Had fish and chips at the bridge bistro. Tasty and pepper batter on the fish, good sized proper chip ( not shoestring French fries). Good value, very tasty, not greasy or soggy. I had several people in Fernie recommend it and I can see why....More

Had a great experience and everything tasted yummy where my picky eater cleaned up of the plate :) tried the potato skins with pork, chicken pot pie, clam chowder and they were all a hit. We also tried falafel wrap that was ok :(

Well placed for the bus from the slopes, we enjoyed a dinner here with very good food and excellent service. It looked rather uninspiring from the outside but was very comfortable and enjoyable inside.

Needed a Sunday breakfast fix and the Bridge Bistro fit the bill perfectly. Tasty selection of "Bennys" plus more on the menu. Reasonable prices, prompt service. Highly recommend.

This place tries too hard. I had chicken which was dried out. Roasted vegetables were good but nothing special. My husband had elk meatloaf and liked it. The service is very friendly (like everywhere in Fernie) but the food was just ok.
