The Northern is a bar with a decent menu. People who expect more and kidding themselves. You are not in a high end restaurant. The venue puts on a great deal of excellent music events, and they are usually open pretty consistent hours. If you want more food choices, there are some really good restaurants downtown Fernie. For a fun... More

My experiences here have been okay. Both times I have gone have been for lunch. I have found the service to be quite slow, but otherwise the food is good and there are plenty of seats available. I would go back again.

The northern was really fun! It was expensive to drink there, but it had a good crowd of party goers. We watched a few debauchery's. There was a nice dance floor in the back.

Had lunch here over the long weekend. Took a LONG time to get served and get our food. Food was average. Luckily the weather was nice and we were sat out on the patio..

Staying in Fernie and we went out for dinner and Northern was our stop. Place was quiet and they were setting up for dinner and the late shift so we had our pick of seats. Our server was nice and informative when we asked a couple of questions. Their signature burger "The Northern" wasn't anything special but the Ponchos were... More

We wanted to eat elsewhere but they were full, had a waiting list, and we had a time constraint, so we walked down the street to Northern. It has a nice vibe, the servers were friendly and there were people eating there; we thought we'd go in. We were promptly greeted and asked for our drink order. I had the... More

Very comfortable, nicely decorated pub, with friendly servers. But the food we ordered (Thai-style salad, beet with goat cheese salad) were not seasoned very well - perhaps people in the town of Fernie don't eat salt!?! Tasty Fernie beers though!

Have eaten here a couple of times and found the wings and burgers to be quite good, everything else seems somewhat plain. The place is small and can get quite crowded. Service was good.

Was warned before coming here, but thought we would give it a try anyway. Worst meal ever. Can I just say one thing, it's not necessary to dump salt all over a meal for seasoning. My steak was so incredibly salty I could barely eat it. The fries were none the better. My partner didn't finish his meal due to... More
