Consistent-fresh and hot! Although the lines get a little long come summertime, we stop here quite often all year long. The only place better........The Fisherman's Grill-Portland Maine.

A classic fish house! Great people, very casual. Great for the kids, too. Totally comfortable, usually nicely busy. On fridays... very busy! Any fish they serve is delicious. Wine is poured to the very lip of the glass!

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.
