About 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.

Food was excellent. Small menu, but the food was done well: fresh and tasty. We appreciate the freshness; as we are avid organic gardeners. Unfortunately, in terms of ambiance, we could feel the floor under our feet vibrating from the VERY LOUD music downstairs. We will not return on a Saturday night- it was a detractor.

The soup special with the quinoa was good except for the very tough chicken there could have been more quinoa in the soup also. My main meal was good chicken was super tender the risotto on the other hand tasted like paste and I'm Italian was very disappointed
The Settler's Inn never disappoints!
From the first course to the dessert everything at the Settler's Inn is served with style and elegance. We always go for Mother's Day or Easter Sunday and the food choices delight. We chose the Salmon and it was amazing. The presentation was the best and the flavor better still! This will continue to be our go to place for occasions.
It was all about that bass
We usually LOVE this restaurant. The food and service is typically excellent. Great wine and cocktails. However, there apparently was a wedding downstairs. And we were seated just outside the kitchen. The music was so loud we had trouble conversing. The bass from the music actually made my chair vibrate. Our waitress said that several staff members had gone downstairs and asked to turn down the volume. It didn't happen. I certainly hope the management will prevent this from occurring in the future.
The service was top level! We went for breakfast. Their breakfast sausage was really good and my son kept eating everyones homefries so the waiter brought him out his own dish full of them. The mini pumpkin muffins and blueberry sauce they bring out with your drinks is so yummy! I can't wait to go back their on our next trip.
Always a great experience!
We love having brunch at the Settlers Inn. Consistently great food, great service and, during warm months, we could dine outside and have a great view of the beautiful garden.
Excellent Dinner as Usual
My husband and I had dinner recently to celebrate our anniversary . It has become kind of a tradition to have our anniversary dinner at The Settlers Inn if we are in the area. As always the food, service and ambiance was amazing. We have never had anything that we did not liked there. The food is always fresh and local and the servers are always friendly and knowledgeable. Outstanding place!
Outstanding in every way.
Seldom do I compliment, but in this case, I simply must. Great EVERYTHING ! ! ! Moist chicken......unheard of, but two of us had chicken dishes and we both were surprised at how well the cook had prepared them. I cannot think of a thing that disappointed us and that sentiment was shared by the three of us who came for dinner. Many thanks and you can expect us back the next time I am in town. Wish you had one in New York ! ! !
Fine Dining in a mountain lake region
Entered into a well kept historic Inn and at the dining room we immediately heard the live piano music setting the tone for our evening. The woodwork of the dining room set up the ambiance with good service to match. Strawberries, oranges and nuts with the spinach salad covered in raspberry vinaigrette was a good start. My wife found the chicken breast tender & moist served with a pea & mushroom risotto to her liking. I tried the pork tenderloin and enjoyed the slightly spicy burgundy glaze. The wine list is nice and we went with trying a couple of varieties by the glass. Choice of a 5 or 8 ounce pour is good.
Settlers Inn is outstanding. The food is always prepared perfectly and the grounds are beautiful. Service is always top-notch.
Our favorite place for special days (ie: holidays,birthdays,anniversary) or when we just want a nice pace to dine in a friendly atmosphere. We are treated as if we are there only customers!

