Doug's Fish Fry, despite Doug apparently having retired, remains a fantastic Skaneateles standout for a fish fry - great haddock, hot fries and onion rings, and first rate tarter sauce and other condiments. We have been going to Doug's for almost 35 years or so,...More

We heard about Doug's while tasting wine in Aurora and we were not disappointed! Very casual with counter service and a cute electric train that traveled around the ceiling of the restaurant. We ordered fried shrimp, fried fish, French fries and chowder. Every bite was...More

I have eaten at Doug’s in Skaneateles many times since they opened in 1982. I have also patronized many of the “Togo” benefits for the various causes throughout the central NY area. Yesterday I purchased 2 scallop dinners from the “Togo “ wagon in Aurora....More

Everyone who passes through the charming town of Skaneateles eats here eventually, and you will, too. Paper plates on picnic tables. Menu board over the counter. We enjoyed the chowder, fried fish and onion rings. Prices are a throwback to the 80's. Just be sure...More

Always a welcome stop when in Skanneatlis. Seafood is consistenty fresh, raw cut french fries are to die for. Or you can choose the freshly prepared sweet onion rings for $1 more. Nice, freshly made coke slaw has a complex mixture of cabbages as well...More

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.
