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.

My girlfriend and I took my mother and my brother to Doug's Fish Fry to celebrate her 82 birthday. Tuesday has its special fried clams. Let me tell you, they are the best in the area. The portion is larger than I have seen in any other restaurants. The clams were cooked to perfection. To complement the dinner you can... More

The service is quick including the cooking time. Everything is cooked when ordered. They do takeout and sit down. Once you order you find a table or booth and wait for your na,e to be called. You then pick up your food. If you want you can stand and watch them cook the food. Most is fried but they put... More

If I am ever in the area an want my dose of seafood to Doug's I go. Love the seafood chowder and the specialties that they serve. Great place to stop - casual dress and fun atmosphere.
