After an exhausting trip from Calgary. We made a stop in this nice little town. Looking for something different than chained restaurant. We came across to this Bristro Bridge. The interior are modern and nice atmosphere. The food was amazing, very clean and good service. I would definitely come back again. Two thumps up! 👌🏼

We came here with a group of six on a Saturday night after finding out that a lot of the other restaurants in town were very busy but the bridge bistro had an opening. We were very happy with the prompt and friendly service. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The elk shorts ribs and mussels were highlights for sure. The potatoes... More

We were sifting through the many restaurant choices in Fernie for our last night and I decided to try out the Bridge Bistro. I was not disappointed. The burger was delicious and the fish and chips was quite good as well. We've had many fish and chips from many places and the batter for these was quite unique. Very tasty.... More

Four of us stopped for a late lunch mid-week and were pleasantly surprised. Relaxing atmosphere and good grub for a reasonable price. We can vouch for the beef bourguignon, bistro burger, fish & chips, and soup and sandwich special. Everything is made in-house, including the soup. Portion sizes are generous, ingredients are fresh, dishes are well prepared and presented, and... More

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

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.
