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
This was our choice for a Mother's Day dinner and it did not disappoint. Each course was better than the one before, topped off by one of the best sirloins I have ever had and a perfect dessert. And as busy as they were, and they were busy, the service was excellent and we never felt rushed. The Settlers Inn is an extraordinary place with a menu to match.
We have usually brunch at Settlers Inn when in PA. It's such a great dining experience every time! We love it even more when it gets warm and you could sit outside on the covered patio overlooking the beautiful garden. The food is excellent and great value; always very fresh, perfectly seasoned and prepared. The service is always great as well. I highly recommend it!
Our reservation was for 6:30. We were seated after 7:30. We were not served until 9PM. The server was never available so drinks were not refilled for over 2 hours. Four of the five meals were very good but the chicken was dry and salty. It was a beautiful place but that was as far as it went.
The Settlers Inn is a quaint restaurant in the small town of Hawley, Pennsylvania. It is decorated in the Arts and Crafts style. The dining room is spacious and each diner enjoys an air of privacy because of the spacing of the tables; no one is seated so close to their dining companions that they could eavesdrop on their conversations. The menu offers local, farm to table selections. There is one choice for land, sea, wind, and for vegetarians, earth. The selections are well prepared and innovative. All of the waitstaff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. A pianist provided a lovely mood to the dining experience. Although the restaurant has an extensive wine list, it is to their credit that they offer a flight of three diverse wines to accompany your meal, which not only allows you to sample their collection, but for those driving allows sharper eyes for the winding roads and abundant wildlife at night. The grounds are lovely and the Inn is an excellent choice for a special occasion or a romantic evening.
The Inn is a very special place for evening meals. The chef seems to always have a surprise dish or preparation style. I try food here that I normally avoid at other places and have never had the opinion it wasn't worth the try. Go when you have time to listen to piano players who sometimes invite other musicians to join them in entertaining the diners.
The maitre d indicated he was giving me the most of frequently asked for table in the dining room. Having dine there several times a year over the past 20 years it was actually the worst table the noisiest and the closest to the kitchen. staff congregated by the table. If it wasn't Mother's Day I would have walked out. I would have preferred a more accurate description of the table buy a the maitre d. He was full of it. I must also tell you I wonder if my booking through open table I got the back end of the table selection. I've dine there many times before and I've never been stuck at this table.
Settlers was recommended to us by my brother who has been there several times. We were in from out of town with our son and could not have been happier to have chosen it for our Saturday night dinner spot. The food was delicious, the service was great and the room was so warm and inviting. Best part: the piano player who took requests from our 10 year old, had an amazing range (from Sinatra to The Doors to broadway) and just totally made the evening.
My husband and I just had our 13th wedding anniversary dinner here. It kind has become a tradition to have our anniversary dinner at The Settlers. As always, our latest experienced at The Settlers Inn was fantastic. They never disappoint. The food is delicious and fresh, the service is excellent and that atmosphere is lovely. We always recommend it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Fantastic place!
Bar was nice; JD is cool.
Food was 'out of sight' 10+++.
Wait service was very good to excellent.
We had a reservation. Seated 20 minutes late [and had time sensitive taks to do].
Maitre D was arrogant, unfriendly, aloof and not concerned with the lateness.
We've tried your place once or twice before and walked away with the same
negative feelings about the attitude.
We have been going to the Settler's Inn for over two decades now and could not believe we had come to the same Settler's Inn we knew and liked. We went in for the burger and brew special only to be told that the beer tap was broken, so we ordered bottled beer which took 20 minutes to arrive.
The burgers were very good as usual. One of us ordered the vegetarian meatballs which were almost inedible; the meatballs themselves were ok; the chard was leathery and the polenta was the consistency of soup. Needless to say we did not eat it all or take any home - the dish priced at $22 is not worth $2.
The staff must have been run off their feet because it took extraordinarily long to get any service; the first beer took 20 minutes and the second was another 20 minutes coming ... all in all a most disappointing evening.
The only redeeming feature of the evening was the fact that the burger and brew only cost $10 each, and so the bill at this usually expensive restaurant turned out to be very reasonable - we did tip our standard 15%, but it was done from habit and did not reflect the service at all.
Took a close friend of mine for brunch and to catch up a after a few years. Walking into the Inn the place has that charm that you do not find today. The person seating use was extremely friendly and we were seated right away. The service was fantastic only out done by the food. We were not rushed and had a very relaxing brunch. One of the best things I found was that you could actually have a conversation with out all the noise and TV's like so many restaurants are like today.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I ordered the French Onion Soup with Swiss Cheese and the Lobster Ravioli with Limoncello Sauce and Winter Veggies; hubby had the Swordfish. Both of us enjoyed our meals. I also ordered a small pot of the French Press Electric City Velvet Blend coffee, which was excellent and ice cream for dessert. I asked for a table by the fire and the restaurant specially set a table for two in the bar area, right in front of the fire. Couldn't ask for better than that :)
Chef Ben was wonderful, we went to the Settlers Inn for my fiance's birthday dinner as a part of his getaway birthday surprise. The food was delicious, well seasoned and flavorful. We will definitely go back in the summer when it's warmer to explore the town a lot more.
Love this place!! The staff is extremely courteous and nurturing so that you truly relax. The food is outstanding with organic and local produce/meats. The cocktails are delicious and there are plenty of craft beer selections and a huge range of wines to choose from. Complete with a beautiful ambiance of historic architecture, mission-style furnishings and a stone fireplace. Could not recommend more enthusiastically!
One word explains it all. "Exceptional ". Been going for years and never disappoints. This time was exceptional because we celebrated our 29th anniversary and had our private table by the fireplace. Staff always has extremely great customer service. All severs are great. Peggy was exceptionally accommodating!
We have been going to this rest. for at least five years now and the food here is always outstanding. Our evening this past Sunday at the Settlers' Inn was nothing short of amazing! I ordered the pork belly as an appetizer and the lobster ravioli. My husband had the lobster bisque and lobster ravioli. As usual it was prepared with both a sense of upscale creativity with a keeping of the traditional home style comfort food mentality! Compared to most restaurants the ingredients used are very clean and we always feel great after eating a meal there.
