Out of all the times we have been to Skaneateles, we have never stopped at Doug's. And, we know it is a must. Well, I think the thing to order is fried fish. We both ordered the lobster roll and it was very disappointing, It was odd, with some kind of herb, warm and kind of mushy. We are real "Maine" lobster roll people, and this just didn't do it. They were $18 a piece and definitely not worth it. Why order lobster in the finger lakes? Maybe we will be back and we will get the fried fish like everyone else walking by.

A visit to Skaneateles Lake isn’t complete without a stop at Doug’s Fish Fry. It had been years since I was here, but the menu was still the same! Their Fried Fish Sandwich is so big, crunchy and delicious. They really pack people into Doug’s so nice they have lots of picnic tables outside.

The sign says "Good Food". I think it should read Great food. The lobster roll was excellent. Lots of lobster on a large roll. The fish dinner was great as always. Onion rings superbly done and cole slaw so good I want the recipe. Milk shakes are to die for. Real milk, real icecream and real malt. When my wife suggested we go to Doug's for dinner I said YEA.

Enjoyed this restaurant! Great seafood and friendly staff. Had fried shrimp and the shrimp 'po boy. Enjoyed it and the cole slaw was great too! Prices were very reasonable.

The fish sandwich was big and tasty. No skimping here. The service was fast and organized. The seafood chowder was just so-so, but the sandwich was a real winner. Will probably go back for another sandwich but will try the onion rings, they looked crisp and golden.
