We were having a family weekend. A group of 7 family members stopped in here as we haven't been in some years.
6 of the 7 ordered drinks.
One ordered a glass of white zin, which they were out of.
She settled on an actual drink.

We glanced over the menu and someone mentioned that one particular app looked good.
A different waitress brought our drinks* and then scurried off so quick it was like she was on fire.
* I use the word "drink" loosely. What we got were cups slightly bigger than paper cups FULL of ice and about 5 sips of drink.

Our waitress never bothered to come back to see if we wanted anything else, so we never got to order any appetizers.
The bill came, and was $75

Wow. We paid and left.

Get back to our hotel, and we didn't pay close enough attention to the bill apparently.
They still charged us for the white zin that we never got and already tagged tip on.
Since it was never mentioned, and also there was one of those tip calculators on the bottom of the receipt, the person paying didn't notice.

Shame on us, we over payed for drinks...payed for drinks we never got...and double tipped one of the laziest waitresses ever.
That will be the last time we ever spend money in there ever again.

The door man was great and very kid friendly, letting them pick a stamp and picking a lobster to pet so we went in. Atmosphere was good, the views were amazing since your right on the end of the pier, it was really neat. Food is a bit pricey though and you want to go earlier in the evening because its too rowdy for children and probably most adults. Staff was great though.

We have eaten here a couple of times in the past few years and found it ok but nothing great. Apparently 2013 is their year because we found a huge improvement overall. We were greeted in a warm manner...found seats exactly where we wanted to be...server appeared promptly and was a sweetheart. We started with the lobster stew and it was FABULOUS...chock full of lobster chunks served hot in a rich bisque like base. We ordered a seafood combo and it also arrived quickly and piping hot. Our drinks were refilled quickly and all of our needs were met promptly and with a smile. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. It was an all around great meal. We will definitely be returning and will recommend this restaurant to our friends.

i visited old orchard beach expecting to eat the usual pizza and french fries but gave the pier a shot. i can tell you that i am glad that i did! although the food was pub fare it was well executed and came out in a timely fashion, especially considering it was very busy. my waitress was attentive and noticed that i had finished my beer before the food came and was quick with a new one. when the food came out (i got the scallops) they were damn near perfect. i hate when theyre overcooked and maybe its practice makes perfect from the sheer volume they must do, but they tasted fresh and were perfectly cooked. i will definitely be back to down a few beers, have some good pub food and look out over the ocean
