Boundary Bay Brewery opened in 1995 & we've been making great handcrafted beer and fresh, local food for the Bellingham community ever since! Our brewery houses a Tap Room and family-friendly Bistro, located in a restored historic 1922 warehouse in Downtown Bellingham, across from the Saturday Farmer's Market. We also have a great deck for outdoor dining and a Beer Garden where you can enjoy BBQ's and outdoor concerts in the Summer.

One of the first breweries in town with a great location right across from the public market. wide range of good food options available with various flavors of beers to enhance the meal. Good service and fair value.

Stopped in for lunch with the kids. Didn't get to try any of the beers but lunch was ordered and delivered quickly. Ordered the BLAT with gluten free bread. Tasty! Fish tacos were good but lacked a tad bit of salt. Mac and cheese did indeed please. The banh mi sandwich was also good. Cool place. Would come again

It has been a while since we visited BBBB...last time we thought the food a bit disappointing. But this time it was excellent...nice sized portions during the 4 to 6 pm happy hour. Beers are quite good too although I think other brewpubs in Bellingham are slightly better.

I always enjoy Boundary Bay brews but I had not visited the pub before. The establishment is large. Indoor and outdoor seating, live music and swag. We ate in the bar and enjoyed great service and food while we watched the brewmaster at work. The Scotch Ale was Amazing. Friday night they have a fishfry.

Best part of visiting Bellingham. Great location especially if market is going on across the street. A drink or a meal this is best place. Iconic beer selection and great atmosphere.

We had lunch today at Boundary Bay. The food and atmosphere was great. We all enjoyed our meals as well as the beer. The service was remarkable. We alerted our server that we we needed to order as soon as possible in order to make a flight. Although they were very busy, we instantly became the top priority of all... More

Over the years, I've been here many times, and Boundary Bay Brewery and Bistro never fails to excel in their craft beer while offering very good pub food that is always fresh and tasty. Be sure to try their current cask beers on their two beer engine pumps - you might luck out and sample their cask ESB! Nothing too... More

We are visiting Bellingham for just one day and the cabbie suggested trying Boundary Bay Brewery. We were not disappointed. There is a vibrant atmosphere in this establishment. The staff are very friendly and efficient helping us choose the right beer for our liking. We ordered the hommus and the tapenade appertisers. They were very tasty and well presented and... More

Travelling by car we pass through Bellingham from time to time and a favorite stop for lunch or dinner is the Boundary Bay Brewery and Bistro. On this occasion dinner was the objective and once again they did an excellent job of providing a fine meal along with a satisfying brew. It is a rather large restaurant in an informal... More

Signage is quiet, but you will hear guests outside before you arrive. We waited about 15 minutes to get in. That in itself isn't a problem. What was a problem was that there were at least 10 empty tables in full view of the reservation/hostess desk. Not sure if this is a flow problem or just laid back staff and... More
