When our out of town family and friends return to the area they want to go to Davidson's for their fish. Family owned and the third generation is now operating the restaurant.

This place was busy for a Tuesday night and we soon found out why - the fish dinner! The smaller size is still large. Did not have room to try a dessert. Our waitress was nice and experienced. Would definitely go back.

We wanted a fish fry on a Monday night and this restaurant was perfect. Large portions and very good. They do not sell alcohol and you can't BYOB. Clean and very helpful staff.

Fish fry is always available and you can't go wrong. if you don't have a big appetite, settle for a fish sandwich - it's big too. The fish/chicken combo is great too. this is not healthy food, just good. generous portions.

Davidsons is a "through back" family style restaurant and has been a steady staple at Chautauqua Lake for over 50 years. Very good fish fry dinners at a reasonable cost. Service was a bit rushed but very kind. Only suggestion I have for management regards...More

I believe it was around $12.00 or 12.99. There about— but it was well worth it If you go there you must try it — or won’t be disappointed
