Waterton townsite is a small town with not too many places to eat besides Subway and a small cafe which I was not impressed with but there are a few nicer places to eat and this would be one of them places. The seating is more pub style on the bottom level with a bar at one end and then... More

We stopped in here for a beer and appetizers after a day of travelling. The beers was cold and the food was good. Our waitress was very pleasant. The only problem we had were the flies - not what we expected inside the restaurant. The restaurant has outdoor seating which is wonderful on a warm day.

We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. Our apologizes for the flies in the restaurant, unfortunately the month of August in Waterton brings an abundance of flies to everywhere in town. We hope you enjoyed your experience with us otherwise, and look forward to your next visit! More

Just your average well-stocked bar in nice light-filled modern space. No bar snacks though and the appetizers uninteresting to us.

Some of our most popular appetizers are the Prosciutto Scallops, House-made Nachos, and the Southwest Spinach and Artichoke Lobster Dip.

Had a nice evening meal at Vimy's in late July. The downstairs was full of people staying at the hotel and it was a bit raucous for my liking. We sat upstairs which much nicer though it was fairly warm due to the bright sunny day we had. The food was good, though nothing too fancy. I'd recommend the bison... More

Just arriving in Waterton, we made the mistake of eating dinner here rather than venturing a few blocks into the downtown. The steak tough and tasteless. The service was poor despite the lack of customers (probably a sign). And the prices, as others have noted, were high. It is not worth the price and there are definitely better places to... More

Staff were nice. Food was ok but expensive as is everything in Waterton. Scenery around restaurant is picturesque. Selection of food was limited. Overall our visit was ok and people were nice. We may visit this restaurant again.

We went to Vimy's because our hotel gave us a 10% off coupon, we were pleasantly surprised. Breakfast was terrific. Coffee was good, eggs really fresh and prepared well. Potatoes perfectly crisp and the rye toast tasted home made. Service was prompt and pleasant

I'm not sure why this restaurant is even as highly rated as it is. The food is at best just okay, but relatively expensive even for Waterton, and our party was served all at different times, which made for a disjointed and somewhat awkward meal. Three people were served first, although one side dish was missing, then the two others... More

We came to Vimy's for dinner during our one-night stay in the Park. So glad we did! We had just finished the Crypt Lake hike, only to find-out our hotel had overbooked us, ultimately sending us to another hotel 20 min away from the park. Everything seemed to just go wrong from there. We were exhausted, needed a shower and... More

Our impression of Vim's isn't very good. Service could be better (like empty glasses) and our food wasn't very tasty. The chicken in the salad was burned and the pulled-pork was tough and had a boring BBQ flavour. There are better places for dinner in Waterton.
