This is one of our favorite places to go for our anniversary or to treat family members for special occasions. The Pavilion is a beautiful old style theater with round tables set up on the floor for dinner. There are also booths and private rooms in the balcony, but we prefer sitting closer to the stage so like the tables.... More

We love Candlelight Pavilion and have been going there for many years. It's our 'to go place' for a wonderful dinner and play/ musical. We have never been disappointed even after all these years. Three of us had the tri tip and one had the mahi mahi. All delicious. The meals are served with warm rolls, salad, risotto and buttered... More

I've been to this dinner theatre perhaps 60-80 times (the first time was about 30 years ago), and I've never been disappointed! We saw "Evita" a few weeks ago. It was so good, we're going again this weekend. For those of you who haven't been before, you're really missing out. Let me walk you through it. When you make your... More

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!!

Two friends and I enjoyed a Christmas get together at the Candlelight Pavilion Dinner Theatre for their annual Christmas performance. We purchased tickets for the terrace which provides a private suite for visiting as well as a great view of the stage. The food was very good and service attentive and courteous. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance, however, do expect... More

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.
