cape and island green

Established in 1980

Van Rensselaer's has been family owned and operated for 52 years. In 1968, Howard and Anne Hall opened Southfleet Restaurant serving a variety of Cape Cod fare. Many a customer today recalls those summer nights when a Wellfleet entertainer by the name of Arnie would fill the place with song. 1980 marked the beginning of Van Rensselaer's, a name chosen from Peter Hall's Dutch ancestry. A trace of the family line leads to Steven Van Rensselaer, a name highly associated with New York's Rensselaer County and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Today, Peter and Diane Hall proudly continue to serve the freshest locally caught seafood and superbly prepared meats. We welcome you to our restaurant, we appreciate any suggestions that you may have and above all we hope that you enjoy your dining experience with us.

We are proud to say we are Level 1 Green certified!
