One of the town folks recommended Doug's Fish Fry for lunch. It was quick, it was tasty and it had a pleasant, fun atmosphere. It's one of those local spots that fit the flavor of the town and become part of the overall experience.

Good fish sandwiches at reasonable prices plus chicken, etc. Not fancy. Just good good food. Fall apple fritters are a local favorite.

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.
