Best French Fries, hands down. People come from a far just to eat them. A must visit if in Old Orchard Beach area. I usually buy the large portion as anything smaller just won't do. Fantastic.

Always great ! So glad they are in my hometown so I can enjoy whenever I want. Must have with salt and vinegar ( the original way).

The fries are hand cut and fresh. They are cooked right in front of you. The price is awesome and they taste delicious. I highly recommend getting your fries here well worth the trip.

After 55 years they are still great. Come back time after time (during season) and you are treated to the same taste and enjoyment. It is so wonderful to have places that continue to do what they do best for so long. Tradition rules

We stopped here most of the nights during my family's week stay in Old Orchard Beach. These Pier Fries were very delicious and there were so many for the price. My family loved these fries. So, if you looking for something quick to eat, you should definitely stop here. You do not want to miss this amazing place.

I had the crinkle-cut fries and they were tasty. This is a take-out joint and very unassuming. I wouldn't say the fries were anything special and could have been a little more fresh. There are so many people visiting that they are continually producing mass amounts of fries that sit together and lose some crispness. The price is very good... More

Dear Jim E,

We enjoy and appreciate the many comments and opinions from our thousands of annual customers. We are always looking To improve any aspect of our business from thoughts, both good and/or bad, from all of the patrons that visit us at Pier Fries every year. But you sir, have crossed the line. And because of this... On the rare instance this happens... I feel the need to respond to your post.

Your hurtful comment of our "greed"... And how we have somehow compromised our quality of our product to benefit our business is both flat out wrong as well as irresponsible on your part. We hand cut EVERY SINGLE potato that comes into our shop... And your suggestion that something has changed recently in our 80+ years of business is quite frankly... A joke. I am writing this to defend my family and the 20+ young men and women who work for us, that tirelessly work their tails off to provide,what we hope, is the BEST product that can be sold. To that point... I invite you to come to our facility... Cut a 150lb barrel of our "frozen fries" for yourself... And I in turn will be happy to pay for your finished box of Pier Fries, out of MY own "greedy" pocket. Any... Time... You ... Would...like. We apologize if the order you had was not up to par. We try, with every single order, to make them the best experience EVER. And if this was not the case... Please... Come see me or my wife... And we will be thrilled to make it right. But to suggest that our "GREED" is involved in your batch of Pier Fries...?????

We appreciate ALL suggestions and opinions about our business. And we hope to learn from each one of them. However, when you see fit to acuse me, my family and the ridiculously hard working young employees we have of being "greedy" and serving a product that is anything but the best potatoes, oil, salt, ketchup and anything else that makes us "Pier Fries" with no knowledge to the truth.... That is when I will respond with aggressiveness... To the great Place that we are. .......

Next time... Get your facts in order, before you decide to degrade a great Maine ICON... That we still are.
