THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Candle Light Inn Restaurant Review

: There’s been enough updating at this Victorian-era country inn to please modern palates, but not so much that the place has lost touch with the gracious values of its 85-plus-years' history as a dining spot. The menu is compact and well balanced, and corrals the essentials --- meat, poultry and seafood --- into a pleasing array. Roasted pork loin is accompanied by bacon, corn, cheddar whipped potatoes and peach compote; grilled salmon is paired with sautéed leeks, wild mushrooms and whipped potatoes; and the tournedos of beef au poivre is napped in brandy mushroom sauce. The special children’s menu includes filet mignon. The dining rooms are soothing in muted cocoa and white. Service is formal without being stiff. This is a civilized experience, just old-fashioned enough to offer an evening’s oasis from workaday cares.
