Excellent food in a quaint location
Very good food with a pleasant view in a quaint location. Facing into the setting sun it got quite warm! (They are working on replacing their awnings.)

Sally 's Birthday
It was a lovely experience all around. The food was very special. An overall beautiful experience for our birthday girl and Campfire Girl reunion last night on the island.

Beautiful Setting - Delicious Food!
We were seated by the window by a member of the waitstaff who greeted us as if we were old friends, even though it was our first visit. Our table over-looked the beautiful marina at Roche Harbor resort. We ordered a four course option and another entree with the intention of sharing the "taste," appetizer and salad. From the pea & bacon souffle, crab and artichoke dip and Maytag blue cheese salad, to our sumptuous seafood entrees (Seafood Saute and Crab-stuffed Halibut), everything was delightful! There was no issue with us sharing the "extra" courses - our waiter even teased us a little! Unfortunately, we were both too full for dessert! Because people often come from their boats, there isn't a dress code.

The corner table looking out over a quiet harbor near sunset was perfect for a romantic anniversary dinner...it was a mid-week evening after the holiday weekend, so the restaurant was not full of visiting boaters who might have changed the ambience we experienced...the scallops and locally-grown lamb were delicious and the complimentary dessert was a nice surprise...service was friendly and attentive...McMillin's and the Roche Harbor Resort will see us again for special occasions.

Great food, great service
For steak lovers, I ordered medium rare, but the steak came rare. Easy to send back for 2 minutes on each side, which did the trick.

Beat my expectations
I had read other reviews about McMillan's before making reservations, and even though the reviews were all positive, I was still skeptical whether the food would be good enough to justify the prices. Now that we have eaten here, I can safely say it was totally worth it an we will go back the next time we go to Roche Harbor. When we were there, they had changed the menu to a tasting menu which I thought was great. We ordered an appetizer, salad, entree and dessert, and didn't leave feeling like we might explode. The tenderloin and salmon entrees were some of the best we've had. Everything was delicious, I would highly recommend.

Gone to a tasting menu
Mcmillan's is one of our favorite spots at Roche. They have gone to a tasting menu smaller portions.which is fine if you would like to order appetizers, salad and desserts.Be aware the entree portion is is only 3 oz. which is small. The sides are small also. 3 asparagus and tablespoon of potato.The first time we visited they were offering one lamb chop as the lamb of the evening.. They have redeem themselves and at this visit and had a rack of lamb to offer. Which had a few fingerlings potatoes to accompany it. If you want full portions you need to look at the back of the menu where they offer prime rib and steaks. It is unfortunate that they don't offer larger fish portions. I wish they offered a better selection of salads also.

The prime rib and scallop
The prime rib and scallop dishes are exceptional. We always like to end our boating trips with a visit to this restaurant.

Roche Harbor Dining
Six Girlfriends have been to Roche Harbor for 24 years and dine at McMillins every year to enjoy Colors and a great meal. They were accommodating for giving us our favorite window table. Seafood Mix and the Scallops were great. Lamb special was on a very small plate with small portions and it wasn't that good. Prime Rib wasn't real tender and only half was eaten. Oyster and Mussel appetizers were ordered and were delicious. We corked a wine and purchased a bottle. Our waiter added a Rum drink in to our bill, which we caught. Overall great view, seafood is good and we will be back. Best Bloody Mary's ever and they are a tradition at Roche Harbor for Six Girl Friends making a yearly escape.

Lovely end to NW boating vacation
For many years we have re-entered the US at Roche Harbor and celebrated another happy boat vacation with dinner at McMillan's timed to coincide with the striking of the colors ceremony. We have always enjoyed ourselves and the food was good, if not memorable. This year we found they had changed the menu and the food was outstanding. They were especially gracious about making sure our part of six had a window table and we had wonderful service from our server, Kerry.

Sunset at McMillans
Five of us (3 children and 2 adults) enjoyed a fine meal after spending a few hours zip lining. The food was amazing and while we had 3 children (one picky eater, one vegetarian and one gluten free) there was something for everyone!

Wonderful dining experience
McMillans is always a great place for a meal, overloooking the habor. They have changed their menu to include many small plates so diners can sample the many good choices on the menu. We really enjoyed this change.

Go To in the San Juan Islands
After not having been to Roche Harbor in nearly a decade, MacMillans was a real treat. The Prime Rib was excellent and the serving size is ample. The smaller potions on the Chef Tasting Menu were nice, however, they were quite small and certainly did not reflect the $. I would love to see a Chef Tasting Menu along with normal size entree offerings - like they have with the Prime Rib. Overall, MacMillans is an excellent option when in Roche Harbor and we will DEFINITELY return.

Pleasurable and Memorable Dining
McMillin's has the same charm and special ambiance that it did 40 years ago when I worked here as a teenager. The staff was friendly and professional. The food was amazing and affordable. My husband had the prime rib - said it was the best he's ever had. He had theknife and fork caesar salad that provided some comic relief when pieces flew off his plate. I had the fresh halibut and bleu cheese salad. Our wait person Kerry recommended outstanding wines to complement our meals. A special anniversary warm triple chocolate with ice cream dessert arrived at the end of our meal. Nice touch guys! The view of the Marina from our table is unlike any other marina view. Roche Harbor is a very special place that needs to be experienced and cherished.
