Burger, fries, and fried chicken were edible but not good. I ended up eating another meal right after not eating most of this one. The servers were fantastic and friendly but the food was not good. Go to Trappers instead. :)

Zums is one of my “Go To” restaurants while in Waterton. The food is always good! Excellent choices of Vegan and non Vegan dishes to suit all. They offer a decent selection of brews and even a few vegan drinks which I have enjoyed !...More

One of only a few restaurants in the town, it offers the best value around. Family, hiker and camper friendly atmosphere. Good assortment of fresh, home cooked food, great service in a casual setting. Chile, fried chicken and the fresh shakes were well received.

Good food, good service, ok prices, nice desserts. There is some outdoor seating, too, and if you've a hankering for fried chicken, this is it.

After a long day of traveling, we stopped in Zum,s just for desert. We had great chocolate cake and a piece of strawberry/rhubarb pie. The coffee was pretty good too. The service was good, and everything was reasonably priced.
