Always good food in a unique and relaxed atmosphere. Special change regularly and the staff is always current and offer helpful opinions. Good wine list and some parking in a habitually hard to park town.

When it's warm, sitting outside on the porch of the house is charming. Love the fish (tautog) mailbox at the walkway. Food was the best. Great waiter. We were staying nearby and walked to the resturant, which made it even nicer on a pleasant evening.

This was our fourth or fifth visit (and probably our last) to Tautog's. The restaurant has an incredible menu and its execution is always top notch; but it's much too crowded, much too loud, and this time there was no evidence of any management in the front of house. Instead of stations, the wait staff are assigned tables throughout the... More

I know how much she crab soup lovers suffer when they get a bowl of mediocre blah. Never fear at Tautogs! We have been going to this restaurant consistently over the last eight years and the soup is always good. We are locals so tend not to go during the summer because of the wait. I do recommend getting there... More

One of my favorite spots. Charming, an old house, turned into a restaurant. Great seafood and they always have a vegetarian option on their specials. It's not too expensive, I'd say moderately priced. Some of my favorite entrees are the stuffed flounder and they're known for their crab cakes. A true treasure for us locals here in Va Beach, always... More

When we want to eat fish that is excellently prepared we always go to Tautogs. It is so fresh and delicious. I've tried most things on the menu and have never been disappointed. I would recommend Tautogs to anyone who would enjoy a delicious meal. The place is small, but has a dining area in the front off of what... More

Located on 23rd street between Atlantic and pacific ave, Tautogs is next to Doc's .....both are wonderful...docs for breakfast or lunch and Tautogs for a special night out. Jeans or dressy ...either way the food is delicious and the services is excellent.
