We never heard of that place, until a friend from California told us it’s a must-have-experience when in Astoria. It’s not a restaurant, but a small converted boat across Hwy 20 from the Maritime Museum, selling ONLY beer-battered fish’n chips at a walk-up window –...More

We were looking for lunch for our first afternoon in Astoria and found Bowpicker. The line was down the sidewalk at 3pm. Each time we passed Bowpicker during our stay, there was an even LONGER line. Yummy fish and chips. Cash only!

FRESH fish with delicate crisp coating together with steak cut fries served hot from the fryer. You must wait in line and there is no seating, but it is worth these annoyances. Cash only

Fish & chips are so good the the line forms at 10:30 ish for an 11:00 AM start. Each order of fish is prepared after you order. Conversations in the line are fun. "Local Landmark".

The lines are long but this is worth the wait! Best fish (tuna) & chips we've ever had! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and NOT greesy! The only thing they need is more tables for seating; they have one picnic table by...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.
