Situated on the Riverside Drive of Clinton, IA, is the Candlelight Inn, our restaurants have been serving the people of Illinois and Iowa for 44 years. Originally started by Bob and Jan, who created the wonderful dish named Chicken George served with Jan’s famous sauce, the inn was taken over and reinvented by their son Matthew in 2000. The new Candlelight Inn includes a bar and grill, steak house and banquet facility.

Our restaurant has a wonderful, homey feel where you can just be yourself. The spacious dining room and bar area are served by courteous and talented servers who will bring you sizzling food straight from the barbeque and mix your drinks just the way you like them. From fresh burgers and sandwiches to great drinks with authentic flavors, Candlelight Inn strives to bring you the best of both worlds.

Our restaurant is a family-friendly place for all people. Sample our coconut shrimp, the “Buffalo Style” Chicken George, our seafood augratin or Jan’s Ceasar Salad and you’ll be asking for more. Also try our Great Combinations such as the Porky George, where we add just the right amount of fall-off-the-bone barbeque ribs to our famous Chicken George.

Candlelight Inn serves hand-cut, slow-cooked prime rib, said to be the best in the Midwest. The prime rib, which comes in three sizes- queen, king and extra special- is finished on the grill and served with freshly sautéed mushroom, onions and peppers. We also serve pork chops, ribeye and beef tenderloin, the most tender steak around, along with many other tasty dishes.

We are proud to also offer banquet facilities which come with the perfect food and drinks to make your social event or conference even more enjoyable. Our event planner will work to make your day extra special while our staff takes care of your guests as if they were our own.
