This not really a review of this establishment more as an alert that these folks are no longer in the restaurant business. They were a stalwart in the business for many years and have recently shut their doors.

I wouldn't recommend going here for dinner, as it has been turned into a funeral home! It was a lovely neighborhood restaurant for many years, but it just didn't keep up with the times, and couldn't make it.

My wife and I have not been fans of this restaurant. We've gone here only once, for an anniversary dinner about 17 years ago. Nevertheless, its sad to see that the Candlelight Inn has closed its doors and will become a funeral home - really, with all the elderly care facilities in our small suburb of Catonsville, an apt change...

Bought a groupon for a birthday party I was really excited to try the restaurant. The food would of been great for folks over 70. Pasta dish we ordered was almost greasy, I got a steak that was covered in gravy, we also ordered the seafood appetizer which came with, two shrimp, two scallops, two crab cakes, two stuffed mushrooms....

Definitely a go-to for couples and groups of older patrons, but still delicious for the (somewhat) younger folks. Seafood always seems fresh, dinners are flavorful, and you can't beat the frequent groupon coupons!

I purchased a groupon, and made an online reservation through open table. When I arrived they took me straight back. We are a couple on a date. There are several room we could have been sat in, we however were sat in a very tiny dining room, with three screaming kids. I have a two year old, I understand kids,... More

I bought a Groupon worth $50, excited to dress up and go to a nicer, charming restaurant. Instead of enjoying a special moment in a romantic settimg, we were not given the opportunity to order off the early dinner menu even though we arrived 30 minutes before the early dinner specials ended and were seated near the corner of a...

This could be a great place as it is in an old house that has been turned into a restaurant. Although my filet mignon was very good, everything else was marginal. The menu could use revamping. The dessert I didn't even eat and who doesn't dessert? This place was kind of disappointing we won't be back.

Every town has one - that restaurant that time forgot. The sort of place where people with teased hair go to have a scotch on the rocks and a good steak. The setting is an old Victorian home, usually. Well, you can have that sort of fare at the Candle Light Inn but they have updated their menu. While they... More
