This restaurant continues to amaze us with wonderful dining, fantastic service, reasonable prices and so much more. A must each time we get back to VA Beach.

It's a laid back feel with great dinners. Old beach house from circa 1920s. Food is well thought out, fresh main dishes with interesting twists on traditional meals. Come in for a drink and something at the bar even if your alone. You'll feel like a native when you leave.

We had dinner here last week and it was really quite good. We began with a cup of She-crab soup and Benny's Oysters. Both of them were delicious and if you like a warm oyster appetizer you should try these. They are a little different but very nice. We were tempted to try the Flounder in a bag but the... More

I was very excited about eating some good seafood while I was visiting VA Beach for work. Tautogs did not disappoint! We had a large group, and they accommodated us well. The crab nachos were my favorite, but everything was very good. A few of us tried bites of each other's plates and I didn't have one bite that wasn't... More

Food and service was awesome! What more can I say. Plus added bonus, had a local craft brewery on tap that I love!. Great dinner.

Visited restaurant on a Saturday night around 7 PM. Very crowded very noisy. Needed to wait 35-40 minutes to get a table. Once seated the waitress was more than satisfactory. Food came quickly. The food was very good. Cost was reasonable considering our dinners were seafood. Would highly recommend

Went there with three other couples on a Saturday night. Reservations was at 5:30; they were slammed later on. Drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts were as yummy as always. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. We have loved this place for years. We're going to go there again and again! Tautogs consistently exceeds our expectations. It gets crowded and with...

Great variety of foods...very eclectic and quaint in an old house. Food was flavorful and original. Prices very reasonable. Generous portions. Place was packed off season...well worth the wait.

Really wanted to eat here, it was raining and cold and parking was an issue. We finally parked and walked up- they were closed for a private party! No sign, no postings....not a way to do business I would say.

Tautogs had been recommended to us several times on prior trips and this weekend we finally got the opportunity to try it, and unfortunately, it left us very disappointed. Dinner started great with a delicious Cajun corn chowder that both my with and I enjoyed. Sadly, that was the highlight of our meal. Her Rajun Cajun shrimp was "fine" as... More
