Tautogs has their own parking lot, which makes it so easy to visit.(parking in that area can be very challenging) We went on a Friday evening around 9 pm and had a 45 minute wait to be seated, so we chose to watch the nearby street performers instead of sitting at the bar. We were seated at a small table... More

The hotel front desk recommended this restaurant and several of her favorite dishes. We were not disappointed! We had a short wait but they have a pleasant outside waiting area with a koi pond and lily pads and it was a beautiful evening. With two inside bars, a nice wine selection we were able to enjoy glass of wine outside... More

We went based on a recommendation from our B&B hosts and it was within walking distance. We had to wait about an hour and a half but they took our name and then we went and sat on the beach front for a while then headed back and sat in their courtyard area with a drink from their bar until...

Maybe my expectations were too high because of the reviews here. But I was disappointed. Crab dip with tortilla chips was pretty good. Hubby and I both got shrimp and grits and it was just bland. Shrimp was fresh but dish was overall boring. Cute vibe inside (didnt mind the wait except the outdoor waiting area was dirty with trash... More

Went to this restaurant based on a recommendation. Food was good and plentiful. Prices reasonable. We went mid-week and without reservations. We were seated immediately, occupancy almost 100%. It is located in a former home, tables inside and also on screen porches. We walked from our hotel as it was located less than a block off of Atlantic Ave. Would... More

As a resident of Virginia Beach, this is one of my go-to places. (Usually when the tourists aren't in town.) I love the cozy atmosphere. Nothing like sitting beside the fireplace in the winter or on the porch in warmer weather. The waitstaff is very helpful, but does not hover. They have a great selection of wines at reasonable prices.... More

Went for dinner with the family. While they don't have a kids menu they accommodated my son who wanted Mac and Cheese which was delicious. Our youngest had the four cheese flat bread which was good as well while my husband and I shared the Crab Nachos. For dinner I had the Steak while my husband had the blackened tuna.... More

This dinner saved our vacation after a horrible meal at our hotel earlier in the day. This seafood restaurant serves excellent fish, prepared with care, and served by a friendly, attentive staff. I am struggling to find a down-side to this place. The she-crab soup was a delicious opener. The tuna poke appetizer was too sweet for my taste but... More
