Nice vibe to this place, had burgers which were pretty good quality. Came with a good choice of sides (includes two with price of meal). Some interesting options, yam fries for example. Nice ceasar salad and garlic mash. The service was pleasant but not quick enough if I'm totally honest. Not the waitresses fault, she was obviously over stretched and... More

Northern is family friedly and their food was great! We had wings and burgers which comes with two sides. Prices started at $12-$19 for burgers. Beer on taps and lots of TV's. They have a stag for live music but when we where there it was quite which was fine as we had kids with us.

We booked our tickets in advance for this sold out show. The Snowed In Comedy show is in its 9th year and we had a lot of laughs. We went after dinner so just had beers during the show. This bar has live (not dead) entertainment on a regular basis and a younger crowd, some of whom seemed to relish... More

We were in on a Thursday night. We had heard they would have live music(apparently that is the Brickhouse, not the northern on Thursdays). The burgers were tasty, the poutine of dreams was massive, would be ideal for sharing. The locals and barkeeper were very friendly, pool table was free to use, beer on tap was nice and cold.

The food, when it arrived over 90 minutes latter, was excellent. Way above average pub food but 90 minutes wait is just too long and we were not told that the wait would be that long. If you go do ask before you sit how long for the food. If you have the time the food was really excellent.

Northern is good quality pub food. The beers are good - huge variety - and the food solid. They have a good rotating special each night which is really good value. Pint and a burger for $10 the night i was there. Other reviews complained about slow service, but I had no complaints. It wasn't super fast, but is there... More

I would go back here. My partner got wings and enjoyed them with a nice cold beer and I was feeling like something with veggies so I got a rice bowl. It was nicer than I was expecting :) There is nothing better than sitting out on the patio in the sunshine with a cold beer as well!

Stopped in for supper during stay in Fernie. The food was good, but it took forever to be served. The service from the waitress was fine - the kitchen was super slow. We were in no rush and had plenty of time on our hands so we didn't mind but if we were starving and had somewhere to be -... More

I was wandering around Fernie in the morning I and took a peak at the menu scouting options for dinner in the evening. The hand pressed burgers caught my eye. I love a great burger. So, I went back in the evening and had exactly that. Burger with fries and kale/apple salad. The burger was excellent. Flavours were great. Good... More
