Not a bad place not just over the top. Everyone talks about it and it is good but maybe I expected more from the way everyone speaks about it. My wife and I had the lobster roll and ordered it with out the mayonnaise and butter on the side. It came with the butter on it already and nothing on... More

Considering we are huge fans of Shipyard beer from Philadelphia, there's no place better than where it all began, Federal Jack's. The location is great, in the center of town, and within walking distance of many of the hotels and B&Bs.

We visited the area over the weekend. Coming off a boat tour and hungry for lunch, we we walked to this close establishment. We were seated right away and then the service went South... Our food from order to arrival took almost an hour. When it arrived, it tasted great. Our waitress was slow, not sure if she had too... More

Ill start off by saying we love Shipyard beer so a visit to Federal Jacks seemed fitting. Parking is extremely tough during the weekend. This was our second try as we were unable to get a spot the first time we tried visiting. We got there at five and got one of the last few spots. Got seated right away,... More

We had our evening meal here. I like the real ales but got one on recommend from the waitress. I have to say I didn't enjoy it, but it didn't appear on my bill. Had a nice table over lokking the harbour which was very pleasant. The food was very nice and staff not pushy was made the stay even... More

Decided to walk round town before eating. The place was heaving when we got back but we were seated quickly, perhaps a bit slow to then get to us but that I can understand they were so busy at that point. Food was very good when it arrived and wouldn't hesitate t go back if we were to be in... More

A very busy place but with free parking that is at a premium in this town. The wait was projected to be over an hour, so we settled in at the bar on the right. Turned out we could eat there and had a very nice, but predictable meal well before we could have even gotten in with our sign... More

We went for dinner. Reservations are not required and we got a table straight away. There is a good choice of food and they did not mine me asking for things like no cheese and no extra salt when we ordered our burgers. Our food came quite quick and was good and cooked as requested.

The beers - we go for the beers. Occasionally we might get something to nibble on, but we have never eaten a lunch or dinner here. We like to sit on the deck overlooking the river and soak up some sun while having a pint or two. You can't beat it if this is what you are after.
