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

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

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