Our red seal chef uses only the finest and freshest of ingredients in order to deliver what we believe is the best food in Fernie.

Decent nachos and galic bread, but the service was really slow.

It was very frustrating as what you need when you're skiing is a quick snack, which is why we opted for a nachos not a full main, but there was clearly not enough staff. I think the excuse was that the ovens had broken, but the coke was also a bit watery and lacking in fizz. Being on the hill it was also over priced.

My husband and I visited his parents in the Crowsnest Pass region of southern Alberta last summer for some relaxation and to spend as much time as possible with family. Since it was only my second visit to the area, my in-laws wanted to take us for a day trip to Fernie in British Columbia (just a 20 minute drive from where they live). After some shopping downtown, we decided to eat at the Lizard Creek Lodge's restaurant for lunch.

The restaurant has some rather unconventional seating (couches and overstuffed chairs pulled up to coffee tables and the like), but they have conventional seating (chairs and a table!) as well. Every seat has a beautiful view of the mountain and ski lift behind the lodge. Our waiter was very friendly and made great recommendations. They have great barbecue, delicious sandwiches, and many options for vegetarians (vegetable curry, portobello mushroom sandwich, fettuccine alfredo, etc.

After lunch, we took a walk outside. The view is amazing, and the ski lift operates and gives rides to visitors up the mountain even when there isn't snow on the ground.

All in all, it was a great experience. Great food, great service, and a beautiful view from every table.
