Food is always fried in fresh peanut oil making for a wonderful crispiness and fresh clean taste. Service is fast, too.

Awesome food, service, and a great atmosphere!!! Whether you're looking for fish or chicken tenders they're delicious. They hand batter them right there. Fresh cut french fries. You can't go wrong!

Always a great place to go, order at the counter, take our or bring it to your table. No tipping, no wait staff, great food. The menu has really expanded lately.

The fish is delicious. I don't deny that. And the fish chowder is hot and peppery. Yes. But lunch was $12. That's a lot for a fish sandwich. Speaking of which, I am not sure that a fried piece of fish on a hamburger bun counts as a fish sandwich. The fries, fried onion rings and fried clams are more... More

I don't care for fish or seafood, so I had a Hoffman foot long hot dog with onion rings and Cole slaw. It was out of this world delicious!

Everyone I know loves Doug's. Really good food for a good price. Just try to avoid them on Fridays, since lots of Christians will avoid eating meat on Fridays by going to Doug's which can mean a longer wait than normal

We think we have never had a bad meal at Doug's, and we have been going there ever since they came to Cortland. Last night my husband had the fish sandwich and a cup of seafood chowder, and I had a portion of shrimp and a cup of seafood chowder. All of it was delicious, and all of it was... More
