Thank you for reviewing McMillin's Dining Room! We hope you enjoyed your time dining with us and are glad the food was good and service attentive. Sure is a great spot to watch spend the evening and take in the sunset over the marina. Cheers!

Its a beautiful, if touristy, area- but the great views and wonderful boats in the marina are compensation. We had a beet salad - husband loved it - and I had the avocado and shrimp which was absolutely delicious. Good service and view too.More

Roche Harbor is perhaps the finest marina on the West Coast of the United States. As a destination resort, the dining options are limited, and McMillin's is the only "formal" restaurant. We'll usually dine at McMillin's at least once each time we take the boat...More

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.
