Dissappointing food...Good service

Non of our meals tasted very good...tough, overcooked etc. Not sure how it compares to other restaurants in this type of location.

This place has very attentive staff and wonderful old world fried chicken. We weren't expecting much in this touristy but scenic town. But the fried chicken is a winner and the service is fast. The seating outside is a plus in one of the most scenic spots in the North American continent.

We went off-season, and there weren't that many choices around. The breakfast was pretty average, but it filled the hole.

We had a tasty and filling American Breakfast at ZUMs. Plenty of coffee and well cooked meal. There is a shop attached to the cafe which was quite interesting.

This is a standard restaurant with fairly large portions of good food...the geek pita I had was great and my husband had a burger with fries. All good for a mom and pop restaurant. Would go there again next time we go.

Been here a fee times and always disappoints. It is definitely overpriced, buffalo burger is pretty good though. Actually saw management swear at another patron...don't know what it was about, but not something that should happen.

Staying in Waterton Park you have limited options for dinner especially in late September and this looked OK as a not too expensive option (compared to Bayshores Chophouse) but was definitely a mistake as the food was average quality but the price was still quite high. Would recommend spending a few extra dollars and going over the road!

We had dinner here our first night in Waterton...the portions were large so my husband and I shared an entree and a salad. Food was good and our server was pleasant and helpful. We came back the next morning for breakfast. There were lots to choose from on the menu and we both enjoyed our meal. The decor of Zum's... More

We had two dinners at Zum's and liked them. Especially the steak was excellent and not expensive. The patio on the street was a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the food. Service was excellent.

We came here for the "famous" fried chicken and it proved to be dry and tasteless. So was the pasta. The atmosphere is very busy, noisy and not conducive to good conversation.
