This is the place to eat. Filled with local residents. Order at the counter and get a table. 12:30 on a Friday the line was getting long. We had a shrimp Po boy, fried fish sandwich and grilled fish with onion rings. Very fresh food...More

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.

Stopped for lunch. Shrimp po-boy was very good. Seafood chowder and Jambalya only average. Real malt milshake was the highlight of visit.

It is so hard to find good fried seafood outside of Massachusetts. Most of the time it's overcooked anyplace else we've had it. Not at Doug's. Felt like we were on Cape Cod. Super delicious. It's cafeteria style. You place your order and they call...More

This is an iconic joint that has been around for almost 30 plus years. There are stories all over the walls with info to learn about the success story for Doug. The food and drinks are good and the food by the way is fresh.

Grilled is best with just natural taste and Doug's has a delicious sauce they drizzle over that is probably gluten free? I had salmon grilled and my wife had shrimp the same way due to digestive issues as well.
