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 was so impressed by the wonderful service and the food. My wife had a halibut special which flaked to perfect doneness, and I had the pork chop special with a touch of pistachio cream sauce. They were incredible!!! I really thought also the Settlers Inn chef did a great job of hitting everything on our dishes with perfect temperature (we had the heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad appetizer grilled and served at room temp with balsamic and croutons that melted in your mouth). Touched off with chilled pino grigio, it was a great experience all around. We will be back!

The Settlers Inn is a charming historic hotel Hawley, if you are vacationing in the Lake Wallenpaupack area, make sure to stop at this gem for a romantic dinner. The menu is amazing with foods prepared exquisitely. The gardens and grounds surrounding the hotel are beautiful. Take a walk down to the river behind the hotel.

We have eaten at Settler's Inn several times before. The food as always was excellent. I was very disappointed that they were unable to honor my 8:00 reservation. It was only at 8:15 that they offered outdoor seating, or I would be looking at another 15 minute wait. Fully realizing that Saturday night can be the busiest night, I will still have to factor this experience when planning dinner again.

Being from out of town, we were looking for a place to celebrate our daughter's/sister's 30th birthday. We chose to eat on the veranda overlooking a beautiful garden. The waiter was personable and attentive. The food was delicious and well presented. We all agreed it surpassed our expectations and will definitely return while in the area.

The food was excellent! It was creative, fresh and flavorful. The piano player was very talented with a wide array of songs and the interior is beautiful. Our waiter was just ok, it was hard to hear him speak and hospitality was not his strong suit. But he was efficient. The temperature of the room was uncomfortable, I left my table to wipe the sweat from my brow in the ladies room and found a small spot of cool air by the bar. This is an easy fix and one that an establishment of this caliber should correct.

We had another excellent meal here. Delicious mussels, fabulous salad, great steak and short rib combo. The salmon was good but nothing to write home about...a touch overcooked. Chocolate torte dessert with coffee icecream....yum!
My only complaint, the bar drinks are meh....

We had been to the Settlers Inn several times. It is far from our house at 130 miles but when we go to the Poconos we try to drop in. Our last visit was for our anniversary. It was a Friday night and service was perfect. Our waiter, Brandon, was attentive but not overly so. The French onion soup which we have had every time we visited has never been equaled. We went though open table for the reservations and had flowers sent to the restaurant. They were at our table when we were seated. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. And I made a number of brownie points with my wife.

Upscale place, food was outstanding. You can tell it was made by a great chef, using the finest ingredients. A little pricey but the food was worth it for sure. Smaller courses but I left full. Will visit again. Baked onion soup and the Steak was UNREAL!
We had a delightful evening.
The dining room was slightly noisy due to a family with a baby and a toddler, but this was not a problem caused by the restaurant. We enjoyed the children, but it is not everyone's pleasure at an upscale restaurant. The wait staff was very gracious with the small children and we understand that the restaurant is part of an inn. So, the family may have been staying there. This was a minor concern for us. We had a marvelous evening from start to finish and being at the Settlers Inn for dinner on our 40th wedding anniversary was truly a wonderful and memorable experience.
I took my girlfriend there, to propose to her.
I was specifically looking for a restaurant that was romantic and the ambiance was perfect. The menu is small, but, all of the ingredients are extremely fresh and we loved that everything was organic and grown locally. The chef did an amazing job pairing the proteins with a variety of fresh fruits, sauces and or vegetables. I highly recommend the Settler's Inn to anyone who wants a special experience. The food and great service was also enhanced by a piano player.
A quiet holiday
Settlers was short of help,due to the holiday,we had to wait quite awhile for someone to acknowledge us. The waitress was working very hard (Jenna was the only wait person in the dining room.) She never lost her composure and was polite and cheerful and overworked.
Good food not good music
While eating at this restaurant, it was very difficult and distracting to talk to my company while the piano player was playing loud, fast, and inappropriate Billy Joel tunes. The songs that he decided to play would have been better at a bar scene, not for fine dining. I wasn't relaxed at all and had to strain to hear the conversation at the table.
Great brunch with family
This was our second visit to The Settlers Inn. Our first visit was for dinner on a Saturday night and it was WAY too loud; given the wedding downstairs. We returned for brunch with visiting family. The noise level was perfect and the food was great. We will return on non-wedding times.

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.
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.
