Over the last few years, the Bridge Bistro has become one of our favourite spots to enjoy food and drinks. From the amazing patio in the summer, to a seat by the fireplace in the winter, we love to stop in and enjoy the ambiance. Our last visit had us enjoying the daily mussel feature ( a go to for...

The Bridge Bistro is along the highway between downtown and the ski hill. It offers a nice mix of local ingredients and unique dishes coupled with common favourites so should have something for everyone. The food we had was excellent and the service was fantastic and we will definitely go back. There is a small bar with a few chairs... More

I had my birthday dinner at the Bridge Bistro and it was a good experience. The service was excellent. The surf and turf was a little underwhelming and I wouldn't order it. However, I had the ultimate meal and my partner had the wild boar and both dishes were decent!

Definitely looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, but after some positive review from a fellow hotel-stayer; we decided to try it out. It was amazing. I had the wild boar and it was so tender. 100% would go again!

Very friendly staff but quite a long wait on food. When it did arrive some of the food was quite cold (e.g. burgers). The maccaroni cheese was nice and hot too though. The main issue was with the gluten free charges. One member of our group is coeliac and so can't eat gluten. They couldn't have the chips so were... More

Pretty standard family restaurant fare. Priced reasonable, comes fast a d tastes good. No complaints from the minions and all the plates were cleaned of food. That's a successful meal in my books.

My husband and I walked from the Best Western down to the Bistro. Beautiful weather so walk was great (minus the lack of sidewalks randomly along the way). The interior is very beautiful and warm. We were greater by our charming and friendly waitress. The supper was really good. Crab cakes, homemade mushroom soup and the chicken/rib dinner. I didn't... More

We stopped by this interesting bistro on the way through Fernie on the Thanksgiving weekend. Interesting clean décor, Fantastic service. We enjoyed the lunch special which was homemade soup and an open face turkey sandwich. Both tasted delicious and flavorful! Generous serving for lunch.

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.
