I am not a foodie by any means. I actually do prison ministry, so I have eaten prison food more than once, but this place was absolutely horrible. The meal was so bad I could not even eat it. Also, I was charged about $7.00 more than the menu stated for my soup and sandwich.

My reaction to this location is how unfriendly the head owner is Mr Geatz. The prices are insane. How does a place stay in business since taking over from his late parents if the owner can't be nice and say hello. The best thing was the food but that was it.

I rated this place in the past, expressing that if you are of color or different from these people here in this town, please run from this place. I visited this place last year and as I entered this restaurant, I was never acknowledged, ignored, given dirty looks. I waited for a few minutes to receive service, the girl behind... More

A disappointing visit. The french fires were the best part of our meals when my wife and i visited for lunch. She ordered the Philly cheese steak sandwich which as average at best. The sandwich just seemed to be quickly thrown together and tossed in the the oven to melt the cheese. I ordered cream of crab soup which tasted... More

Geatz'z food was OK but not something to rave about. We went here looking for a "local" experience and it did seem as if many diners were Cumberlanders and I suppose we just got what Cumberlanders want when they go out ... regular quality crab cake and heavily battered fried oysters. Service was good and they had a few football... More

I usually don't put much stock in small-town family-owned restaurants because they have a limited incentive to innovate, and keep serving the same, cheese-, sauce- or grease-drenched meals year in and year out. But I did have a terrific meal at Geatz's. The beer was good, the food was good, and the atmosphere (the redeeming quality of a small-town restaurant)... More

The French fries are good. The onion soup okay. The waitress was decent. The bar is lacking Vodka. The salad is fine if you like iceberg lettuce. The seafood salad had 2 shrimp in it. Good thing it was fairly cheap.

From the outside, Geatz’s restaurant in Cumberland, Maryland looks like some run down red brick industrial building, or maybe an old Elk’s lodge. People do not go there because of the curb appeal. Inside, Geatz’s shows its family-run origins with cozy tables and booths in a no-nonsense open room that seems to draw a lot of locals, always a good... More

Restaurant was within walking distance of our B&B and was convenient for a casual dinner. We ordered a variety of items and some were better than others. If you don't get too fancy, you should be okay. Definitely popular with locals and while it had a "homey" look and feel, it wasn't especially friendly. Service was okay... no complaints.

We happened in on a Wednesday night and there was a Trivia contest that we joined. Lots of fun and good food too.
