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.

A nice back in time dinner with good service.I will love a better phone receptionist,1st very unpleasant and rude when I asked for a reservation and she quoted only if you want to sit on a lap,2nd when I called back and I said I was confirmed my reservation and asked about the rudeness all I got was thanks for confirming and a then she hung up. If it was not for friends wanted to go I will pass.

I have never had a bad meal at the Settlers Inn. I came for Thanksgiving diner and was not disappointed. Everything from the salad to the dessert was fantastic. Also, they had a piano player who played a great variety of old classics to contemporary music. Definitely added to the beautiful atmosphere. They also have a great wine list.

We always love to come for Sunday brunch when we come up to our cabin in the Poconos. Everything about this lovely restaurant is perfect for a gourmet meal and experience. The fresh baked breads and "starters" are my favorites!
Another terrific dinner at the Settler's ...
Another terrific dinner at the Settler's Inn for my husband and I. We have been to the Settler's Inn many times since 2007. We were seated fairly promptly for our 8:00 pm reservation. The place was busy, we were told a wedding party was celebrating that night.
The menu did not disappoint. There are always fresh, imaginative and seasonal options. My husband and I enjoyed the classic French Onion soup. Terrific, substantial flavor but both our portions were suspiciously lukewarm, and the cheese was melted but not browned. We shared an appetizer of cold smoked trout with accompaniments and the 32-oz ribeye medium rare with parmesan potatoes. Those three items did not disappoint. As usual, attentive and professional service.
This is the second time we have dined and had to deal with boisterous, tipsy guests. A little too boisterous, noisy and "Let's sing-a-long with the piano player" for my liking. Although this nuisance did not irritate us enough to involve the management, I would remind the restaurant that for me, and lots of other guests, this is a special occasion dining experience and the noise level and guests' behavior should reflect as much.

We love it here and go often for special occasions. The atmosphere is lovely and the food always good. Their meat and duck usually a tad better than the fish preparations. Great fireplace in bar area. My only complaint: not sure how they make their shaken cocktails, but they are consistently a tad watery. Otherwise, the place is awesome!

My wife and I went for an overnight stay for our anniversary and were very pleased with our choice. The Settler's Inn was just as we imagined, pleasantly quaint with a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The room was spacious and clean. The restaurant was a very romantic setting ,the wait staff was excellent and the food was outstanding . The lobby bar offered complimentary wine tasting and the bartender very friendly and informative. The included breakfast the next morning was also very delicious. All in all, a great time!! Worth the trip...

My double cut porkchop was perfectly cooked. The pistachio sauce splashed over it was wonderful. And the porkchop itself was moist and tender.....literally the best I ever had.
My only regret is the Settlers In is 90 minutes from my home!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – it was cold out side and the fireplace was blazing inside. Very comforting. Loved sitting in front of the fire having cocktails with friends. Dinner was awesome. The piano bar the best, Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. Looking forward to coming back in December for our anniversary.
Love, Love this place no matter the season,

We always really enjoy our dining at Settlers Inn; we know we can rely on superb food offered by talented & imaginative chefs , attentive & knowledgeable service, all within a charming setting; it's where we go for special occasions as well as when we want to treat ourselves to a few hours of overall enjoyment which includes your lovely gardens. Thank you for providing all this in our area.

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.
