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.

Came here for our anniversary dinner. Very classy and traditional in appearance. The dining room is a large rectangle, nicely appointed and the comfortably lit. We were seated immediately upon arrival and the service was impeccable. Piano player worked through various decades covering a variety of songs nicely. Thoroughly enjoyed the pork belly on kimchi appetizer and the venison 3 ways entree. I don't understand getting whacked 19.50 for a glass of Pinot Noir. Probably a nice place to dine for the holiday season.
We have been dining at The Settler's Inn ...
We have been dining at The Settler's Inn for over 10 years, usually for special occasions. The service and food was always top-notch. Not so this time. I ordered a bottle of their featured wine for our table of three and left the table for a moment. During this time, the waiter brought the bottle to a station behind our table, pulled the cork out before presenting it, then asked my husband to taste it. The waiter then poured an ounce or so in my glass and my husband's. When I returned, the friend dining with us had observed all of this, and questioned that the waiter had not first presented the bottle with cork intact, then opened it; he was quite sure that he had seen the waiter bring it over with the cork raised. After the two small pours, there was less than half of the wine left in the bottle. The cork had a different vintner's name on it! So clearly the bottle had been opened, wine poured out, and then passed off as a full, unopened bottle. When I asked the waiter about this, he responded vaguely that he had noticed something "odd" about the bottle, and did I just want to pay by the glass? I asked him to bring a full bottle as we were sharing between three people. The host brought another bottle, but it was the wrong vintage. I pointed this out, and he said they didn't have any of the earlier vintage left. Truthfully, I am stunned by such incredibly low quality service. They pride themselves on their cellar and have an extensive list. We dined on their patio this summer, in the early evening, and it was not terribly busy. Several waitresses tended to the tables, but no one came to bring us water and menus. After a half hour of sitting there, we asked one of the waitresses if we could have service, and she replied in surprise, "No one has come to your table yet?" After these two poor experiences, we are taking this restaurant off our of list of places to dine for special occasions. Clearly their quality is declining. It is very disappointing.

It was overall a pretty fantastic experience. The food was excellent, and the service on point. My one complaint would be several boisterous patrons singing along to the tunes the piano player was playing, but otherwise it has great ambiance. I would highly recommend for any special occasion.

Whenever I meet my friend in the Poconos, we make it a point to have dinner at Settlers. The food is delicious, the selections are interesting, and the service is impeccable. They always serve an intriguing amuse-bouche. We both had a special - opah with a pineapple-srIracha glaze - that was wonderful. And we never leave without having their superb English Toffee Pudding for dessert. One highlight of the dinner was the fantastic piano player who went around to the tables of diners to get requests, and played wonderfully entertaining numbers from a wide spectrum of sources.

We had a nice Sunday evening dinner with friends. It was a quiet evening with only 4 or 5 tables occupied. We ate outside on the patio which is a nice setting. The service was excellent and the pricing was fair for the value received. It is a fun dinner menu on Sundays with no bar food.

The Settlers Inn was an excellent choice for a special Anniversary dinner. The Hotel was quaint and full of old furniture. I liked the wooden chairs at the dinner tables. The waitresses and waiters were very good, fast and efficient. they all had good personalities too.
Will go back to Hawley. $72 dollar Porter House steak for two, was pre cut.

Settlers Inn was well located for me to meet up with my daughters, who were in the Poconos visiting friends over Labor Day weekend. We enjoyed Sunday brunch and took photos on the lovely grounds. Authentic and nostalgic old-time rustic atmosphere.

Celebrated our 30th anniversay....couldn't have been more enjoyable....romantic atmosphere....tried the zucchini flower stuffed with riccotta -excellent!! Angus rib eye was cooked to perfection. Cocktails were also delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the Inn's gardens. Leave time to walk down to the river and enjoy some time there. There are chairs and a fire pit. It is beautiful and peaceful We had both lunch and dinner here while in the area and both were great meals. Service was good as well. The best restaurant we found in this area by far.

Settler's is THE restaurant in this area! The service, ambiance, cocktails, and food are beyond words! We chose the petite Filet Mignons with tomato compote and lyonnaise potatoes, all of which were done to perfection, along with the Asian Banh Pho Noodles with roasted farm fresh vegetable medley. For dessert we chose the English Toffee Pudding, my favorite! (The only other restaurant I have had this pudding is in Rules in London!) It is always a delightful experience!

Waitress tried to be helpful. I think she was disgusted the air was blowing on us they turned it lower for a minute then back up. My granddaughter had mashed potatoes with her filet mignon which had a chicken bone mixed in. The chef said it was a root of the potato. No offer to replace potato. The maitre de was inattentive waited 10 minutes to be seated and the restaurant at that point wasn't crowded . So for the price and attitude I would not recommend or return

Best food, doesn't matter what you get!! Great wine selection and fabulous service by the bartender and waitress. The host was kinda snooty but tolerable; I wouldn't change the review from 5 stars. The chef also sent us an amuse bouche which was to die for!! Definitely retiring on our next visit.

Settlers Inn never disappoints. Food is always fresh and good, drinks are always special, and nothing beats the ambiance. I ordered a turkey sandwich this time out, and it was okay, not up to the usual fare I order there, but as turkey sandwiches go world wide, this one is good. Settlers has an array of excellent dishes that keep me returning again and again. The gardens are spectacular, the interior appointments are beautiful and comfortable, and the deck is simply brilliant.

It's a pleasure to dine here. It's ambience is lovely. The piano playing beautiful music in the background is very relaxing. The staff know how to treat the patrons. The food was very good. The menu offered a wide selection to choose from.
What a treat.

The restaurant is lovely with a piano player and lots of atmosphere. The food this time was just average. Our fish was bland and not tasty. It did not include any sides at all which was disappointing. We did enjoy the tuna tartar appetizer. Not sure we would return.

We have been to Settler's many times over the years, and for about three years now it has been getting better and better. They now offer more of a farm-to-table menu, with choices changing based on the local produce. It is not an inexpensive option for the Poconos, but it is excellent food and worth the cost.
We dine there with our 9 year old son. They have a good kids menu that comes with an appetizer, but he is outgrowing burgers and mac-n-cheese, which is from scratch by the way, and ordered from the adult menu. Our waiter, Sean, paid equal attention to our son as us. For example, he would come to the table to just pour our son's soda when his glass was low. His napkin was folded when he left the table.
The wine list is extensive with a little in everyone's price range. Full bar that made excellent cocktails. Food was fresh and delicious!
