We went there on a Tuesday night and the place was packed by 6:30. Not too bad for a 40 degree night in March. All four of us had amazing entrees. I wish I could remember the waitresses name as she was the best. This place is an old house converted to a restaurant. Very unique. Not your everyday chain... More

My daughters and I were new to the Strip and asked a local to recommend a place for seafood. They recommended Tautogs. The she-crab soup was excellent, as were the catch of the day and fried oysters. The high quality of the food was enhanced by the cozy decor and top-notch service. The experience was topped-off perfectly by the good-quality... More

We visited for the first time as a group spending more than $400.00. Food was good, no complaint there. When we left the restaurant, our car was gone from the empty lot at the empty hotel directly across the street and a taxi from nowhere was waiting for us. It seemed as though he had been informed that we would... More

Loved Tautogs so much that I came two nights in the row. What can I say, the food is simply amazing! The first night I had the Swordfish Special with She-Crab soup. First off, the She-Crab sup was so delicious I wish I had more. The Swordfish, was one of the best meals I ever had, and it was the... More

Fantastic service, great fresh food and a cool atmosphere. I ate here twice during a 5 night stay and would have been back more but they were closed due to a winter storm one night. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Recommended by hotel staff since it's close to where we're staying. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the outstanding food. Service was excellent. May even go back tomorrow night!
