Had a nice lunch at Doug's - shared a fried shrimp plate and tried their gumbo. Shrimp was nice and fresh - crunchy and yummy! My husband had the gumbo, which was piping hot and delicious!

My dad took me to Doug's for lunch before I returned home to the UK (where fish and chips is a national dish). I had the fish dinner - delicious fish on a bun with plentiful fries. I loved the family atmosphere and the mural of a Skaneateles dinner. Unfortunately I was too full for dessert.

I've lived in upstate ny my whole life and dougs fish fry is a time honored tradition! They get fresh haddock 5 days a week from Boston, batter it themselves and you can tell! Also a slightly less known but yummy healthier choice is their grilled salmon and grilled shrimp! And who can forget the fresh home cut fries? Yum!

i like to go to this place because you are not expecting much from their food, just getting for what you pay and the price is pretty good. it's cheap and probably the best value meal in skaneateles for this price .

One of our must-do events during our summer trip to NY, is to visit Dougs. The kids love the train and the decor, and we all love the food! The coleslaw is a favorite with the kids, and a fish platter is to die for! Yum!
