We love to have dinner here whenever we visit the island. Beautiful view, flavorful meals and exceptional service. I went with the Special of Alaskan Scallops with bacon risotto and broccoli. Unbelievable! The chef accommodated my request to omit the goat cheese in the risotto....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

We had the lamb and the salmon. Both big portions and good. Not excellent, but decent. You are paying for the view and the service. It was hard to find. Our GPS misdirected us and then we had to walk down the hill. The restaurant...More

1. Consider asking for a booth when you make a reservation. The window tables are nice but the late afternoon sun is pretty bright and can be hot. The booths are more comfortable and preferred by some locals who know what boats look like. 2....More

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

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.
