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
I have never been disappointed in my Dining experiences @Settlers. I have been dining there for 30 years. I have also stayed there over the past 30 years at times. Always a great experience. The staff there is well trained. Personable, & Professional.
Even though I have recently moved over 600 miles away, I always make a point of goING to The Settlers, when I am in the area.
Settler's Inn is a perfect setting for celebrating a special occasion. Great Food, a staff that goes the extra step, but are not intrusive on your special night. Our children have enjoyed the
ambiance for their Anniversary celebrations, also. My daughter made our reservation for us, because she said "that is the only restaurant you want to go to in the Poconos!"
The Settler's Inn was recommended to me by a friend who has a lake house in the area. My boyfriend and I had a phenomenal experience from the moment we walked in the establishment. We loved the overall ambiance, enjoyed excellent and friendly service, and found the entire meal to be extremely delicious! I would love to go again, and I will recommend this gem to family and friends!
Every year my wife and I celebrate our anniversary at Settlers Inn for dinner and drinks. It is always a wonderful evening of good food, drink and service. Our favorite is sitting outside viewing the gardens. Staff is professional, pleasant and very accommodating.
The restaurant was wonderful as always. However, I made the reservation through OpenTable and when we arrived at 10:15, we were told that the kitchen closes at 10. We were greatly taken back and explained that we had traveled from New York and New Jersey for this meal. The chef graciously allowed us to stay for the meal, the wait staff was understanding and we were not in the least bit rushed by the staff, but we did feel we were imposing if we stayed too long.
You need to correct the times for seating for breakfast for this restaurant.
This was our first visit to Settlers Inn and we were looking forward to our meal based upon recommendations from friends. Sometimes that is not ideal since your expectations are high and you could be disappointed. However, everything about our experience that night exceeded our expectations and was amazing. Lovely ambiance, friendly and prompt service, delightful meals, excellent wine choices and now we want to book an overnight stay to enjoy more time and meals at Settlers Inn in the future. Simply superb.
Once again, The Settlers Inn, turned in a great performance. The duck was the best we have had and the sauce!! Others at the table enjoyed the pork and ravioli.
Our waitress was helpful and friendly and the rest of the staff attentive. Too expensive to come every week but worth the $$.
My spouse and I dined here on a Sunday evening, which is, during the summer, whole-roasted, local pig day: the evening's specials feature the roasted meat in various, creative dishes. There are other locally-sourced ingredient themes during the week- contact the restaurant to find out more, because the Settlers Inn webpage does not seem to be updated too frequently. I dined on a grilled romaine caesar salad that was presented deconstructed- the parmesan mousse and the perfectly toasted croutons were especially savory- and opted for the pulled pork served over local garlic mashed potatoes and local sautéed green beans. Everything was excellent, though the pork was over-sauced with a concoction that reminded me of Swedish meatball sauce. That was a disappointment and explains the four star rating. My spouse, who is a "clean" eater, started with a superb local zucchini soup, followed by a house salad with a roasted chicken breast (all locally sourced and adjusted to meet her dietary requests). She said the chicken was tender and juicy, the greens clearly fresh and deliciously dressed. The portions were enormous, perhaps because we were seated just before the kitchen closed. The service was attentive, friendly, and not overbearing. The extensive wine list was a pleasant surprise, though the selections by glass were more limited. Finally, the following morning we enjoyed a fantastic, very reasonably priced breakfast, again featuring locally-sourced ingredients and house-made baked goods (the carrot chocolate chip muffins were truly incredible). The ambience was also very nice- the decor is warm, Arts and Crafts and palpably historic. Overall a good value for a fine dining experience. Highly recommended.
This was a real find. Superb dining @ reasonable prices. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal. Everything was delicious! Best crab cakes I have ever
tasted. We would definitely go back if we ever are in the area.
We went to the town of Hawley to visit our granddaughter at camp.
My husband and I went to Settler's Inn to celebrate our 39th Wedding Anniversary. The food was superb as always, the ambiance exactly what we wanted and the service incredible. We had a wonderful meal, in a romantic setting. We couldn't ask for a nicer evening.
From the moment we arrived the attention to detail was apparent, I had including in my reservation a note that this was a special dinner as my new husband was back from a deployment & this was our first date night out since getting married. The staff thanked him for his service, asked where he was deployed to & welcomed him home. We got to sit outside on the beautiful shaded back porch with a gorgeous view of the garden. They brought us champagne to toast the special occasion! The food was divine & the staff very attentive, the beer list was an unexpected gold mine of obscure beers with a spot on taste profile. We cannot wait to head back for date night more often!
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.
