A beautiful view over Roche Harbor and an eclectic menu to choose from. Seafood, steak and pasta. Service was excellent and timely. We really enjoyed watching the sunset over the harbor!

After eating on a boat for many nights on end, it is so lovely to stop at a harbor for a real sit down meal. The restaurant at Roche Harbor is no exception and we had a great meal here on the 4th of July....More

At many remote resorts, your food choices are limited and lame. At Roche Harbor, you are limited--McMillins is it for a fine dinner--but it's anything but lame. The menu is varied, with some local and seasonal items mixed in with more traditional favorites (like prime...More

McMillans is located on a hill overlooking Roche Harbor, on the other side of San Juan island from Friday Harbor. Our taxi driver explained that Roche Harbor started as a "company town" devoted to extracting and transporting limestone. Some of the buildings from the 1800s...More

Food was terrific. Service was very good. Beautiful view of harbor from every table. Quite a bit outdated interior though.

Yes, it's the only nice dining option at Roche, but turns out it's not so nice. We chose an early dinner as our guests are in their late 70's. After we had ordered another party (of 6) arrived, already obnoxiously loud (and likely all drunk)....More

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.
