makes it easy to order and worth waiting in line for. Tuna chunks perfectly breaded and deep fried to a great crunch. Fries also perfect. Great view of harbor, cute original "bow picker" boat made into the fry house. Highly recommend this place while in Astoria. Only 2 outside tables, so be prepared to go or eat in car.

Absolutely the BEST fish & chips ever. Nothing to look at but fantastic fish. Don't miss it if you are in Astoria.

Really good battered tuna and great steak fries! We had never had tuna as the base for this meal style and it turned out wonderful. The quality of the fish was also good. The line was already forming before 11 so get there early!

We arrived around 11:30 and spent 35 minutes getting our lunch, with about 20 orders in front of us. The line moves slowly alongside the old "bowpicker" fishing boat, so bring your patience - and your sunscreen! The fish is tuna and the narrow pieces are about 3 inches long ... this is not the halibut chunks most people are... More

This was a great experience. It was about a 20 min wait but well worth it. The Food was Very Good. They could use a few more tables to sit at though as there are only 2. Plan on sitting on the ground or standing as thats what we had to do along with many others.

Best fish and chips ever, with tuna. It' a clever and cute food boat on a trailer. Long line and basic menu, fish and chips. Well worth the long line.

We were looking forward to trying this quaint food stand as we had read several positive reviews. Indeed, the line was long and we were fortunate to get there before the line grew even longer - at lunch. There are not many options, so it pays to have a good idea what you want as puzzling over your decision can... More

We go here every year and wait in line for these amazing fish and chips! These are worth the wait and something we look forward to every year. Going back next month!
