The risotto special of the day was excellent and my husband really enjoyed the wild boar. Both came hot and with good seasonings. However, I would not recommend the escargot for a starter. The description says topped with cheese but what came was a bowl of snails without the shells in a liquid that was not your traditional butter and... More

Two dinners here, as we enjoyed it so much. It was nice that we could make reservations online. Located just as you come into Fernie from the west over the bridge. The menu is not large nor is the place super fancy. However the food is tremendous with everything we tried. Our gluten free diner was able to find many... More

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!

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.
