We came here with a group for breakfast. We had a couple people serving us, and they didn't seem to be communicating with each other about who had been helped, and who hadn't, etc. Not a huge deal though, the servers we had were very friendly. The menu had great selection, and the food is pretty good; however, I'm not... More

Ate at Vimy's On Canada Day. Had to ask for a waitress to sit us. Ordered a coffee which was brought lukewarm. The food was sub par. I ordered the one piece fish and chips. The piece of fish was small and the French fries luke warm. The other people in the party had the clubhouse, one with lukewarm fries... More

This is fine dining in Waterton. There is a lengthy menu with a lot of creativity. The wine list is great! Expect higher prices here than in the city, but that is the case with all national parks. This gem is spacious and has good views. The salmon was cooked nicely. The salads are all wonderful. The wait staff are... More

When it comes down to it, there really are not that many places to have a nice sit down dinner in Waterton. This compounded with getting good staff for a very short peak season makes things challenging. Vimy's has always been very solid, never a bad meal, many an average meal and sometimes a really outstanding meal there. They do... More
