We were in the area touring and ended up with car troubles. We decided to pass time walking the town and ALL the locals said if were in town for lunch we have to go to Doug’s. My favorite was the gumbo. Nice to find some okra this far north. And the shrimp skewers were delicious. Limited but nice selection of beers on tap. Would gladly go back.

Overly hyped cafeteria, but with good fried fish. Best thing about it: Order a glass of wine and it comes in a good sized plastic cup filled to the brim. The sides are pretty mediocre. Go for the experience but don't expect great food.

Doug's Fish Fry

Skaneateles

Not for people with peanut allergies

532171655

I would like to make people aware that have food allergies to peanuts that Doug's Fish Fry is not the place you want to be. We were informed not at the door but after we got inside the building and a sign above the ordering station said that they use peanut oil for everything. And that my girlfriend should not be in the store if she has a peanut allergy.

First of all why would any company need to use peanut oil with the amount of people who have allergies to it? I'm sure that there are plenty of other safe oils that would work in this case.

But not to post a sign outside on the door before you enter the building and become exposed to the peanut oil in the air seems a bit like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

According to trip advisor, this the best food in Skaneateles so we had to try it. We went in assuming prices would be ridiculous but were willing to pay the price for some delicious seafood. We were not disappointed. We were surprised that the bill was so low! I had a shrimp po boy and it was great. The shrimp skewers are delicious, the fish dinner is tender and tasty. Try the honey curry sauce with your fish, very tasty! We didn't love the seafood chowder but that was ok because everything else was perfect. And you must try the apple fritters. Fresh and delicious.

The line for the fish goes quickly in a very friendly atmosphere that is clean and child orientated with the large fish tank to gaze at.They don't skimp on the food nor the drinks! We love the shrimp sandwich too. The ice cream sundaes are the largest around town with a great price.
