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.

We stopped at The Bridge Bistro on our way through Fernie. We were delighted to find this little place given that most choices in town are all greasy spoon places; thanks to all the good reviews too for helping us find this restaurant.

This restaurant has been through many incarnations over the years, but it is probably at its best now that it is the Bridge Bistro. The menu has a great variety of dishes which are not typical of a highway side establishment. My wife had the Vegetable Stack which she thoroughly enjoyed. I ate the Jerk Chicken Quesadilla which had nice... More

I have given this restaurant an excellent rating due to the great food. The chef needs to be applauded for wanting to give patrons marvelous flavour in each dish. We had brisket quesadillas which were the best I have ever eaten. You could taste everything that was in them and they were packed with meat and veggies. We also had... More

Despite this inside was well laid out, with intimate booths and nice fittings. The menu offers appetisers to share , quesadillas, a range of salads, mains including burgers and a range of BBQ options.... More

Had crab cakes (3 small) which were spicy & hid the taste of crab. A pound of mussels were very good as the broth included orange & cherry tomatoes which gave the wine/garlic a unique boost. The half ribs were dry on the outside but moist on the inside ribs. Ate orange Chocolate mouse/angel cake was presented with a candied... More

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