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.

Great place!

Beer, menu and atmosphere are all great here. Lots of variety on the menu and lots off healthy options. Have been going here for years and never had a bad experience

Two times in the last month we have tried going to BB. Both times it was self seating. We sat at a table in the bar area. We waited 10 plus minutes both times and got up and left and found another place to eat. We had been there before and enjoyed it, so when service was bad once, we... More

This restaurant and brewery is one of the more popular places in town. They have great food, great beer, and a laid back environment including a nice deck in the summer. There is even live music, usually on the weekends. The beer menu is great with usually a few seasonal options. The food is standard bar food but done really... More

The beer here is always great. My favorite is the scotch ale. I have never been overly impressed with the food and I hope someday that they will consider a new menu. I usually order a salad. The steamers are pretty amazing though. There is also a great beer garden in the warmer months

Boundary Bay has some great comfort food, some with a unique twist. It's a very casual atmosphere that can get a little loud and the seating can be a little uncomfortable. But the great food and reasonable prices make it must visit in Bellingham

The food was ok. Service could improve. Atmosphere is good. Tables and chairs a little old and broken. Great location.

I ordered fish and chips and beer. The beer was ok - pretty much what I would expect from a nice brewery. Fish and chips also ok. I went for a late lunch on a Friday and found the service really slow. SWAG better than most brewpubs.

If we lived nearer, we would eat here again. Nothing fancy about the atmosphere. There are sails and spinnakers hanging from the walls and ceiling. Service was nice, but the food took awhile to arrive. It was hot and delicious, but not special. The beer is front and center here. They do that well!

Wall to wall seating of people who are enjoying excellent pub fare and fresh craft brews is what you see when you walk in the door -- a very good sign. Mac and cheese and Rueben sandwich both were wonderful. The service here is excellent too! Cheers!
