Always consistant! We stop here everytime we are in Astoria (a few times a year). Very limited menu - they only do fish (tuna) and chips but they're the best!

Well worth the short wait. Take the opportunity to make new friends in line while waiting for this fabulous fish. It was SO good......albacore firm, not fishy, perfectly fried, great crunch to outside. Yummy!!

The Bowpicker, besides being a unique takeaway location, has some wonderful white albacore tuna fish and chips. There may be a line and you are subject to the weather, but worth it. Just get there in time because, when they run out, they close!

Sometimes they are open and sometimes they are not. If you are lucky, they are open. Cash only, wait in line outside and hope it is not raining. Fish and chips was good. Not greasy and nice breading. Larger cut fries with good taste. Get...More

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.

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.
