Not a place to take the kids, or family. Wow has this place gone down hill! I remember going to OOB back when I was in high school and college and I do not recall ever seeing drunks on the streets at NOON, or girls "working" the streets. We parked at a metered space and was told by a scareey... More

Went, did it, 15 minutes of looking....ok now what? For me....IMO... I'd rather save my money and travel during the winters. The whole Old Orchard thing was just a big dirty money pit.

It's no big whoop, but it is an Old Orchard Beach landmark. It might be worth 15-30 minutes of your time to take a stroll and see some local color. There are kiosks selling the typical tacky tourist stuff: sunglasses, t-shirts, henna tattoos, etc. There are a couple of restaurants/bars if you want to just reflect sitting out over the... More

Even during the summer there is not alot to see on the pier. Alot of bars, mostly for the drinkers. There are a few places to get overpriced food with alot of grease. It really is not for the smaller kids because there is nothing for them to do. I like to sit near a window in one of the... More

I am originally from New Jersey which has legendary beaches and boardwalks. I moved to Maryland which has Ocean City. I was extremely disappointed with old orchard beach. I would never put that in the same class as the Maryland or New Jersey Boardwalks.

We had a wonderful time, great beer offerings and delicious nachos at Hooligans. We look forward to returning during the high season for a bigger taste of OOB.

Excellent fried clam strips and caesar salads. Not fine dining but certainly in keeping with the seaside location. Service was friendly but surroundings were cold and many patrons were coming in and out of the patio smoking area, which made the interior seem like the smoking section.

So sorry to see the Pier at Old Orchard Beach in such need of a facelift. Having spent most of my summer vacations at OOB since I was a child, it is disheartening to see it now looks and compare it to what it once was back in the day. A shame they allowed shops to block the view of... More
