We were looking for lunch options in Astoria, OR and my wife found the Bowpicker. It's located on a hill, parking is sparse and I hear the lines can be quite long but we were lucky and came when the line was short (20 min). A full order of fish and chips basket was $11 and you get a side of tarter sauce and catsup. There must be some magic in that fried goodness because it was nice and crisp and not oily like you might think. Even the fries came out crispy. I'll definitely be going back in the future!

Thank you for a great lunch Bowpicker gals!

My husband liked the light breading that was not greasy. It was tuna, so be aware of that. Fries were big steak fries kind that were pretty good too. The wait wasn't too bad and the line moved quickly.

We were in Astoria in January 2017 and tried to eat here. Unlike New England where shacks close for the season, this place is hit and miss because they only open when they want to. We missed in January but had the honor of standing in line for an hour, yes 60 minutes, to try it this time. The fish is excellent and obviously great quality. Tuna is lightly coated and fried to perfection. The fries are average, and in total waiting for an hour to get served was a bummer. For us its a been there-done that and we'll spend our time on vacation doing something other than standing in line in the future.

We were riding the trolley and just happened to see this gem! Stopped by and here was no line (apparently that's like winning the lottery based off other reviews) but after eating this deliciousness, the line is worth it if there is one! This is the real deal. Fresh. Local. Nothing better. We traveled the whole 101 coast and had fish and chips every day and this place blew the others out of the water. Helpful hint, cash only!!!

Make sure your trip to Astoria includes this unique place. Be advised the wait can be lengthy and not too much variety to select from but its worth the wait.
