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
Service was excellent, as was the very interesting menu. The character of the facility was very country mission style, casual but very homey. The kind of place you can relax and enjoy your meal without being too stuffy or overdone. Also, not overpriced meals, very family affordable.
Settlers Inn is our "go-to place" for all our special occasions! There is just something so inviting about this quaint inn. I feel relaxed the minute I walk in the door, as I know we're going to have a wonderful meal and time! We had brunch on Sunday in celebration of my husband's birthday! We had a lovely window seat, as I had requested when I made the reservation, and the staff and server were attentive and informative about the menu choices. The food was excellent, as always! My husband had the mushroom, sausage, and cheddar omelet and raved about it! I had the wild mushroom ravioli, which was outstanding as well! To top it off, they surprised my husband with one of their signature desserts, English toffee pudding! My husband who isn't usually a desert eater, truly enjoyed it .. with my help, of course! We never go wrong choosing to go to Settlers! It's a must if you're in the Hawley area and is certainly worth the drive if not !!
A wonderful evening and my sister and I felt very well treated by all dining staff. Our waitress accommodated our request for appetizers on the porch, and we liked her so well, we asked for her again as our server for dinner. Great meal by the chef from the CIA...I had the salmon. Delicious signature dessert seated by the fire place inside. A recommendation from a friend that lived up to the hype. Breakfast took a LONG time, but our waiter was very prompt with coffee and raspberry muffins. Relaxing and beautifully decorated.
Overall, only ONE negative, and that had nothing to do with the meal.
Only issue we had was my father in law ordered a vegetarian meal. They brought out a fabulous dish with great tasting pork. Of course that was not right. They did immeadiatley replace it and apologize, but still. Good thing I was there to verify it was meat.
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!"
My wife and I stayed at a local hotel for our wedding anniversary and went to the Settlers Inn for dinner. Honestly I was blown away by the quality and ambiance of this place. On par with upscale restaurants you'd find in large cities like New York City. The food was excellent! The fish of the day was Mahi Mahi and it was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this spot if you're looking to celebrate something special 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.
