Food was fresh and delicious. I was looking for a place that had vegan options as well as seafood options. We were so glad that we found Tautogs everything was just perfect.

Quiet place, nice atmosphere. Food was pretty good and well priced. We enjoyed eating at their sister restaurant next door, Doc Taylors.

Even in the off season, get there early or be prepared to wait. Everything dish here was well prepared and the wine list was surprisingly strong and fairly priced. Looking forward to going back again.

You absolutely can not get into Tautogs without a long wait during tourist season. Located in a quaint 1920s type house the owners serve up sone of the very best seafood expertly prepared for a very reasonable price.
