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 7 days a week from 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 salads, pizzas, quesadillas and burgers, but we also take pride in preparing other daily specials, vegetarian meals and sharing platters. From 4 pm daily, you can have a taste of our in house prepared rotisserie chicken and ribs. We look forward serving you.

Pleasantly surprised

Another little surprise in Fernie, really fresh food. Ambiance is a little weird with black chandeliers and odd decor, but the food was pretty good. Cute patio on the river.

We have been driving through Fernie for years and I have always wanted to stop at this restaurant. It always seems busy and has a great location. We finally got to stop today and it was truly was worth it. The kids menu has a good selection and the restaurant is kid friendly. They have a good selection of local... More

We sat on the patio. I've got to say, this restaurant should have a better standing on Trip Advisor. We had the vegetarian pizza with their roasted chicken added to it - great meal. Our server was quite pleasant. Again, I'd rate it in the top 10 in Fernie. I'm going again.

Family of four went late on a Friday evening. While the patio was still busy the restaurant was already clearing out. We waited a very long time and watched people come in after us and get served before us. Server kept telling us kitchen was backed up and did bring us a small plate of bread to hold us over....

Hot summer day with a pretty good patio. Parking isn't great but service was good. Food was also very good but a bit pricey but that is true to a lot of Fernie. Enjoyed my meal.

Beautiful little restaurant and amazing food and service. Glad we stopped in for a quick lunch while passing through. The Korean BBQ wrap was amazing, as well as the summer potato salad with shrimp and pork skewers. The deck out back had beautiful flowers and is right beside a nice little creek. Highly recommended!

We had dinner at the Bridge Bistro while on a business trip in Fernie. I have no complaints at all; our waitress was extremely friendly, the drinks were cold, the patio was beautiful. Our food arrived quickly, not only did they cooked my steak perfectly but it was a really good cut. Will definitely come back.

Stopped on our way through Fernie. Refreshing menu of interesting selections. Loved the crab cakes and chili chicken salad! Friendly service and back on the road in an hour. Nice patio atmosphere.

The Bridge Bistro has had a few names over the years but this iteration has some of the best food and service yet. The patio is the place to be on a hot summer's eve as it is next to the river and generally has a nice breeze. We had an excellent crab cake salad with my only complaint being... More
