Selection of local brews that would satisfy most beer drinkers out there. Fun place, good food, lively crowd, service was top-notch.

The beer here was brilliant. The place is split into a bar area (with TVs showing sports), a restaurant area and a beer garden. They have a core selection of beers and seasonal selections. The food was ok, my meatloaf sandwich was a little disappointing but my husband's salad looked very good.

This establishment has an identity. It you're looking for the atmosphere and flavors of Bellingham, I would recommend you try this place. Great selection of in-house beers and ales. We enjoyed the pan fried oysters and the beer beef stew soup/salad combo. This is a place we will want to re-visit.

Had a flight of beer samples and the salmon chowder (which was incredible and you must get it). Nice atmosphere. Servers were kinda snotty. But it was worth a quick stop!

Very casual atmosphere. Great food, beer and service. Nice that they not only have a bar for adults, but eating areas for families as well.

This bistro had a great selection of craft beer. I had the Irish stout which had great body and flavour. The bistro offered a great selection and I had the smoked salmon chowder to start - excellent and the lamb burger which was served on a pretzel bun with salad, also very flavourful. The decor was interesting as well -... More

We had a spectacular dinner and beers on early move in day at WWU! Weather was perfect, food was perfect, beer was perfect......including the cask conditioned IPA! Service was great, too, despite the local event pressures (relay race, farmers market, etc.)
