The reviews are all right on.

We split a full order for $10 and were sufficiently full. We got there at 11am on Thursday and only had to wait about 30 minutes. The meal was great and the other patrons were friendly. They only serve fish and chips, but they do it well. Would definitely do it again.

We drove 10 hours with this as our first stop and we were OK with the long line...at first. After 45 minutes with lots of fun banter with others in line we realized the line was not moving. The man in the red shirt was still on the platform. My husband goes to the front to see what's up...well apparently... More

Drove to Astoria just for these fish and chips. Well worth the long drive. I think the best fish and chips I have had. Can't wait to go back next time I get to oregon.

So, I get on Trip Advisor and look at the restaurants as we are walking around in Astoria (which is awsome by the way), and the first one up is Bowpicker. According to GPS, I'm there? Where is there? I look up and there is a boat with a long line of people standing out front. We were schooled by... More

You can not visit Astoria and not go here! Yes, the wait is sometimes super long. We waited in line for about an hour. But, we made friends with the people in line behind us, and that was so much fun! Full or half order, their fish is done quickly once ordered, and not greasy like other fried options. I... More

While at the Oregon Coast we wanted some fish and chips and when I found Bowpicker on Tripadvisor we went! It doesn't disappoint. A few things to note, it is just a walk up window (well a walk up bow of a ship), so take your dog. We left ours at the campsite thinking it was a restaurant, but with... More

Perfectly fried white albacore tuna (who knew?), with fat crispy French friend potatoes. What could be better? A shorter wait perhaps. About an hour for us. I would wait that long once, but maybe not twice. They might need a second fryer. A terrific dish, but much too long a wait. And they need a few more picnic tables. Eat... More

The downside: We had to wait outside in the Astoria elements for at least an hour. The upside: It was worth every second of it!! The staff was SUPER awesome. They talked with everyone that came up to the first window where the kitchen is and they explained to everyone that it takes a while for orders as they change... More
