Good seafood, and good chicken as well. I am from the South and this place reminds me of places back home. Very good food.

This was by far the BEST fish sandwich I have ever had. Cooked to perfection, not greasy at all and very light! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Very basic restaurant with wonderful food.

My wife and I come here a lot for lunch or early dinner. Pretty consistent good, fresh food. Really can not go wrong with the fish sandwich or fried shrimp. Price is reasonable. Don't be concerned with the long lines if they exist. They move people through quickly. Only downside is they do not give refills on soda / pop.... More

Went to Skaneatles on Labor Day weekend. The last time I ate at Dougs was when I was 18 and living in Auburn. I'm now 45. It's as great now as it was then. The food is great the service and atmosphere is just as good. Living in Florida now, you would think Dougs could not compare to Florida seafood.... More

The fish sandwich was ginormous and it was good. Everyone we ran into said go to Dougs so glad we did. Dessert was a peach pie sundae made with custard. So Good

We didn't have reservations to the other fancy places in Skaneateles so we settled on Doug's and we are so happy we did! The service is FAST and with a smile. The fish dinners were delicious. Doug's does a great business. We will be going back again and skipping the restaurants that require reservations!

Delicious fried fish, fried shrimp, french fries, grilled shrimp on skewers, lobster rolls, and milk shakes. Everything is worth standing in line to get. Service is quick and efficient. A stark but welcoming place to eat. The staff is friendly and the regular customers will encourage you to try their favorites. The ice cream Sunday's are also a reason to... More

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. I had a fish sandwich and lobster bisque soup. Both were ample portions. My piece of fish hung over the bun about 4" on each side! Served with their homemade tartar sauce, it was delicious and fried to perfection. The lobster bisque was different from what I'm used to but... More

We arrived ready for a picnic with a take-away. Doug's comes highly recommended. A block or so north of the lake, the place oozes welcome to guests. We placed our order, waited patiently in line as the staff cooked our fish and plated the food. We then walked over to the park on the shore of the lake and had... More
