Boundary Bay often makes the short list for top breweries in the U.S., I can see why. Their beer selection is plentiful and each offering can stand as a tough competitor in its class. The food is also very good; but just don't expect miracles. The food selection is appropriate for "pub fare". No scenery however, but that just gives... More

Perfect setting for a cool summer evening, with outdoor seating and live folk music. The dishes we had were excellent with the fish cooked exactly as we asked for.

Stopped in for dinner when passing through Bellingham. Great casual spot and excellent outdoor seating area. Had the chowder and the mussels and both were very good. Efficient service and good value.

Post Tour de Whatcom (103 mile bike ride) refreshment Tried the IPA and Bellingham Blonde - both were very tasty and the outdoor with shade area was perfect on a hot summer day. Only regret was they were out of the larger sizes of their cycling jersey which would have made a great souvenir

This a good choice for families or couples with inside and outside seating. Located adjacent to the farmers market and near to the Bellingham downtown area. This time we shared a salmon pizza and the usual crafted beer

The food is amazing and local. The recipes are incredible - literally cannot go wrong ordering even the most unusual sounding item. The beers are amazing-personally the Scottish Stout is my favorite (dark chewy beers are a personal favorite -yummy!) Pleasant casual atmosphere, good waitresses, love to go here and forget my day.

Bellingham is so lucky to have Boundary Bay as one of the several downtown breweries which offers a full menu of great beer and food. We enjoyed the outdoor deck overlooking the beer garden. On this warm summer evening, we also go to hear the live country band playing in the beer garden.

Great food and beer. Outside and bar seating areas are upbeat and fun. The dining room reminds me of a German beerhaus, however, the acoustics in the room (high ceilings?) makes conversation for larger groups really difficult.

Excellent stew & the real Bangers and Mash! Funky and fun atmosphere with really good food, music and a place for the whole family. Good beer and reasonably priced food :-)

I had a sampler of beers, which is the way to go with so many beers brewed on location. I had smoked salmon chowder and salad, which was very good. If I was there for dinner, they had lots of really good choices. If I had more time I would have gone back.

Thank FlaHockeyFan

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.
