4 Ways The Settlers Inn Reimagined Dining

Times have changed. We, like the rest of the world, are adapting to a new normal. Now more than ever there’s an appreciation for a thoughtful meal. We crave the dishes and flavors that evoke feelings of comfort and closeness. We’re delighted to welcome you once more inside the dining room at The Settlers Inn. Now you can enjoy our distinctive cuisine here at the Inn, at your kitchen table, backyard grill or even a favorite picnic spot.

Ready to Eat

Order a take-out meal from the menu that’s packaged hot and ready to enjoy right away. Ready to eat options feature farm-to-table entrees such as Grilled Forks Farms Chicken, Miso Glazed Pan Seared Salmon and Grilled Bistro Steak. Overnight guests may enjoy dishes from the Ready to Eat menu, as well as Picnic Basket options, on the grounds of The Settlers Inn or in the comfort of their room.

Picnic Basket

These adorable cardboard carriers are packed with portable meals you can take anywhere. Whether savored on the Inn’s lawn, aboard a boat on Lake Wallenpaupack or on a nearby hiking trail, picnic baskets are filled with elevated favorites. Choose from a Grilled Chicken Sandwich on Brioche or a Nashville Hot Chicken Wrap. Nothing says summer like a New England Style Lobster and Shrimp Roll, and Roast Beef on a Brioche Roll is a hearty option. Each Picnic Basket meal includes a premium glass water bottle, an apple, a big cookie and one side such as couscous salad, pasta salad or potato chips. Napkins, utensils and condiments also come with each basket. Chef Kate let us know what to expect inside every basket. Watch our chat with her here.

Ready to Heat

For the first time, The Settlers Inn is offering select items from its menu for customers to take home and prepare, complete with instructions from Executive Chef Ben Sutter. Ready to Heat meals can accommodate a family of four and boast the Inn’s signature Birdseed Bread and sides. Pasta options include Pancetta Black Pepper Creamy Tomato Sauce Fettuccine and Baked Ziti. Chicken may be added to either dish. Entrée options also range from the traditional- Brasato Beef Tri Tip Sunday Roast- to the trendy- a Taco Bar with Barbacoa Beef and Sazon Chicken and all the fixings.

Butcher Box

Grilling is one of the pleasures of summer. There’s nothing quite like food prepared over an open flame and shared outdoors. Butcher Box gives customers access to restaurant quality cuts of protein to take home and grill. Customers have a choice of seafood, beef or chicken- all  perfectly portioned, seasoned and ready to cook. The Settlers Inn chefs send along cooking instructions to create distinctive meals such as Faroe Island Lemon Pepper and Thyme Salmon Steaks, Garlic Rosemary Rubbed Eight Ounce Center Cut Filet Mignon, Old Bay and Chipotle Jumbo Shrimp and Mediterranean Seasoned Freebird Farm Chicken Breast. Spring Watercress and Garden Mint Soup, Couscous Salad and Asparagus are among the sides available to add on to complement the meal. Chef Ben demonstrates the Butcher Box options and offers some cooking tips. Watch the video here.

Finish with a Flourish

Any of these options may be paired with beer served at the Inn’s Chestnut Tavern.  And customers craving The Inn’s decadent desserts don’t have to go without. Favorites such as The Settlers Inn Signature Toffee Pudding,  New York Style Cheesecake and a Baked to Order Cookie Box are all available to go.

All in the Family

Sister properties, Glass-wine.bar.kitchen at Ledges Hotel and The Dock at Wallenpaupack at Silver Birches Resort are also offering creative options for take-out. A Glass trademark, the charcuterie board, is available on the restaurant’s Picnic Basket menu, while Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, a favorite at The Dock, are featured on its Butcher Box menu.
