Bowpicker Fish & Chips

The Bowpicker Fish & Chips is a historic gillnet boat converted into a walk-up fish and chips joint. Serving only fish (beer battered Albacore tuna) and chips (golden steak fries), the mantra less is more completely applies here. Their menu is simple, whole order (five pieces, $10) and half (three pieces, $8). Sprinkle on a little malt vinegar, scoop up the homemade tartar sauce and enjoy. If you should go, be prepared to wait in line and have cash for payment, credit cards are not accepted. The Bowpicker is seasonal and open weather permitting, high winds being the worst offender. Normal hours are 11am-6pm, Wednesday through Sunday. Check the Bowpicker's Twitter feed for updates.
