Fish is very good and service is fairly fast. The fish dinners have gotten smaller but are still a good buy.

Have been going to all of the Doug's establishments for years, including the mobile units. Hands down, they have the freshest fried seafood around at excellent prices. There is nothing wrong with the oil as they change it several times a day. Everything straight across the board is hot, crunchy and flavorful. Their fries are hand cut fries that taste... More

Every visit back to Cortland to see family & friends isn't complete without eating here at least once. Fresh fish daily & portions not found anyplace else can't be beat. The only downside is there is no baked or broiled options.

Food is good if fried fish is your thing, but we like Skeaneatles Doug's Fish Fry better. No outdoor seating here. It is like a scaled-down version of the real thing at the lake. Still, it is good. Nothing to complain about. Facility is clean. Guess it is just the ho-hum of predictable that got it this rating.

Excellent ! Fried fish and scallops piping hot, done perfectly. Onion rings the best I've ever had anywhere. REAL milkshakes very refreshing. Staff were pleasant; dining room clean and relaxing on this Sunday afternoon. Only problem is we live too far away to come frequently; You can bet your life we will stop here everytime we come through the area... More

Doug's Fish Fry has become a regular stop when I am in the Cortland area. Their fish fry is cod - a rarity. The lobster bisque is a winner - my 11 year old nephew had never tried lobster bisque and was surprised how much he liked it. For a table of 5, we needed only one order of onion... More

Since we tried them again earlier this year, Doug's has become a regular stop for a delicious, take home fish fry and seafood chowder.
