First of all, me & my wife live in Michigan and our friends from New Hampshire took us here. What a great place with a great view (pier on the water) and great atmosphere. Federal Jack's has a distillery and brews their own beer. My friend told me about their seasonal Pumpkin Brew, so we both ordered it and it... More

We love to go to Federal Jacks as a family since it has a nice diverse menu. The kids enjoy going into the gift shop while my wife and I enjoy the views of the river. The beer is decent but with all the craft beer craziness going on now in Maine, I wouldn't make this a brewery destination alone.... More

We were there for an early lunch when the place had just opened for the day, so all the window seats were available. We had a fantastic view of the harbor. This restaurant also has a huge outside deck taking advantage of the outstanding location on the harbor. The restaurant and deck are on second floor, but there is an... More

After a day of driving around we only wanted a light dinner, not the extravaganza we enjoyed last night. Found this place and are glad we did. This is the home of Shipyard beer. I had a seasonal pint of Willow Head Hop beer. Not as heavy as an IPA, my usual yet very tasty. It went well with the... More

The view was great overlooking the water but the food was average. I ordered the nachos with chicken and the chicken was very dry and over cooked and my mum ordered a pork belly burger and the pork belly again was as dry as boot leather. Besides the food the staff were very friendly.

Great local bar with awesome local craft beers. Glass windows overlooking the bay are a nice touch too!

Annual excursion to the coast of Maine for lobster, brew pubs and scenery. A nice place overlooking the harbor with all of the expected activity you would imagine. Super fast and professional service. Put on our list of places we would get back to with friends

Nice restaurant, great brewery, but I was all out mad about the food portion I recieved. I ordered two fish tacos, but when they came, I seriously thought my daughter had set up some type of prank . There was a small sshred of lettuce and a piece of guacamole. The entire fish size, between TWO tacos, was the size... More

This is a very popular restaurant. No reservation but only had to wait 20 mins. Good staff who treated you well. Good honest food. Had the Lobster roll which was excellent. Pleasantly surprised by the check too - excellent value and great atmosphere.

Well the staff was friendly but we overheard a waitress telling the table next to us that she couldn't help them as she wasn't their server? What? So, my husband got the fish & chips which were excellent! However, I opted for the lobster roll which was an open hotdog roll with just crumbles of overcooked lobster. I should have... More
