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 local brewery with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great brewery for the beer fans. The noise level is loud, the food sometimes too salty, but overall good food.

“Nice brew pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Friends and I recently had lunch at Boundary Bay in Bellingham. The beer selection was all right and it was served cold. Service was good. Between us we had imperial nachos, salad, and soup. The half order of nachos was huge. The chips and cheese were good, but it was a single layer of cheese over a mound of chips so those located further down weren't covered. The picante sauce served with them was fresh and mild. The salad was good and fresh. The soup was average.

If you like their beer, you should definitely give it a shot. I would give it 3.5 if I could award 1/2 stars. I plan on visiting again at some point to check out more of the food selections.

“Thursdays at 5; late spring through early fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Thursday afternoons in the outside, downstairs, music and kid filled Festive. A Festive it is with music by Robert and the band. Dancing and hula hoops by Bham and the kids. Plus great beer, brats, burgers, and rings. Rain or shine, it is the perfect beginning to our Northwest weekends.

“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stopped in here during Beer Week and had lunch and a brew! Atmosphere was good and food was too! Inside/outside dining. We found meter parking right out front. Large restaurant with lots of space.
