Pretty good restaurant. The "world famous chicken" was not much. Need someone from the South to help them fry chicken.

Basic restaurant. Breakfast was ok. Waitress got the order wrong. Don't be fooled by the fried chicken special, overpriced.

Zum's stood out because the outdoor seating was nice and the food, while comparable to other restaurants in town, was about 25-30% less expensive. Am looking at the CC statement for the trip: other dinners for 4 ranged from C$115-135; Zum's was in the C$75-85 range.

We stopped here for dinner one night and we both had the chicken with Greek salad. It was excellent. The service was outstanding and quick. We saw people eating chili and we went back next day for lunch it was also outstanding They do not have unsweetened iced tea is my only complaint

Neat little eatery with a gift shop in the back. We'd heard about the chicken so I had to try it. I wasn't disappointed. Awesome! Ron had the fish and chips and said they were great too! All around neat atmosphere, awesome wait staff and great food. four thumbs up from us!

Stopped in for dinner and ordered the baby back ribs. Very tasting and came with a Greek salad, baked beans, cole slaw and mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious, hot and fresh. Our sever was friendly and attentive. Simple interior. But clean and neat. Prices in line with National Park expectations. In other words not cheap but not outrageous. Lots of... More

Our lodge didn't serve breakfast so we walked here. My friend and I split the corned beef hash breakfast and a fruit plate. Corned beef hash was best I've ever had. Restaurant recipe. Fruit plate was fresh and surprisingly large.

The food and staff were just excellent. The hamburger was huge and cooked perfect. Reuben sandwich was great and the even had ice tea that wasn't that sickening sweet tea we are so often offered here. I was pleasantly surprised because a place like Waterton can be a tourist trap without much emphasis on quality and service. I highly recommend... More

We walked into Zum's because we parked right across the street when visiting Waterton. We were looking for food. It was the closest restaurant. We had a good experience. Waitress was super friendly. We liked her. We ordered ordinary food: two hamburgers and one chicken salad. Food was good. It is about the same level as you will get from... More

Fun atmosphere/decor. The menu had a good selection of typical bar fare but enjoyable. Prices were moderate.
