Dinners are always plentiful and prepared while you wait. Fish is fresh and flakey just as fresh seafood should be. My favorite is the grilled shrimp. We eat there at least once a month.

We used to be frequent patrons at Doug's but it seems since the summer their food quality has gone done. Last time we ate here it seemed as though they fried the fries in the same oil as the fish as it tasted like fish. The fish wasn't flaky as it usually is and I actually didn't even eat half of it before I threw it out. Their lobster bisque is still really good and their prices are the norm. Have been very disappointed with them as of late.

We are 1.5 hrs away from Doug's, but usually stop here when in Skaneateles. This past weekend we tried the lobster roll for the first time - it is served hot with melted butter on it on a roll. Amazing - the best ever. This is what I will get whenever I visit in the future. I've had lobster rolls in Maine but they are typically served cold with mayo; these are hot and succulent- try it.

Doug's Fish Fry is a can't miss in Skaneateles. Get the fish dinner - big enough to split for two! It's not the healthiest option -- fried fish and french fries -- but delicious. They do have a big menu now so there is something for every palate. Quite scrumptious.

The best spot for a quick meal in Skaneateles. The food is always fresh, the staff welcoming and the atmosphere is fun. The chowder or gumbo are always a good bet.
