Doug's is so terrific - fresh food, done fast. High quality and delicious. Only thing is the it is pretty rich! They also have great malted milk shakes!

“Always delicious”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Doug's is one of our favorite places to eat when we visit Skaneateles. The portions are incredibly generous for the price, and the food is delicious. I am a bit of a cole slaw snob and their version is excellent.

“Amazing amount of fish for the price!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was a great lunch stop - excellent fried fish in huge quantities. Their chowder was also tasty. They have a neat train that goes around the ceiling through tunnels - fun for kids and adults.

“A Skaneateles Institution”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Doug's Fish Fry is a longtime favorite of both the residents and tourist crowd of Skaneateles, New York. The fried fish, shrimp, and scallops have been staples on the menu for decades. New innovations, however, include grilled salmon and shrimp. The portions are extremely generous with fries and delicious coleslaw accompanying the dinners. There are also a couple of offerings (hot dogs, chicken fingers) for the non-fish eaters or for fussy children. The atmosphere is loud and bustling and there is a line out the door and down the street during the summer months but everyone agrees that Doug's is always worth the wait!
