A nice breakfast in Wellfleet

I had breakfast with my wife at Van Rensselaer's Restaurant. It was recommended to us by family and friends. It was easily-accessible; on the high way (route 6). The atmosphere was welcoming and staff were friendly. The Omelette was very good. We had nice time there.

We have dined at VRs many times over the years. The food and service is always excellent. The seafood is fresh and deliciously prepared. The salad bar is wonderful too and I always get that to accompany my meal. Great for kids too and a lovely atmosphere. Always warmly greeted by the owner. Look forward to our next visit!

We found some good reviews on Van Rensselaer's and since it was just down the block from where I was staying... and we had to have breakfast, what the heck! We started off with a couple of Bloody Marys. Mmmmm, very good. Nice and spicy the way I like em. A couple different versions of them too. I had their... More

We have been going to Eastham for several years, visiting the same restaurants each time. We decided to try Van Rensselaer's this year, and I'm glad we did. They had a great selection of full and bistro dishes, the latter which were perfect for us with smaller appetites. The seafood was fresh and well prepared. The waiter was attentive but... More

Was in the mood for a healthy light supper after a stroll on Marconi Beach (which is right across the street). Had an appetizer, the calamari, with the salad bar as a perfect meal tonight. Lots of choices at the salad bar, e.g. caesar, greek, spinach, kale, and many kinds of veggies and beans. Loved the fresh fruit salad for... More

My husband and I visit this restaurant for breakfast at least twice each year during our one week summer vacation on the Cape. I ordered the pineapple-orange-coconut smoothie, which was delicious. I also ordered 2 eggs over easy and sausage links. Although the sausage links appeared to be cooked/grilled cooked they were not hot, nor were th eggs. My husband... More

We arrived just in time to catch their early bird special which made a fabulous meal and great service that much more attractive! We had Prime Rib and Calamari, drinks and wine with the meal and left for under $80. Fantastic staff, a great salad bar, and good meals would make this a place worth returning too especially if you... More

Happy Hour- nothing better. Kendra you are the best. Wellfleet oysters, just perfect; best clams casino. Tonight's entries: striped bass; just in at 3pm; so very fresh & you can have them prepped your way. Our waitress "Gretchen" oh yeah; so professional. It was a wonderful night. Thanks Peter & Dianne.

This restaurant is one we visit at least once on every visit to Cape Cod and this year was no different. First the good news is that they have a fantastic salad bar which has been described by others in their TA reviews. It has about everything that you can ever desire. My better half ordered the baked stuff shrimp... More
