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.

    We will definitely come back!!!! Everyone loved it!!! The only thing I could suggest is... Give a bigger portion of mashed potatoes for the Bangers and Mash....the other orders portions were fantastic, and it failed in comparison. Great flavour but not enough. Considering also it had no sides! Or maybe offer sides with it, if you can't upsize. Thankyou

    I remember why I never come here. 36 min wait just for our drinks. The people to the left of us just left because of the wait. Our food was almost mediocre at best. I will say the mac and cheese was the best thing at the table. Fish tacos were very bland. Nachos were stale. The waitress is absolutely clueless, it’s almost comical. I truly hope this is just a training issue. 2 hours of my life I will never get back.

    5pm reservation but already out of the entree and dessert I wanted. The meatloaf was a disappointment, like two flattened hamburger patties, rather than a loaf. Not much mashed potatoes with it. Also thought for Mother’s Day might have been nice to have some decorations, even just a flower on the table. Not impressed with food or ambience.

    We came for the Easter Brunch. Our time slot was towards the end of brunch, and it was awful. The hot food was cold. The cold food was bad. Everything was a mess (chafing dishes dirty/ falling apart) and half the items they listed on the menu were no longer available. $35 for a plate of old food. Very disappointed. Let me note… they weren’t even busy. I would give them a little more of a break if it was busy. I was actually shocked how dead it was too. Never again.

    Boundary Bay Brewery & BistroResponded on April 28, 2022Thanks so much for leaving an honest review. We missed our goal of exceeding your expectations for your family’s Easter Brunch. We can imagine how frustrating it is to have a poor experience with your family, especially on a special day. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We'll use your feedback to make our upcoming events special from start to finish. We would love to contact you personally to make things right. Let us know the best way to reach out to you, or email us directly.

    Best food we have ever had in Bellingham, and one of the best in Washington in general. 10/10 every time we visit. Highly recommend the pear grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese & all the burgers. On the same note, all the local on-tap beer and ciders are awesome too.

    Made a reservation. Someone walked in and just sat down while we stood there with a reservation. We were seated late. Table was near the bathroom. Waited 20 minutes and still no waitress. I understand staffing shortages, but she walked by is several times with no acknowledgement. We requested to get moved to the bar. That waitress in the bar was attentive and took care of us. The food was lackluster. My wife's french dip beef was dry. My mashed potatoes were dry and lacked flavor. Pretty disappointing overall. Next time we will eat at Aslan.

    Others in my party were happier with their meal choice than I was. I sent mine back to be warmed up ( yam enchilada). Flavors were ok. Tried the red ale and it was great. Service was very friendly and prompt.

    We arrived at 6 on St Patrick's Day and had a great table where we didn't feel crowded, and had a great view of the music and dancers. The beer's ALWAYS good, and the corned beef and cabbage was just like Ma used to make!

    We came for their St. Patrick's Day lunch and festivities. The food was Irish-themed and very good, as was the Irish Red Ale I had. We thoroughly enjoyed the young Irish dancers who performed. Great place to go for St. Patrick's Day!

    Excellent pub fair and more. The ale is brewed on premises and is one of my fave breweries. Love the Cedar Dust and the Hazy Dust IPAs. This reservation was on St Patrick’s Day so complimentary soda bread was offered and the band Devillees played. Awesome time! Great vibe.
