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.

The shows here are always great! I've seen "Carousel", "My Fair Lady", and most recently "The Sound of Music". The casting is great and the quality of shows is amazing! Dinner portion sizes are reasonable and the food is delicious. Service is friendly and pretty efficient. I saw one show from a floor seat, another from a booth in the... More

Sound of Music!! Wow! At a dinner theater? My goodness! We were there for the March 2 matinee. Beautiful theater, great comfortable feeling. The casting was superb to make this show so "right on"! Vocals, talent, sets, acting! We loved it!! From the little girl through the kids and the nuns, to Captain Von Trapp to an amazing Maria! Sarah... More

Went to "A Christmas to Remember" matinee performance today and it was charming, cute, entertaining, appealing to all ages. There were quite a few young children there - and nobody had to take their kid out. I think Candlelight Pavilion is far superior to other dinner-theatres I've experienced. I went with a bus load group and the price was reasonable.... More
