DOUG'S is the best fish fry in all of upstate NY. And one of the best in the Northeast. A clean place with great sides as well. You can't stop in Skaneateles without visiting DOUG'S.

This is the best fish fry I've ever had. The portions are absolutely huge and the price is great. Being from the south I was skeptical but this place is worth the hype. I'd definitely recommend going here.

No, the lake's across the street. No view except for your fellow diners and a train set that goes around on the ceiling.

Grilled is best with just natural taste and Doug's has a delicious sauce they drizzle over that is probably gluten free? I had salmon grilled and my wife had shrimp the same way due to digestive issues as well.
