Hours: Lunch, Dinner (Daily)
This sleek sports bar with dark wood paneling, large scale booths, and a separate bourbon tasting bar is the perfect hideaway on the downtown peninsula to drink a good cocktail or a craft beer and nosh on smoked chicken wings with Alabama white sauce. The delectable smoked meats at Cumberland — pork or chicken — have the hint of hickory and the right balance of juicy tenderness with crispy end-pieces scorched by the fire. In addition to the meat, save room for the decadent loaded fries topped with pulled chicken or pork, smoked cheddar cheese, bacon, white barbecue sauce, and jalapenos, or keep it kosher with the barbecue duck fat fries that include a large basket of perfectly crisped fries in a sweet and salty barbecue seasoning, no ketchup needed. Don’t miss the special of the day — as it’s usually one of the best items on the menu — and their highly regarded ribs, showcased on the weekends, are worth the trip. —Katherine Connor (Dish, Winter 2019)
House smoked meats and generous cheese trays pair well with a generous selection of local beers on tap.
