The food was average. The coleslaw was oily, flavorless and looked old. My wife enjoyed her Korean BBQ with fresh feta cheese on pita bread. (Yep, a bit eclectic.) You can find reasonably priced food on the menu. Fries were good. The view from the deck is incredible -- the river and the mountains at the same time. Service was... More

We stopped by twice during our stay in Fernie, once for lunch and once for supper. The fish and chips were a big hit with the crunchy coating with black sesame seeds in it. I had the wild boar linguini special and it was excellent. The service was very attentive, you can't go wrong with this place.

We were here for supper on a Sunday evening. Starter was chips and dips which includes colored tortilla chips with salsa, guacamole and a yellow hummus. Very tasty nibbles while we waited for our main course. We both had the roast chicken dinner which was good too.

Gave this place another try and our group of 6 was very disappointed in the food. Can't pinpoint exactly what or why but we all said we'd never go back. Food was pricey and there was not much flavor. I don't like to give bad reviews, but if you're in fernie, I'd go elsewhere, like the golf course, their food... More

This restaurant has a very nice large patio overlooking the elk river. Very nice view and atmosphere. Every time we drove by the place seemed busy so we decided to stop in on our last day in fernie. The prices are very comparable to a boston pizza and found the food to be better too. The service was good and... More

Our party enjoyed burgers and a veggie quesadilla . . . burgers were excellent, made in-house and were well garnished and included great french fries! Quesadilla review . . .very good, well fired, and large - could easily be a shared item. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

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.
