In the low season you only have one choice for dinner in Roche Harbor, McMillan's,but it is a good one!... The food was very good. The tab can be a bit pricey since everything is described as a small plate so you end up ordering several items. We had the mushroom flat bread which was wonderful. The halibut was also... More

I am not a foodie, I don't take pictures of the stuff I eat, but I can cook a meal and I know what food should taste like, and this food is the absolute worst. I don't know what everyone else is raving about but the protein portions are too small, all too lean, all to much bone, over cooked... More

This is our go to choice for special occasions, The view is lovely. The new menu with "small plate" choices is great. I think the prime rib is the best!

Pricey but the ambience, service and flavor of local, organic cuisine is worth the price. We come here every year, off-season and never disappointed.

This is my second visit. I really like the new menu. Ordered a steak off the "small plates" section and it was just the perfect size! My sister had the wild salmon with risotto and she love it. The service and view were great, and of course the meal was delicious! Even ordered some creme brule to top it off!

We enjoyed dinner at this restaurant on New Year's Day, our first visit to this particular dining room in several years. We found it very much improved over any of our prior visits. The restaurant is the fine dining choice at a cherished and iconic resort in the San Juan Islands, Roche Harbor Resort. Our family has been coming to... More

We had great hopes for this restaurant based on the positive reviews, but alas it must have been too good to be true. We saw on their website that they offered a 4, 5 or 7 course chef's tasting menu and we were quite excited about that. But, the waitress told us they no longer do that. Instead you get... More

My (now) fiancé booked a weekend at Quarryman Hall for us and I decided to propose to her at dinner. I called the managers of the hotel and McMillan's Dining room to help set up a surprise proposal. Everyone there really went the extra mile to make this go better than I ever imagined. I felt that the entire island... More

If you are on the island, Do yourself a favor and go up to Roche Harbor. It is a beautiful village with a lot of history. McMillan's wasn't originally where we were headed for dinner but we are so thankful to have ended up there. It was truly one of the THE best meals I have EVER had. The menu... More
