Brewery
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.

    I requested outdoor dining when I made reservations. We’re old! We still wear masks! We prefer outside! But when we (5 ppl) got there we were told outdoor dining is closed. We stayed but wore masks. If possible, sitting outside should not be offered on the reservation form 🙃

    Had a reservation for lunch for small business Saturday. Took half an hour to get a beer. Which feels like an eternity when you’re sitting with estranged family after Thanksgiving :)

    Never disappoints - wonderful service, great healthy food, amazing brews and now cocktails. Love the outdoor addition and the live music. Main dinning room needs some noise abatement ASAP. Otherwise, we never miss a chance to come enjoy this landmark establishment.

    Charming brewery style restaurant! I sat outside in their covered dining area, but there is also indoor dining. The servers were friendly and helpful and the food was yummy. I got the daily special soup, a vegetable medley, and the grilled salmon fillet. Both were full of flavor and filling meals. Their Oktoberfest beer was fantastic as well! Even more tasty than the real deal, in my opinion. Everything was well worth the price! Thank you for a lovely experience!

    We dined outdoors on a lovely October evening - I prefer the outdoor seating as it is noisy inside. Had my ususal, the yam enchiladeas - enjoy those quite a bit. We shared a hummus appetizer - very good hummus, doesn't taste like overly processed store bought and plenty of fresh veggies. Was good for five adults as a light appetizer. The service was good, the hosts are attentive and do a good job. Everyone else had a burger of some kind, the side potatoes were good (ate a couple of my dining partner's potatoes!). Nice place for a family dinner, nice mix of customers.

    Really, for a brew pub, the ingredients are local and fresh. The prices are amazingly low for portion size and food quality. Monday night, the musicians in the beer garden were fun and talented. We were up top on patio so could hear them, but not see the stage. Love the seasonal razz vice and could even buy a six pack to go. Waiter was solid, busy, so not the fastest service but why hurry when the weather, music, whole atmosphere do agreeable?

    Boundary Bay is a great place. Service was slow last night due to new bartender and maybe new or shorthanded cooks. But we were in no hurry so not a big problem. A tip: check what else is going on there to see how it will fit with your group. We were a group of friends who wanted to visit and catch up, so the loud rock band kept us from being able to do that comfortably. Should have suspected something like that on Friday night. Made for people who wanted to dance!

    This place is full of charm!! There is a taproom for the 21+ crowd, an outdoor beer garden, and a bistro for seating selection. The decor is somewhat Farmhouse Chic, with beautiful original artwork on the wall. The food was delicious. Lots of GF and Vegan selections available as well. Highly recommend!
