Nice place

The food is good and reasonably priced for a location so close to the beach. Free small parking lot in the back. Wait staff is uneven since our waiter was very slow and disorganized while I noticed other staff being super friendly and efficient. Get there before 6:30 and wait time should be... read more

Definitely not worth all the hype. The restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel concierge as well as a high ranking on tripadvisor. Main issue was that the food lacked flavor. The flounder dish was very bland. The vegetarian dish also lacked flavor. I ordered a Moscow mule and it was served in a water glass even though there were... More

Recommended by our hotel concierge Tautogs did not live up to its hype. Crab cakes were two small balls consisting of mainly bread crumbs. The vegetable plate had little flavor and needed more seasoning or sauce of some sort. The stuffed flounder was found to be bland.

I went to Tautogs during a friend's bachelorette weekend and was very happy with the service. We were seated a few minutes before our reservation time and sat on the porch with an awesome ocean breeze. The food was all very good and reasonably priced. Some reviews have commented on slow service, but our group of 7 was in and... More

Visited with family (2 adults and 4 children) at 7 PM. Told it was an hour wait. Ordered drinks and appetizers at the bar -- 3 bowls of Crab Soup, 1 crab nachos. Got the nachos in 20 minutes, never got the soup. Finally seated at 8:55 PM. Waitress did get us the soups, and other ordered food came about... More

Tautog's used to be the jewel of the beach. On our to trips to VB, we would make it a point to eat there multiple times. Not this time, though; it has slipped a little. The food, although ok, was not outstanding as we have come to expect. Worse, the service was only mediocre, and this was on a Tuesday... More

We stopped on with our two small kids and went to eat dinner early in the evening. The ambiance was fun and the food was good. Service was a bit slow and there was no real kids menu to speak of. Otherwise, we enjoyed the experience.
