One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at!

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!

Never had a bad meal here and love to take out-of-towners to Tautogs It is a perfect example of VA Beach hospitality, history and incredible food.
