Nice location next to the Elk River - with a lovely deck - but we sat inside because it looked like rain (and did!). Pleasant server and service. I enjoyed my Spana (veggie) quesadilla although it lacked seasoning and my wife had delicious fish and chips but substituted salad for fries - her salad was large, tasty, nicely dressed. Her... More

Always one of the best view decks in summer. Recommend the crab cake salad - light fresh dressing. Friend had vege burger - says it was good.

Not a bad meal but nothing special. It is a tourist town and choices are slim so its not terrible. Food quality was good, quantity was fair and the price was just a tad high. Wouldn't make it a destination but I would go back.

Stopped for lunch and although our food was good; we were dismayed to see a PST charge as well as the GST charge on our receipt. I have checked with other restaurants and they should not be charging PST on their lunches. As well, having the tip option starting at 18% feels a little over the top. As far as... More

Dear visitor! I have tried to connect with you over the phone, but unsuccessful. I also sent you a message but have not heard back. Just wanted to clarify the PST charge. Most likely did you have an alcoholic beverage with your meal, and therefor you where charged Liquor tax, which is paid together with any PST collected, and as... More

Server did not care one bit about our enjoyment at this establishment. Food was pretty average. The steak special served medium was so small and over cooked that it was not even worth eating. Fish and chip were decent.

Went there for lunch. I ordered a salad and it was so sloppy with dressing that I was unable to eat it. My wife had a chicken quesadilla and she, too, was unable to eat it. The waitress was, however, very apologetic and did not charge us for our meals. Three years ago, as Rippin Richard, it was a great... More

Our first time in Fernie, and we loved it! We stopped at The Bridge for lunch, and left happy customers. Great view, great food and the staff was wonderfully pleasant.

Ambiance excellent. Had quesadea filled with yummy salmon, cheese, spinach and more. My dining campanions enjoyed their meals ( steak,) very much. My husband said to leave off the mushroom sauce on the steak ( he's not a mushroom fan) and the chef prepared him TWO extra sauces instead. Delicious.

It was a pleasant place on a hot day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a tasty quinoa salad I would recommend.

We have been coming to Fernie for more than 10 years now and always stop at the Bridge for at least one meal if not more. Guy was our server on this latest trip and he was super - very attentive, spoke with us about our travels, and he offered some new insights into the goings on in Fernie. This... More
