Fernie has an ever-increasing selection of restaurants, from cafés and bakeries to full-blown gourmet eateries. You can find an eclectic mix of cuisines and, of course, fantastically friendly Canadian service wherever you go. Canadian meat is especially good, and you simply must try the local British Columbian wines.
• The Rusty Edge, Griz Inn – Wholesome, tasty food is served up in big portions, from burgers and pizza to cottage pie, jambalaya and a Sunday roast. There's a different special each day so you can always grab a bargain.
• Yamagoya – This place is so good, there's actually two outlets - one in town and one at the Alpine Lodge. They serve some of the best sushi in British Columbia, including the signature Fernie roll.
• Loaf Bakery – The Italian dinner menu combines homemade artisan bread with fresh Italian food, including all the classic pasta and pizzas. You can even build your own pizza from scratch to get it just the way you like it.
• The Brickhouse – A lively pub-style atmosphere and delicious American food. The menu includes unusual items like chocolate and chilli beef short ribs, as well as the usual burgers, nachos and chicken wings.
• The Curry Bowl – Tuck into delicious Asian cuisine, with curries from loads of different countries, as well as rice and noodles. Whichever one you pick, it'll be fresh, hot and tasty.
• Lost Boy’s Café (top of Timber Bowl Express chairlift) – A tiny, rustic self-service place that’s all about the breathtaking views – though it has a decent menu of snacks and light meals too.
• Legends Mountain Restaurant (at the base of resort) – Replacing Kelsey's from winter 17/18, this bar and restaurant provides a relaxed atmosphere, with reasonable prices and generous portions.
Fernie itself it usually pretty quiet, though you will find a good choice of friendly and inviting bars full of upbeat locals.
• Fernie Hotel – This historic pub features a pub menu, pool tables, a dance floor, live music, sports events n the TV and lots and lots of drinks - a partygoer's heaven, is it not?
• The Pub Bar & Grill – This is said to be Fernie's favourite meeting spot. You'll find sports on the TV, pool, table football and free WiFi. What's more, it's even got fantastic mountain views from the outdoor patio.
• Grizzly Bar – Compared to the others, this bar has more of a mellow atmosphere, however, on the weekends there's live music and a more buzzing atmosphere.
• Stick to the runs off the Deer and Elk lifts in the morning, and then switch to the Timber Bowl Express.
• Avoid Lizard and Cheddar at the end of the day - White Pass Quad is a quieter way down.
