A Very Special Place
Excellent food & service. Nice to see local ingredients(Lake Ariel buffalo)on menu. Buffalo meatballs my husband had were quite good. Looking forward to going back soon. Live piano music was nice but a bit loud,making conversation difficult.

A top notch restaurant in
A top notch restaurant in the Poconos. Food is generally good, but at times the food can be sub par when the restaurant is at full capacity. This is rare but it has happened to me on a few occasions and each time the restaurant has been full. In all it is worth the try. I will go back.

Settlers is usually a very
Settlers is usually a very warm ,quiet place to dine.We had company visiting and they had heard about Settlers and wanted to try it.We made reservations for an early dinner 5:45 pm on a saturday evening. The restaurant was completely full,the strange thing was that it was so incredibly loud.It was louder then any cafeteria i've been in.We could not hear our freinds speaking and we were literally yelling at each other.There also must have been a party downstairs,because our chairs and feet were vibrating the whole time. Everything was good but the noise factor.

We were overall pleased with our visit to Settlers Inn. My spouse had onion soup and salmon and enjoyed both. I had a salad special and NY Strip steak. Salad was very good. The steak was OK. Service was great.
Beer & wine selection were excellent.
Prices are high.
The place is pretty inside and out. The DR did have a funny smell when first arriving. After a while we did not notice it.
The noise level was high when the dining room was full, but became much better as the room thinned out. There were a few 6-8 people groups which caused the high level.

My husband and I ate a fabulous dinner at Settlers. The duck wontons were excellent as were the entrees (salmon and tuna). The dessert was also super yummy (especially the coconut fritters), but we should have shared one. I enjoyed a flight of wine with dinner.

My fiancé and I visited the
My fiancé and I visited the settlers inn for dinner Monday night after we arrived at our get away home in Hawley. We decided to give this place a try based on the reviews on yelp, and we were beyond satisfied with our dinning experience. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. We were so happy with the settlers inn that we decided to visit again for lunch. The lunch experience was a bit different. Although the food was great, the service was slow. Our waitress seemed lost and confused, and we we waited 15-20 minutes for our check after we had informed our waitress that we were in a rush.
Overall, the food was delicious and dinner was wonderful, and we will be back again.

Amazing food - not only delicious, but also unusual and creative

I really enjoyed not only decor (huge arts and crafts fan) but food wine and service were excellent.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had another great evening for a dinner for two. They also had a few couples in groups of 4 and 6 people.

Superb Dinner on the Patio
My wife, our two college age daughters and I dined on the patio Wednesday evening. The view of the garden was wonderful from our table on the covered deck, and the limited number of tables with adequate spacing made for a relaxing and comfortable setting. The service was prompt and friendly but not instrusive or over-bearing, and our server was able to answer our questions and make recommendatons when asked. We enjoyed excellent appetizers, wine, entrees, dessert and coffee for a very reasonable price. Favorite dishes included the flank steak with a soy-based glaze and the farm chicken. All very fresh and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to enjoy a special meal.

Destination Restaurant in PA
What a find. Inside is a lovely Victorian interior of a small hotel and the hostess greeted us warmly. It was early (6:30) and we were able to get a table on their veranda outdoors, and they have a beautiful "Monet garden" outside with a beautiful path and sitting areas. Service was a bit slow, but fortunately we were not in a rush and the food was delicious. They emphasize local produce and meats. The salad tasted super fresh with a delicious dressing, and an appetizer of fried goat cheese was excellent. Chicken Roulade with succotash and edamame was served over mozzarella and tomatoes with pesto, and snapper was served with coconut curry over brown rice. Too full for desert, by the time we left, the veranda filled up too.

Vanilla Creme Brule
The Vanilla Crème Brule was the best I have had in recent memory.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is very rare that I clean my plate or get a dessert afterwards, but each and every time I visit this place, it is exactly what I do. The food is that good!! The proportions are genrous but not overwhelming and the quality for price is just unmatched by any other place in the area. This is definitely top notch cuisine. The Inn is beautiful and makes for a unique dining experience.

a surprise gem in the mountains
We were directed to the Settlers Inn by relatives who live locally. Fresh seasonal food which was well-prepared and well-presented.
We were traveling with guests from Florida, and we live in Virginia, so it was nice to be able to take them somewhere where we wouldn't be surprised in a negative way. We didn't stay at the Inn but it appeared to be a very pleasant experience for those who were guests there. There is an interesting history to the Inn which is always appealing to those of us who are history buffs.

