Popular chain restaurants and locally-owned, southern-style restaurants offer something for every taste in the Cumberland area. The Cumberland/Galleria
name stems from the neighborhood's main attraction, the Cumberland Mall, and you can find most of the area's dining establishments, especially the larger chains, at this mall and its surrounding campus. Ray's on the River provides its guests with a waterfront dining experience. Located on the winding Chattahoochee River, this restaurant features fresh seafood and specializes in steaks. For a real treat, visit Ray's all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch for what many consider the best breakfast buffet in the area.
Residents looking for a dining experience that mixes the rustic nature of Georgia with the fine dining of downtown Atlanta can travel to Canoe. This restaurant, also located along the Chattahoochee River, has a full-service bar as well as a fire pit and dining tables outside during the warmer months. Arrive early to get a seat outside, or enjoy the views from indoors thanks to the all-glass exterior of the restaurant. Just make sure to save room for dessert. This restaurant makes a popcorn ice cream sundae that you won't find anywhere else in Georgia. After dinner, be sure to catch a show at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. From sports events to ballets, this modern venue is an Atlanta favorite -- and it will be in your backyard when you rent a Cumberland/Galleria apartment. This premier performance venue not only is the go-to place for Broadway shows, concerts, the opera, and comedy -- it also hosts private events, including wedding receptions and galas.
