Welcome to the Bridge Bistro. We are an independent, locally owned restaurant, located on the highway and along the Elk River, with the most amazing views overlooking the beautiful Lizard Range. We are open 7 days a week from 11 am until 10 pm serving breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, drinks and desserts. We just had major renovations done, and feel confident that you will appreciate the new atmosphere we have created. Our menu features the regular favorites, such as salads, pizzas, quesadillas and burgers, but we also take pride in preparing other daily specials, vegetarian meals and sharing platters. From 4 pm daily, you can have a taste of our in house prepared rotisserie chicken and ribs. We look forward serving you.

Good food, good service

When we arrived shortly after 5:00 P.M., we had our choice of tables inside or outside, only about 5 or 6 were taken. Within a half an hour, almost every table was full.

We were there on New Years Eve - one of the few restaurants that could squeeze us in without reservations. It was busy, but the food came quick enough. It was decent, but not amazing. The decor inside could use a little more cohesion but was good. I'll give them another shot to see if I can bump them up... More

I have driven by this place for years and last year was turned away by the big crowd at the door. This time we arrived early (6 pm Friday night) and even got a spot on the patio. Summertime in Fernie is a great time for eating on the patio and The Bridge has a wonderful flower laden open deck.... More

This restaurant has recently been renovated on the inside, but could use a facelift on the outside. The service was fast and attentive. We ordered the Italian Clubhouse with fried and the crab cakes salad. Both were very good and the beer was cold.

Wanted a place by the river and this is close. Right beside the bridge coming in from Cranbrook. Went in the evening and sat out on the porch. We made the fabulous walk along the hiking trail along the river from the town (highly recommended) and came upon it. Very pleasantly surprised.

We had a birthday dinner there for our 7 year old during the skiing trip last winter. We enjoyed the place so much that we went there three more times in 2 days. The deserts were so awesome our little one literally licked the plate! :)) The local drinks were so good that I've got myself some new favorite brands... More

Not what I expected, but was pleasantly surprised. The flavours were great, but the heat could be turned down on this dish OR a warning added to the menu.

My parents really enjoyed their meals; my dad had a chicken/rib combo and my mum had a steak with a mushroom sauce. I had ribs and they were really peppery and dry. I had to ask for extra bbq sauce and when it came it was a completely different sauce to the one I already had. My dads ribs weren't... More
