Probably the best fish and chips I’ve had. Never realized what a difference tuna fish and chips was from cod... amazing. Stood in line for about half an hour and would wait longer, they’re that good.

Parking isn't the easiest, and you may end up in a line, but it is definitely worth it. The food was excellent! At first I was a little concerned when I saw the size of the pieces of fish, but really it's very filling. I...More

Want fish and chips, come to this place and get some good ones. It’s sort of a food truck but it’s really a transformed boat. Come early so you don’t have to wait in line. The quantity was smaller than expected for the regular order...More

You have to line up outside on the sidewalk. This is a walk up and take out food restraint. Price is great. Portions are good. FOOD IS EXCELLENT.

Bring cash. Wait in line. Be ready for a mouth-watering taste of fresh halibut. This place is so good, people wait for the catch of the day year round in the cold and rain. You owe it to yourself to try the Bowpicker.

A food truck with a twist. The owners use an old fishing boat instead of a truck. Community eating with great food. Very enjoyable. Just 100yds from the Columbia River Maritime Museum . Well worth the walk.
