This is a popular restaurant with a fantastic view of the harbor. The sandwiches and dinners are excellant. Don't forget to try some great craft brews. We return to this place on each trip to the Kennebunk area and of couse recommend this to other family and friends. If I lived near I would definetly join the beer club and... More

If you are looking for more than a typical bar scene I would not recommend this place. The menu has the basic wings, burgers, etc. and being from Boston the Brewpub (selection of beers) was kind of a joke. It most likely turns into a pick up joint in the later hours.

Love the atmosphere here, and the food & drinks are great too. We've had dinner here many times and the food has always been quite tasty. The Sunday brunch is a great deal with lots of options as well. We've had a few birthday get-togethers here over the years and the staff has been great! Can't go wrong with this... More

Great food and atmosphere! We visited this past summer, though I have traveled to this area for over 20 years I hadn't eaten here before. Glad that we stopped, I will visit here again.

This happened a few years ago and we haven't been back since. Things may have changed since that visit and maybe the reader feels that I am being unfair reporting this incident at such a late date. That being said we are locals and have many choices of eating establishments in the area and have no need eat at an... More

We dined here on a Saturday evening. After a very short wait, we were shown to a booth. We have dined here many times in both the winter and summer. This was the start of Restaurant Week so that may explain the crowds of several area restaurants. Federal Jack's had a wonderful selection for their restaurant week. For $25 one... More

Visited on a Saturday night, server was pleasant and attentive, but kitchen was verrrry slow. Food portion was disappointing, 1 skewer of steak tips, 3 tablespoonfuls of risotto, 1/2 of a grilled tomato and some asparagus 19.00 - quite frankly with the choices you have for restaurants in the Kennebunks- you can do much better! Crowded, noisy and expect a... More

The portions are very small, the food took forever to get. The beer was good. I wouldn't waste my time or money ever going back to this place.

Visited for a late Friday night dinner. No waiting and were seated immediately. Quaint setting upstairs overlooking the water right off of famed dock square. We tried the fish and chips which was excellent and I am a picky eater. My wife had the Strawberry & Goat Cheese salad which was also very good. Did a 3 pour sampler if... More
