Dined with family of five for lunch. Nice varied menu with reasonable pricing. Server knew menu well but also knew to ask about upgrading selections in a very courteous manner. Service was efficient and timely. All selected food items were well presented, very tasty in plentiful quantity and quality. We were given a choice upon entry of outdoor or indoor... More

Food was outstanding services was average. The hostess was extremely rude when we asked if we could sit somewhere on the patio with some shade. There seems to be a weird service industry vibe in Fernie in general. Where I come from the patron is encouraged to ask for what they need in order to make their experience the best!... More

Great location, but disappointed to receive little to no service and cold food. How do you bring out pizza that is cold? how long was it sitting there? Kids quesadilla loaded with cold melted cheese?

This place is always busy and we decided to go there for my birthday dinner. We started sitting outside but moved inside when it became cold. Inside was too dark to the point that I mentioned it to my family. The food was average. My quinoa salad was good but not remarkable. The chicken was good but the ribs were... More

Good local beer, great salads, tasty sandwiches. Pleasant, personal wait staff. They add gratuity on the bill which I would prefer to do myself.

My husband and I had lunch here and the food was delicious! He had the soup and sandwich and I had the smoked salmon quesadilla, both of which were well prepared. The waitress was friendly and efficient and the meals came out in a timely fashion. The restaurant had a nice ambiance and there was an outdoor area with beautiful... More

We went to The Bridge Bistro on a recommendation and we were not disappointed! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and came in a timely manner. We especially enjoyed the coleslaw and my husband loved the homage Tartar sauce that came with his fish. We will be telling our friends and we hope to come back... More

We can in after the rush at about 9 pm after a long day on the road. No one say us for at least 10 minutes (no one even acknowledge we were there). When we finally got sat and got our order in, it came out fast and tasty. Probably could have used 2 other servers.

Wow, what luck. We asked a local where to eat in Fernie and we were directed to Bridge Bistro. It was probably our best meal in our 8 day vacation throughout Glacier, Waterton and BC. The prices were reasonable, the service was a bit slow but the food was very good. Everyone was happy with their meal. I would highly... More

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.
