Great place to eat! Reasonable prices with large portions and good service. We sat outside on the patio with a view of the marina. Be sure to walk through the marina while you're there to see some amazing boats. The little village of Roche Harbor is quaint and fun to stroll around

I was treated to a wonderful meal at McMillans. I was very much looking forward the mushroom basket and the prime rib which I was told was off the charts. I was a little disappointed in the fact that we had made a reservation in person for 8:00 and had requested a window seat. When we arrived we were treated... More

I was very impressed with this restaurant. My expectations were already high based on the reviews, but, they somehow made our dining experience one of the best. The Prime Rib was the best I can remember having. My Sis in Law said that the rack of lamb was also spectacular. I was also very enchanted with a reasonably priced Petit... More

We were a group of 6 and we started with the crab dip and it was good. All our meals were good but the small plates were pretty small and ok for smaller appetites. I had the lamb and asked for it medium and it was more well done and a little chewy but still good. All the veggies and... More

Mcmillans at Roche Harbor is a lovely and friendly restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was good although I thought a crab salad was overpriced for the amount of crab it presented. The setting overlooks the marina and interesting docks.

Love this place! Great fresh food, fun atmosphere, wonderful views of the harbor. The service staff are well trained and very friendly. Lots of offerings on the menu, reasonably priced considering the lovely setting. I sometimes drive out from Friday Harbor just to have a salad and glass of wine.

We loved the steak, lamb chops, crab salad, avocado and crab salad. There are several dining options within the building so if the wait is long in one area, go to the upstairs bar/restaurant.
