“Best fish fry around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

You can always count on Doug's for the best fish in the area. It is lightly battered, never greasy and a generous portion. We go miles out of our way to have fish at Doug's.

“No To Be Missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Major icon for fresh seafood, where people line-up around the block. Go early. A great experience. Informal but the real deal.

“Very Crowded, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

I visited last night. The menu is variable, but quite extensive last night.

Had the good Fish Chowder (needed pepper); tender Fried Clams, and a medium glass (10 oz cup) of OK white jug wine for about $18. The Honey/Curry sauce was quite good with the clams.

It's a large venue with plenty of seating; one orders at the counter and waits until the order is ready for pick-up.

On street metered parking and free parking in the rear.

If you can handle really good and light fried food, it's worth a visit.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

The only thing better than the fish is the onion rings -- and the only thing better than the onions is the fish chowder. Love Doug's. Great food and great value.

“Great serving sizes for a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Our family found Doug's Fish Fry to be a real friendly place place to eat. The fried haddock portions are generous and delicious. The coleslaw is great, and we got the tasty fries with one platter and the wonderful onion rings with another. The selection of a few choices of beer makes the meal really hit the spot.
