The Original Pier French Fries

- Our world famous, fresh cut French fries are the staple of our menu. The potatoes that we use are premium locally grown here in New England and delivered to us straight from the farm. They are washed, peeled and cut daily right in our facility. Always 100% gluten free and cooked in high end soybean oil, you can order one of three sizes; a cup, pint, or box. We offer a number of different condiments here at Pier Fries. Ketchup, vinegar and salt are, of course, the most popular. However, hot nacho cheese, chili and gravy provide further options to our customers. For the "French Canadian" in you, it's hard to resist our ever popular Poutine (French fries topped with real cheddar cheese curds and hot beef gravy) that rounds out our French fry offerings.

About Us

About Pier French Fries
The Original Pier French Fries

In 1932, Old Orchard Beach was introduced to the French Fry.

And today...
The legend of Pier Fries still lives on.

Pier French Fries originated on the famous Pier in Old Orchard Beach. For 37 years this is where the family-owned business made its home. Then, in 1969, a horrific fire destroyed most of the structure, including Pier Fries. The business rebuilt and remained there for nine more years. Until once again, a tragic event occurred. This time the “Blizzard of 1978,” necessitated a move off the Pier for good. After being located in the downtown square for 24 more years, the business made its final move to the infamous Whitehall Building, where it resides today.

What has made this business so special, and a MUST for vacationers and locals alike is the same thing that makes it so special today. Using the highest quality potatoes…and the highest quality of oil (used to cook the product)…right down to the very best condiments and toppings (for the patrons to add to their order), very little has changed in the process that has created a recipe for success. Each potato is still hand cut every day. After all, who could turn down a fry with a perfectly crisp outer layer, coupled with a soft and moist interior that simply melts in your mouth. This…is a Pier French Fry.

So many relatives and locals have been employed there serving, just as it does today, three choices of fries; the cup, the pint or “the ever popular”, box.

One of the most popular comments made over the years by customers has been, "I ordered the cup and should have ordered the pint… because all I did was go back and buy another cup." It truly is something you cannot get enough of!

We invite you, during your visit to Old Orchard Beach, Maine, to come visit us at Pier French Fries. As the years have gone by, we have increased our menu to include such things as Poutine (French fries, cheese curds and hot beef gravy) hand-tossed fried dough and onion rings just to name a few. It is our hope that you will have a memorable experience with us and become a loyal fan of Pier Fries, just like the thousands who have visited us before you.
