Affordable & Quick

Dependable place for a quick & basic lunch. Their burgers are good, if a little conventional, and the food arrived incredibly quickly. Unfortunately the servers we had both times - one a waitress and the other a waiter - seemed inattentive and distracted, and the waitress was even a bit rude... read more

Fun place to eat as you see in the pictures. Family ate breakfast there before heading out to Yellowstone. Pretty empty when we were there, coffee was good ask the kids had fun looking around. Wish they would've opened a little earlier.

We were seated quickly, our server was friendly, the beer was just ok, and the food was average at best. It just seemed very pricey for what we had.

Well we didn't try the fried chicken Zum's claims to be famous for but several couples in our tour group decided this was the place to eat on our free night. Every wall has something to look at and they have a real nice gift shop in the back. You could eat inside or out. The outside had some views... More

Had lunch here. Plenty of choice on the menu. The food was hot and tasty, I had the Steak Sandwich and my wife had the grilled cheese with bacon and the pie for desert was delicious. No complaints and we would eat here again. The prices for Waterton, we thought were quite reasonable. (We have eaten at other places here... More

We went here for a brekky on a morning when it wasn't busy so were served immediately and the food came out quickly. I had the corn beef hash because I was curious as I'd never had it before and my bf had the 'Mountain Man Biggie'. Portion sizes were good, the price not too bad and we had the... More

Resturant is clean and the food is alright. However, breakfast for just my husband and myself was over $40. That is absolutely insane for only two people. There was absolutely nothing about that meal that justified that kind of a price tag. Find another place to stop. There are plenty of other options in and around the park.
