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 are still not exactly cutting edge you can get such dishes as monkfish with fingerling potatoes or blackened Mahi Mahi. My dining companion had the aforementioned monkfish and a lovely piece of tender white fish it was. We both started with silky scallops over fresh corn that had been pan fried with bacon. Yum. I selected the tenderloin over blue cheese mashed potatoes. The pan reduction tasted wine-y and there were caramelized whole mini onions on the side. I think blue cheese will be making a guest appearance the next time I mash a potato. The drink menu had some lovely martinis and a selection of manhattans. The only beer is in the bottle so we opted for a very reasonably priced cava instead. They were out of our first choice for dessert (peach crumble with vanilla ice cream) so we went for the vanilla bean cheesecake and a bourbon bread pudding. They did not disappoint. Ask to be seated on the patio when the weather is fine or go cozy with interior seating in this lovely old house. Service was very attentive but they should use a tray to carry drinks to the table. Warm rolls were adequate but could be kicked up a notch in quality and variety to accompany the chef's creations. We would go back.
