Ensconced in a modest beach cottage off the main drag, this gem of a restaurant has fantastic she crab soup...order lots of it! The four of us had different dishes, all good: stuffed flounder in a bag (truly!), shrimp and grits, raw oysters, nice and plump. Bread pudding desert tasted like French toast and was excellent. Wonderful server talked a mile a minute and was most entertaining. Don't miss!

We ate at Tautog's our first night of 3 at VB, and it was so good we returned the 3rd night. Casual atmosphere with attentive service. Menu primarily seafood - delicious and creative. If the mixed seafood risotto special happens to be on the menu, be sure to order it.

I was certainly surprised to find my family in an honest to goodness beach house that has been converted into a truly charming restaurant. The server was very helpful and knew her menu. My daughter is a non-seafood eater and her suggestion of the chowder, a Greek salad, and garlic bread was perfect. The rest of us took advantage of the extensive choices. The shrimp and grits were excellent, the seafood salads exceptional. Definitely many return visits are in the future.

We were in Virginia Beach for their Historic Garden Week tour. Stayed on the oceanfront and headed to Tautog's. Although the specials were tempting, we stuck with tried-and-true favorites. The steamed shrimp were super tender and delightfully spicy! The flounder in a bag was succulent and delicious with crab and shrimp stuffing. The key lime pie, which we split, was tart, creamy, and hit the spot!

The atmosphere is a beachy, hometown feeling. Porch seating, booths, tables, all very cozy and friendly.

The best part was the service. Even with COVID protocols, super friendly, knew the menu, knew the wine list and beer list. Very welcoming atmosphere. You know it is a good place when you haven't finished your meal and you are already planning what your will get "next time"! Kudos to Tautog's for persevering! See you again soon!
