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

We went here for breakfast as it looked like a popular spot. We were disappointed; the eggs were cold, hash browns over cooked and food was bland. It was over $50 for 3 people to have breakfast. Definitely on the not to return to list.

We were down for a long weekend and came across this place for lunch initially, had great service and food. The choices of food we're very varied and presented well, so much so we went back for an evening meal the next day. Very easy atmosphere, casual wear and very welcoming. You go through one part of the gift shop... More

Ok staff and place but food was seriously nothing special if not bad to be honest. But if you're hungry it does the job.

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
