“I LOVE this place!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I work at one of the many nearby sleepaway camps in the area and am hard pressed every summer to find a nice place to relax and have a good meal on my days off. The area is practically overrun with fast food restaurants and local bars, but not too many nicer restaurants. I found the Settler's Inn last summer and have visited at least a half dozen times since. Walking into the preserved arts & crafts style lobby is like stepping back in time. The view from the patio out into the gardens is lovely for unwinding. The menu is sourced from local farmers and dairies. You can taste the freshness in the food. The wine list is comprehensive. Best of all, I have never had a piece of meat there that wasn't perfectly cooked. I don't know who the chef is, but hats off to him/her. Getting meat right all of the time is somewhat difficult. In short, I've never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is perfect and the serving staff very knowledgeable and helpful. The prices are on the high side for the area, considering that you can easily walk into virtually any local bar and order an assortment of fried fare plus have a couple of drinks for under $20. If you're from a larger metropolis, however, then it's not likely that you'll flinch when the bill arrives. The entire dining experience is well worth it!

“Best gourmet food in the Poconos”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We dined here last evening and the food was fantastic. Our friend had swordfish and he noted that it was the best he ever had. Everything was enjoyed immensely. The service was over the top.... glasses were kept full of water, and all our needs met immediately. Piano music was played which added to the ambiance. It was a wonderful experience!!

“Always Excellent”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Settlers is a wonderful establishment. The Arts and Crafts decor supplies a lovely backdrop to enjoying the excellent cuisine. They feature a farm to table menu that is fresh and prepared in an exquisite manner. A meal here is always elegant and memorable. We would choose the Settlers for a special occasion dinner, or a quiet lunch for business or pleasure. We truly love their breakfast which we find to be an excellent value.

Breakfast buffet was just delicious. Everything was fresh, tasty, and well prepared! The baked goods tasted like they were made in my own kitchen...even the bacon was amazing!
