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 Sunday to Tuesday from 11 am until 9 pm and Wednesday to Saturday 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 pizza, quesadilla and burger, but we also take pride in preparing more different meals, such as bison short ribs, elk meat balls, vegetarian risottos. The chef prepares many different specials and we have a great dessert maker in our kitchen staff line up. We look forward serving you.

Totally not what we expected from the outside!

Wow, this place was very nicely decorated. Hopefully the exterior will be next ;) We came for the gluten-free brownie which was advertised on their online menu, but we were told they haven't updated that menu in years. She went through all of my options on the menu (which were plentiful), but it's... read more

Lovely open & bright eating area, with outside deck area as well. Small but interesting menu, reasonable prices. Comfy atmosphere to hang out with friends or work on your laptop over a tasty coffee.

I may have got it'sd previous name wrong - if so , I apologise. I think it is better than then but not much. A bit warmer - nice welcome from the servers, good choice of beers, decent menu. But I don't see eye to eye with the chef. His idea of what sauces go with what meat isn't the... More

Decided to give the Bridge Bistro another try this year. We were underwhelmed last year as I found the food bland, the service slow and the prices out of touch with the offerings. Well things have changed drastically. Our server was friendly, efficient and well acquainted with the menu and was able to offer suggestions which proved to be accurate.... More

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 Tuna Tacos that I ordered had two...

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!
