We eat at Doug’s Fish Fry multiple times when we are visiting family in Syracuse. Doug’s has the BEST fish sandwich and the service can’t be beat. Their location near Skaneateles lakes is ideal too!

We recently visited Doug’s Fish Fry in Cortland NY and it was as good as always. I personally had the scallops lunch plate. It was a nice portion of fried scallops and two sides. I chose cabbage salad and onion rings. It was delicious. Take...out only is available at this time because of The Covid19 virus. We will return!More

We’re in Cortland twice each month. Once in a while we “treat” ourselves to fried food and Doug’s is nothing but. Fried fish, fried chips, fried onion-rings, fried chicken, and, if you’re lucky, the best dish they make, fried oysters. It’s not a restaurant (no...table service) but it’s eatable. The cole-slaw’s not bad at all.More

We visit this location several times a year. The fish is always fresh, tastes great, and the recipe is always the same. I had the fried shrimp which was very goid. Friend had fish sandwich which he said was very good. Theres plenty if parking...and lots of tables to sit at inside and eat if you chose to do so.More

As always a excellent lunch. Plenty of paved parking and what a friendly staff. Upon entering we choose what we were going to have (the lunch special), ordered, seated ourselves and visied the condiment table to obtain our plastic utensils etc... Tartar sauce, kepchup, mustard,...etc... available for those that want it! Within a short time, named called out over load speaker and acquired our order with a extremely pleasant female saying "enjoy". Each of our orders were plentiful, reasonbly prices, fresh and as usual EXCELLENT. If one enjoys fish food then this is a place to dine!More

Hate at Doug's fish Fry of Cortland on our vacation ordered the scallops chicken strips and shrimp dinner. All were served hot fresh and very tasty. Restaurant is a local favorite clean and friendly service. Would eat hair again if the opportunity presented itself.
