“Great food!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited Skaneateles in October, and even though it was Saturday there was no line. Ordering was quick and our food was ready in 5 minutes. Both fish and fried clams were hot and simply excellent. Not so much french fries which were warm, not hot - but we didn't come for them anyway. Very casual sitting, however the aquarium is doing a good job entertaining children. I wouldn't choose this place for a romantic dinner, but if you are up for good food and not going to care about lake views or sitting arrangements - this is a place for you. Also portions are huge and prices are low.

“Best fish fry around!”
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”
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...”
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!”
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.
