The shrimp Po boy is a recent addition to the menu at the fry and what a really tasty addition to the already fine menu. The shrimp at grilled not fried and they are accented with a bed of coleslaw and topped with a dressing that does not overpower the flavor of the shrimp. Served on a toasted bun with... More

We always get the fish dinner and share it. It's huge! Albeit fried, nothing tastes greasy. The fish is so flaky and flavorful. The onion rings are make with real onions. And it's a treat if you get to meet Doug. :)

The fish dinner was terrific. I'd have to say the roll that the sandwich came on was vestigial. There was so much good fish that we skipped the bread and focused on the moist and tender fish and the incredibly sweet and tasty onion rings. Huge portions. You've been warned.

Whenever I'm in Skaneateles I visit Doug's Fish Fry for the fabulous fish sandwich and fries. Order from the counter from friendly staff, grab a table and wait for your fish to be fried.

This was by far the BEST fish sandwich I have ever had. Cooked to perfection, not greasy at all and very light! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Very basic restaurant with wonderful food.

My wife and I come here a lot for lunch or early dinner. Pretty consistent good, fresh food. Really can not go wrong with the fish sandwich or fried shrimp. Price is reasonable. Don't be concerned with the long lines if they exist. They move people through quickly. Only downside is they do not give refills on soda / pop.... More

Went to Skaneatles on Labor Day weekend. The last time I ate at Dougs was when I was 18 and living in Auburn. I'm now 45. It's as great now as it was then. The food is great the service and atmosphere is just as good. Living in Florida now, you would think Dougs could not compare to Florida seafood.... More
