Our family goes to Van Rensselaer's multiple times a summer and we love it every time. Along with the food, Peter and his staff are amazing. My three kids are happy every time (now teenagers, but we have been going since they were all in high chairs!). Last weekend (early August, 2019) we decided to try the breakfast. As usual, we were not disappointed! My 11 year old declared, "the pancakes are better than the Fairway!" Thumbs up all around. Thank you VR for another great season!
My family and I recently had dinner at Van Rensselaer's on our trip in August 2019. My salmon dish, preparred simply grilled, was amazing. All the seafood dishes that my family had, inlcuding a calamari and lobster, were fresh and cooked to perfection. Calamari was light and not greasy, the lobster was cooked to perfection. My son also loved the angus burger and said it was the best burger he ever had. The waiter and staff were also very attentive to my unique allergy concerns. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely stop here again on our next visit to the area.
So happy we had dinner at Van Rensselaer's! Delicious, specially prepared, fresh, good portions! Great variety and accommodation for special diets. Very friendly too!
All the food at VRs is amazing. It is Part of each summer experience many multiple times. To tell it we went on a Friday and the next day people came down who really wanted to dine there for the first time. No problem there are so Many options. Fish one night duck the next. Great drinks. Great wait staff. And btw my son cannot finish the kids fish and chips. Haven't even discussed amazing salad bar. Great place great owners. Start your day at Marconi or one of the Hollow(after breakfast at VR) then end it with dinner and cocktails at Van Rensselaer's!
One of the best thing about VR's is that there is something for every single person in your party. As a vegetarian, I have always been able to find delicious, flavorful food here, while my more carnivorous significant other gorgeous himself on their amazing omelettes and the ever important bacon. Everything was cooked beautifully and served promptly and with a smile.
We went to breakfast here on June 1st and 2nd 2019. Everything was outstanding. We were greeted and seated immediately and coffee was brought over.Our server came quickly to let us know the specials. The food was quick and delicious. The entire staff was friendly and courteous. They make you feel like you are in their home.I highly recommend their restaurant and will definitely return.
Loved the atmosphere. Loved the food. And I will be back what a great restaurant
Filet mignon done perfectly! Bread pudding desert was delicious. Service always great!
I think I have had everything on menu. Love the small portion options. Scallops are my favorite. Don't forget dessert.Bread pudding is the best. Goes without saying , service top notch.
Some of the best chicken Marsala I've ever had. We had this as part of a catered meal and it was spectacular.
The smoked salmon Benedict is fabulous! My Family comes here for breakfast at least once a year on vacation (for nearly 10yrs) and I ALWAYS get a Benedict. I couldn't recommend it higher
Can't wait to get back to VanRensselaer's ! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! Everything about it was wonderful.. From the delicious food , the great atmosphere and service throughout our meal..See You Soon! Can't Wait!
Three generations of my husband's family have been patrons for years. There's a lot I can rave about. However, as someone who has recently discovered French Canadian poutine (French fries topped with cheese curds and meat gravy), I want to discuss VR's lobster poutine. This appetizer was gobbled up at our table in under 5 minutes. The meatiness and creaminess combined with fries is to die for. Every biteful is like a beautiful melody. It's the perfect mix of flavors and textures, sinful comfort food. Next time I'm at VR's, I'm having the poutine with a salad and I'm not sharing!
Best Clams Casino I've had ... many imitators out there but none compare to VR's!
Seared tuna, always a favorite, was perfect.
This was the most delicious shrimp scampi that I have ever had in my lifetime!
we've been coming here for years. Food is very good, is moderately priced and small size as well as regular size entrees are available. Salad bar is excellent and so is bread pudding dessert. Staff is very responsive.
