This is a great place to go for a casual meal with a group. There is a god variety on the menu so most everyone can find something they like. There is inside or deck seating which is usually quite popular and a longer wait. Nice view of the river and docks.

As I was travelling through the area, the tourist office recommended this restaurant. So, I went there on Thursday at 12h30 and I was told there was a 30 minute wait unless I can find a seat at the bar. I was served promptly at the bar had an excellent home made brew and a lobster sandwich served on a... More

We just sat up on the deck and had drinks. The beer was good, nothing over the top amazing. Service was good. It was a nice setting up on the deck.

A mainstay of Kennebunkport, a great place to eat for dinner or lunch! Federal Jacks has a a number of drink options from brews to wine with a bar inside the restaurant. A place for families with a large kid's menu while also an easy place for couples or friends to meet up for a casual meal. If going for... More

We stopped for lunch on a day trip to the area expecting a nice mix of food, drinks, and location. Outdoor dining was a plus with a good view of the harbor. Likewise, the beer selection was wide and featured a number of local offerings. My biggest reasons for rating this place as average were the really slow service (our... More

The best food by far.........soooooo good! This was a favorite place to eat and you have to make reservations and you also have parking right near so you didn't have to walk. It was near our hotel, Kings Port Inn, so we didn't have to walk far.

Was greeted by a lovely hostess and although busy managed to get us a seat on the high chairs. We had choice such as eating outside on the beautiful deck but would have to wait. Our table still had a nice view of the port. I enjoyed their delicious Haddock Tacos and my firend had the bowl of chowder and... More

We saw this place from across the water. The outside seating looked great. You need to climb a few flights of steps but the view is worth it. We enjoyed a glass of wine facing the water prior to dinner. They have comfortable couch seating as well. Outside dining had a long wait so we ate inside. The decor was... More
