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.

Best place in the Valley! We read the comment about the dog...... Hahaha. Those people should just stay home and eat.... Yes there is a family dog but he is out on the porch, this place is probably cleaner than that patrons own kitchen! Highly recommend!! The food is fantastic, the drinks are amazing! Honestly, the best place we have... More

This is 1 hour from my house but it's worth taking my wife there on special occasions. The food is good and the view is amazing. The staff is excellent and I always tip our waitress well. The desserts are decedent

We went to Settlers Bay for my birthday dinner last night. Ugh! When we walked in there was a dog who laid next to the food prep area. There were six flys circling our table. Our food came to us with undercooked, cold vegetables. The Seafood Chowder was the worst I've ever had. The only upside to the visit was... More

Food, view and atmosphere were spectacular. Enjoyed all the food we ordered. Appetizers, main course, drinks and desserts were amazing! A little more expensive then we thought we would spend but had a wonderful view from the atrium.

We came here after a day of hiking, hungry and tired. The restaurant appeared half empty but we were told that without reservations, we could only be seated in the bar/lounge area (which was fine). The appetizers we ordered were great, we got the shrimp and crab dip and a bowl of French onion soup. For the meal we ordered... More

The lunch was provided by our tour company, so the sandwiches and soup were good, just not my first choice. I can get sliced ham and cheese sandwiches at home. The staff were friendly and efficient. Just wish we could have eaten outside on the deck to enjoy the view.
