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!

My sister and I had a lovely dinner here on the outdoor patio. It's a really charming dining space, and the food was fresh and very tasty. I had the crabcake salad and would recommend it highly. A few more vegetarian options would have been welcome, but that's my only reservation.

Had dinner here while in Cumberland for the weekend. They have tables outside, which were perfect since it was really nice & sunny, but there was a nice breeze being between the tall buildings. The hostess and waitress were both very helpful and friendly. The dishes were ordered were delicious. My friend got the Prime Rib and I got the... More

My husband and I recently went here for lunch for the first time. He ordered the turkey & apple wrap with slaw, I ordered the cheeseburger with mac and cheese. The side choices for sandwiches were slaw, fruit, applesauce, chips and salsa, or mac & cheese. I asked the server specifically if the chips and salsa were homemade. She said... More

We sent an email and invited CatMom (Sheri Nicol) to the restaurant to see how we make the bechamel sauce for our macaroni & cheese. To date she has not responded to our invitation. We wish she would see that we did not LIE as she has claimed. Sheri is welcome into our kitchen anytime to see how we prepare... More

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
