Description: 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 5 pm daily, you can have a taste of our in house prepared rotisserie chicken and ribs. We look forward serving you.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped by twice during our stay in Fernie, once for lunch and once for supper. The fish and chips were a big hit with the crunchy coating with black sesame seeds in it. I had the wild boar linguini special and it was excellent. The service was very attentive, you can't go wrong with this place.

“Supper on the patio”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We were here for supper on a Sunday evening. Starter was chips and dips which includes colored tortilla chips with salsa, guacamole and a yellow hummus. Very tasty nibbles while we waited for our main course. We both had the roast chicken dinner which was good too.

“just average”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Gave this place another try and our group of 6 was very disappointed in the food. Can't pinpoint exactly what or why but we all said we'd never go back. Food was pricey and there was not much flavor. I don't like to give bad reviews, but if you're in fernie, I'd go elsewhere, like the golf course, their food is always good.

“Very good restaurant, fries not so much.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This restaurant has a very nice large patio overlooking the elk river. Very nice view and atmosphere. Every time we drove by the place seemed busy so we decided to stop in on our last day in fernie. The prices are very comparable to a boston pizza and found the food to be better too. The service was good and giving each table a jug if water is a nice touch imo. I got the Korean bbq pita and it was very good, I liked it alot. The one thing is the fries weren't that great, looked and tasted more like McCain steak fries. But overall I would highly recommend this restaurant and would go there again.

“Nice lunch stop”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Our party enjoyed burgers and a veggie quesadilla . . . burgers were excellent, made in-house and were well garnished and included great french fries! Quesadilla review . . .very good, well fired, and large - could easily be a shared item. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
