Grilled salmon was a delicious way to cut back on a few calories. Everything I had was very good. Friendly and efficient staff.

If you are from the area, this is probably a traditional spot for you to dine, Doug's is a longstanding favorite in the area! My husband likes the fish dinner with extra bun. Some of us struggle deciding between that or the chicken with dipping sauce! I also like to get skewers of shrimp sometimes. I like the coleslaw, Fingerlakes... More

This is a place I must go to whenever I am here. Throw away your calorie count; it is about to be shattered by the most wonderful fish and chips (or fried shrimp) to be had!! An institution..

We were with friends riding our motorcycles, and they suggested Doug's fish fry. So we traveled another 20 miles east for lunch. We were not disappointed. There were many customers on a Tuesday noon hour, but the service was very efficient, and the fish fry was delicious, and plenty of it.

I like the steam clam, fry oysters, onion ring and the fish and chips but the ordering and food pick up process are very messy.

We stopped by for ice cream after dinner. They had a great selection of flavors. There was a long line waiting to be served but it is definitely worth the wait.

Food was great. There is a big fish tank and a train that runs on the ceiling and a huge mural of the lakefront on the wall. It was a neat place to go and kept my little occupied as there was a lot to look at. Definitely going when we are back in the area.

Thank chele010
