City jewel

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!

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

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

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.
