Worth the wait!

Great food-LONG line on weekends! That being said, the food and atmosphere are worth the wait! The best time to go is during the week, It gets crazy busy on the weekends! The quality of food never wavers and always pleases!

After seeing the reviews, hubby and I decided to eat here. Expect a long line and no parking because it's 1 of the best places to eat for breakfast! You will feel at home and see the locals here.

I have eaten here more times than I can remember to count. It's HANDS DOWN the BEST breakfast spot in Virginia Beach. Now I will start off by saying it's NOT the prettiest place but it does have a cool history. It's a small place that looks like a house from outside. I lived here in vb for about 12... More

My wife and I always go out of our way to eat breakfast at Doc Taylor's when we are in VA Beach. Usually, the food and service is excellent, but not this time. We expected the 15-30 minute wait for a table, enjoying their inexpensive bloody marys always made the wait enjoyable. But the bartender was rude this visit and... More

We had an absolutely charming time at Doc Taylor's. Be prepared to wait for a table, or do what we did and grab a spot at the bar. The food was great and they have the best $2.50 Bloody Mary's and mimosas! Great staff experience too. Don't miss it!

Doc Taylors is an old beach house turned into a breakfast/lunch restaurant. It was by far the most authentic restaurant my wife and I ate at. The Hokie turkey burgers were quite good as were the fried green tomatoes and fries. Prices were very reasonable. Several drinks are priced at $2.50 including their Bloody Marys which We highly recommend. (Great... More

Super busy place because they have the best breakfast. If you sit at the kitchen bar, you'll have a hard time deciding what to eat, as everything look so good as it's made.
