As brew pubs go, this is really a nice facility, with a lot of choices. Although we just stopped for drinks, the menu looked interesting and is pretty extensive. Other folks eating seemed to be enjoying their meals. We would return and would consider eating here, especially for lunch. If you like Shipyard beer, ale, etc. (and we do), you... More

We love coming to Federal Jacks while in Kennebunkport or surrounding areas. The beer is outstanding and so are the chicken wings! Blueberry bbq and jalapeño maple are fabulous. They definitely have a large menu with a little something for everyone. The deck has fabulous views of the water and is amazing on a summer night. I suppose this isn't... More

Service is excellent. Food is consistently good. Wide range on the menu and very reasonable. Family friendly. And the manager really knows the wines, for excellent prices.

This place has a good deck for outdoor seating in the summer time. There is nothing special about the food, but it is good. They have seasonal beers which are brewed at the brewery downstairs, but I did not find these to be good. Prices are reasonable.

We have been coming here since it opened in 1992, and while the ale, stout and views are excellent, the food has had its ups and downs, but for a period of years the food was also very good - until this new menu was introduced and we were introduced to it on June 22 - the food has become...bad...

Sadly disappointed in respect of the beer, as I understood that Cask Beer was on tap. They have one hand pump, which was the primary reason we went. It was not available. The alternatives were the now typical range of carbonated and in effect 'super cold' beers. The service was slow even for a beer! If you are looking for... More

Unplanned we had lunch at this restaurant. Parking is available on the property which was a real plus given Kennebunkport is a very small town. The food was quite good, but not over the top. The staff while friendly were not outstanding, however acceptable. Not inexpensive but worth the visit.
