Friendly people and good food, with great 'specials'. On our next visit to Cumberland we will be sure... read more

Had lunch with a friend. I had prime rib panini that was ok. Sides not included for $11. Friend (gluten free diner) had maryland crab soup and grilled chicken salad. Bill was $30. Service was great. Low lighting. White tablecloths and napkins. Overall, more expensive than I would have expected but I was just driving through and am not familiar... More

We visited this establishment after walking around the outside mall on Baltimore Avenue. Only other restaurant was an Italian place that did not open until after 5:00. We walked into City Lights and were the only party there. It was decorated very nicely for the holiday. The menu is not very extensive but the Shrimp and Crab Cheese Dip was... More

the City Lights was within walking distance of the Ramada Inn in scenic downtown Cumberland. They had a nice menu to choose from and the quality of the food and service were excellent.

This restaurant is on the downtown Cumberland pedestrian mall, it has nice outdoor seating and cozy indoor dining too. The filet mignon was outstanding and worth the price.

Very impressed. steaks were cooked perfect and seasoning was great. The best home made blue cheese dressing I have had. I think the price was very reasonable. 2 salads, 2 steak dinners, cheese tray, 2 glasses of wine and 2 bottles of beer for 120 dollars. Staff very nice.

Disappointed that it cost $42 for myself and 2 children to eat there. I asked about a children's menu and the waitress named the items but not the prices. My one child had grilled cheese And I asked if fries came with and she says yes. My other child got buttered pasta. Well the pasta was just regular spaghetti ridiculously... More

Small little restaurant downtown Cumberland. We stopped in for lunch and sat outside under nice canopy of trees. The food was really fresh and tasty, and the service was great for being so busy!

What a nice surprise. We met some friends and decided to eat at City Lights. We sat outside in a very comfortable courtyard. Both my wife and the salmon special with encrusted pistachios. The fish was excellent and cooked to perfection. The wait staff was very attentive. Will definitely be going back to City Lights!
