There's a standing joke that the most common injury in this far northwestern corner of Washington state is a sprained little finger, caused by peoples' trying to lift their pinkies high enough to pass at Roche Harbor Resort. From yacht harbor to history, the place...More

Lively dining and drinking on a beautiful deck overlooking the very busy Roche Harbor Marina. We happened to be there Labor Day weekend and got to witness an elaborate Colors spectacle lowering the flags with music and finishing with the color guard doing flips into...More

No reservations, cafe-style eatery with outdoor terrace and inner bar and dining area. Lovely views over Roche Harbour but not much ambiance otherwise. Prompt service, average food rather bland. Highlight was the dusk ceremony of lowering the American flag.

Tasty food-, couldn't ask for better views but service was slow. Seemed like they were understaffed for the number of guests.

Nothing like a perfect sunny outdoor lunch right on the harbor, and Madrona is consistently my favorite. I'm a huge fan of the San Juan Valley Lamb Burger: so perfectly and uniquely flavorful! And you combine it with a Bloody Mary-you may never want to...More

We enjoyed a late lunch here after visiting Lime Kiln Point. The food was really good and you can't beat the view. Lovely day, and we enjoyed visiting the artisan tents after.

Very friendly service with a great atmosphere and excellent food. So many great choices on the menu. I would recommend trying a few appetizers to get a taste of it all ! My compliments to Chef Kelly.

Great food! View of the water. The Salmon BLT was superb. The service was great too. A lot of fun to watch the boats and yachts come and go as you eat.

Views of the water and of the formal gardens in Roche Harbor. Indoor seating in a quaint, octagonal dining room, and lots of outdoor seating, too. Staff was kind, but a little distracted. They take pride in their menu, with several interesting seafood options.

If memory serves me correctly there were very few vegetarian entrees. The only one I remember is the Caesar Salad.

We were there last Sunday for lunch and there would have been room for 8 if you arrived at noon. Next weekend may be busier as the island gets more summer visitors each week now. I suggest trying to get a reservation or... More

What better way to spend a summer afternoon than relaxing in this over-the-water restaurant dining on coastal-casual cuisine and sipping flavorful cocktails? The deck sits over harbor, offering diners the only sunset view over water on the island. Fresh salads, creative grill sandwiches and famous BBQ ribs are menu favorites.
