Today I ate the best Steak and Lobster I've had in many years, without question. I just did some world travel recently and at one point last month I ate lobster at least once a day, and it never came close to what I just ate (usually the lobster I'm served is dry, flaky, or kept poorly). I used to... More

Oh my, here we go again. The food is the worst, cheapest quality covered with sauces and gravies. Salads are made by servers with bare hands. Very stingy with bread at table, could be day old, was very dry and hard. Peppered steak is deep fryed and disgusting. This could be a really nice place if they used quality food.... More

The service has always been excellent as is the food. The view is fabulous and we live just down the road. We choose Settler's Bay Lodge for special dinners.

I chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner. We were seated right away, so all started well. The waitress was prompt but aloof. She was knowledgeable of the menu. But, when the service began, we were only half way through our salad when the main course arrived. I could not believe it. By the time we got to our dinner,... More

I just ate here again last night! As before, the service was great and the views just before sunset were wonderful!! The food was good again last night. I had the Filet and my friends has various other steaks. I had the garlic mashed potatoes and most everyone else opted for the red potatoes. Various desserts were served along with... More

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
