The best shrimp cocktail in the area, bar none. Delicious fried fish, terrific fries, and sometimes scallops. Fresh fruit ice cream sundaes. The long line can be a pain on summer weekends, but the great food and low prices make the lines understandable.

We ended up in Skaneateles, NY for weekend get away for some rest. We were going to go to a "fancy" restaurant but ended up here at Doug's Fish Fry. Young man behind counter suggested the fish fry when we almost ordered something else and we were grateful to him as it was AMAZINGLY good. We tried to give him a tip afterward but he couldn't take it :( It was very good food, a busy place, a little warm in there, but not bad. The staff is friendly and they were busy keeping the place tidy. It was a Sat night. I'm sure family's adore this place with the train going overhead. We saw many young ones. The wall mural was also beautiful as was a gorgeous fish tank. You won't be dissappointed in your meal here! Casual and delicious food. We each had a beer too.

This friendly place serves fresh hot fried fish along with fries and slaw as part of their fish dinner plate. Two can split a dinner if you get a second fish sandwich!

Typical fish and chip joint. Don't know what all the hype is about but if you are in the mood for fish and chips ... its the go-to restaurant in town.

My grandmother used to go to this place, and I go with my mother when home and visiting the family cemetery, a nice outing with terrific fish.

The fish is nicely battered and always crispy and the sides of slaw and baked beans are excellent. The menu is quite diverse and everything I have had has always been excellent.

They have outside seating and indoor, you order and pay at the counter, then pick up your food.

Nothing fancy but a nice decor and a stones throw from the lake. The town is right on the lake and a nice place to stroll around.

The only quirk is they seem to hate Bill and Hillary Clinton and had been quoted as we will not serve them here. But good food trumps odd politics.

Portions are very generous and the price cannot be beat.
