About The Settlers Inn
Hawley, PA 18428
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
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.
We have been here before, for dinner and for brunch two weeks ago. This time we decided to have brunch once again, and we weren't disappointed. It was just wonderful...the food was excellent, service outstanding, beautiful surroundings and lovely piano music...all making for a wonderful dining experience. It is absolutely one of our favorite restaurants and we will return!!
We have dined at Settlers many times over the past 28 years and each time we are impressed. The setting is peaceful and soothing, the staff is friendly and accommodating yet professional and the food is superb. We love to arrive early and have a cocktail in the sitting room by the fireplace . On our most recent visit we arrived much earlier than our reservation and asked to be seated almost 1 1/2 hours before our reservation. We were seated without issue. The chef uses local produce, fish and game and everything is beautifully prepared and presented. I can not imagine a more enjoyable setting for truly magnificent dining. Living in NYC we are fortunate to have access to many fine restaurants. Settlers holds their own to anything we have experienced in NYC. You will not be disappointed.
Made a res for New Year's lunchtime meal, didn't know it was a prix fixe brunch. I guess we could have asked for the usual lunch menu but it didn't occur to me. Amuse bouche plus appy, entree, dessert, coffee, bottomless mimosas. We didn't have any extras, got out of there for $100. Nice live piano music, coffee by the fire, very nice Christmas decorations, very good service. A very pleasant experience.
Wish people still dressed somewhat appropriately for a high-class venue - too many sweaters w/o shirts (hate that look), t-shirts, jeans. Yes, you're on vacation but at least try to look nice as befits the building, the decor, the meal. Folks, this is the best place in town, not just a burger or pizza joint!
We've never had a bad experience at the Settler's Inn and we visit several time during the year. This was the first time we've been there on Christmas Eve and we decided to make it a yearly tradition.
The only disappointing thing about this visit was that two of the dinner entrees that were on the Settler's Inn web site for that day were not on the menu when we got there. We had planned to order them and had to order something else.
We had dinner for the first time Friday night, and we enjoyed it so much, we went back on Saturday. Great ambiance, great chef, service was amazing, and the food outstanding. Chef came out and introduced himself, he also gave us some appetizers to try that were not even on the menu. Great Place!!!!!!!!!!
We have dined here before a few years back and enjoyed it very much. The ambiance continues to be charming and cozy, attention to detail and service exceptional.
The dinner however was very disappointing.
The soup special was delicious however the other courses were extremely disappointing.
One of us had the dinner special, a goose breast which was dry, two ordered the lamb which was also dry. my fish was fine nothing special but ok.
When you are paying $40plus for an entree we expect good quality meat, well prepared. It was disappointing. We decided not to risk trying a dessert.
The wine list was lovely and the best part of our meal was sharing a very nice pinot noir. They had some great selections on their wine list though the mark up was a bit high as well.
Their breakfast was very nice. Everything well prepared and presented. A starter muffin with locally crafted preserves a very nice touch.
I think next time we stay in this inn we will try a different restaurant for dinner.
Settlers Inn is a wonderful place. Have been going there for years. Miss the fact that they gave up daily lunch several years ago. Food, service, ambiance always excellent. However, the noise level yesterday was deafening -- never before have we experienced this. I also feel that the price fixe menu does not work well for seniors who often cannot eat the amount of food offered -- and there were many seniors in the lovely dining room. I feel a menu other than the brunch menu should also be offered. I do think this was their policy in the past.
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.
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...
"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,
