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.

Good Food

We stopped here for brunch on our recent trip. Very modern interior with a more rustic exterior. Food was very good. A little on the pricier side but i thought it was worth it.

We had dinner after an intensive ski day and the experience was marvellous. Outstanding menu selections ...items you don't even find in large cities, very good beverage list, great service and the food served makes this spot the best restaurant in Fernie at a reasonable price.

My go to lunch spot in Fernie! Have seen many reincarnations of this spot in the last 40 years! This is my favourite. Love to check out the weekly specials. They don't waste food. Just a nice welcoming place to be. I'll be there on Monday. See you there!

We called in for a late breakfast on a Saturday morning, arriving just before 11am. The place was dark and deserted since they don't open until 11am, but they saw us coming and opened up being kind enough to let us in anyway. Our breakfasts were very good, especially the eggs which are organic and the coffee was good too,... More

After trying a couple of different restaurants in Fernie this one was an excellent surprise. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. The decor is industrial chic with a cozy feel. The service was as terrific as the food. We tried the fish and chips which were full of flavour and low on the greasy scale.... More

We stopped for lunch and a cup of coffee at The Bridge Bistro. The soup of the day was excellent. My husband enjoyed the Quinoa Salad. The coffee was the best we'd had in days. We were seated at a booth that was very comfortable. The decor was a really nice surprise as the exterior is a bit unassuming. Our... More

Hadn't been to Fernie in years and stopped for a quick lunch. Breakfast served until 1 pm so that was an easy call. Food was really good, in fact, my breakfast came with some pomegranate! I would give five stars for food, but my final overall has to be four as our server was slow and seemed somewhat disinterested...

Great place for breakfast or lunch. We had a family brunch here and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was prompt and friendly and its reasonably priced. The portion sizes are generous and the plates are nicely presented. Can't go wrong here!
