Description: 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 nachos and pub food; beer too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Boundary Bay. The serving of Imperial Nachos was huge and delicious (we got the large guacamole which was a perfect addition). We ordered the guacamole and enjoyed it as well. The pesto salmon sandwich was tasty too. The lamb burger was delicious.

“Nice location, but very average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had beer and lunch here. The beer was good, but nothing to write home about. The nachos were overdone with jalapenos, but pretty good otherwise. Service was marginal.

“Busy but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Saturday afternoon at Boundary Bay was packed but they gave us a buzzer so we were able to walk across the street and enjoy the farmer's market while we waited. The beer was a little hoppy for me but my husband loves IPA's so he was happy. My burger was good and it's served on a pretzel bun which was interesting and tasty. Our server was a super nice kid who really did a nice job despite the place being packed. They had forgotten to put our son's pizza in the oven and they comped us the cost of his pizza when the bill arrived. That was nice. They seem to aim to please which is nice.

“Lunch delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Stopped on our way to Vancouver for a quick lunch. Found it in trip advisor. It is a few miles off the highway in the downtown area. Sit inside or out, seat yourself. Nice menu choices, gluten free beer and pizza are options. Nice sized meals for lunch. Worth the trip.
