Great Dinner

Great meal for a family of three, not a wonderful selection of choices for children, we had to improvise. The dinner specials were delicious and a fair value. The entire family loved the Nachoes with crab meat.

I have tried eating in several beachfront restaurants and have been disappointed each time in quality and value. I read in some piece of info about Tautogs and wanted to try and find really good sea food. This place was awesome. My mahi dinner unbelieveably good and loved the ambiance. Prices were very resonable

The best seafood I have tasted in a very long time.We had shrimp scampi and a special scallops dish on a puff pastry (yum...and I am not a huge fan of scallops). It was noisy. We had to wait about a half hour to be seated but we got to watch a street show so the time passed quickly.

Excellent good blacken tuna and crab and cheese nachos! We tried 3 other dishes that were ok. We eat and make great seafood so most of the other dishes were just ok. But a good local place to go. go at 6 or 8:30pm. Wait was over an hour.

My girlfriend and I were in Virginia Beach for a girls' night. We enjoyed our dinner at Tautogs. After a late afternoon on the beach, we called before to see about call-ahead seating, and were told that there was only one other two-top waiting. I knew that we wanted to eat here because of the other reviews here on TripAdvisor.... More

Lovely, friendly service and delicious food at very reasonable prices. I had the oysters and She-crab soup - soup was excellent, oysters were decent. Waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Make reservations in advance as they get BUSY!

My fiancé and I came here to eat on our last night at the beach. It was a bit far to walk so we drove. I passed the place twice because it's not identified well and it looks like someone's house. We were seated right away in the front porch area at a table for two. It was very nice.... More

Always good and friendly. Geared more to locals than the tourist trade, but it's a welcoming attitude either way.

This restaurant has a great location and a nice atmosphere. It is cozy and nice in comparison to many other restaurants. But the food is just average. I don't understand all the hype, except that it is probably one of the better restaurants in the area. However, I think that is more a function of the fact that many of... More
