Never understood the big deal about the fries.

It is almost a ritual, visit OC and eat Thrasher's. First of all, grossly overpriced. Second, the fries are passable if you only a few and while they are hot. If you let them get cold, the taste is horrible, only good enough for the sea gulls, save your money and don't eat at the boardwalk... read more

If your at Ocean City this is a most stop, one of the wonders of the world right there with the pyramids. Best fries anywhere. Don't even mess with a small size order, minimum size should be medium .. . and large will last a while. You can tell the rookies when they ask for ketchup .. . . don't... More

My family and myself have been eating thrashers for years. I have not have one bad experience with them. The fries are always cooked fresh and although they are pricey you get what you pay for. Excellent food !

Fries are hot and fresh which makes them far better than average. Add a little vinegar and a bit of Old Bay to bring out the full flavor. These fries are very good but my goodness...how much can you do with a French fry? The reason that Thrasher's fries are so good is they are served nice and hot rather... More

An old time favorite for many years on the boardwalk. Hot and fresh french fries that can be accented with salt or old bay. Drizzle a little vinegar on the fries and you have a little bit of paradise

If you've never had them, just do it. Yes, they really are potato perfection. Yes, they really are different. Do it with the malt vinegar. Don't ask for ketchup. Look, I love ketchup, but this ain't the place! And if you're ever in the area at wintertime.... OH MY GAH. We have had Thrashers hundreds of times. We were at... More
