A word from The Settlers Inn
The Settlers Inn is a place to gather. The arts & crafts decor reflects our emphasis on simplicity & artistry. This commitment is also emphasized through our use of local organic farmers & producers. In the chef owned farm-to-table restaurant, our menu, breads & desserts are all hand-crafted to take advantage of the freshest fruits, vegetables, & herbs of the season. We believe our use of local products helps to continue the tradition of small farming in our community. Our bluestone fireplace entices guests to bask in the warmth of a crackling fire after a day of cross-country skiing, while Summer offers dining alfresco on the terrace.
The Chestnut Tavern offers guests a more casual atmosphere. The wine program is an integral part of the dining experience. Our wine list has received an award of excellence by Wine Spectator for eleven years.

Diner Reviews
  • "Always love when we go there. Always something different and delicious."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food was great as was the decor; table service was OK; bartenders were overworked which equates to slow. The place is far too noisy for any restaurant, let alone one on the pricy side."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This was our first time to this restaurant and we were blown away by the great service and food. Apparently they menu changes monthly so I can't wait to go back next month. The restaurant is 5 minutes down the street And with the location we definetely will go back"

  • "Poor service, noise deafening. Grouper was ok. Scallops were so salty throughout, almost in edible, but I was hungry from the long wait. They did takes them off the bill. Trout salas barely had any trout. Not really a positive experience. Maybe lunch would be good."

  • "I have been here many times, mostly winter. Took my wife there recently for a birthday dinner. Food was superb as we'll as the service. Beautiful gardens. Couldn't have been better."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Normally I would have given this place a better rating but I can't compared to the Posh Club we ate in the next day. The nicest part of the evening was the piano player and the wine. He was great! Food was good but not great and it really should be. We ate here about 20 years ago and it seemed to be better. There used to be a dess code but now some of the people are dressed nicely and others like slobs. If you want a high caliber restaurant you can't have people dressed in tee shirts and jeans and others in jackets. That's up to the restaurant. Not going back anytime soon."

  • "We stopped in here while o a trip to Pennsylvania . The food was fresh. The wine tasting was very good- a taste of 3 wines . I hadn't eggplant entree that was delicious and my hubby had the filet mignon which he enjoyed greatly. The service was prompt and courteous . The decor was wonderful- arts and crafts . This was a wonderful dining experience ."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed dinner. Food was served/presented beautifully and aesthetically. Food selections were artful as were the combinations and types of food together, such as chopped salad with chèvre mousse - delightful as was the zucchini lavender soup! There were a few glitches with the beer served, but server responded admirably. It appeared the server was very busy; however that did not detract from his seemingly genuine attention. Very much appreciate, value, and applaud the use of food from local farmers and artisan cheese makers, etc. Have been going to the Settlers Inn over a span of 20 years; this visit was the best and I can definitely see an overall finesse in their attention to detail, distinction, and fine dining."

  • " Upon entering this beautifully appointed historic inn and restaurant, We were immediately seated and our server, Peggy, gave us time to peruse the menu while she offered her suggestions. The chef uses local sources for the meats, fish, veggies, and cheeses, to name a few items. This adds to the selections on the menu where the mains were titled Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire. We selected the chicken with mango papaya slaw and the petite filet mignons with sauce beurre rouge 34. Both entrees were presented beautifully and tasted divinely, as they were cooked to perfection. Our anniversary was made even more special, as we dined on the covered deck, when Peggy served us complimentary glasses of champagne! Dessert? English Toffee Pudding! Yum"

  • "We enjoyed a great dinner on the covered terrace. The chopped salad and baked onion soup were delicious. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly. We shared a delicious peanut butter mousse for dessert. Fantastic service, Great view of the gardens, all in all a perfect dining experience."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I had their seasonal chicken dish and an Ahi Tuna appetizer. I've never raved about chicken in my life until the other night. Just simply fantastic."

