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.

    My wife and I dined at the Sertlers to celebrate a special occasion with my 86 year old father who was visiting from England. The service and food were quite exceptional from the time we arrived and everyone was very satisfied with dinner. Our visitors had come over from England on the Queen Mary II so Settlers had 6 days of Cunard's legendary dining to compete with and they did it very well. The only slight negative was that we dined at 7:30 on a Saturday and the noise level was quite high so it was difficult for the older people to hear. Thank you for a great meal - the scallops were amazing. Well done.

    Once a year in the fall we make it a point to dine at this restaurant. A limited but well balanced menu and a very nice wine list. The food and service has always been outstanding. In addition, the most talented lounge piano player I have ever heard didn't take one break in the four hours we were there (arrived early for pre dinner cocktails)....

    One of the few Farm to table restaurants in the area, this is a must visit for fine dining. Extensive selection of both beer from around the world and fine wines available by the glass or by the bottle. Outstanding service and excellently prepared offerings from appetizer through dessert.

    We have stayed at Settler's Inn B&B -eaten brunch and dinner there as well. The staff and ambiance of Settlers Inn is first rate all around. We love coming to the Poconos and going north to Hawley for an awesome experience. Our anniversary (39 yrs) is in October and 4 of the last 8 years have been spent in or around Hawley and the Inn. Thank you!

    This might be the best place I've found in NEPA. The wine list was impressive with a good range to fit any budget. The food choices where unique, although limited for the main course. Everything was cooked just right. The desserts selection fit everyone at the table. I had the English toffee pudding which was delicious. I would go back again for a special occasion or if I had a friend visiting from out of town.

    My wife and I have enjoyed the Settlers ambiance and cuisine for years. This time around was special in that we brought along our two children. We appreciate the restaurant's commitment to sourcing locally made items for the menu. The quality of the cooking is notable, and we feel good about making our children aware of this farm-to-table type of connection with such distinction and quality. This was a most pleasant family outing.

    Love this restaurant and was not disappointed in the food. We checked in promptly at 7:30 and was told it would be a moment as our table was being cleared. We waited probably about 15 minutes and the host never came to look for us. One of the people in our party checked again and we were lead to our table which unfortunately was under the air conditioner. Remind me next time not to sit there. It was blowing on us. Service was a little slow but noticed there were several large parties (which also added to the noise level). I had the salad with figs and the eggplant as the entree. Both were to die for! My husband had the same salad and the salmon which was delectable! My friends had the chicken and salmon. All was fabulous.

    Settler's has continued to provide consistently excellent food, superb service, and a very quiet relaxing atmosphere for a great dinner. Their wait staff is so skilled and so well adept at being there for your every need but not to the point of being obtrusive. Seasonal changes in menu are enough reason to go back at least once a quarter to see what the chef has created out of the local fare, mostly all organic and very imaginative. And it works!

    No doubt the Settler's Inn is the best spot for fine dining in the town of Hawley and its environs. In one dinner experience the wait staff could have been more attentive (so we waited--and waited), but other times, for breakfast, it was quite good. The menu of dishes, wines and beers was excellent, and the arts-and-crafts dining room provided a nice ambience. Our meals were delicious.

Chef is quite creative and, obviously takes pride in everything that leaves the kitchen. Exceptionally large wine list and after dinner drink list. Service was impeccable.

    This was a first experience for two of the couples at our table and it could not have been better. The Settlers Inn is a fine dining experience one would not expect to find in this little town. The almond encrusted grouper was outstanding and the steak was done to perfection. There was a very impressive array of reasonably priced wine.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at The Settlers Inn. I had reserved a table on Open Table and ordered flowers to be put on our table as well. I called ahead to let them know about the flower delivery. When we arrived, we were seated at a window table, flowers in place. They were very beautiful by the way. We were greeted with complimentary glasses of champagne. Dinner was superb, as it always is. The atmosphere is warm and the piano player adds a touch of class.

    We came to Have dinner July 25th and then on August 8th this year. both evenings were quiet celebrations, but the Settlers was the perfect place to celebrate. We've been to the Settlers many times, but usually in the winter. We had intended to eat outside, but because the pianist was playing in the dining room we decided to remain inside. Even though we forfeited the lovely garden setting, the music more than made up for it. Our guests loved everything about our evening. My husband is a fish-lover and so was very pleased with the Grouper. He's so fussy and said that the fish was cooked perfectly. All of the dishes were excellent. We will definitely return before Fall claims the garden.
