Federal Jacks is a consistently good stop for lunch. Local brews are excellent and the liquor pour is a bargain. Salads and seafood are always fresh and the service is excellent.

Lunch was yummy and it was close to our hotel. We came during the winter, so the brewery was not opened. Nice waterviews and looks like it will be a great place to go in the summertime.

We met a friend here for a mid winter lunch. The crowd was very lite, but the atmosphere and view were still top notch. We had fish & chips, a burger and a BLT style sandwich. Everything was cooked as requested and tasted very good. Nothing exceptional, but still a great place for good food and all that comes with... More

We had supper here on a night in January 2017. I ordered the french onion soup and my husband ordered the lobster bisque. My soup was just okay nothing special and my husbands bisque was brought out barely lukewarm and he had to have it reheated. It was tasty, but very little lobster pieces in it. I had wanted a...

Great place to grab some excellent food. Many choices both for food and beer. Great to look out on the harbor and enjoy the Maine experience.

Our favorite place to eat and drink in Kennebunkport. I love their beer selection. Yesterday I had my favorite, the black bean chili with a Blue Fin Stout. We also had a steak and artichoke skewer on a bed of steamed broccolli and mashed potato. After we ate we wandered through the gift shop. Love this place oh and by... More

This restaurant is located right near the water in Kennebunk near downtown Kennebunkport. There's a huge menu of food, and the drinks are all from the brewing company underneath the restaurant. Try the clam chowder when you go! A big favorite.

After an afternoon of shopping we were excited to go somewhere to have some food and drinks. We ordered the clam chowder and it really should be called potato soup as there was little to no clams in our bowls. Also ordered the calamari and again not much in the calamari and lots of fried batter. So disappointed as we... More
