The albacore fish are fresh and light. The "secret" batter is very tasty. The fries are perfect. I highly recommend this quick walk-up fish shack (although the lines can be a bit of a wait but well worth it!).

Nice light batter, flavorful fish, hand cut fries. A 8$ half order made for a perfect lunch. Fun vibe!

A cute place, worth visiting. I only had the fish. It was crunchy on the outside and light, not greasy. Fish was a little overcooked for my taste but still very good. Service so friendly even though they stay incredibly busy.

Bowpicker is definitely NOT a "restaurant" like it's categorized online, more like a food cart. The only seating is composed of two cheap picnic tables, and they're both outside with no cover. C'mon, this is the Oregon Coast!

My wife hates fish! But she still craves this. Line can get long so be prepared but definitely worth the wait

Don't share yours. If you are with someone else, each get your own plate! The tuna used in the fish and chips is juicy and the breading is crispy and delicious. Do yourself a favour and arrive a little bit before the noon rush. I...More

Who could imagine lining up on a sidewalk, stepping up to a beached fishing boat, and ordering fish and chips? Not just any fish and chips, though. This is the first time I've had tuna, and I loved it! Cod and haddock, farewell! Halibut, you...More

I've never eaten tuna fish and chips before, but this was delicious. The batter was light and kept the fish moist and warm. Each order came with five pieces of fish and a helping of french fries. Three adults and four children shared four full...More
