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.

Local Pub House – Things are ALWAYS Happening!

Boundary Bay is Bellingham's oldest brewery for a reason... Great beer, food, staff and pub atmosphere. Crafted brews on tap (including seasonals). Fantastic pub fare (try the Yam Ale-chiladas or Bison burger with bleu cheese, or salmon chowder). Boundary is a regular sponsor of many local events... read more

Food was good but the service was very poor. Considering the popularity of this place and the fact they knew they had 3 large reservations, their staffing was horrible. And attitudes were bad. Won't go there again.

We are locals and there are lots of good restaurants in the Bellingham and Fairhaven areas, but this is our favorite. We love the original craft beers (the oatmeal stout is a favorite) and the nachos. The service has always been good even when the place is packed, which it often is on a weekend. Great place to get a... More

Great place to grab a local brew in Bellingham. We visited on a Saturday and the place is adjacent to a great local market. There appeared to be a wait for a table in restaurant area so we grabbed a table in the bar/brewery area with no problem

We were already falling in love with Bellingham on our first visit when we fell into this Bistro! We preferred to sit on the patio where they have basically picnic tables. There was a short wait (maybe 10 min) to sit outside on that mild and beautiful day. Water and place settings were put out on the table just seconds... More

Food is OK but nothing special. Some vegetarian options are available. Noise levels are too high for most conversation. Get used to yelling across the table. Beer has way too much hops for my taste.

This was a well reviewed place so we headed downtown on Saturday night. We were able to park close by and easily get a table. The beer really is excellent here, especially if you are into something a little more malty than the "Hop-insanity" of current IPA trends. The setting is a little cheesy and ramshackle. The food was good.... More

We love Boundry Bay -- truly outstanding craft beer; very good food; and excellent service. Fun place. Often has live music - blues, country, etc.

I go to Boundary Bay embarassingly often. I love the food and the feel. And the beer. They provide entertainment in their outdoor garden, a happy happy hour, and a great place to meet friends. Did I say the food was good? The staff is fabulous and many of them have worked there for a very long time. They love... More
