REALLY? IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD THEM - YOU'VE NOT BEEN TO OOB!

A Maine Staple .... if you grew up in the OOB area & you have moved away --- come home - take a photo of your pier fries - - put it on Facebook and every childhood friends of yours will be jealous -- will make a comment - will get more likes - amazing --- put on the vinegar!

These fries and the little beach area compare well with Coney Island, NY and Nag's Head, NC. Walk-up to the outdoor counter. get these fabulous crinkle-cut fries piping hot, (portions are ample and reasonably priced) and eat and watch the people or the waves!

Do not miss these French fries! We made the mistake of ordering a box which was too much for the two of us. (We always do this.) The malt vinegar is an excellent accompaniment.

I didn't get the fries and I'm sure that's where I went wrong. I got chicken tenders and they were just decent, although my son enjoyed the hotdog he got. So I'd say just average.

The first night we spent in OOB we walked from our hotel down to the pier area. We decided to try pier French fries since it was kind of a staple on any visit here. What a waste, the fries were greasy and overpriced, the chicken tenders were all bread. They had way better fries across the way at Ricks... More

I love going to Pier Fries on a hot, sunny summer day! The fries are the best I have ever had. My husband and I always get one order of fries to share and two of their steamed hot dogs. Nothing beats lunch at Pier Fries sitting on a bench outside in the summertime!
