Very friendly service but there was an odd taste to the batter. French fries were above average. The wait was about 20 minutes.

We were lucky to be in Astoria on one of the days Bowpickers was open. Yes, there was a line as always, but it went quickly while we visited with other tourists around us. This was our first time for fried tuna and it was the best fish and chips we'd ever had. Two of us split the large order... More

Great tuna and chips. Worth the wait in the lineup! 2 full orders were plenty for 3 of us, 2 adults and one 12 yr old. Great price too, very reasonable.

Excellent!!! Always great. My favorite place for fish (tuna) & chips. The only thing on the menu is tuna and fries, either a large order which is five pieces of fish for $11 or a small order which is three pieces for $8. Always fresh - never greasy. Expect a long line to order but well worth the wait.

Great fish and chips. The line looked imposing but actually moved well. We stood at the tailgate of our truck to eat. We were in town for fishing,and this looked kind of "touristy" but was really fun

The line is long, but this place is tasty! If u are in Astoria and don't mind waiting, go here if you like fish and chips. You won't regret it.

Bowpicker has the best Fish & Chips that I have ever had. We was taken when we passed by last year and saw a long line out side this boat docked off the road, We decided to check it was and boy were we glad. The fish is a fresh tuna in a light non-greasy batter thats light and crispy.... More

Large pieces of fresh caught Albacore tuna and a light beer batter makes these fish and chips outstanding! While there are only a couple of tables outside, we took our food across the street and ate near the Maritime Museum. Some words of advice: They only take cash and get there when they open at 11 to avoid the line.

Thank mvrabit
