Almost seems silly to add yet another praising review. They're just excellent. Lots of awards. Simple menu, only one kind of fish. Do one thing and do it to perfection! Light breading on fresh albacore tuna. Daily lunch whenever I'm here.

My wife and I agree that we have never had fish n chips even close to this place. I wish I had some right now! Great bang for your buck, and make sure you bring cash. Lines move quickly.

We went on the recommendation of friends & family-Bowpicker did not disappoint! Fish was high quality, breading light. Not greasy! Will definitely return!

A hidden gem in the small town of Astoria. An easy walk up the wooden steps of the boat-turned-foodtruck is pretty unique. The fish was tender and crispy, along with the excellent fries. Would return again for a quick, cheap lunch.

We love the fish here. Fish is tuna and made to order. Be prepared to stand in line for up to 30 mins or more. Even in the rain there is a line. The chips are thick cut potatoes. The tarter sauce is yummy.

I enjoy getting fish and chips occasionally, and when I have time and cash i stop at the Bowpicker. I love their steakfries and their fish never disappoints. Standing in line, sometimes for an hour, is always fun. The people in line are engaging and...More

Lots if quirky places in Astoria. Go to the place by maritime museum, it is an actual boat on land. Serves albacore tuna fish n chips, long lines at times. Ship inn has great food too.
