Stopped during a cruise from Alaska, and walked to the Bowpicker for lunch. Arrived just before 11am and already 3 other couples in line. They open around 11ish per their sign LOL. By the time we got our order the line was 15 to 20 deep. Wife and I shared a full order and was enough for us for lunch.... More

Driving to our hotel in Astoria in the late afternoon we noticed a long line of people. The hotel clerk told us it was a line for fish and chips at Bowpicker. Late lunch - early dinner - we were in. Only a few filled picnic tables so following a 25 minute wait in line, we ate in the car... More

The fish and chips were excellent!. Bowpickers is not always open due to weather esp. wind so this was the first time it was open, for me, while in Astoria. Although I had just eaten lunch in Seaside, I decided to try an order of the famous fish& chips and it was certainly worth every bite! The fish was deep... More

Excellant food. Very well balanced, and the fries were crispy and fresh. Fish crispy and not greasy.

We were traveling thru Astoria on our way to the coast. When we arrived in Warrenton we checked the internet for best place to eat fish. The Bowpicker came up as number 1. It came up number 1 for good reason. Anyway we drove back to Astoria and found the Bowpicker on the main drag with a line of customers... More

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! The best fried tuna fish & chips. Last time we were in Astoria were got there too late, so this time we got there a half hour after opening. We love it and our friends loved it. My wife and I split a full order, but I should have got a full order just for me. By... More

Had heard about the Bowpicker and decided to give it a try. Off the main road but when I saw the line on the sidewalk realized this was it. The wait was about thirty minutes but worth every second. The food was hot and delicious. Kind of a funky setup with a boat off the sidewalk but the long line... More

Delicious fish and chips. SImple menu, you can get a full order ($10) or a half order($8), side of fries , can of pop. That's it, cash only. The fish and chips are guaranteed to be hot as it is dished up directly from the fryer as you wait in line. We had a 40 minute wait in the middle... More

Was this the best fish and and chips I`ve ever had? No, but I guarantee you that it was close! On a bicycle trip, I had stopped in Astoria for the night. I was walking to the laundry when I saw a long line by a funny looking little boat. It said "Fish and Chips" and I hadn`t had any... More

Next time we're back in Astoria, we'll do AGAIN! Read about it on here, and we were impressed. CASH ONLY, STAND IN LINE (it's popular with the locals) and they are made to order :-)
