Tremendous find. It is literally an old beach cottage. The atmosphere was so comfortable. Our server, Dave, could not have been better. He was very personable. It almost goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway... Our food was sensational. Everyone should consider Tautog's when...More

We enjoyed the crazy, loud atmosphere as it is a popular place. The nachos were overpriced and we have received much bigger portions at other places. The Crabcake sandwich was $12 and the Catfish Po Boy was $11. Chips rather than fries came with these...More

Read the reviews and set expectations for average fare at high prices, but decided to give it a shot anyway as I am visiting the beach on vacation so that is pretty much par for the course... Went early (5:30) on a Saturday night and...More
