These are fresh french fries cooked to order. Big line - could tell that they are popular! Get them with salt and vinegar.

After seeing this business in The Chronicle, I decided to give it a try. My only regret was that I didn't get to try their gravy with the fries.

Best fries by far from any beach we go to. Sometimes we get the cheese and sometimes the gravy. Other times maybe just vinegar and ketchup.

I have to say that I normally drool over the thought of getting a thing of Pier Fries. But I have gotten them 2 times this summer and they seem different to me. I am not sure if they are not hand cut anymore, but they just tasted greasier than normal and had a different taste to them. I mean... More

Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Dear Jim E,

We enjoy and appreciate the many comments and opinions from our thousands of annual customers. We are always looking To improve any aspect of our business from thoughts, both good and/or bad, from all of the patrons that visit us at Pier Fries every year. But you sir, have crossed the line. And because of this... On the rare instance this happens... I feel the need to respond to your post.

Your hurtful comment of our "greed"... And how we have somehow compromised our quality of our product to benefit our business is both flat out wrong as well as irresponsible on your part. We hand cut EVERY SINGLE potato that comes into our shop... And your suggestion that something has changed recently in our 80+ years of business is quite frankly... A joke. I am writing this to defend my family and the 20+ young men and women who work for us, that tirelessly work their tails off to provide,what we hope, is the BEST product that can be sold. To that point... I invite you to come to our facility... Cut a 150lb barrel of our "frozen fries" for yourself... And I in turn will be happy to pay for your finished box of Pier Fries, out of MY own "greedy" pocket. Any... Time... You ... Would...like. We apologize if the order you had was not up to par. We try, with every single order, to make them the best experience EVER. And if this was not the case... Please... Come see me or my wife... And we will be thrilled to make it right. But to suggest that our "GREED" is involved in your batch of Pier Fries...?????

We appreciate ALL suggestions and opinions about our business. And we hope to learn from each one of them. However, when you see fit to acuse me, my family and the ridiculously hard working young employees we have of being "greedy" and serving a product that is anything but the best potatoes, oil, salt, ketchup and anything else that makes us "Pier Fries" with no knowledge to the truth.... That is when I will respond with aggressiveness... To the great Place that we are. .......

Next time... Get your facts in order, before you decide to degrade a great Maine ICON... That we still are.
