Downtown on main, across from the central parks, this place has good food at a reasonable price. Good for kids, family and friends. A varied menu give lots of choices. They claim to have world famous fried chicken. NOT. Service was good and decor was interesting. Check out the emporium attached directly off the Resturant.

This is a quaint style eatery. Service was great, food delicious. We had the "world famous chicken" and the wild berry price.

We had lunch here while on a tour of the Canadian Rockies. I had a hamburger and the wife had wings. Service was very good and the food was tasty. Eating out in Waterton is not cheap and this is a good place if you do not want to spend an arm and leg for eats. Reasonably priced and the... More

We both had chicken, one fried the other grilled. Both were delicious. We had good service from a friendly and helpful staff. Nice size portions so come hungry. Reservations are recommended.

We had soups and chicken salad, all very nice and fresh. The service though was pretty average, with the waitress displaying a fairly nonchalent attitude. Prices were reasonable, but not particularly cheap. Would recommend, as long as you're not expecting high levels of service Given this eatery is inside a shop, the ambience is a little different to what one... More

Very average meal unfortunately. The service was great- but all 5 of our lunches were bland and average. Waterton is such a quaint and lovely little town with only a few dining options. We had high hopes for Zum's but it was very average.

Had a quick meal here before our drive home, and after our Crypt Lake hike. Food was good, fast, and the place had a nice atmosphere. Wifi and cell service inside was awful, however.

We usually dine at Zum's whenever we are in Waterton for the day. We enjoy the food, friendly staff & all the memorabilia. Our experience on Friday July 8th was disappointing, our unfriendly waitress made us feel as if we were bothering her just to be there. We both had the fried chicken dinner & it was great as usual.... More
