“Jersey Shore in Maine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

That's it, if you dare walk to the very end of the pier, you'll be assisting a Jersey Shore episode live. People are partying with their family, so the grandma and the daughter are dancing together while the uncles are getting liquored up with little flask shooter. Pretty funny to watch. The music is good and the view is breathtaking. I mean, you are literally partying on the sea!

“Needs an update already.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Last time I went to the pier was 15 years ago. I just visited again and it hasn't changed. They even play the same 80's rock that used to seem kind of cool 15 and 20 years ago. I'm not a smoker personally. People were smoking on the pier. The pier is outside but with the confined space, it's really not like outside. There should be an ordinance prohibiting smoking on the pier. The person smoking was a pier official. The beach is absolutely beautiful. It's a shame they can't seem to make Old Orchard a more upscale place than it is. Considering how long they've been trying to clean this place up, maybe it's just impossible to do.

“Not the pier I remember!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

When I was much younger, the pier was a place for the whole family. Now it just seems like row upon row of bars.

“Go back 50 years!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

OOB pier and amusement park is a slice of time gone by. My favorite is the old carousel ! It's hard to find one like this these days! It's fun to walk around for an afternoon. The rides open at 2pm. Then grab a slice of NY pizza at Rocco's .
