“Yummy salmon.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Happened into the place 2 hours away from home. This was a place where you order at a window and seat yourself; thus no need for a tip. Had salmon, clam soup, and a peach drink. Ran less than $10. Interesting decor with a little train running around the room and a tank with blue and yellow fish. Only drawbacks, the table we picked had to be wiped off and parking difficult to find - this is a tourist town.

“Lots of fun, great fish 'n' chips”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We've been going to Doug's for years and are never disappointed. The fish 'n' chips are delicious and really filling. Outstanding. Great place to bring kids. Try Doug's beer, too, if you like a bitter, hoppy brew. There's also ice cream if your stomach hasn't exploded by the time you're done with the fish. Oh, the onion rings are excellent. Yay, Doug's!

“AWESOME Seafood for Cheap!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Stopped here on our trip along the Seneca/Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. It was easy to see that this is a local favorite for great seafood at reasonable prices.

The lobster and fish dinners are both outstanding choices. Great coleslaw too!

You really can't beat a place that has a little electric train running around the restaurant.

Also, the location is right near Skaneateles Lake which - if you are there around dusk - makes a great picture.
