Healthy fair from an institution in casual dinning in downtown Bellingham. Can get very busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Super friendly trendy staff make the experience even nicer.

We had the luck to choose this brewery for lunch, the place was packed and had an exciting ambiance, the goof was good and service friendly. If you are looking for a real fun place to have an informal lunch or dinner while watching your favourite sport event this is the place to be!

We've visited the BB brewery a number of times and it remains our "best in Bellingham" for eateries--not surprising that we found ourselves here twice during a recent visit. Casual and affordable with consistently tasty locally sourced menu offerings--and good service. A dining room is available but we prefer the lively pub atmosphere. BB brewery is one of those places... More

Excellent beer, and great food that doesn't break the bank. We ate one night, with daughter, son-in-law, and 9 month old grand-daughter in the restaurant part. Excellent yam enchiladas, fish tacos, natchos. A couple of days later we sat in the bar, during happy hour. Excellent wings, mini mac and cheese, sliders, and did I mention the beer? $1 cheaper...

A popular place for all hours of great beer consumption. I personally recommend the Boundary Bay IPA or Imperial IPA. The food menu is a can't miss the best Mac and Cheese in town. Highly recommend the Imperial Nachos. If you're looking for a delicious sandwhich go with the French Dip with onions & provolone. My favorite entree is the... More

Boundary is a great spot for local, casual dining. The food is consistently great, and the beer is obviously fantastic. Prepare for a wait. Most of the time you can't get a table right away, but that's a testament to their popularity. The downside, if there is one would be that parking can be a challenge.

Great beer, best to date in Bellingham....although new ones coming all the time. The food is better than average in a pub and we are good customers as the combination of great beer and good pub food works!

The food is consistently great if you can get in the door. For what it is the prices are above average and the atmosphere is noisy with college students. If that's your thing then this is the place for you! I prefer a slightly quieter atmosphere like the Chuckanut Brewery on Holly St.
