I didn't know there was a Federal Jacks until I went into a side parking lot. This was a great place to enjoy dinner with the family with a view of the water. Good selection of food for parents and the kiddies. Nice and casual.

We visited here for dinner and were promptly seated outside on the deck, overlooking the harbor area of Kennebunkport. The menu had a wide selection of pub food, with the seafood offerings being mostly fried. Our waiter did a very good job and the food...More

Spontaneous stop around 5:15 the evening after Labor Day crowds departed. Parking was easy and we were given the corner window table with a view of the harbor and marina to compensate for lack of availability for a table outdoors on the deck. We started...More
