Always great food and the atmosphere is amazing, a hundred year old building with hundreds of old signs, tools, stuffed wildlife, almost anything you can imagine decorating the walls.

We stopped here on the way to a family ski vacation in Fernie. It was a great place to eat with kids (ours are 4, 6 and 7). There is a kids menu with a number of different choices, and it has games and pictures for them to colour. There are also a lot of cool decorations for the kids... More

We eat here often because we like the Pub atmosphere. We tend to find the food inconsistent. There prices are on the higher side of pub grub for sure.

We attempt the food at the rum runner once a year and without fail, the service and food was once again sub standard. I'll try again next year and hopefully it'll get better. Service was slow and the ribs we had was burnt black. The second offering of ribs was only slightly better.

Spent the weekend in the Pass snowmobiling and went here twice for supper. Burgers are amazing and so are the appies! Forgot my prescription pills our last night and the staff phone around town to get them returned to us. Will stop there again.

You know the food you want after a hard day of riding...good quality, stick to your ribs and fill you up type grub! Rumrunner delivers in spades. Don't drive any further. Stop here. Hunt for a parking spot. And make time for a great after sledding experience! The place itself has tons of character! Which is what maybe makes it... More

Great wings, good beer, nothing not to like here. Sixteen thumbs up. As you may have already guessed, I have a hard time finding gloves that fit.

We always stop here traveling between Calgary and Fernie. The staff are always friendly, the food very good and lots of it. My girlfriend and I just shared a burger and onion rings; both were excellent and the shared platter was more than enough for a couple. Would highly recommend this little pub and grill anytime.

We showed up without a reservation and in large numbers. The staff was very accommodating and we all got our food within a reasonable amount of time considering our numbers. Food was very good. Portion sizes were great. Would recommend.
