Great place to eat at the marina. The food is very good as is the service. The views are also great with a very nice outdoor seating area.

We had an excellent dinner at Madrona Bar and Grill at Roche Harbor Resort. It shares a kitchen with the fancier Mitchell's upstairs so we had the benefit of the food, with a more casual ambiance. We sat outside with heaters, which kept us plenty warm. Looking out over the marina is beautiful. Our food was excellent, and the carrot... More

I am very pleased with this place from the service to the food, the ambiance and location. Excellent restaurant! During our meal it began to drizzle on the patio but we couldn't tell it was raining because of the big table umbrellas they have set up and it stayed plenty warm even on the chilly evening because of their patio...

We had better food on the island at a few places but when you factor in the price and the location, this was by far the best deal on the island. Watching the harbor and the end of the day flag ceremony was special. When the weather is nice, it is worth the wait for an outside table. Also, they... More

We visited San Juan Island for the day and are certainly glad we stopped here for lunch. We were afraid there would be quite a wait but we were immediately seated at an outside table overlooking the harbor. It was a beautiful day and the view is fabulous. With such a beautiful location, we would still have been satisfied if... More

Got to go order for 5. The place was busy, but reasonably fast. The food was good, but the portions a little small. It would be great to eat onsite the views are stunning and the history of the site fascinating. Worth the drive from Friday Harbor.

We just had dinner. The food here is great, but it is not low cost ether. It seems that Roche Harbor has a monopoly. Most servers are friendly here, but our server was not that friendly. I guess you win some and loose some. The food was good, and we would come back. You cannot beat the setting and the... 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.
