If you are not interested in good pub food, or if you are looking for a nice, quiet place for a meal, this isn't the place for you. This is a great place to bring your kids for a meal or to hang out with friends and have one of the beers they brew on site or a blueberry margarita.... More

We sat outside and had a great time overlooking the Kennebunkport harbor. Service was excellent. All of the food, however, was just ok. Nothing was bad at all - it's just that nothing was overly great either. They also serve beer from the local brewery downstairs - it was also just ok - nothing bad, but nothing that great. If...

We always make a point to have dinner at Federal Jacks while on vacation in Maine. The atmosphere is friendly, bright and at times noisy. Outside seating is offered, we always eat indoors. It is on a marina, so most tables have a water view. The menu is varied, we usually take too long to order because there are so... More

outside seating and apps while we waited to be seated (plan on waiting at least 45 mins to and hour), food was delicious and worth the wait. Very friendly staff. Absolutely going back again. Got to see the sun set from the outdoor seating area is totally worth it....

I wasn't impressed. It was just okay. The service was slow, if we had kids with us, they wouldn't have been able to sit that long. The place seems busy.

Good, solid destination in Kennebunkport for wide range of pub grub and ales. Good food, good service, great view. Note, for those with mobility issues there's a elevator to the restaurant behind the shops.

Great brewpub featuring some of Maine's top beers. The beer is fantastic and the food great. Worth a visit.

We popped in for lunch and had an enjoyable experience. I had the delicious clam chowder - a generous bowl and we shared the fried clam plate which was excellent. There are a number of custom brewed beers and the "market garden" - a seasonal brew was excellent. Our server was outstanding. We opted to dine indoors due to threatening... More

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and just wanted some late night drinks. The staff was friendly. The bartender Brittney was friendly and delivered great customer service. There was a cover band playing there too and that was a real treat! Pleasant atmosphere and is the place to be after 10pm. My only warning would be... More

Feds is a good place to eat if you are in the mood for some nice local beers (try the Old Thumper) and bar food. We like to sit out on the porch and have the beer sampler and some fried seafood. The location is great (looking out over the Kennebunk river) and parking is complimentary valet, so you don't... More
