Out of all the times we have been to Skaneateles, we have never stopped at Doug's. And, we know it is a must. Well, I think the thing to order is fried fish. We both ordered the lobster roll and it was very disappointing, It...More

A visit to Skaneateles Lake isn’t complete without a stop at Doug’s Fish Fry. It had been years since I was here, but the menu was still the same! Their Fried Fish Sandwich is so big, crunchy and delicious. They really pack people into Doug’s...More

Best seafood around. Grilled or fried. Can't get any fresher. Always consistent!!! We go at least twice a month. Thank goodness they are open all year round.

The fish fry is the king here. It’s non greasy and delicious. The fries on the other hand were disgusting to look at and to eat. They looked shriveled and tasted bitter. Mural on the wall adds for a cute touch. We checked this one...More

We were driving home from Boston to Rochester on 8/12/18 when we decided to stop in at Doug’s Fish Fry, an establishment we hadn’t frequented for quite some time. Arriving in Skaneateles about 4pm, we found the line for Doug’s out the door. Surmising that...More

No, the lake's across the street. No view except for your fellow diners and a train set that goes around on the ceiling.

Grilled is best with just natural taste and Doug's has a delicious sauce they drizzle over that is probably gluten free? I had salmon grilled and my wife had shrimp the same way due to digestive issues as well.
