Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro
Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro in Bellingham, Washington is independently owned and operated. Since 1995, this eatery and brewery has gained popularity by serving fresh beer and food made from local ingredients. Adding to its character is the fact that Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro is housed inside a historic warehouse that was built in 1922. During nice weather, the deck is open and there is also a beer garden that is used for barbequing and enjoying outdoor concerts.
Aside from the amazing beer at Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro, the food here is great too. There is hummus, chips and salsa, Bavarian pretzels, three different kinds of nachos and an incredible pulled pork sandwich.

Always good food and service. Funk band was great during dinner.
Food was ok, but we would likely not return. My wife loved her Harvest Salad with the Salmon add-on. I was much less impressed with the pan fried wings. The wings were quite meaty, but somewhat underdone. My Caesar salad was hohum.
Perfect temperature, outside on the balcony overlooking the beer garden with a very good Irish band playing. Great beer, excellent food.
This is the first time this have ever happened and I have been eating at Boundary Bay since 2007. The chips for out Everything Nachos were a bit stale.
Great beer. Ceaser salad had way too much dressing.
3of us had the fish tacos which we enjoyed. My husband had the French dip which was so so. Dry bun even with the au jus and meat dry as well.
Way too noisy with the big band. We couldn’t converse.
Food was great. Vegan options. Beer was splendid. Something for everyone. A must if you are in Bellingham.
We went on Friday. They had music in the back so sitting on the patio was the perfect spot!
Boundary Bay is always a good choice! They can very very busy as they are a popular Bellingham dining spot so it is great to be able to make a reservation! Very pleasant servers and nice meal choices. We had wanted the Friday fish fry but with the smoke conditions we wanted to eat in so it wasn't available. We were able to make other delicious choices! Always a winner.
Usually busy at peak times but making a reservation is a good way to go especially if you want to sit outside. They have done a great job during the pandemic.
The food here is amazing. So many great options for vegetarians. The music from the beer garden was really fun. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Reuben sandwich was amazing as were the chowder and salads! Our server was excellent as was the host. So fun!
Overall I think this was a good meal -- I know there is a worker shortage so our server was overworked and inattentive. I don't blame her but it definitely put a damper on enjoyment. We didn't get refills of water or pop nor was asked if we wanted another beer.
couldn’t hold a conversation, it would have been perfect off the music was just a little softer. We went to the skate park afterwards and it sounded like the music was being piped in there.
SUPER noisy, no air conditioning, food was very bland and service was very slow. Definitely need to add items to menu, fries etc.. for the cost of entrees it should include more options. Will not be returning.
True Bellingham vibe.
There was some confusion at the host station about our reservation, but a more experienced staff member arrived and fixed things. Service was good, food good. It was trivia night in another part of the restaurant, but the volume was loud enough that when the trivia host was talking we just waited to resume our conversation. Still a must-visit every time we’re in town.
Nice outdoor deck, live music often in the beer garden.
Good food for a reasonable price. Friendly service.
Awesome beer, food and service- will come back for sure!
The food was fantastic! And the beer was great too! They had live music and the venue had a lot of energy. Definitely felt a sense of normalcy in this COVID times. We will definitely be going back.
Nice attitudes, pleasant people at other tables, good simple food. Definitwelty recommend, will go there again.
I should be able to order and receive another beer before my first beer is done.
Never disappointed at Boundary.
Terrible service basics overshadowed what was supposed to be a fun family gathering. The server genuinely looked annoyed the whole evening. She had probably too many tables to wait upon inside and out. But she was incredibly abrupt. She never asked if anyone wanted another drink or anything else. Her unhappiness was palpable
What happened to this place? It used to be so good with friendly service. It's gone beyond down hill. It took us over an hour to get our food, so long that we ended up getting it boxed to go, which wasn't worth it. Worst ruben I've ever had, dry meat and slapped together with no meat on one side of the sandwich. We came on Father's day at 11:30 and it wasn't even that crowded. We have kids so waiting an hour plus for food is not an option for us. We will not go back as I've heard from others since going that they too have had similar experiences.
Food outstanding especially the green salad. IPA, as usual tasty
One of our orders was served so late the rest in our party were almost done with theirs. Only a little apology; they shouldn’t have charged for it. Food was not as good as we remembered.
Service was slow, food was very small portions for the price, and gnats were all over the place.
We live Boundary Bay Brewing. Everyone is friendly, and the food is always great.
Always a great place to dine with friends. Good food, nice ambiance.
I'm laughing as we didn't need a reservation. For the first hour of our lunch we were the only diners. Oh well. I'd return.
We had a great dinner with conversation thanks to the quiet environment.
always great service
Our first trip to Bellingham and this was our first stop! Great food, great beer flight.
Disappointed. Out of multiple menu items. Kitchen could not get the complete order out to the table at the same time. Wait staff was trying their best but for now I will say we will NOT be coming back.
It was my first time here and I decided to also bring my family who were visiting from out of town. The food was really good, but the service was a little slow (perhaps it was a busy evening) and some food items were not available from the menu that visit.
Overall good experience and will go back again in the future.
We enjoyed being able to eat outside on the covered back deck with the open ends. Good food, beer, and service.
A family whirlwind trip to Bellingham.
Great! Great! Great!
Great service, great food, great beer. Go here!
