Can't beat it for an easy dinner, homey, friendly, efficient, fun it's a great place for a truly casual meal. Fridays during summer are packed.

“Sooo goood”

We ate lunch at Dougs and had the best grilled chicken sandwiches! You have to try the honey curry sauce. Absolutely fabulous!

“Greasy Mess”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2007

If you like huge portions of greasy fried fish, this is your place. We've tried it a few times (favorite amongst our extended family), always hoping it will be better than the last but we've given up. Grease overtakes the fish, the fries/onion rings taste like the fishy grease and I had the worst seafood bisque there. It's super casual - stand in line, picnic tables, serve yourself....ugh...guess that meets some people's criteria. With Blue Water Grill right down the road, why go here for a casual meal??? Won't cost you much more to be waited on and eat healthy and fresh. This place is a little gross....greasy (I know I said that but can't stress it enough), small (not in cozy way either) and staff yelling at each other and bumping into one another behind the counter. Stressful. Have the TUMS handy.
