Dine: Seafood

Love fresh seafood?  We've got a lot of options to fill you up deliciously!

Bowpicker Fish & Chips.  Astoria's classic stop for Fish and Chips.  This converted fishing boat can be found across Marine Drive from the Maritime Museum.  It can easily be found by the usually long (but fast moving) line of hungry diners who queue up for Albacore Fish and Chips, their only offering.  Very popular and understandably so.  Limited outside seating or grab an order and mosey over to the River Walk. Soft drinks and water only.  A must stop for an Astoria adventure.  Tip: Talk like a local and pronouce "Bow" like "Ow" and not like an archery "bow."  17th and Duane
