Decided to try this place for lunch before we had to board our train. Staff was friendly and the food was delicious. Not over priced by any means. We sat out side on a beautiful day and enjoyed the food with a breeze.

Stopped in for lunch this afternoon, soooo relaxing. We sat outside on the mall under the trees with a slight breeze blowing. Service was slow, but the atmosphere made up for it. Their cream of potato soup was delicious! Very peppery, but I like it that way. Little pricey for Cumberland but worth it.

My son and I ordered our steaks medium...they were definitely medium rare, but after being put back on the grill the steaks were fine. When we walked in, it seemed fancy so I was worried about wearing shorts and a t-shirt, but our attire was fine (the servers wear shorts too). It's a big pricey in my opinion. We're used... More

City Lights is one of my favorite spots in downtown Cumberland. They have outdoor as well as indoor dining. The menu is very nice, and the wait staff always is very attentive. I highly recommend it for a lunch business meeting.

Had the rock fish special not bad. The Cesar salad was different was served with tomatoes and cucumbers strange. Blueberry cobbler for desert was like no other cobbler I have had before it was like a bowl of blueberries in watery blueberry juice with coconut and nuts with no crust not impressed.

One of my favorite places to go for happy hour, lunch or dinner. City Lights' owners Bill and Deb, management and staff have an artistically charming way of making everyone feel welcome and then follow up with personable service, great drinks, elegant food and a showcase of art on the walls. I was introduced to Stoli Citron here, and my... More

Visited based on reviews and the alfresco dining. Service was excellent and the setting is beautiful. The food was very good and the fries were not greasy at all. Will definitely return! (A nice motorcycle destination from central PA)

This restaurant has a lovely outdoor dining area on the stone paved treed town mall! The Wild Flower Honey Baked Brie appetizer was out of this world! It's such a lovely setting to relax and enjoy an ice cold martini and nice meal! I had the prime rib for dinner and it was cooked to perfection! They also have a... More
