This is definitely worth the wait. You get a good amount of fish for the price too. Its a unique experience buying food out of a boat on a trailer!! Go if youre around. Lucky if you live here!

Bombed over right when we got to town. They had a line of about 20 people when we arrived. Waited for about 40 min. Met some great people from all over. Now to the fish and chips. They were awesome, after being to a few others and trying them. The Bow Picker is above the rest. Some are close but... More

One of the best places to get food in Astoria is out of this converted Gill-net Boat. The family catches their own Albacore Tuna and serves that exclusively. The chips are very good. I live in Astoria and it is a regular meal. Highly recommended!

Be ready to stand in line on a busy day--which it usually is. But the wait is worth it. The menu is short and sweet--fish, chips (fries) cooked to perfection on the spot, and a beverage of your choice. This is a to-go place, and there are a couple of communal picnic tables on the property. Very near the Maritime... More

Don't know anywhere else that has tuna fish & chips. We always take out of town guests to eat there. You order and then you can take anywhere you want to eat it. We like walking across the street to water front and sit on a bench.

The fish and chips here are unique, made with fresh tuna. And fish and chips is the only thing on the menu. And you will wait 30 to 40 minutes. But if fish and chips are your thing, trying this unusual place is a "must". Whenever we are in Astoria and find them open (you can follow them on Twitter... More

We showed up to Bowpicker Fish & Chips because I found it on TripAdvisor. When we arrived I wasn't sure what to expect. I mean, I didn't read anywhere there was not really a seating place and we had two cars full or kids!! It was 11 of us. Well, that didn't matter once we got the food. Best fish... More

We drove by the day before and saw a massive line, so we figured it had to be good. We talked to a couple locals and they said it was worth the wait. My husband I decided to give it a go, especially since line didn't seem to be too long in comparison to yesterday. We figured since the menu... More

I have family in Astoria, & my brother has always said that the Tuna Fish & Chips here are superb. The "restaurant" is in an old boat parked by the side of the road, and you walk up a set of wooden stairs beside the boat to order. The last two years in a row I visited, the lines were... More

Don't be discouraged it moves right along. A full order is 5 pieces of delicious white fish and chips for $11. It is finger lick in' good. A couple picnic tables or eat it in your car. I can't wait until we return.

Thank collye
