This place is a local hangout and its downtown location with great parking puts it squarely in the bustle. But, every time I've been there (which is about 5 times now, spread over years and seasons), I find that it's the beer and not the food that woos me. They are famous in the micro-brew capital of the U.S. for... More

The lamb burger is my all time favorite! Great selection of meals and awesome beer! Staff is friendly and lots of bands/activities throughout the year.

Had the salmon sandwich, which was stellar as well as a sampler of beer. Everything was very good and would recommend anyone to go to this location.

Damn good beers and food. I was surprised. Looked more like a hole-in-the-wall tavern but man those sandwiches and burgers were good! I'd recommend it...across the street from the outdoor market. Crowded and a good vibe.

Boundary Bay has awesome beer, their Scotch Ale is awesome. They have great seasonals also, but what they have over the competition is a full service resturaunt with great food, french dip is my favorite in town. Weekends they have awesome specials in the beer garden with live music like fish and chips on fridays and burgers on saturdays.

Great food choices, good service. Always busy and popular with locals. Free seating in the bar area, or reserved/wait tables in separate area are available. Prices are reasonable, and definitely worth it for the good quality food. Went twice in 1 week.

Despite it being a summer Friday afternoon, our family of four was seated fairly quickly. Young kids loved the macaroni, grapes, and carrot sticks. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious salad, chowder, and burger. Hubby liked his beer too. Attentive staff kept our glasses filled with water and checked on our food. Jovial atmosphere, not too loud, seems like... More
