We really enjoyed this restaurant with lovely views of the marina, soft music and a relaxed atmosphere. The cocktail and wine choices were unusual and wonderful. I choose the three huge Prawns (from the Sea of Cortez) that were the largest we had ever seen....More

Located overlooking Roche Harbor marina and above more casual ground floor eatery, McMillin’s offers a fine dining choice while exploring San Juan island. Local seafood and lamb highlight menu. Not really a t-shirt/shorts place but not stuffy or formal either. Good selection of craft cocktails...More

Two of our party had the Top Sirloin. Although we usually order Medium-Rare (occasionally Medium) to get pink in the middle, at McMillan's, you have to order Medium-Well.

This restaurant could be great but misses the mark a little with the food which was good but not amazing. The views are awesome, especially during the colors ceremony. It is historic

Description
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.
