Doug's does many sales to help benefit different groups. Workers are always pleasant whether it is at one of their locations or from their truck. Consistent great fried food. Lobster bisque is delicious

I've been here several times and I have to stop and get some additional dinners to go. Everything on their menu is second to none in my opinion, I just wish I was able to go through town more often.

We love Doug's. We usually get chicken, fish and one of the seafood soups and share as a family. Their onion rings are very good- best when ordered extra crispy. The milkshakes are made fresh- not from a machine, and are the absolute best.

Very good fried sea food with reasonable prices. Different specials each day. The place has character. If you visit Cortland, this is a must go place.
