this is great food at a good price. The service is great and prompt. We always go to Federal Jacks when we are in Kennebunk.

although it was winter in my last visit I have been here in the summer and the review would be about the same. Food is run of the mill average (pleasant and efficient service, though). But the beer is really good here and in the summer the view cannot be beat. If you can't get a view seat and don't... More

Great microbrew and a good place to hang out and play pool. Especially on tuesdays when its free! This place attracts a lot of tourists and locals alike. It can be difficult to get served if you aren't in the dining room at an actual table.

My wife ordered a crab salad sandwich that was supposed to be cool creamy crabmeat with mayo on toasted bread. The crab came out lukewarm, without much flavor and did not have a crab flavor. I order fresh homemade chips but what I received were cold, previously fried chips that were hard and lacked in flavor and seasoning.

We've eaten here many times. Great place for a family - there was a pool table to entertain the kids while we waited for our food. Family-friendly atmosphere and food. Nice bar also.

We stopped in on a Sunday evening in November, when the traffic was pretty slow. The hostess was doing double duty as wait staff and was very pleasant and accommodating. The in house beers were good, and the salad we had was okay. Nothing special but it was just what we wanted for an early dinner after having had a... More

My wife and I ordered a few appetizers, and some drinks. I got the full beer sampler, and let me tell you it was huge. 11 beer samples. Needless to say I was feeling it afterwards. A real highlight of the meal was the blueberry bbq dipping sauce for the chicken tenders. It was very tasty. Federal Jacks definitely gets... More

If you like locally brewed beer and a pub with good food and a pleasant atmosphere this is the place for you. There can often be a short wait to be seated but it is worth the wait.

Food was good and beers were cold! Staff was knowledgeable and helpful as well. Would like to come dine in the summer months to enjoy the deck!

A nice inviting second story restaurant located in the heart of Kennebunks. Kennebunkport is only steps away. Parking can be a problem especially when the town is busy. The restaurant does offer validated parking near the premises if space is available. Expensive public parking is available at several locations a short distance away. The restaurant is on the second level... More