Did breakfast & dinner here. Really nice classic look to the place & the food was great.
Always have the best meal here, they always have something different and special. Great food and great staff
The food came up short
First off, I would go back. I wouldn't order the chicken again but the staff is great, decor is homely and rustic and the food is decent. my only knock was the chicken (there is only one on the menu). The he description was a Chardonnay butter sauce. What was on the plate was a cool, gelatinous white sauce lacking in flavor with challenging texture. Otherwise, apps were good, my wife's filet was cooked well and the staff was great.
Our friends have wanted to dine at the Settler's Inn for over 20 years, so we finally made it happen and they were not disappointed, in fact-the evening exceeded expectations! Excellent food, charming setting and fun to have live music!
Fantastic service and food
We were greeted by the host, who graciously showed us to the last table in the room (we were embarrassed that we were late for our reservation! - not to worry - we were not made to feel badly). There was a piano player that night that was amazing. Our waitress was attentive (we were also there for brunch that morning and service was fantastic then as well!) Food was delicious.
Although the food was very good, I think a bigger selection is needed.
Always a great meal
I have been to the Settlers Inn for dinner or brunch many times. It is always a great experience. We went for a Valentine's Day brunch and it did not disappoint! There was a three piece group playing who were very good and added to a delightful meal. The food, as always, was fantastic. They try to use as much local suppliers as they can. The menu is always changing and the toughest part is deciding what to try. I have never had a bad meal here and I highly recommend it!
The regional place to be.
A quiet and romantic bar combined with the quiet and romantic dinner. This is the regional place to be for a couple that wants to enjoy a drink before dinner next to the fireplace with a well prepared cocktail and then enjoy a well prepared dinner in a dining room with the ambiance of the Grove Park Inn but never leaving northeast PA. We go to celebrate our marriage and fine food in a setting that respects both.
1st time at settlers inn, place, service was great. Didn't care for my food. My wife loved her's but mine was bland and mushy. App and amuse-bouche were very good. I will give them another shot because every member of the staff was polite and attentive. The piano player was a nice touch.
My Favorite Restaurant
My husband and I went to The Settlers Inn for an early Valentines Day dinner, and it was everything I have come to expect from this lovely and unique restaurant. The food was delicious - fresh ingredients combined to create textures and flavors as delightful to see as to taste! Service was excellent and perfectly timed. The lovely Arts and Crafts interior is the perfect setting to relax, enjoy, and listen to the live music on a special Saturday evening.
Food and Service
Every time we go to the Settlers Inn , we are never disappointed with anything. The Host, waitress and all the staff are very attentive and make our dining there so enjoyable. The food is always excellent, our very favorite place to dine.
My wife and I wanted to have a nice quiet dinner and thought this would be a good place. There was live piano music and great atmosphere. Unfortunately a large table was playing a iPad game, waving it around, yelling and cheering. We couldn't here the piano. The tables around us were also annoyed by this, and we could see others across the dining room looking and staring at them. We complained to our server and the host who sat us, but nothing was done. I was not expecting this to happen at a restaurant of this supposed caliber. After about 30 minutes, I walked up to the head of their table and politely asked them to be quiet. They respected my request, and there wasn't a peep out of them the rest of the night. Why didn't management take care of this? It's not the type of place you would play games at the dinner table. Unfortunately I don't remember anything about the food or service. We paid a lot of money for a sports bar atmosphere. We decided to leave and never ordered a entrée.
An outstanding place... perfect in every way...
One of the finest places you will ever dine! Historic, beautiful, warm & welcoming, delicious...
We usually go to the Settler's Inn for special occasions, and have been going on and off for 10+ years and usually have a lovely experience. Unfortunately, it seemed as though they were understaffed. It took over 20 minutes to try to get our check and our waitress would seemingly disappear for extended periods of time. 4 out of our 6 meals that night were good, the sea bass was bland and not at all notable. Overall, we will return, but were disappointed at our most recent visit.
Don't settle for less
Always a great dining experience at Settlers. We visit every time we are in the area. Even though we have a vacation home in the area, we often will stay at the Hotel just for the pleasure of the experience.

What a beautiful menu of fresh, intriguing and creative flavors that earned a high rating to both my husband and myself. The chef is to commended for being able to execute a very intricate presentation and satisfaction to the palate.
very pleasant evening
We hadn't eaten here in years because we hadn't been wowed that first time and it's far from our home, but we decided to give it another try and we are glad we did. The food was excellent, as was the service. The dining room was very pleasant and we were far enough away from the piano player that we really enjoyed that too. We are adding Settlers Inn to our places we will eagerly return to.
Start the new year at Settler's.
My husband and I have been coming to the Settler's Inn for many years. We like to start the new year off right. The food is beyond good. The presentation is spectacular and the value is excellent. I would highly recommend the Settler's Inn.
NEW YEAR'S EVE DINNER
We love to come to Settlers Inn for dinner especially on special occasions. NYE's menu did not disappoint. We had the oyster's which was delicious followed by, I had the scallop salad which was delicious and my husband had the the lobster, which he loved. Our entrees were wonderful as well. I had the petite filets which never disappoint. My husband had the pork chop and was amazed at how thick it was and done to perfection. Desserts never disappoint, vanilla creme brûlée and we always fight over the Settlers Inn Toffee pudding. To die for!! Thank you again Settler's Inn!
Best Romantic Getaway in the Poconos
We have come here many times in past 12 yrs, always an amazing experience with the best gormet food both at breakfast and dinner...rooms are very cozy and well prepared. The main area is always a special environment that is seasonally decorated with a classic luxury country styling. Service always great as well..a bit upscale price wise but well worth the extra money
Festive and elegant
Enjoyed Sunday brunch in the beautifully decorated dining room. The selections were all appealing and the food was perfectly prepared and served. Excellent friendly service and not rushed.
The Settlers Inn is reliably extraordinary in every way. We enjoy being there often.
Our party of four visited for brunch last Sunday. Two of us had the Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict, which were wonderful with jumbo lump crabmeat, housemade English muffin and a perfectly poached egg. It was a huge portion, with roasted vegetables and we each took half home. The other members of our party had the Grilled Cheese on Birdseed Bread with fries. There were three grilled cheese halves and a generous serving of fries , and all was enjoyed by both parties. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays, and the service was great as always. Would highly recommend.
Always wonderful, but especially so at Christmas time. Sitting in front of the fireplace before going into the restaurant amidst beautiful decorations is special. The Settlers is always beautiful.
The Settlers Inn is our favorite place to dine. I enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner; the food is always terrific! Service is top-notch.
