We frequent Van Rensselaer's whenever we are on the Cape. Pater is always there to greet the patrons, and is extremely friendly and welcoming. We enjoy the food, especially the deep fried cauliflower. It is one of the best appetizers we have eaten. The seafood is fresh and prepared well.

Have eaten here several times over the years and it is consistently good. The salad bar has lots of interesting options. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. Always a good meal.

Nice place, great food and excellent service. Would definitely visit again. We had the filet mignon and prime rib special and everything was very good.

Van Rensselaer's offers a excellent raw bar, seafood staple dishes as well as delicious seasonal, fresh specials. Their salad bar is huge and always fresh. Our server made excellent recommendations for both meals and cocktails. We had a great dining experience.

We only had the opportunity to eat breakfast here twice before biking the trails but loved it so much that we HAD to return. DO NOT MISS this restaurant! Special pancakes such as raspberry coconut and other loaded fruits were yummy. They can accommodate those who require gluten free items. There is a large variety for those who choose the buffet. The staff was excellent, atmosphere delightful, and we always left fully pleased. We did not have the opportunity to try other meals there but if their breakfast is any indication - it has to be great. I would love to return.
