I tried this place for lunch. It was a great atmosphere and we decided to eat outside. The lunch menu offered several selections at decent prices. I had a burger and onion rings and they were both average at best. Two others really enjoyed their taco salads. I would give it another try if in the area.

It is the time of the year to sit outdoors with family and friends and bask in the summer warmth. City Lights is a great place to do that, with it's outdoor dining area on the downtown Cumberland pedestrian mall. The dining area, roped off for the enjoyment of customers, is a good spot for people watching or listening to... More

I highly recommend enjoying a meal outside under their tree canopy on the Baltimore Street Mall. The food is very good and service wonderful. I have never been disappointed in their food so take an hour and go down to the mall for a relaxing meal.

This decent restaurant survives despite its pedestrian only walkway access. It is located on the closed to motor traffic Main Street of this charming old city. The menu is varied, food & service are good. The prices are reasonable, a good value. In clement weather, outside seating is available. Parking is limited-reservations taken.

It was lovely sitting under the trees and enjoying a meal with friends at this restaurant. Thursday night special was one of their delicious burgers and beer for $10. I had the baked Brie with a side salad and it was also very good.

We stopped for drinks and dessert during the bands on a Friday night. Very nice place. The desserts were excellent and the outside patio seating is a real plus.

City Lights is approaching 20 years in its current location and it has truly stood the test of time. The food is consistently good and the service is always excellent. The decor is nothing to write home about but so what. In the warmer months, there is outside dining and that is the real gem. I enjoy going there and... More
