We came only to have a thirst quenching ale and were able to score the last table on the deck. Great to watch the passing parade of those with much more energy than us. Very good selection of local and BC craft beers (can't remember...exactly the brand but it was from one of the well known Victoria craft breweries). . We were served quickly by a delightful English girl who wished us well. No food this time around but we will save that for another visit to Fernie...what a cute little place.More

Very average food. My kale apple salad was way better then the sandwich I ordered. I had braised beef sandwich and it had almost no taste and au jus was not helping. Restaurant was clearly understaffed and we had had to wait over an hour...for a table, luckily the food arrived quickly after the order.More

Ordered pull pork poutine. The menu said it was meant to be waffle fries with cheese bacon coleslaw and pulled pork. I instead received regular fries with bbq sauce & gravy and nothing else. I then asked the waiter for another item on the menu...which came 50 mins later, after my party had all paid their bills. We come from out of town and needed to get on the road. I asked for the item to be boxed as it came so late and was given no fork. I asked for a fork and was told by a nasty lady inside that “we don’t do to go cutlery”. I was then charged 30+$ by the waiter for both items but was given no receipt. Overall experience is best summarized as “WTF”.More

Cool spot with a great beer list and really good food. Painfully slow wait though. Servers were definitely trying but our food took more than an hour to come out.

Second visit here while Visiting Fernie and we haven’t been disappointed by the delicious food and great service yet. For a Saturday evening they were on top of their game and had some playing too.

Whether you stop in for a quick beverage or come for a full dinner, the service is friendly and quick. The food has also never disappointed - the fish & chips is amazing. And you won't go away hungry! If you are into sports, there...are numerous TV's to watch your favorite game. This place gets busy on weekend nights so either go early, plan to share a table with others or be prepared to wait. It's worth the wait.More

Stopped by for a late lunch on a Saturday. Good selection of on tap beer.... the pickle burger and calamari were generous portions and tasty. Friendly server and pleasant atmosphere. We will be back!

One night in Fernie, and ended up at this restaurant purely for downtown location. It was a great choice. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was delicious. The place has a stage, and based on the atmosphere, it would be worth checking out...when someone is playing. A nice find.More

We went to dinner here our first night in Fernie after we couldn’t get into Nevados next door (2 hour wait there!). We ate at the bar and enjoyed the scene overall. We just had burgers, which were very good...helpful to know however that all...burgers everywhere in Canada must be cooked well done by law. We prefer medium rare, but still enjoyed these!More
