This was our first time to The Bowpicker and it definitely won't be the last! They use tuna filets and it makes for a delicious meal! We waited in line for an hour and a half, but it was soooooo worth the wait!

Loved the fish and chips and friendly chat from the great ladies working so hard to cook them up fresh for you. Get there early....they go fast and when they are out they're closed for the day. Plan on waiting a while ....super popular and cooked as you order.

I had never had free "tuna" fish and chips. They were truly worth it. Unfortunately, wait can be long, but well worth it

Heard this place was really good. It's quite a long wait and they don't accept credit or debit, only cash. However, the menu is simple, fish and chips and something to drink. Assorted spices/sauces you may add. The amount of fish and steak fries was just right. The fish pieces were nice and thick, fries were a nice crisp. Limited... More

My brother and I stood in line, as advertised by other reviewers, for 45 minutes. We chatted with fellow customers also waiting, from 3 states and 3 countries. Finally got our half orders of fish. Three small pieces of well-prepared deep fried tuna on a bed of very ordinary fries. Mass produced tarter sauce and ketchup on the side. Sodas... More

After leaving the Maritime Museum, our group of ten motorcyclists were hungry, but not ready for a full meal. Across the street from the museum is a landlocked wooden fishing boat, the Bowpicker Fish & Chips. I like fish & chips as it's usually fast & inexpensive. As far as taste goes, most are the same & it's unusual to... More

This is an amazing experience, standing in line for almost an hour for fish and chips The fish is tuna, the breading excellent, french fries crisp and lots of interesting people to talk to while waiting. I'd recommend the time and effort if you are in Astoria. Take pictures are your friends will not believe you.

This is some of the best fish and chips I ever had. No wonder they always have a line waiting to be served. But... it's well worth the wait.
