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 food and better beer

Made a special run into Bellingham to eat and drink at Boundary Bay. Had a very good lunch; prices were great for the lunch items. Family friendly. Had good service. The Inside Passage IPA is super.

Boundary Bay Brewery is local favorite. It has great casual dining with good beers and a large vegetarian menu. Their Salmon chowder is full of salmon and has a rich buttery flavor

We had a fairly large party and were seated right away, which was nice, because I was starving! I ordered the Beef Burger; 1/3lb of natural ground beef from Squaw Creek Cattle Co. (in Everson) char broiled with all the fixings on a Ralf's pretzel bun, with roasted potatoes on the side. I was disappointed with my burger. The patty... More

In a world where there are so many restaurants that try to be "local" Boundary Bay definitely succeeds. They do an excellent job of having enough of a variety of fine brews that everyone in a group, regardless of taste, will find something they enjoy. Whenever they host a special event, whether for a fund raiser or a holiday like... More

Great food, great beer, and music! I have fond memories of summer days outside listening to live music and enjoying fresh food and delicious beer.

I ate her with my wife and ordered the taster of their in house brewed beers. After drinking all the samples I was faced with the hardest decision of my life. Which of the delicious spirits I just drank would I order first? I felt like I was being forced to choose a favourite child... I settled on the Blonde.... More

There are many things on the BB menu worth trying (yam alecheladas! nachos! tapenade! reuben!), but there's one perfect meal that'll make you want to become a regular. Land yourself a seat in the pub room, if possible. The outside deck is nice too, but bring a sweater unless you've managed to time your dining experience for the opportune moment... More

It was obvious to us this is a popular hangout in historical downtown Bellingham. If you are into good brews you will be right at home. We were there for a late dinner and had the oyster appie (tasty) meatloaf and fish tacos. The food was really good (fish tacos a little bland) and the service was pretty good. Cool... More

Let me start by saying that this a great place in downtown Bellingham to hang out and have a beer. It has a ton of great beer selections, but I would highly recommend the ESB if you only want to try one. The food on the other hand is just ok. It's not bad, but it's nothing special. There also...
