Recently ate here for my birthday and had a great meal. Extremely diverse menu along with their well-known steaks and the sides are excellent. Highly recommend the BBQ chicken, Carolina pulled pork, salmon, mac & cheese and all of the sides. Everything is very fresh and the ambience is local with awesome outdoor views of the Rincon Mountains. Goin back again soon!

We really liked the food here. We don't eat a lot of steak normally, but this is obviously what they do well. We really enjoyed what we got. The only reason we marked them down on atmosphere was that they had live music that we thought was just too loud for the size of the place (even though the guy was very good)

The Settlement is way out on the east side of the city, set in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains. Word is that it's been here since the mid-1800's. The building is charming - aged saltillo floors, genuine adobe walls, and a courtyard with a working fountain. They are known for their smoke and rightfully so. You can smell it before you get in the door! The menu is an eclectic mix of everything smoked, some Mexican favorites, and a few specials for variety. The portions are huge! One of us had a pulled pork burrito and it was easily a meal for two! One neat thing is their 5-beer shooters - 4-oz samplers of the local brew pubs, served on a 'beer menu' so you can easily identify the ones you like. Service is outstanding, atmosphere very warm. My only criticism is that the chairs could use re-stuffing - they were not terribly comfortable. Otherwise, this is a winner!

My parents live in Academic Village, near Vain. We found this excellent restaurant at a (for us Europeans...) reasonable driving distance. Excellent smoked food, American amounts, 2 days food for a 1 day price.

Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, wonderful staff and the best Bloody Mary I've ever had! Our waitress was Cassie and she was so sweet and attentive! The chef himself even came out to our table to check on us. We will be back many, many times.
