Bear & Bone Burger Co, located in Golden BC, is a casual full-service restaurant. On traditional territory of the Ktunaxa and Secwépemc peoples.


We try to incorporate local ingredients whenever possible, and every year have added more. Our goal is to always prioritize using ingredients we can source from town, or BC, or Western Canada. Our beef used for our burgers is raised with love in Golden at Whiskey Hill farms, we use the Golden Bakery for a lot of our baking needs, and a lot of products used are sourced through BC indigenous businesses such as Spirit Bear Coffee. Our vision was to create a menu and atmosphere that highlights the beauty and diversity of Golden and the area. 


The restaurant is filled with pictures and artifacts from the area– loaned to us by the Golden Museum. We also have various wood sculptures, tables, and seating created by local artists and manufacturers. The mountain views from the restaurant give a slice of the beauty that Golden has to offer. 


We are dedicated to creating a strong community within the restaurant and town and share it with everyone who comes to visit us, from near and far. 



About the owner: John Bowness


Born and raised in Golden, I worked across Canada with Canadian Pacific Railway for more than twelve years. I met my fiancé, Christiann, while working in Revelstoke and we realized we shared a passion for business, community, and leadership.


I am proudly Metis, my family was part of the Red River settlement on my fathers side. They were involved in the fur trade and eventually made it out to Lac La Biche. That’s where my grandmother, and then father were born. I grew up knowing of my ancestry but it always felt like a hidden truth, through my own reconciliation, and education I have become very proud of my heritage, and incorporate Metis and Indigenous values into my own.
