We've visited for dinner during RSVP and Ski-to-Sea. Events like these are on the calendar months ahead and pack in the drinkers and diners, so BB could staff up. We waited about 10 minutes before anyone took a drink or food order (when the dinner shift came on duty), but then drinks and food arrived in a timely manner. BB... More

Read reviews and was in the area so tried it. Had our 2 dogs and not dog friendly as we were told could leave them out on the sidewalk. Had to drive around to find covered parking. If knew what was in store would not have wasted our time. Short wait and were sat on deck. Pretty gruesome spot. Dirty... More

The beer is great as is the food and I can wear my flip flops and paint streaked t-shirt without feeling weird. I also end up there quite a bit wearing heels and that seems to work too. The food is quality food and as I get older, I find that really matters to me. Don't try to contact them... More

We visited the Boundary Bay Brewery twice during our stay, once just for beers and again for the Friday night fish fry. The beers are very good, and the Boundary has an excellent selection of different styles. I thoroughly enjoyed my Imperial IPA. On Friday, we though the venue was great - outside Biergarten with a free live band. There... More

Boundary Bay Brewery is one of the landmark spots to eat in Bellingham. It's beer is delicious and brewed on site and the food is sheer Bellingham - fresh, tasty, lots of organic and vegetarian choices. The Yam Alecheladas are to DIE for. Sound weird, taste like heaven =).

Title says it all - the service, each time I've come in (8, in total - since we won't return most likely) has been completely lackluster. I wonder at times if it might just be the way the restaurant is set to have employees interact, maybe because it's almost like a free-for-all when you walk in, but truthfully, I believe... More

This is a good burger & brew place! Everyone in our party of seven cleaned their plates. There were a few Rueben sandwiches, Mac & Cheese, fish tacos and a hamburger! Everyone was happy and the service was pretty good. It's a popular place so seating takes awhile. You can go to the beer garden, but it has much more... More

Food was decent but not exceptional. Place a little too loud for my taste. Convenient location and atmosphere for younger crowd

Great food. Great beer. Fun atmosphere. I'm been a semi-regular for 17 years and still love it. The food is better than your typical pub food. Several good veggie options.