  • "I've been going to Settlers for years on my annual trip to the Poconos for visiting day weekend. When we started (about 5 years ago) it was a great restaurant. I've become increasingly less satisfied with the experience. The menu is limited and, generally, pretty pedestrian. The food leans toward too salty and the bread, which used to be fantastic, is now just blah. Unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of options in the area for a civilized dining experience."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "It was our first dinner at the Settler's Inn and we enjoyed our experience from our appetizers to dessert. My husband ordered the special for the day and I had one of the few menu choices. Our server was friendly as was all of the staff and we didn't wait or want for attention. If I had one comment regarding the menu choices is that there was very few to choose from--- One Vegetarian, two fish/seafood, one poultry and one red meat + any specials."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We have dined at the Settler's Inn 4 times now and have never been disappointed. This was the first time for the summer menu and were a little surprised it had an Asian flair. Our other experiences were with Autumn menus. Excellent."

  • "We had visited this restaurant while in PA many years ago and decided to make the trip again, despite the 65 mile trip from NY. It was well worth it. The food, wine and service were all fantastic and the piano player made for very enjoyable evening. Their menu,with farm to table selections, was appealing to any taste and the food was fresh and well presented. Our server was friendly, knowlegeable and we weren't rushed at all. I highly recommend this rare find of a restaurant."

  • "Love this place .... Very nice ... Great food and service ... One of a kind ..... Can't wait to go back .... Very convenient location"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The setting is beautifully restored in the arts and crafts style of the original period, and was the backdrop for a lovely evening. We were greeted by everyone involved in service in a very friendly manner, and they were all eager to help and share their expertise. Peggy, our waitress, was so warm and personable, and the sommelier introduced us to a flight of wonderful white wines which included a fabulous Guigal Hermitage. The food was mostly excellent, and Peggy was very inquiring/receptive to feedback on how to make it even better, claiming that the chef wanted to know what the customers thought. The evening ended delightfully because the bus-boy told us about the fantastic 4th of July fireworks in Hawley which were indeed that."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The quality of the dining experience at Settlers has been consistently excellent over the years. The physical space is charming – enhanced by a very attentive wait-service and a pianist with a delightful repertoire. The onion soup, a favorite of mine, is particularly tasty. If paired only with the Settlers breads, I would leave feeling sated. (I miss the banana bread of days gone by.) The grouper I had for an entree was delicious as were the snow peas which were tastefully crunchy. The folks I dined with were equally satisfied with their choices. Thank you Settlers. We are already looking forward to our next visit."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant to go to in PA. We are never disappointed. The food is delicious, presentation is upscale and desserts are to die for. The service is just right, not too pushy and not ignored and friendly."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Settlers has been a family favorite for many years. However, we dined on June 2, and they were still serving the May menu. At least I'd like to believe that was why the food was not up to par. Sword fish overdone, asparagus the size of a carrot and over cooked. They were running low on scallops and cut them in half to make it look like there was more, instead there were thin scallops that were charred on one pieces and not the other. "

  • "We celebrated our 18th anniversary here. We were wowed by the food, and the very gracious and friendly hospitality!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. Small menu but the food was delicious. It was very nice to sit out on their patio looking onto their garden. A deer walked through the garden during our dinner experience - nice bonus for a lovely night."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "One of the best places in the Poconos. If you like outdoor dining, the terrace overlooking the garden is lovely. If you choose inside he piano playing and the arts and crafts decor makes the experience special. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The food was superbly prepared and elegantly served. We were offered a complimentary appetizer of goat cheese, pesto and black garlic which melted in your mouth. The french onion soup was excellent and the entrees exquisite. The wine list is extensive and the prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend it. "

  • "Look at the pictures online -- they portray the great experience. It's not possible to be all things to all people, and this place is focused. Youw ill know if it's what you are looking for just by opening the site -- and the food is very well prepared and presented. "

  • "I normally do not dine out on holidays due to the fact that most restaurant meals tend to be uneven at best. However the Settlers Inn was able to impress with a perfect meal. The lamb shank was the best."

  • "I have eaten many times at the Settlers Inn and have always enjoyed it. The food and service are superior. Unfortunately, because it was Mother's Day, they were forced to provide a limited menu in order to maintain their great food and service. I was a little disappointed with the choices but the food and service were up to their usual standards. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "As always The Settlers Inn provided a wonderful experience. The food choices were superb, the service was great and the ambience is incredible. We are never disappointed when we come here. "
