First time for City Lights

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

Location was city central, parking available, decor O.K., food very good but especially the Peanut Butter Pie. It was very light and fluffy almost like a souffle. Server was very nice, price was reasonable. We'd go again if we lived nearby and not where we do in CA.

This is Cumberland and the dinner options are limited. We chose this after reviewing the best rated venues on TA and doing some walk bys. We ended up ordering a bottle of Butternut Chardonnay, a shrimp appetizer (these were dry), Maryland crab cakes (these were 5s on a 10 point scale) and prime rib (7 on a 10 point scale)... More

City lights was just what we were looking for after our drive from Ohio, we didn't want fast food or super fancy and not a chain restaurant. It was nice that they didn't have TVs where our table was located. Great glass of wine and my salmon & rice was delectable!

We were in Cumberland, Maryland on a short trip to pick up our granddaughter from Frostburg State University. While there we happened upon "City Lights" restaurant at dinner time, and what a find. Friendly people and good food, with great 'specials'. On our next visit to Cumberland we will be sure to stop by "City Lights".

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
