Your standard comfort foods but with some seafood as well. Nothing really on the menu for low carb or low calorie diets. Typical burger cafe.

Country fried steak and gravy was good. Small portion but good. Mash potatoes also good. Turnip greens were likely from a can and corn bread not so good. My waitress, Cheyenne did a good job.

We stopped at the Cumberland Restaurant for lunch during a weekend getaway. The service provided by our wonderful waitress was outstanding. However, the food was not very good. The fried chicken was greasy and lacked flavor. The homemade fries were greasy and under-cooked. We usually...More

We had the vegetable beef soup and grilled cheese sandwich. Tastes just like at home. Our waitress was wonderful. Very friendly and courteous - if we lived here it would be a regular eating place for us. A must try
