The best fish and chips ever. Even my wife that doesn't like fish loved it. The line wasn't even that long.

A whole new concept for fast fish food. Served out of decomissioned gillnetter, line up for deep fried tuna and chips. Little om the rich side but full of flavor.
Take your bounty over to the picnic table and enjoy!!!
Above Columbia River and incredible location. Bring a heavy coat!!!

The meal costs, but the harassment is free! :) Great gals don't start frying until you place the order. Small line, took about 20 mins to get from the bottom of the stairs to having fresh food in my hands. Light, crispy batter with chunky, meaty flesh. Didn't feel ripped off! Humorous conversation while we waited between the cooks and the locals. Drinks avail in the cooler at the bottom of the stairs on your way down. Cash only!

Bowpicker's is an acutal fishing boat which was put on a trailer and hauled into town to use as a food cart. What a novel idea! They serve one thing only - fish and chips in half order or full. Sodas are from a cooler set off to the side. To say that they do fish and chips well would be an understatement. The fish is local, the batter light and ultra-crispy, the fries crisp and hot. The long lines attest to the quality of the product.

This was simply some of the best fish & chips I have ever had! It was like a little magic piece of heaven for your tummy! It was a little cool and wet so we took it back to our hotel since there is only outdoor seating but it was so good I would stand out in the rain and eat it if that was my only choice! Crunchy crispy delicate tasty fish. They do have limited hours based on the weather so watch for the open sign and jump in line when you can you will not be sorry. Only $10 for 5 pieces of yummy goodness and fries.
