On and Off Premise

Family Owned & Operated for 50 Years

Van Rensselaer’s has been family owned and operated for over 45 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.

Please call us to make reservations.

Cooked Perfectly and Delicious

One of the best meals we have had on the Cape. Our server was friendly, attentive, and knew the menu well. The owner was fantastic and checked in on our meal and greeter our baby like he was a VIP.
Everything from our stuffed lobster to our burgers were cooked perfectly and delicious. Will add this to our list of places to frequent when we vacation on the Cape.
~ Mabel S.

Friendly Atmosphere

Great food, friendly owners and staff
There is always a friendly atmosphere when you walk through the door.
I recommend stopping in for some great food and enjoyable dinning experience.
~ David T.

Everything was Perfect

What a friendly place. Such a hometown feel. Had fresh blueberry French toast with bacon. Everything was perfect, food, waitstaff and hostess. We are definitely coming back on our next cape visit.
Do not drive by this place without stopping cause your missing a gem!
