Doug’s serves “some of the best fish in Upstate” according to a recent review, but I wasn’t impressed. Have had equally good fish fries at lower prices in both the Rochester and 1000 Islands areas. Visited the pretty little lakeside town of Skaneateles for the...More

Out of all the times we have been to Skaneateles, we have never stopped at Doug's. And, we know it is a must. Well, I think the thing to order is fried fish. We both ordered the lobster roll and it was very disappointing, It...More

A visit to Skaneateles Lake isn’t complete without a stop at Doug’s Fish Fry. It had been years since I was here, but the menu was still the same! Their Fried Fish Sandwich is so big, crunchy and delicious. They really pack people into Doug’s...More

I had eaten here several months ago. I had the fried fish and I enjoyed it, and my husband had the salmon. It was excellent. They do not always have the salmon on the menu but, fortunately they did have the day we were there....More

Best seafood around. Grilled or fried. Can't get any fresher. Always consistent!!! We go at least twice a month. Thank goodness they are open all year round.

While Doug’s is known for its fried fish, it probably has one of the best lobster rolls ever. While most lobster rolls use a mayonnaise sauce with diced vegetable, the Doug roll is pure lobster meat in seasoned butter on a toasted roll. Just delicious....More

The fish fry is the king here. It’s non greasy and delicious. The fries on the other hand were disgusting to look at and to eat. They looked shriveled and tasted bitter. Mural on the wall adds for a cute touch. We checked this one...More

No, the lake's across the street. No view except for your fellow diners and a train set that goes around on the ceiling.

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.
