“Tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I expected something unique - just fried fish on hamburger bun. I had steamed clams (very small) which were good. The price was right, also.

“Biggest fish sandwich I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

A local recommended we go here and the fish was excellent. I got the fish chowder and my husband got the gumbo. I didn't try his but he said my chowder tasted better. I would have not ordered the soup if I would have known how big the servings were. This place was so good my husband wanted to go the next day for lunch.

“Good fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you like fried fish, this is the place to go. We were there midweek off season, so no wait. By the time we paid, our order was up. Perfectly seasoned, hot and crispy fish for a very reasonable price. Skip the fries. Convenient location in the heart of this pretty town.

“A Place You Don't Want To Miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Saw rave reviews for Doug's so put it on our list of things to do. It's perfect for lunch with or without kids. Although the little ones would enjoy the train that runs around the ceiling inside. Since it was a Monday in September after Labor Day, we didn't experience any big lines. We ordered the Fried Scallops meal, which came with fries and slaw. The scallops were excellent, not too much breading, cole slaw had a unique flavor, and fries were the raw cut potato style. We were too stuffed for the dessert advertised (Peach Sundae), but it sure looked good. The price is what you would expect to pay for anything with scallops.

“Great Classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The first sign that this place is a classic is the line that extends out on to the sidewalk of people waiting to place their orders. Doug's was a trip back in time to simple, fresh and well executed fish. We had two fish and onion dinners that were superb. No frills honest food done rught. You owe yourself a lunch or dinner at Doug's!
