We have taken countless trips to Bonita Springs; but for some reason we had never tried Doug's Seafood. Tucked away in a strip mall off of the mega-busy Bonita Beach Road, this place may be small but is always busy with frequent lines that spill out of the doors and onto the sidewalk outside. We tried the perfectly fried oysters and also a shrimp wrap and they were both bursting with fresh flavor. Even though they were busy on the day we visited, things moved pretty quickly and once the order was placed it came out quickly. Don't be scared away by the lines, as Doug's has a good system in place that can handle large numbers. You won't be disappointed. Worth the wait!

Oh yes, lobster roll!! Been there twice-first time I had calamari and fries-good.
The next time I had the lobster roll-extra butter with onion rings! Bingo!! Amazing!

I almost hate to give them a great rating because more people will go and I will have a harder time getting my favorite lobster rolls. But the word is out. We all love them.

Best fried shrimp I have ever had, period.

Light crispy breading, shrimp was plump, and bursting with flavor. Obviously really fresh shrimp. Good fries.

My wife had the shrimp salad, which was also good.

We bought crab cakes to make at home...very tasty but lacking in large chunks.
Also brought home sausage and shrimp gumbo...excellent!

While Doug’s has always been a favorite spot for seafood, our recent experience was not up to their normal standards. The food was delicious, but the order was charged incorrectly. Not a huge overcharge, but wrong nonetheless. Ordered baskets which include French fries or potato salad and was charged a $1 up charge for our potato salads. Pointed the error out when given our total, but the gentleman said the potato salad was extra. It is extra when subbing for chips, but not on baskets. Obvious communication breakdown.
Happy that they now offer non- fried seafood options.
*Posted on their door before entering the restaurant is their payment policy - credit cards have a fee assessed so have cash on hand to avoid this additional charge.
