Good vibe at the settlers but the food was average at best. I got the chicken burger, the mrs got a steak and they both lacked taste.

We arrived in Margaret River on a Sunday night, a bit on the late side. Many places were closed along the Bussell Highway. Settlers was open -- live music being played on the patio out front and there was a smoker/BBQ cranking. It looked fun and was open so we went, with low expectations for "bar food" and ended up...

Went to Settlers on a Thurs evening. It's always busy in there so needless to say it was packed! Took us ages to order our food and drink but we were really impressed with how quickly they brought the food out! Service is great, overall. They have a very extensive menu. We had the calamari and the slow cooked beef,... More

Mains arrived within 5 minutes of ordering, but dessert took 20 minutes, and long queues to order. Food was fantastic and atmosphere was good. Staff gave excellent service,we will be back!

We sent to Settlers Tavern the first night we arrived in town. I had been here before and remembered I had a nice meal so decided to try again. I was a little disappointed and found the food to be average. Disappointing, but having said that, I would go back to try something else, as it could have just been... More

Garlic bread could have used a bit more garlic but the meat soup special was bang on for entree. The chicken tacos for main were a bit on the bland side but still tasty and the joy burger was good but was too big for its bun! Service was quick considering the place was pretty busy!

We stopped in here for lunch new years day after being turned away by half of Margaret River restaurants as they were closing early or not serving lunch. And we were quietly surprised. Food was delicious and ample in size. Kids and adults enjoyed, expecially on a hot day.