special dinner 18 1/2 yr anniver
we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of dining at Settlers Inn. We first toured the grounds making special note of the lovely flowers and meticulous landspacing. We thne settled in for a wonderful dinner. I had the grilled salmon and my wife had the chicken breast. Both were well prepared and gave us quite a taste sensation with all the various items that were paired together in each dish. They were very tasty and done to just the right level. The salmon was flaky yet still juicy and the chicken was done but not overdone and rubbery. The desserts were great; creme brulee and chocolate mousse. The waiter even followed up on going "off menu" for plain creme brulee versus honey lemon creme brulee.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very high prices so we expect a lot
the martinis were not prepared as per request. they were practically at room temperature. should have been shaken and served quite chilly
pasta and scallops: the pasta was overcooked and gooey but the dish was still awesome okay!
If you are going to serve coffee options that are presented as high end you need to know your coffee. You presented two roasts and their flavor but the waitress could not tell me the roast. I asked for a medium ie city to city+ roast and she had no idea what I was talking about. I then asked for her to pick the one with the mildest roast and I ended up with something that was more of a vienna roast really just shy of French roast.
Great waitress. Food was wonderful otherwise and nice atmosphere.

My wife and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary at the Settler's Inn. The food was spectacular and the service second to none. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes great food in a romantic setting.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
For many years I have dined in what is considered 'the best' in the Pocono area and a few of them have been great in the past but are now either changed or out of business. However, the Settlers Inn has been consistently excellent. Atmosphere and service couldn't be better and the food has always been great including the meals (we) had recently. I wish we lived closer - we'd be regulars!! I/we highly recommend it.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still one of our favorites
We have been coming to the Settlers Inn for more than 15 years now. Though we don't come every year, we are happy that it has only gotten better over the years. The food was phenomenal and the charm of the Inn continues to pull us back again and again. It was worth every penny. Looking forward to our next visit.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the Settler's Inn on the recommendation a friend. We were not disappointed. The goat cheese appetizer was delightful. The baked onion soup was the best I've had in quite some time. My wife had the salmon. I had the chicken breast. Both were excellent. We tried the chef's dessert sampler which had several really nice items. I thought the creme brulee WAS the best I've had. Overall the composition of the dishes made for a truly excellent dining experience.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had a great dinner with my two brothers and their wives. Excellent soup and appetizers. Spectacular salad and filet mignon done to perfection.

One Fabulous Restaurant
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at The Settlers Inn. We had been to the restaurant before for another special occasion (my birthday). I share this because they really do special occasions so well. We thought the restaurant was fabulous on that occasion, and we were not disappointed this time either. Everything about Settlers Inn is spot on perfect. From the warm ambience of the room to the excellent wait staff to the bartender who can make almost any cocktail one can conjure up and of course to the fabulous food, The Settlers Inn has it all in our opinion. You cannot get a bad meal here. Everything is fresh and delicious and presented beautifully. I had scallops (real ones) and my wife had shrimp, all cooked to perfection.

Honeymoon Special Stop
We went to the Settlers Inn on our honeymoon in Oct 2013. The service was excellent and they even gave us a free dessert when they found out we were newlyweds. The food was great and cooked perfectly. They had a lot of beautiful old wood work and the decor was classy. Highly recommend for any romantic dinner, or special occasion.

25th wedding anniversary
My husband and I had a very romantic 25th wedding anniversary celebration at The Settlers Inn. Our meal was delightful from beginning to end. We received a complimentary champagne toast which set the tone for a delicious meal. The service was impeccable. In addition to dinner we stayed at the Inn and had breakfast. It was so refreshing to be serviced and eat at a very leisurely pace.The atmosphere was perfect no detail was spared. We can't wait to return and spoil ourselves again. Thank you.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience.
Let me start with finding the restaurant online. It had great reviews as a matter of fact I don't think I've seen anyone that said something that's not good about this place.
So Friday (my birthday) came and voila! I was right about my choice! The place is so Romantic. Low lights, no kids around, a staff by the bar greeting everyone that comes in.
The menu(a la carte) was awesome that night. I had Salmon on a bed of bokchoy and my bf had the Delmonico steak that was grilled to perfection. Wine selection is like a diner menu. Too many fine wines, liquors and beers to choose from.
We had an awesome dining experience. We will definitely go back and recommend this place.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was not my first time eating at Settlers Inn for lunch. My Mom lives in Hawley about 6 miles from the Resturant. When I visit her during the day we have made it a point to have lunch at Settles. To be honest, it's a great way to spend a few hours. We typically enjoy a glass of one of their varied wines, then work our way slowly through a delicious soup, all fresh "homegrown ingrediances" on to a very creatively prepared entre, whatever it might be it's been consistently tasty. Finally, we split a yummy desert or two just because we need a taste, they are all excellent. We have never been disappointed. The wait staff are friendly, attentive, and have never rushed us through the meal.

