Eight Settlers Distillery & Restaurant is the culmination of a longtime dream to build a distillery and share the finest local foods with our community. Eight Settlers is a blend of the 1850’s traditional vintage western style with a modern twist of the second industrial revolution. The Chef’s inspiration for the menu is Modern American with traditional twists, while the spirits are distilled and blended to the highest standards with the best grains available.

    Fantastic food, a little pricey but delicious. The appetizer Brussels sports are amazing, we have the flat iron steak and short rib grilled cheese with steamed veggies and house salad. Would definitely order it all again. Server was great.

    We went for Mother’s Day brunch. After sitting for a good 15-20 minutes for our server to give us the lay of land, we saw her a total of three additional times, one being to ask if we were ready for the check. She walked by our table multiple times. We do dine her often but this is now the second time where the service has been lacking.

    Just an all around great local place to eat and enjoy a very well executed cocktail and dinner. Especially love the upstairs bar restaurant for 21+ diner’s. Pricing is a tad steep but quality of all they serve to eat and drink is extremely good. We are regulars there for lunch and dinner.

    We were on the patio and it was a lillte loud so they were awesome and found us a table with a view in The Distillery. Ambiance was great and noise level dropped with a lower ceiling. Mediocre drinks took a little long to get considering the amount of people there were. Everyone seemed to like their meal a lot. I had the ExoBurger that was ok ndeed tasty but overcooked. Truffle fries were great. I would definitely go back but a little lesson. The specialty drinks.

    Our foodserver wax kind and responsive, but fairly awkward. I had the burger which was tender, juicy, and straightforward. Totally good burger, but not for $26. This entree was indicative of the whole experience--uninspired. Normally, I wouldn't bother reviewing, and would just move on with life. But both my wife and I have been sick to our stomachs since our meal, which is something I didn't expect for $140 tab.

    My wife and I went here for the first time on a weekend date and were not disappointed. The service was very nice from the host to the wait staff and the food was terrific. My wife ordered the veggie Risotto and I got the halibut, which were both very enjoyable and nicely presented. The upper floor provided a nice view of the valley from the all glass wall and our waitress was not only very nice, but very attentive. We will be back.

    7PM reservation and seated promptly. Then came the slow service. We were in one of the jail cells so that may have something to do with the service. The cheese board was totally underwhelming and costs $26; don't do it. The entrees were both very good; Red Bird Airline Chicken and Salmon. We also had a side of Mac & Cheese, which was pretty good but not nearly hot enough. Overall, an interesting restaurant with slow service on a Saturday night where they were not that busy. Good food but not $165.

    Based on the prices, the expectation for the food was high. The food wasn’t horrible but for the price, it should have been the most amazing version of that dish I’ve ever had and our food hit well below that bar. It was disappointing for a distillery to make a really bad old fashion with their own liquor. Service was friendly and the atmosphere and overall space has a lot of potential.

    Food was great from the multiple appetizers to the entrees. Waitress had two friends sitting at another table so every time she stopped by, it was a 10-15 minute visit. At one point, after staring at all of our empty appetizer plates littering the table for a good 20 minutes and knowing our entrees were coming, my dinner guest got up and bussed our 7 top table himself. Getting the bill and a single to-go container took another 15 minutes while our waitress paid her friends another extended visit. My daughter walked over and asked for the bill a second time. And you what comes next - the waitress hands me the little gizmo to enter a tip - with suggested amounts that start at a generous 20% and goes up. And she just stands there waiting for me to hand the calculator back to her. I am EXTREMELY patient and flexible with wait staff these past two years but this one really bugged me. On the flip side, the hostess was very pleasant and patient as we moved from table to table and room to room due to some in our party not bringing ID with them. The upstairs Sun Room has a nice view but was super loud.

    We went for dinner, early March. In the sunroom they had the air conditioning going, and most of the guests had coats on. Our drinks were super weak, I wanted to taste the whiskey so I would know if I wanted to buy a bottle. Our calamari took a really long time to come out, and it was cold when we finally got it. Two minutes late our entrees came out. In the meantime, our server hasn’t been back to check on us once. We had to flag her down. Our entrees didn’t come with the sauce the menu listed, so we asked for it. We were waiting for the sauce to eat, but it never came. We had to flag her down again and she basically told us there was nothing she could do. She ordered it and that was that. She wasn’t even trying to act like a decent person. Just got mad at us for asking. The manager stepped in and finished our service. He was nice, but clearly forcing himself to be nice. It’s unfortunate the service was so ridiculously bad. The calamari was pretty good (even cold) and the burger was good as well, I can only imagine how good it would have been had we gotten to eat it when it was hot.
