I was expecting more variety. And we also had a 5 year old child with us. They do NOT have a kids menu at all. And if you have picky kids then don't go here. That being said the crab dip we had was very good. My fiance had tuna which he thought was excellent. My in laws had the... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and was expecting everything to be top notch. Was a little disappointed how the meals where prepared, the layout of the plates as well as the freshness of the food was just not there. You could taste what part of the meal they prepared in the morning and what part was made to... More

Took the family here for dinner. The food was outstanding. And people who read my reviews know that I don't give that out lately. The food was very well balanced, cook properly, serve hot, and the presentation was quite good. This is not a pretentious place. Very relaxed atmosphere, with really knowledgeable staff, nice people, and just darn good food.... More

The food was very original and well presented. Everything that we ordered came out first class. It was a forty minute wait, but well worth it. Best crab cakes ever!

We were told by a number of the locals that Tautogs is the place to go for an wonderful experience. The restaurant is actually a cottage converted into a dinning area. Food was terrific, service exceptional, incredible value and a great atmosphere. We went back twice we enjoyed it so much.

Recommended by locals and Tautogs is a very good place for seafood, Definitely out of the way and not a tourist/beach goer promoted restaurant. No coupons and no big promotions. Will definitely go back. Very busy, however the wait time is not too long. Nice bar to wait.

This is where the locals go to eat and for good reason. We came here for lunch and started off with the She-crab soup and it was nice. We had the seared tuna sandwich and our son had a burger. All were perfectly cooked. The waitress was friendly and attentive.

Best food, best value, very affordable wine list, innovative daily specials! We visit VA. Beach 6-8 times a year and always stop in to Tautogs for dinner. Always busy but have a glass of wine or two at the bar...its well worth the wait.
