Stopped in for lunch after reading the reviews. Warning- the portions are huge so bring your appetite! Loved the signs they have on the wall. The fish was lightly battered and fried perfectly. Husband had the scallops which were also very good. What impressed me was how often they get the their deliveries of fresh fish- they don’t use frozen . Fries are made from fresh potatoes. Want to try their shrimp po’ boy and fried clams next visit.

We had been here many years ago on our first visit to Skanaetles and enjoyed it very much. We found the breaded fish here still very good this time around. It s light and not greasy at all.The portions are generous and staff friendly and very efficient. The atmosphere is comfortable and fun.
The frenchfries were a disappointment though...they were tasteless, dry and hard. We decided to have lunch there again and found that having the fish just with the sesame bun was good enough.

This is the place to eat. Filled with local residents. Order at the counter and get a table. 12:30 on a Friday the line was getting long. We had a shrimp Po boy, fried fish sandwich and grilled fish with onion rings. Very fresh food and cooked to order.

We were in the area touring and ended up with car troubles. We decided to pass time walking the town and ALL the locals said if were in town for lunch we have to go to Doug’s. My favorite was the gumbo. Nice to find some okra this far north. And the shrimp skewers were delicious. Limited but nice selection of beers on tap. Would gladly go back.

Overly hyped cafeteria, but with good fried fish. Best thing about it: Order a glass of wine and it comes in a good sized plastic cup filled to the brim. The sides are pretty mediocre. Go for the experience but don't expect great food.
