Our party of 3 came here for a late lunch at 2:00 pm. It was 1/3 to 1/2 full of patrons on a Saturday. I'm sure it would be busy with some wait time at mealtimes. Two people had hamburgers which were 'ok'. And I had the 'famous' fried chicken. I found the chicken to be 'ok' - a bit dry and no great spicing in the coating. So we were disappointed in our only meal out in Waterton. The friendly service and interesting decor helped make up for the food.

Always nice when a place is busy and the servers seem happy and friendly. Such was the case at breakfast and dinner. The servings were generous and hot. We also enjoyed the quaint decor and countless old license plates. Not a lot of options in this little tourist town.

We had dinner twice at Zum's and one breakfast. The service was great and friendly. The food was average but plentiful. Probably the best priced larger restaurant in which to have a meal. To use the washroom you need to walk through their gift shop. They had sidewalk seating which is very nice with lots of nice hanging baskets.

This restaurant is attached to a gift shop and also serves as the base for the carriage rides around town. "People watching" while dining on the patio is a fun option if you enjoy that kind of thing. I ordered the pub style battered cod and it was tasty - flavorful and crispy but not too greasy. The waiter was helpful, polite and attentive.

Loved the pie!! Huckleberry with all kinds of other berries and rhubarb. Fantastic! Also,, the waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was upbeat. Nice setting for a cool September dinner.
