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

When you are driving through Fernie and are too lazy to go downtown, stop at the Bridge. They are a good average experience. Excited for the new renovations and hopefully improvements. Will be worth one try once they re-open.

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.

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
