A beer lover's paradise in downtown Bellingham. True northwest IPA's and more. Very good food, from lamb burgers, to beef stew, to great salads. But, the beer and the atmosphere are why Boundary Bay is an almost weekly stop for me and my wife. Especially on a sunny, Farmer's Market, Saturday for beer and snacks in the beer garden.

I love IPAs and Boundary Bay brews one of the best available. The atmosphere is lively and a great place to meet friends for a beer and food. The eatery section serves great tasting food at a reasonable price. There is an outdoor beer garden that is a great area in the summer.

I went here frequently during the 2 years I lived in Bellingham. Can't miss destination if you are traveling through. Good beer and consistent food. This is where I would tell people to go if they could only eat out once in Bellingham. The summer beer garden is fantastic. Place has something for everyone.

Boundary's beer is some of the best in the world! The wait staff has a reputation for not always being friendly, however. Still, a great place!

This place not too long on looks but has been a favored lunch spot for m for two reasons. A stellar Scotch Ale and a fine prime rib dip sandwich. To tell the truth I am so hooked on these that I never try anything else. The location acrossed the street from the Bellingham street market is ideal and on... More

BB has some of the best beer around....and very good food. It is what a microbrewery should be. During the academic year there are lots of university patrons, students, faculty and staff....and during the summer months you can sit outside. All in all, it's a great little place.

We're visiting Bellingham to see Western Washington University with our son and had dinner here tonight. We had the tapenade goat mile appetizer which was really good, especially the sliced tomatoes. My son had a burger which her liked. My wife shared the sockeye salmon that came with Yukon Gold potatoes and broccoli. I also had the steamers in a... More

We eat at Boundary Bay once a week...sometimes more. It is absolutely our favorite neighborhood hangout in Bellingham. The beer is so-o-o good, the service is efficient and friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable and friendly, and the menu is great. At other places, I sometimes get stuck on one menu item that I enjoy and don't try other items, but... More

We lucked out with Lacey as our waitress. We had a 6 hour flight delay and decided to explore. Searched For local brewery with food and ended up here. It was raining and 32 degrees outside. Inside it was warm, friendly, and served excellent food. We ordered the Ruben, meatloaf sandwich, bacon burger, and an order of steamers. EXCELLENT

This casual, award winning brew pub welcomes guests with much beyond the great food and drink. Summers offer outdoor games in the lower garden, local art on the walls and a friendly staff is there year long. It is a favorite place for a bowl of stew, creamy salmon chowder or fresh fish tacos.
