We stopped for lunch while touring the Maine coast. Loved the location and view. The atmosphere is beachtown nice. Comfortable with a great view of the harbor. Quality was good but not great. Service was friendly but reserved and reasonably fast. Selection wasn't very good but the beer my husband tried he liked. It was Shipyard's Fuggles IPA. The flavor was very good but he doesn't find the piney or citrus flavors in the eastern IPA's. I had the pulled pork which was tasty but tough so I wouldn't recommend it. Hubby had the chowder which he said was great. Price on beer was reasonable but I thought the food was a little pricy for what we got. Probably wouldn't go back.

I have been her many times before, I am just now deciding to review it. It is a small brew pub, not a lot of seating. It is located on the second floor with a nice view overlooking Kennebunk Harbor. It has the atmosphere of a typical New England seafood place. Food was very good, serving high quality items and they suggest pairings with their beers, but a limited menu. Beer selection was ok for a brew pub, they were out of a couple of the beers on tap when I was their, seems odd even in an off season for a brewery to run out of its own beers. Not a bad place if you are in the area to go check out, but be prepared to spend some money there.

Make it a point to stop by Federal Jacks every time I'm around the area or travel between Kittery/Portland/Freeport. Excellent menu, atmosphere and views. Great spot year round, one of my personal favorites. Nice gift shop to stop through and grab a few souvenirs and fresh growler. I just wish they offered solstice ale for a longer duration.

My wife and I had drinks here on the first night (Sat) of our long weekend in Kennebunkport. It was nighttime, but the bar is on the second floor, and I can imagine the view must be pretty nice on a clear day. Inside, it's pretty generic looking. Very plain colors, no real decorations. Televisions scattered about for sports, and pool tables off in their own room. We grabbed two seats at the bar. There were 10 beers on tap, plus a cask. We had a few rounds, and I founds the beers to be average, on par for Shipyard. I had the pale ale on cask, then the stout, and finished with the brown (on sale). My wife tried the sunfish wheat, which was oddly fruity. The pale and the stout were OK, but the brown was watery. Service was fine, as it was busy but our waiter got to us when we could. Prices were cheap, $4 pints and $3 for the brown. There was supposed to be a live band at 10pm, but we overheard the drummer at 10:30 say they could not set up until some diners moved from their tables. We took off before the music started.
