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 very well. Would love to return sometime!

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! Service was good, with a friendly waitress.

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 the same-day-picked corn on the cob we had in some otherwise godforsaken rathole in southwestern Virginia, but that's another story.) The food was creatively imagined and perfectly prepared. The staff were knowledgable, attentive and charming. The wine list was not lengthy, but was well-chosen and suited the food well. I had the pork tenderloin which was (mirabile dictu) not overdone. The accompanying mustard sauce was assertive enough to be interesting but not so overpowering as to obscure the excellent meat. My wife had the Greek salad and a crab cake, both of which were exemplary. The management here clearly cares - they fly in artisanal cheeses from Wisconsin; we had three of them with a delicious port for desert. Please eat here whenever you can - we need places and people like this.

We sat outside to eat. Lovely weather. I had the handbreaded chicken breast with spicy mayo, pickle and coleslaw. Delicious! Would go again!

The weather was nice enough in Cumberland to sit outside at City Lights. After a long day at work, my coworkers and I were looking for a place with good food and a pleasant atmosphere. City Lights had both. It's a lovely setting outside in the courtyard area. The food was good and everyone enjoyed their meal. This is not fine dining but it is a good casual restaurant with a unique twist. They offer their lunch menu at dinner on certain nights of the week. That was the best part. Prices were reasonable and there was a steady stream of customers.
