Food and service are excellent and good value for the money. Not cheap but worthwhile. A close walk from most hotels. Good food selection.

We had dinner twice here. The food was very good on both occasions if too much for us. The mountain views in the evening were spectacular but there was little atmosphere as it was quite empty. The staff were efficient but cool.

Had dinner and breakfast here. Both meals were mediocre. Nice selection of benedicts unfortunately mine was cold. Wellington pastry was doughy. Gordon Ramsay wouldn't be impressed, neither was I.

Had a fairly decent and inexpensive breakfast. Service was quick and pleasant. Didn't try it in the evening for dinner or the lounge.

Stopped for a drink in the mid afternoon, basically a lobby lounge as the upstairs wasn't yet open. Service was good, very friendly staff. Chairs and tables are restaurant more than lounge so not real comfortable but maybe better upstairs.

We stopped in here after a long day of hiking and were looking for a good large meal for two experienced hikers. We both ordered the Bison Burgers and splurged on the fries to make them a poutine. Best decision of the day!! Our hostess, Debbie, greeted us and seated us upstairs ( at our request - due to reading... More

If you are in Waterton for a couple days, Vimy's is a good meal at a good price. Debbie, the manager, is very friendly and a wonderful host. While Vimy's is not on the main street, nothing is too far away to walk to in Waterton townsite and it is well worth finding.

What a beautiful place to enhance your vacation experience. Wonderful ambiance, we ate outside on the patio on a beautiful night. The food was amazing, which lead to some overeating! :) MMM!....

It was my first time visiting Waterton and it was absolutely beautiful. We came across Vimy's Lounge and made it our home base as we found the food fresh and service awesome! We appreciated Debbie's suggestions for some dishes that I might not of tried - everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. I would recommend trying the elk balls... More

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
