Surprisingly good food for a brewpub

We spend a morning strolling around busy Kennebunkport and we were quickly starving. A local recommended this place for a tasty, quick lunch accompanied by a beer. It did not disappoint.

My partner said it the best beer he had in America, closest to a British pint! Fantastic views from the balcony,

We just stopped in for late night cocktails. The bar has a nice view over the marina with both table and lounge seating. Drinks were nicely made and decently priced. Everything was made of wood and the place seemed to glow...

We went to Federal Jacks instead of The Ramp on Cape Porpoise in Kennebunk which had a 1.5 hour wait. It had valet parking for some odd reason... We needed to validate our stub in the restaurant. The wait was 35 minutes although when we got inside there were more than a few empty tables... My hunch is they are... More

I went here with my in-laws for the first time today. We ordered the nachos for our appetizer. It was good, but the salsa was a little too juicy that when we got to the chips on the bottom, they were already soggy. For the entrée, I ordered the paella and was even more disappointed. The seafood would have tasted... More

If you are looking for good pub food with a selection of locally brewed beers this is the place for you. The food is very good. The service is attentive and the prices are moderate. The only negatives are: it is noisy and be prepared for to wait for a table especially if you want to eat outside. Good for... More

We've been going to Fed'l Jacks every summer for the past 5 years. It goes down in quality every year. We tried one more time this week. The wait was expected, so we planned to hang in the pool room. It was grungy and dirty with half empty drinks and appetizer dishes scattered around, even though it was early in... More

We were there for a wedding that weekend and the family went out to find a place to have lunch. There was a short wait, they were able to sit 10 of us without a problem. We all had something different, Chili was wonderful, chowder the same, burgers great, beer selection large. Waiter was very nice and patience with our... More
