by a local, the very talented John LaLonde. (Perhaps you'll luck out and he'll be performing!) First, when you arrive,... More

We visited the Candlelight Pavilion for the first time on Dec 27th, 2013. Going to dinner theaters was a tradition when I was growing up so I'd say we're pretty experienced critics. I can say without reservation that this 1st visit to Candlelight was the best dinner theater experience I've had. First of all, the location is nice and the... More

This is a great way to see the show and ask for a private balcony dinning room it is a nice way for 4 people to have dinner and enjoy the show.

"Full Monty" was a disappointment. This is usually a classy place with mostly good entertainment. This particular show was peppered with expletives (Totally Unnecessary) and over the top suggestive sexual behavior that was not in good taste. A friend of mine and other people at our table we had just met also felt it was not as tastefully done as... More

I went with friends to see "Sweet Charity". I had never seen it so I had nothing to compare it to. But it was delightful. Tracy Pedretti was a charming Charity - almost naïve. The whole cast was outstanding and believable. The dinner was it's usual excellent. I had tritip and it was melt in your mouth. Every performance I've... More

We had a really nice time and the productions are well done. We have seen several shows here and this time I took my daughter and had brunch. Drinks, tip, and dessert are not included so it can get pricey and I am not a fan of eating with random people but it was a nice day.
