OK, I'll probably get in trouble for this one. This is a local's hangout, that doesn't even have a sign out front. It is next to Tautogs on 23rd Street between Atlantic and Pacific. If tourists start showing up, I guess I am to blame. We stopped in for breakfast recently, and the food was great. I got eggs benedict... More

We had a great breakfast of organic eggs, pancakes, good coffee and fresh fruit in this converted beach house. Very busy, probably very popular with locals. The staff was very friendly.

We were a party of 6 and needed to wait about 20 min to be seated. Once we were seated there were plenty of empty tables so not sure why the long wait. However the food and service once seated were great. Everyone's food arrived exactly as ordered and tasted delicious. Our waiter Austin was really good. We will be... More

Most of the reviews were spot on even to the point that the toast was not very toasted. It's true the toast was just heated up very good rye bread not... More

Went to Doc Taylor's with friends for a late breakfast. Finding the spot and the entrance was a bit difficult, since there are no very large signs outside the door. However the place was worth the effort of search. Typical American breakfast was on the menu, but also some more healthy options like granolas or oatmeals. The place is very... More

I go here at least once a month, the food is always so good, the drinks are cheap and it's always a good time. Expect a wait on the weekends, hit the little lounge next door,grab a drink and enjoy the wait. Do worth it.

When we walked in the person at the door stopped us, literally, and asked if we had a reservation when the posted sign indication that RESERVATIONS WERE NOT REQUIRED. WALK-INS WELCOME. So we proceeded inside w/o reservations, ordered Clam Chowder. When received, the chowder was clear with potatoes and a few clams. Sent it back. Chef came out with bowl... More

Eat breakfast here every time we stay at VA Beach. They even have organic eggs :) Servers are friendly, coffee is great, and they even have special mixed drinks for brunch.

Growing up in the area as a teenager, we would always welcome the tourists, and would be glad when they left. Tautog's is one of those locations that you bring your friends from out of town, when they want excellent seafood, and great appetizers. The flounder in a bag is always a safe choice. Listen to the daily specials, as... More