My filet and the celery root
My filet and the celery root mashed potatoes were absolutely delicious! My husband loved the salmon as well. The service, atmosphere and food all combined for a wonderful dining experience. We stayed overnight at the Inn -- it was lovely and we plan to return soon!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A gastroniomic delight!
Once again, the Settlers Inn out did itself. I had the Venison and it was outstanding (I'm a venison junkie too), my Fiancé had the tenderloin and also stated it was perfect. The sides were ample and flavorful and did not out-perform the entrée. The service was terrific with our waiter ever attentive to our meal and offered a suggestion for the wine pairing which we gladly agreed to.
I highly recommend Settlers Inn for any occasion, but especially for the romantic encounters.

Celebrating Wedding Anniversery
We have gone to Settlers Inn for several years now to celebrate our anniversary, a very special occasion for just the two of us. We have never been disappointed with the food and service. There is a special touch this time of year with a lot of very cleverly carved pumpkins that added to the ambiance. We will go at other times but I am sure we will be back to celebrate our next wedding anniversary at Settlers. We live in the Main Line area of Philadelphia with a lot of great dining but there is no Restaurant just like
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This past weekend we unanimously scored our experience at the Settlers as a perfect ten!
The Inn was beautifully decorated with masterfully carved and lit pumpkins. After pre dinner gasses of well chosen wine at the bar we were seated at our reserved time. The service at this place is very friendly and attentive. You are not overwhelmed with menu items, however, the choices are seasonal and creative. The spacing between appetizer, entrée and desert was perfect. The wine list is quite good and doesn't require a trip to the bank. The presentation of the entrée was quite enticing and the food was just downright delicious. The piano player was excellent and did not take a break.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed every moment of our experience at Settlers Inn. The Inn itself is just beautiful & was all decked out with festive jack o'laterns for Halloween. I had mentioned we were celebrating my husband's birthday in my comments when I made the reservation; every member of the wait staff shared birthday greetings, quietly & tastefully, as they interacted with us. The food was remarkable, living up to all the reviews we've read. And the piano player, Stan, provided non-stop entertainment with an impressive repertoire from show tunes & movie classics to Queen & Lady Gaga! Delightful from beginning to end! I would and already have highly recommended Settlers Inn to family, friends & anyone looking for a really special evening out.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our 25 anniversary and it was a superb experience. This Inn/Restaurant is quaint, cozy and magical. The service was fantastic (Sean), the food and the drinks were delicious, the atmosphere was very romantic and magical and the details( card, chocolates, champagne were unique. We could not chose a better place to celebrate such an special occasion!! We will have the memory of this dinner forever.

My husband and I tried this restaurant on the occasion of our anniversary. Neither of us had ever been here before. It was absolutely perfect in every way. Food, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding.

Wonderful tapas-style food, friendly staff, beautiful setting both inside and out. What more could you ask for?
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our dinner at the Settler's Inn. The food was excellent and the service was great. The only complaint would be the noise level. The restaurant had a romantic feel that was ruined by the fact that we had to shout to hear each other. I would recommend this restaurant to friends a family.......just on a slower night with less noise.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This historic place looked more like something you'd find in the west than in the Pocono's, but it is charming with chunky wooden chairs and tables covered with a bamboo mat. The menu is filled with seasonal favorites combined in creative ways. Service was attentive without being rushed or overdone. I thought it was a romantic atmosphere, although the couple next to us were reading their Kindles during dinner! Go figure. It's a little pricey, but great for a vacation splurge or a special occasion. Nice wine list too.

Saturday night bogey
I am a frequent diner at the Settler's and love it. This past Saturday though, their usual reliable "par for the course" of exceptional dining hiccupped a bit on the service/ambiance level. Service staff appeared overwhelmed, I'm not sure if they were short-handed or the kitchen was slow. The big issue was the piano player, ouch, ruined our meal. Played such great dining tunes like the theme's to Batman, Gilligan's Island and others, a spirited rendition of Wipeout, that had people playing it on their tabletops, and even some rock n roll where singing along was encouraged. While song selection was not consistent with the dining experience, the biggest issue was his noise level, not background but too loud to even talk over.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The most memorable sea bass I have enjoyed in the past 20 years.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We loved both staying at and dining at settlers. It lived up to its reputation. Especially good are its bread, and it's safe rubbed chicken. So good that we ended up eating it again on Sunday after first having it on Friday. Definitely a memorable weekend (we got engaged this weekend!) and great meal to help make it a fantastic weekend.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Though it was very busy, things rang like clockwork. Our reservation was honored on time, the service was brisk and friendly, and the food was terrific.

Best Food in Northeastern PA!
The Settlers Inn never disappoints. If you are looking for a fine dining experience you can't go wrong at the Settlers. The food is fantastic and they try and use local farm raised produce and animals. The atmosphere is beautiful. They had a piano player who was creative and lots of fun to listen to. The wine list is second to none. We were here for Thanksgiving and the meal was perfect. We have been many times and the menu is always great. I highly recommend a visit!
