“Great food, great views, and great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were passing through Clinton along the river and found The Candlelight Inn. It has great views of the river and the boats. The servers and staff were very friendly. We asked to sit along the windows to see the Mississippi and they were able to accommodate us. The food was good and prices were reasonable. The portions were generous. We didn't wait long for our food. The food was fresh and hot. We would definitely go back the next time we are in the area.

“Our Anniversay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Chicken George & Prime Rib Combo. Rib Eye. French Onion Soup. Added grilled veggies like onions mushroom and sweet red peppers. Food was good tender and flavorfull. Went around 4pm. On Sat. The 27th. Was sat by veiw of the Mississippi. Beautiful view. Good service. Not over the top prices. With tip around 50 bucks. Also had the choc. Cake. Liked everything but the cake. Just a matter of taste. Cake was very heavy and dense. Frosting very rich and thick. Just not my kind of yum. Nice eve. Would go back. Finished eve with show boat theather. Right next door. Few strides away.

“Right on the Mississippi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The views of the river are great the food was great and our server was excellent. Prices were about right for the drinks and food and the overall experience. They have a large outdoor deck for dining but we sat inside.

“Great food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Candlelight Inn was suggested by the staff at the hotel we were staying. iordered the Chicken George Parmesian. It was very good. We were told the they were famous for the Chicken George. We had a great meal for a decent price. The location was pretty overlooking the Mississippi River. We were pleased to find out thay there is a Candlelight Inn in Peoria, IL also.

“Beautiful view of the Mississippi River in a relaxed dining setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My husband and I were visiting family in Iowa and preparing for a very busy week. This was our only night to relax and enjoy a meal out before meeting up with family the next day and we are very glad that we chose the Candlelight Inn. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the Mississippi River and it was absolutely beautiful. The service was at a nice pace. We didn't feel rushed to make a decision or to dine but it was efficient enough that we didn't feel neglected. The food was absolutely delicious and a good representation of the Midwest. The catfish was wonderful and the onion rings to die for! Would highly recommend this restaurant!
