“Best Lobster Bisque Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I've traveled up and down the east coast, up through New England and all the way to Key West. I've been to 5 star resturaunts and nothing can compare to Doug's Lobster Bisque

“Very good fish & other”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

always very good fish and seafood, plus some others offerings (but my wife always gets the scallops and I get the fish sandwich) and we are from Maine where good fresh seafood is always available...but we still enjoy this upstate NY very casual restaurant.

“Very Average Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Fish had no flavor, cole slaw was good. My friend didn't like the beer. No atmosphere. We would not go back.

“Local Classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

A central NY classic. Light and flaky fish, fresh coleslaw, hand cut fries and onion rings, freshly packed tartar and cocktail sauces...do I need to say anymore?

Everything is tasty - the batter is light and doesn't clump up. The fresh cut fries and onion rings are plentiful. That's the biggest thing to mention - the portion size. You'll get what looks like half a fish on a sesame seed bun and a large order of fries or rings on your plate.

In the mood for a beer? They serve Saranac and others. Goes well with the fish.

This is a great place to bring the family and have a filling, flavorful meal at a great price.
