Fergus & Bix

After three years feeding and watering the denizens of Aspen Woods, Fergus & Bix opened a second location in Marda Loop in late 2011. Replacing the poorly conceived O Restaurant, F&B became instantly popular.

That’s because of its Western Canadian-focused beer list, its globally inspired pub menu ranging from stir-fried calamari to blackened chicken with lots of nachos in-between, its fine service and the fact Marda Loopers have been longing for a good neighbourhood pub for years.

Fergus & Bix is service-first, big on the meet-and-greet-and-smile and quick on the beer draw. The food is almost as fast — our pizza arrived well before our salad was finished. And, although it doesn’t quite meet gastropub quality, it’s well-prepared enough to keep folks coming back.

It’s also a comfortable place to relax for a while, quaff a few, watch the game, loll in the sun on the south-facing deck and then walk home. As long as you live in the neighbourhood, of course.
