Both our lunch choices were fresh and very flavorful. Even the mac & cheese was very tasty. The coffee had been sitting too long on the burner and was acidic.

We recently took our leadership to City Lights for lunch as in a group we all had a varierty of dishes. One dish out of 10 was not quite right but they quickly fixed the issue. Everyone ate all of their meal. Several of us had soup and appetizers as well. Their corn chips and salsa was delicious. I must... More

City Lights in Downtown Cumberland, MD is one of my favorite places to go for lunch. They have some of the best waitresses around! I always have great & friendly service. Good food, too. If you're lucky enough to be there on a day they have blackberry cobbler, get it. I like, too, that they support the arts and every... More

Had dinner on a Saturday night, had martinis in the bar downstairs, nice cozy bar. Dinner was steak, salad and veggies. Nicest restaurant in town, we felt. No Grey Goose but had Ketel One. Great service.

My husband and I both had a cup of crab soup. I really liked it and my husband was not as enthusiastic about it. I had a portobello salad with very fresh greens that was perfect. My husband had a white fish sandwich which he enjoyed. We ended our meal with a blackberry cobbler that we shared. The atmosphere was... More

Extensive wine list, paired with selectable cheese plates with a vast array of selections. Dinner is nicely done with fresh ingredients and presented very well. Very reasonable pricing. Right downtown on the pedestrian mall. A great relaxed dinner spot.

I was in Cumberland and wanting lunch. I walked by and this looked good, plus the reviews were reasonable. I had simple stuff - soup and a burger. I specifically asked for the burger medium, and it came out what I would describe as medium rare. They claimed that was "their" medium. I suppose it wasn't a real problem, but... More

We rode the evening steam train and it rain late. City Lights was on the walk back to our hotel. We called from the station and the put us on the wait list. Nice size house salad and my husband had the Maryland Crab soup which was very good but very peppery. We both had Ribeye Steaks that were cooked... More

Cumberland md is a quiet place with some lovely houses and churches. City light is located in a traffic free zone, there are only a few shops but the little restaurant is worth to visit this part of cumberland. Reasonable pricing and good lunchmenue. The food was OK, not perfect (soup to salty), but the location makes up for it!... More

I am difficult to please and almost impossible to impress; the dinner we had here was superb. We were staying in Cumberland only because it was a convenient stop on the way to somewhere else and knew nothing about local restaurants. We found this place by accident and it was the culinary highlight of the whole trip (well, other than... More
