Lovely ambiance and atmosphere, probably the nicest restaurant I have been to in Fernie in terms of looks. But the service was incredibly slow for a relatively empty restaurant (took>20 mins just for our drink orders to be taken) and then when our meals were served about an hour later, the Ahi... read more

Stopped twice once on our way to Kimberley once on the way back home. Had gluten free bun with chicken and it was delicious. Have no complaints. Good service.

Good place if you need to seat a party of six fast, however there are better places to eat in Fernie. We ate here because we had no choice, every-other place was either packed to the gills or closed. The menu was fairly plain, had your average meals laid out, but with a high price tag. The restaurant itself is... More

We were turned off this place after the first couple times we came a few years ago, but decided to give it another go this past summer and were very pleasantly surprised, and have been back four times!! The food and service have really stepped up their game, and now that they've completely renovated the space, it's a complete package.... More

Comfy intimate lighting, good cocktails, friendly service and delicious comfort food. Perfect after a long cold day.

What a great new look and a new exciting menu. Had a great lunch and I look forward to coming back for dinner. Really like to try the Salmon and the pizza. Something for everyone in my family. Friendly staff and good value! See you in Fernie!

We had the schnitzel and the tempura fish and chips. The schnitzel was edible but ordinary. The tempura fish and chips came out cold in the middle and the tempura batter was not tempura and had an odd and unpleasant taste. Our server was great and replaced the fish and chips, but the replacement was also cold in the middle.... More

Amazing food. Amazing service, lovely staff. Would recommend the bison short ribs, delicious! The place looks fantastic after the renovations, such a nice atmosphere, love the lighting especially. Can't wait for our next dinner there to try out the new menu items.

We went in for a family dinner and were underwhelmed by the experience. The room looks great post-reno; but the service was slow and poor while the food shows potential if they get the service issues are sorted out. The appetizer never showed up, meals didn't all show up at the same time and none of them hit the table... More

We went back to this restaurant after we said we would not return again, after my husband received a gift certificate he had received from another establishment. I would just like to say this particular business definitely deserved a second chance, I am very grateful for the gift certificate as we will be regulars to this restaurant. When we went... More
