We'd been recommended Doug's by several people who told us how brilliant this was. The restaurant was packed at 5pm with couples and families so we thought it must be good. We all ordered a fish dinner for $9.99 - which we thought was reasonable. The food came pretty quickly (on paper plates with plastic cutlery) and there was a... More

Other than so many people like it and there may be lines, why not enjoy a great place with great food for a very reasonable price. Have a milkshake, a wine or beer with your seafood and enjoy. Not into seafood? Try their grilled chicken sandwich.

Well known in the area. If your looking for that fresh fried fish dinner, this is the place. Portion size good, prices average and different days there are different items available. Oysters on Friday ! The lobster roll was excellent. I had the scallops, which were tasty, and with a good amount to fill me up. Local Adirondack beer on... More

What's not to like?? Fresh fish, cooked while you wait, homemade french fries and onion rings, shrimp that are really large, and great ice cream right there! Has the atmosphere of a fish market right on the ocean.

When visiting the Syracuse and Skaneateles area a stop at Doug's Fish Fry is always a treat and a must do activity! This visit - just like all prior stops at Doug's - was spot on for a VERY large fish sandwich with the freshest, hottest, tastiest fish ever. A side of French fries and an icy cold LaBatts draft...

You know you are going to Doug's for the fried fish, though their lobster rolls are really great. The fried fish portions are huge, and since they use peanut oil that is changed regularly, there isn't the greasiness you might get elsewhere. You have to experience this as part of your visit!

Delicious outsized portioned fried fish sandwiches and delicious cole slaw. I passed on the fries only because in my mind I could not justify eating all that fried food. But honesty this meal was very satisfying and reasonably priced! Rgds, Not so Skinny and definitely not an Atlas anymore or ever

If you're heading to the Finger Lakes, you should seriously consider a swing through Skaneateles for lunch or dinner at Doug's Fish Fry. So fresh and crispy. They make a big deal about the oil they use and rightly so. It makes a difference. And if you don't like fried fish, don't despair. There are lots of options (the shrimp... More

Lunch at Doug's is always a stop on our visits to Skaneateles. Big portions, consistently good food. Diet later and go for the fish plate dinner.

I've been going to Doug's every summer since I was a baby. It's not summer without a fish fry or a Hoffmanns hot dog at Doug's. Portions are huge and quality is on point. Fresh fish cooked well. My husband adores the fried shrimp and the curry dipping sauce. Great, fun atmosphere and very family friendly. Large space able to... More
