Every time we go to Virgina Beach we also plan on having at least one meal at Tautog's. They always have good, fresh food and delicious specials. We had the chance to bring my parents there for the first time and they enjoyed it. I knew they would. It can get crowded and during peak season I have seen lines... More

I ate at Tautgos 3 times this past week. It may be the best restaurant in Virginia Beach. I had the Mahi Mahi which was the best meal of the three. The second best was the blackened tuna. Also very good. I then had the tuna Martinique, which was good, but not as tasty as the others. I recommend the... More

Across the street from the beach, not on the beach. My wife and I met up with her sister and partner for dinner and they recommended this place (and live in Virginia Beach). We sat in the bar and had drinks while we waited for a table. A short wait, we were seated and ordered a bottle of Syrah ($32.95)... More

I have lived in Virginia Beach for 27 years and there are only a handful of restaurants that are always a pleasure - and Tautogs is one of them. They provide consistent quality at a reasonable price - and they are only about 100 yards from the beach. We enjoy going there all year - and appreciate the specials -... More

Great spot. Great food, drink and service. Priced right! I go to Tautog's every visit to VA Beach. It is consistently good every year.

Cozy atmosphere. It's a traditional beach cottage turned restaurant and wonderful to go to whether winter or summer. I prefer winter/fall/spring myself to avoid the tourist crowds. I would highly recommend the crab nachos! WARNING - you will not want to share. 😄

We started with oysters Benny that were OK. We had the crab cakes with seasoned new potatoes. The portions were small, but very reasonable. They served the crab cakes with their Granny Smith tarter sauce, and we never tasted a better one. Our server Ashley did a great job.

We were in VA beach during the off season so we got right in. The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. I asked the waiter if he could recommend a light, sweet wine and he took off and brought me the perfect one. Dinner was good, but everyone agreed it was average. We all had dessert and didn't regret... More

I like restaurants with no signs. We came for dinner just before the restaurant closed which is always a schetchy time of hit or miss quality at most places since often the primary crew has gone for the evening. Not the case at Tautogs. The star of our table was the raw tuna over a avacado sauce (not quite guacamole... More

"Tautog's" is one of our "go to places " when we visit Virginia beach, we love the cottage style house its located in , we sat in front of the fireplace so it was nice and cozy, our waitress was excellent and our food was very tasty. We both had the small Greek salad which actually wasn't that small, then... More
