We were up visiting when a Sunday night football game that l wanted to see was on. They had it on multiple TV's! There is a bar as well as tables. The service was excellent and the food very good! a nice selection of beer too!

Federal Jacks is located on the second floor of a wharf side building with limited but adequate parking. There is plenty of covered deck space if the need to wait for a table arises, the decks over look a small inlet where the locals and tourists alike park their boats. The restaurant is located within easy walking distance of port shopping and B&B's. There is definitely a noise issue when the bar area is full but it's not anything that's unexpected at this restaurant. If you want quiet, romantic dining then this isn't the place for you. If you want to play some pool or watch a Pats game on a Sunday afternoon with friends and family, this is the place for you. Plenty of micro brew choices and a pretty good food menu at reasonable prices. Stay away on Prelude weekend unless you like lots of people in heavy coats and winter boots stuffed in next to you, it's madness!

Way too noisy and way too busy. Good enough food but super crowded. Most of the meals available were fried...I guess typical pub kind of food. Our wait to eat there was 45 minutes and then we were given a table that was too small for 5 people.

We had dinner on a Wednesday night in September. There was no wait, but they were slightly busy. Our dinners were superb! My husband had the Potato Haddock and I had the Haddock Taco - both were WONDERFUL!! We tried the Pumpkin Ale which was perfect for our Fall night! After dinner, we ordered an Ale and sat out on the deck next to the gas heater. It was beautiful! We loved it and will definitely be back again!

I ordered a salad with additional grilled shrimp. The shrimp were not cooked through and I left half of them on the plate. I still paid for it the next day as a result of eating just 3 shrimp. Make sure your seafood is completely cooked or don't eat it.
