We had lunch here when we first arrived in Waterton. The sandwich's we had were ok, but nothing special. We ordered a side of fries to share since they did not come with the sandwich. The cost of the sandwich was high enough that it should have included a side dish. This place along with most other's in the area... More

We had breakfast here on our last day in Waterton. The pancakes and bacon and eggs were very tasty. They also have wifi service. Ask for the code.

Checked table clothes and decorated with license plates. Comfort foods. Scnitzel was good. Greek salad didn't have olives so how could it be Greek? Pleasant waitress. Busy place since it was less expensive than most of the others.

Nice location thats close to the water. Food was nothing spectacular for the price tag. Our server was quite nice.

Went in, got a table, a menu and was ignored from that point on. No visit from service staff. Watched another table get seated 10 minutes after we arrived and served drinks immediately. We left.

Food was solid, but unremarkable. Service was good, so I suppose you could do worse. Prices weren't bad, which one doesn't necessarily expect in a small mountain town.

We (a couple in our 30's) visited Waterton numerous times this summer as we live only a few hours away. Zum's is by far our favourite restaurant. We've been for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have had a super experience every time. The service is fast and friendly. The food is delicious. The prices are great compared the other restaurants...

We were looking for breakfast but didn't realize they didn't have extended breakfast hours for the long weekend Monday. We had lunch there. It was ok. Burgers and wraps don't come with anything else (ie fries or salad). Wouldn't eat here again.

My wife and I had a rather pedestrian dinner here, nothing special. It is easy to find something you can eat here that is affordable. Decor is basically "license plates from everyplace in the world." Service was good, and the restaurant is easy to walk to (along with everything in this small town). OK in a pinch.
