The place was very busy, but it very smooth running. I thought It would take forever, but it went very quick. The fish and fries were great and the price was good for what we got The sundaes were amazing.

Always a great meal, a real fish sandwich the fries can sometimes be not crisp enough. Plenty of seating, easy access to the condiments. They also have ice cream for those with room for dessert.

Doug's is a popular destination and has tasty soups and sandwiches. Since we were there for lunch, I didn't peruse dinner options. The fish sandwich was a good-sized filet on a bun. A side order of French fries was shared. Doug's offers a break from the fast food chains and should be considered for a good quality meal at reasonable... More

There is not much to Doug's Fish Fry. Blink, and you could miss it. But miss something wonderful indeed. We came for the fish sandwiches (to go) and left with heaping plates of hot, fried fish on white rolls and one order of onion rings which were enough for an entire family--piping hot, crunchy and great. There is bisque and... More

We had the fish sandwich dinner which comes with fresh cut fries and cold slaw. The sandwich is really a huge piece of fish and a bun but it's really to big to eat as a sandwich but the taste is excellent and the fries perfect. Just wish the lobster bisque was available on Fridays.

I've been going to Doug's Fish Fry for many years. Very friendly staff, fresh food, and quick service. No frills, just good honest food. Highly recommend the seafood chowder!

Dough Fish Fry is a wonderful place to eat or order and takeout. Their new special is salmon and it is grilled to perfection. It practically melts in your mouth. Match it up with their own coleslaw and fresh cut fries and you've got a meal to die for. If that's not enough, the staff are super friendly, and the... More

Fast food style service but menu boards are very confusing, listing many items that are only available on certain days. Simple fish and chips is not even on the list but is available. The French fires were soggy but the fish was o.k.in a nice batter. The restaurant has no wine or beer. No salads or other "healthy" sides are... More

Excellent for what it offers. The fry is not overwhelming, the fish is flavorful and the menu, although not expansive, is adequate. Alcohol is sold, as is ice cream.
