My wife and I stopped by Cumberland on our way through town by chance. We were hungry and the atmosphere and the fact that the street is permanently closed off from auto's created a certain curiosity. It was a sunny late afternoon in early Fall...More

Thank you for the business and the kind words. We will pass this lovely review on to Dayna. We are heartbroken that the city has voters to open the street up to one lane traffic. They claim it will not affect our outdoor dining. When...More

Found this on trip advisor -- we had a nice, quiet lunch. Portabello Reuban was very nice as was the cole slaw that came with it. Peanut Butter Pie was awesome!! Very good food.

We had dinner here at the end of riding the Great Allegheny Passage. The food was excellent, if a bit pricey. I had the shrimp and spinach over pasta and enjoyed it very much. Service was very friendly, but the staff seemed overworked.

I have not eaten anything on the menu here that wasn't delicious. They have a wine and cheese Wednesday and Beer and Burger Thursday, which is a fun twist on the regular menu. They offer outside seating when feasible. Great little bar area and plenty...More

Atmosphere and food is very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. One of the owners are always on premises so things run smoothly. If the weather is right evening outside dinning is pleasant and fun in downtown Cumberland.

In walking distance from the Fairfield Inn, this restaurant is located on a pedestrian only area in the middle of downtown Cumberland. We sat outside under some trees and were treated like gold. Drinks were good, food delicious, and had a wonderful evening out. Highly...More

There is a door at the rear, which is next to a parking lot, and it is at ground level, so no steps.
