We ate here a few times during our visit to lovely Kennebunkport and we had some excellent service & food. We also had some service which was very poor which was surprising and a bit of a shame. The craft beer is always great. The food is usually always very good & plentiful.

On our annual trip to Maine in the summer we always drive to Kennebunkport to enjoy the shoreline and shop, and we always eat at Federal Jacks! The valet parking is easy, dining on the deck is so enjoyable and the food is always good.

We go to Federal Jack's often and are never disappointed. Salads, sandwiches, appetizers, ... all are dependably good. The atmosphere is very "Maine coast" and comfortable. Craft beers are very good. Nothing to complain about ... just good memories.

We had just arrived in town, and with it being a little later in the evening, we just wanted to go somewhere quick and easy near our hotel. I had seen a few sites suggesting Fed Jacks so I thought it would be nice. I regret going and not spending my money at a more worthy location. We walked in... More

We always stop at Jacks when we're in Kennebunkport. The food choices and quality are great. We will be back.

Extremely busy in the summer months and well worth it. Original Shipyard brew pub offering great draft selection and the menu is far from just the ordinary "pub" fare. Well worth the trip.

We had friendly service, fresh beer and great food. A great spot for lunch. I would imagine in the summer it probably gets pretty crazy but we only had to wait about 15 minutes on a Saturday at lunch time.

We sat at the bar for happy hour as we sampled their beers. Although we did not eat, we enjoyed the bartenders' trivia hour with the bar crowd and actually won a few rounds! Friendly and happy place!
