On the way home from visiting P town, the traffic was getting heavy, so we decided to stop at Van Rensselaer’s for dinner, and hoped the traffic would thin-out by the time we were done eating. This restaurant primarily specializes in all types of fresh seafood. They also have steak, hamburger’s, some pasta and shellfish on their menu. We arrived a little before supper hour, so we were seated right away. Our server was a lovely Asian woman, who couldn’t have been more pleasant throughout our meal. All our entrees were quickly prepared, cooked to perfection and served hot. All our food was delicious, and the portions were just right. We liked the fact that you could order both smaller or full size portions and we all ordered the smaller size, which we found perfectly adequate.
Van Rensselaer's has been family owned and operated for over 45 years. The owner was on the premises and continually walked through the dining room, making sure everyone was happy with their meals. The pricing is moderate and although some reviewers said the dining room was dated, we found it perfectly neat, clean and a very pleasant ambiance. It’s easy to see why they were awarded the Trip Advisor 2013 Certificate of Excellence. I highly recommend this restaurant to experience a superb and pleasing dining experience.
