I've been here several times and I have to stop and get some additional dinners to go. Everything on their menu is second to none in my opinion, I just wish I was able to go through town more often.

We love Doug's. We usually get chicken, fish and one of the seafood soups and share as a family. Their onion rings are very good- best when ordered extra crispy. The milkshakes are made fresh- not from a machine, and are the absolute best.

We can always count on Doug's to have delicious fried fish, tasty cole slaw and naughty-good onion rings. Love their seafood chowder too. Tried the grilled salmon for the first time--very good!
