Me and my wife tried this restaurant on our visit to Bellingham, WA. We had to stay about 30 minutes in the line to get a seat but it was definitely worth it. Lamb burger was cooked perfectly and the potato wedges were awesomely tasty however, they were a little bit overcooked. I tried their Scotch Ale beer and found... More

We stumbled across this place abour two years ago, after living in the lower mainland of BC, Canada for over 30 years. We travel to the US weekly for gas and groceries and were in the downcore core looking for a place to eat. Bellingham is a difficult city to navigate and we still find areas we have not explored...

Frankly, the food here is decent, but nothing exciting. But the beer, oh the beer! If you're an IPA drinker, this is about the best IPA you can get, a classic northwest IPA that was one of the originals. The other beers are generally really good too. I'm not personally a fan of the ESB, but people really love it.... More

No visit to Bellingham is complete for us unless we stop to sample the wares available at the Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro. This visit was no exception and we were not disappointed. My wife chose fusilli with cascadian mushrooms in a white wine sauce and tossed in gorgonzolla cheese and I selected a delicious basil pesto sockeye salmon filet... More

Probably the best 10-15 beers you'll ever try from one brewery. Lots of breweries have 2,3 maybe even 4 good beers, depending on how many they are brewing at any given time. This place is batting 1000% .OK, so that might be a stretch considering you'd have to like all styles of beers, but give it a shot, I bet... More

A fun pub atmosphere, with decent food and drinks. Super busy but the staff were still attentive and helpful. Great value. Will go back.

We drove up from Seattle last weekend just because it was a nice day for a Scotch Ale and a Sunday drive. This was our first time up to the brewery even though we have been fans of their beer for years. Emily our waitress was amazing (and so is her electric purple hair!!). She was friendly, genuine and attentive.... More
