We live at Settlers Bay so the Lodge is our neighborhood restaurant. Are we lucky! Between the food, atmosphere, view & service you just can't go wrong. This is not super-high-end gourmet dining but everything we've ever tried has been really good & they know how to showcase the local seafood. The bartender knows how to make a good drink... More

Drinks are great here as well as the atmosphere with a gorgeous view. Steaks are thick, tender and tasty. Love their hot bread with signature butter mix. Caesar salads are typically quit delicious as well. Try the orange shrimp is always very good.

The chefs at this place not only were the nicest and most smileyest, ( I know that's not a word) of their employees, but boy do they know their business! Holy cow!! The halibut my husband had was sheer perfection as well as my king crab legs!!! We saved our best meal for towards the end of our trip. So... More

It was a 30 minute journey out to this restaurant for a special occasion. The service and food did not meet our expectations. Firstly, don't come here if you need Gluten Free. A plain grilled fish was ordered with vegetables and a salad. The salad arrived with croutons and the waitress didn't understand why we were annoyed. I had the... More

Our group, 5 couples, enjoyed dinner at Settlers Bay Lodge. Given the location, we all chose seafood entrees which are served with a salad, vegetable and choice of potato. Everything was good, but it is a heavy meal, especially when served with the lobster sauce. The service was good and attentive, however one order was not prepared as requested. It... More

I hadn't eating in the dining room at the Settler's Bay Lodge in years. Each year our company holds their Christmas party here and the food is decent, but high priced for that. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. Several large groups arrived right after us and service slowed to a crawl. It was almost a half an hour before... More

I had a rack of lamb ribs and it was $30 (and that's a pretty typical price on this menu). That plus drink plus tip has this meal at $40 for just one person. The food is good, but at that cost I would expect to have some leftovers. The place was very nice and very clean.

We called to make reservations, but when we arrived, there was no record. Our potatoes on our plates were cold and dry, Schnitzel wasn't completely cooked, the waitress didn't check on us. So, I was slightly disappointed. The rest of the food was very good. We received a gift card, so we will give one more chance.
