The Bridge has become consistently better since re-opening after a change in ownership. The food is solid, and the service is always very good. It is a good choice for casual family dining. Lets hope that new renovations improve the comfort and ambience.

We used to go here while visiting Fernie when it was Rip and Richards.....the outside seating is quite nice. They offer some gluten-free options which is greatly appreciated. The service was friendly and inviting and we will go back on our next visit.

We have driven thru Fernie numerous times per year for over 30 years, and have seen the restaurant, but never stopped. This trip we were staying at the Travel Lodge next door. We had arrived late and didn't want to drive anywhere for dinner. We had two choices around us. We chose the Bistro. It was busy with 25 people... More

We were on our way from Glacier to Banff, and wanted to stop and see the Ancient Cottonwoods. Lunch in Fernie was a perfect choice. We had a restaurant picked out, but it was completely empty. We had driven past The Bridge Bistro, and saw a fairly large number of cars in the parking lot. What a great find! We... More

My daughter and I stopped at the Bridge Bistro last night after traveling all day. We live in Seattle, so you know we've had some wonderful salmon dinners. I ordered the salmon special with dill potatoes and really, it was the best salmon I've ever had. The Chef knows his fish. It was cooked perfectly, moist and light with terrific... More

The food was nasty. Had garage door wide open freezing every one out. Over priced for the value of the food.

Great gourmet restaurant. Great ambiance. On the river. Nice patio with umbrellas and flowers. They have fun glass garage doors that open out to the patio. Nice selection of drinks. Got to try a new Canadian cider. Great food. Had the brisket potato skins. Loved them! Fiancé had his new favourite burger of all time. I had a Club Italy.... More

We had the beef brisket and the Korean beef. Very very tasty! The server was friendly and attentive. The patio is wonderful in the summer. Definitely would come back

We stopped in here over the weekend. Nice little place. Our server was hilarious and helpful. Service was a titch slow but it was busy. I ordered a specific drink and they'd run out of one of the juice ingredients (the Hurricane) so they asked if they could improvise - I had no problem with that and the drink was... More

After being seated our server was at tentative and was quickly helping us out with our food and drink choices. It would have been nice if their menu was a bit larger but we had the fish and chips and their special of pan fried salmon. We sat inside which quickly turned into a patio seat as they had large...
