We stayed in Roche Harbor for 3 nights in shoulder season, in late September, and McMillin's was the only place open for dinner - the alternatives had already closed after the summer season, leaving a drive to Friday Harbor as your other choice. So we ate there for three nights in a row. The meats are cooked well, but the... More

Even though we were told that they had lots of reservations and it would be difficult to get a window seat, when we showed up at 7:00 on a Sunday night there were plenty of window seats available. The wine selection was good and the wait staff could not have been more pleasant. The salads were excellent. Our disappointment came... More

We had dinner here on our 20th anniversary, and it was a lovely evening all around. My husband had the late summer salmon, which he enjoyed greatly, and I had the local lamb special that was delicious. Our waiter, Samin, was attentive, helpful, and not intrusive. The venue is beautiful. After dinner we had drinks in the bar and enjoyed... More

Fabulous ambiance and superb service from the top with management "Jori" all the way to Shallon the goddess that took care of our happiness. Ah, the prime rib and lamb chops were six stars. Thank you for a fantastic evening and being able to accommodate us without a reservation. Cheers

Elegant dining in a beautiful surrounding! The views of the harbor are amazing, the food is on point and the service is impeccable. We had the 40 day aged prime rib and it is without doubt the best i have ever had and i love food. It's such a relaxing environment and can also be very romantic with that special... More

I am usually hesitant to review a restaurant based on one visit but we had such an outstanding experience the other night, that I felt it was worth giving them the kudos they deserve. It was a beautiful evening and we first watched the flag lowering at the dock before meandering our way into dinner. We were seated promptly at... More

Always eat here when we stay at the marina. Service is always excellent, food is either excellent or good. Not cheap but what do you expect at a top resort.

We had a great table with nice view. Food was very good, prime rib and salmon entrees. Crab bisque and Blue cheese salad appetizers, both solid. Rosemary Manhattan was a nice twist on old favorite. Service was okay. We felt somewhat rushed. Asked for food order without asking if we wanted drinks. Gave less than detailed dessert menu. Heard waitress... More

It felt much like dining in a country club with old style decorations and decor. We enjoyed our meal and service. Great view out over the water but depending on the time of day it can be very sunny.

An Island-Certified-Local restaurant with fresh products from local waters and fields, this classic dining option is a wonderful place to celebrate the best of Roche Harbor. If you can't decide from our sizable seasonal menu, you might settle on our house specialty, a 40-day aged prime rib. The Wine Spectator award-winning wine list is abundant in NW selections to give you the taste of place we're so fortunate to live in.
