If you are a Fleetwood Mac fan, you will definitely like this performance. if you are not, you will still find the performance entertaining and not a waste of money.

Theater is great. Food is not befitting this super theater. One should do one or the other if one cannot do both well. Food is not much above cafeteria style. Meat is tough. Choices are limited. Desserts are better.

It was a very fun night, the show was cute and we had a great meal. I would highly recommend this for a gift to others (possibly parents, a good friend), loved the ambiance.

We have had season tickets for many years. It's always a treat to come here. Everyone dresses up and the ambiance is first class. We have always enjoyed the food and the performances. Look forward to each and every musical!!!

We have seen about 5 shows at the Candlelight in the past 5 years. Impressive performances including CATS. The food is good. Sometimes there are special shows that do not include the dinner and they cost less. Good place to take out of town company.

We have been going to the Candlelight for years and have never been disappointed. The food and service are excellent, the shows are outstanding and the price is right. With such quality so close at hand, there is no reason to go to LA. I...More

First your table already has your name place card at your seat. They have a dress code, pant suits are acceptable. A little outdated atmosphere but that adds to the old theater charm. I had tri tip with a lovely sauce, very tasty, my friend...More

pant suits, dresses. upper casual is accepted. It's a very nice inside similar to a old fashioned theater. You can view the seating chart and request certain seats. I really liked 204 section. Great view.
