My husband and I took a brother to celebrate his birthday to a Sunday matinee. The tiered seating is excellent; I doubt there would be a bad seat in the theater-- which is not the case in many dinner theaters. There was quite a crowd; nevertheless, the service was excellent (with several of the actors serving meals as well as... More

Just arrived home after a Valentines day evening at the dinner playhouse. The venue is modern, well maintained, and visually impressive. This evening was billed as a special Valentine's day event. The 'special' event, beyond a normal evening at the playhouse was a complimentary glass of champagne or sparkling cider, customer choice. Our meal choices were the only vegetarian offering,... More

We have been coming to the Candlelight Dinner Theatre since it opened. All of the shows have been enjoyable and the food is reasonable. This is a great place to bring your family or even a good date night. We have come with our parents, our kids, and our grandkids. Everyone enjoys it!

We went to the Playhouse on a Friday night for "Forever Plaid". The building is truly wonderful. Beautifully designed, great acoustics. The show was so so. A couple of strong voices, Ben Welch and Stephen Turner. The food was just average, except possibly the Prime Rib. If the food had been better we might be return customers. Everything was obviously... More

We recently moved to the area and tried the theater for lunch today and saw Evita. Everything from the setting, service, food, and performance was really great. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday lunch and afternoon. We will definitely attend future shows!

Good show! It went along with the movie a great deal but threw in its own unique changes to make it its own. They included the "Jitterbug" song and that was fantastic!!! The actors would also use the entire auditorium to put on the show so you were up close to them while in character. A lot of fun and... More

We have season tickets and just have to say - this place is fantastic. The atmosphere is great, the food is NOT buffet and is a good selection. Also, I have to eat gluten free and they offer appetizers, entree and dessert that are gluten free. That is huge for me. Also the actors, singing and service is AWESOME. A... More

We chose to have our company Christmas party at. This wonderful dinner playhouse. The food and service was wonderful and the play was great. We were comfortable as far as temperature, it was very cold out. We love this place!

This was hands down the best show we have seen this season. The acting was outstanding and a big shout out to Toto, who was in her first play. Well done!! The wait staff were attentive and although some had to get ready for the play you didn't feel rushed. I have come to the conclusion because of the quantity... More
