We eat here most Friday nights and the food is excellent. However they have a staff shortage in the kitchen and have limited the menu to three items : fish and chips, a burger, and chicken schnitzel. All of them are usually wonderful. This time we all had fish and chips. After waiting an hour for our meals we were all disappointed with the overcooked and dry fish that we were served. We were each comped a drink die to our long wait and we appreciate that and hope that this problem can be rectified soon.

Hi Christine,
It's nice to hear that you come regularly and enjoy The Fernie, sorry about last Friday, hoping this was a "one off"! We are working very hard to ensure our kitchen is in top form and able to bring you the quality you are used to!
Cheers!

We stopped in for a $10 burger and Beer special on Wed Night and highly reccomend it. Looks like it would be a great place to go Apres Ski!

It was a neat place with a lot of local flare. Kind of rustic with animals on the wall along with ski stuff. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Burgers and sweet potato fries were good. Another had the wings and felt they weren't anything outstanding. Appears to be some night life there but it was a Tuesday and seemed to be filled with locals. Nice spot for casual dinner. I understand they have a great breakfast buffet on Sundays. Stop in.
