“nothing like a walk on the pier”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

a number of quaint places to have a brew, listen to music and watch the ocean. If you're on the pier as I was on the 4th of July, you'll be presented with a fantastic fireworks display. A little small if you're use to west coast piers but a treat to visit and talk with other.

“Quite a view”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

When you walk out onto the pier the first thing you smell is the ocean and second is the "pier fries". You must stop for pier fries as that's what OOB is all about! If you are over the age of 18, then proceed through the gate and walk around the pier patio bars. The view is stunning, where the ocean meets the sky... There is plenty to see there and plenty to enjoy..P.S. Bring your camera!!

“All talk...No show.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

The reviews on the Pier made it sound like this was the place to go for nightlife and entertainment. I did not find it entertaining. The nightlife was poor. Perhaps we came at a bad time of year, but it wasn't that fun. Would I return, probably not.

“Fun”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Fun place to visit. Lots to do! Even going down underneath at beach level is an interesting visit for the kids.

“Requires several visits”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

you just don't go to OOB once.. you go several times to experience all there is to offer. Bills Pizza and Pier Fries are the big draw for me. Now, is the pizza superior to other venders? Probably not, but add the Atlantic Ocean and the calopie music coming from the merry-go-round and then, you have the total experience that is Old Orchard Beach. 7 miles of gorgeous white sand beach to enjoy if that's your thing and from the size of the crowds in the summer, it is for a lot of people, the place they want to be... I don't blame them.. Oh, and don't forget to try the deep fried oreo cookies..
