We have been to Federal Jacks a couple of times and love it. Their fish tacos are so fresh - we get them every time we go! Next time we go we will definitely sit out on the deck, which is HUGE!

Great to find this place, a little off the main road, just over the bridge between Kennebunkport and Kennebunk. Enjoyed drinks and lunch in a lively setting with a lovely view of moored boats down below.

This restaurant and bar is in a great location upstairs and facing the harbour. great choice of beers as this is the home of the shipyard brewing company. Looking over the water and boats with a great beer in hand, what could be better.
