We had the steamed shrimp and crab nachos. They have a gluten free menu and the server was very knowledgeable.

A bit "Shishi" restaurant...Opens at 5:30 and there is almost always a line to get in and subsequent 45 min wait by 6pm. Not a "tie on the feed bag" beach style restaurant portions are smaller but quality is good. Wine list is attractive to those that need that sort of thing to go along dinner, But i personally found... More

EAT HERE!! This place is a local favorite, however, it is hard to find. We were trying to avoid all the tourist traps and so happy to have found this place. The layout of the entire restaurant is basically a home. We had a nice romantic dinner on the front porch. The seafood was so fresh, wine and beer cold... More

Tautogs has their own parking lot, which makes it so easy to visit.(parking in that area can be very challenging) We went on a Friday evening around 9 pm and had a 45 minute wait to be seated, so we chose to watch the nearby street performers instead of sitting at the bar. We were seated at a small table... More

The hotel front desk recommended this restaurant and several of her favorite dishes. We were not disappointed! We had a short wait but they have a pleasant outside waiting area with a koi pond and lily pads and it was a beautiful evening. With two inside bars, a nice wine selection we were able to enjoy glass of wine outside... More

We went based on a recommendation from our B&B hosts and it was within walking distance. We had to wait about an hour and a half but they took our name and then we went and sat on the beach front for a while then headed back and sat in their courtyard area with a drink from their bar until...

Maybe my expectations were too high because of the reviews here. But I was disappointed. Crab dip with tortilla chips was pretty good. Hubby and I both got shrimp and grits and it was just bland. Shrimp was fresh but dish was overall boring. Cute vibe inside (didnt mind the wait except the outdoor waiting area was dirty with trash... More

Went to this restaurant based on a recommendation. Food was good and plentiful. Prices reasonable. We went mid-week and without reservations. We were seated immediately, occupancy almost 100%. It is located in a former home, tables inside and also on screen porches. We walked from our hotel as it was located less than a block off of Atlantic Ave. Would... More
