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 thirteen years.

The Settlers Inn Ratings and Reviews
We say on the back patio overlooking the beautiful gardens. The smoked trout, fried cheese curds, portobello ravioli, and lamb were delicious. Portions were generous without being over large. The vegetables were farm fresh and perfectly cooked. There were a few missteps: the yogurt mint sauce that came with the lamb was sweet and the sauce for the ravioli was delicious, but too rich. Our server was attentive, although he forgot to bring 2 requested items. Definitely would go back to try other dishes and enjoy the beautiful gardens.
I was a little disappointed. Everything seemed flavorless and unseasoned. Both my husband and I found ourselves adding salt and pepper to our food. I looked around and noticed other tables doing the same. The ricotta appetizer was good, but the crackers they were served with were stale and tasteless. The bread was stale. My chicken over pasta was just ok. The wine list is impressive, but the price point was way off. I used to get excited about eating at the Settler's Inn, but will not be rushing back any time soon. It is still very romantic and quaint and if you are not a real foodie you will be impressed. :(
Truly wish it were better. Very nice place in a very small town. Well intentioned people. Unfortunately, I think the kitchen tries too hard. Couple of strange dishes, including a tuna tartare on a fried chip that had 3 sauces and a bunch of fruit on it. The crab meat benedict didn't taste bad, as long as you ate each ingredient separately, other than the English muffin that should be let be.
We went for brunch at 11:00. Our order was taken about 20 minutes in, appetizers (apple slices and cheese and crackers) came out another 20 minutes later and food about 40 minutes after that. We only ordered a burger, grilled cheese, waffles and chicken fingers. It wasn't very busy so I don't know why it took almost an hour and a half to make our food. When it did finally get to our table, it was not hot. The cheese on the grilled cheese had started to harden and the fries were actually a bit cold. All in all it was a 2 1/2 hour brunch. Way too long.
I enjoyed our Valentine's Day meal much more. I liked that the summer menu included lots of vegetable, but I feel they tried to hard. 2 of us ordered the same thing in February, which was deliciously, but not so much this time.
The restaurant is gorgeous but the ambiance could have better. This time it was too loud in there. Perhaps people talking over the piano player? We loved the piano player, but the noise level definitely interfered with dinner conversation.
The Settlers is known for farm to Table and local ingredients. It shines for that. All of the foods were well prepared and adequate portions. The bread is very good. They do not rush you and at times a=i might say the food coming to the table was slow,although, it was a Saturday evening.
Food and Service were great, however we ordered the Prime Rib and Lobster special and were a bit disappointed when our server arrived with Prime Rib and Shrimp, apologizing, explaining that they had run out of lobster. OK, fine, it happens, but we paid for Lobster, it would have been nice if some concession were made; discount, pay for our coffee, etc. but nothing was offered.
This is a wonderful restaurant! The Genzlinger's do everything well, such a friendly place, everyone is happy to see you. They source as much locally as they can. Great atmosphere, and a creative menu. The food is superb. All presented and done with class. Love this place.
Picked The Settler's Inn for our first dinner out during our trip to the Poconos. It was so much grander and special than we expected! Beautiful flowers and landscaping outside, very Tudor looking, with dark wood, Oriental carpets, and beautiful paned windows inside, with a view of a little courtyard with a fountain.
The food was very special- we shared a"lamb two ways entree", that was nicely done. We also had a tomato burrata salad and a tuna tartare appetizer. The tomato salad was boring, but the tuna was fabulous and bursting with flavor. Service was efficient and not overbearing, and the whole experience was very pleasant. Recommend this for very fine dining and atmosphere!
We were sadly disappointed this visit. The Inn has been a favorite spot for special occasions. This time..Sunday night of the July 4th weekend...not up to par. Both food and service were lacking. The zucchini basil soup: boring, the lamb: delicious though oddly paired chops and shank. Dessert: stale biscuits in the strawberry shortcake...no candles for the birthday we requested.
We always have a great experience dining here. We usually come to enjoy brunch. This time we had lunch and ordered burgers. I am not a big hamburger person but I have to admit, this burger was absolutely delicious. My husband and a friend had ordered burgers as well and we all agreed, they were outstanding! I would highly recommend it.
While this was certainly not our first trip to Settlers Inn, it was most memorable. For the first time ever we dined on the outdoor patio and it was spectacular. A beautiful view of the gardens just added to the great meal we enjoyed. If you have the opportunity in the warmer months we highly recommend booking table in advance!
The Settlers Inn is my go-to brunch spot when I've got friends in town visiting the Poconos. The bloodies are a meal in themselves and food never disappoints. Fantastic selection of craft beers, solid wine & cocktails. Ask to sit out on the back porch if the weather is nice and leave plenty of time to explore the grounds after you eat.
