Been here now twice on visits up to the area over the past two years. The location is fine and on the days we have been there, there has been quite the lively, if not young, crowd. I used to enjoy the Old Thumper beer at a local RI sports bar when they carried it some years ago, and on this visit I had a cask version which was enjoyable. They also produced a draft pale ale which was fresh and tasty. A sticking point was when moving to the ouside area, by law one must give up the glass for a pour into plastic, but I managed to circumvent the bouncer and carried on (slap, slap that wrist)... We ended the eve there at closing and were surprised how time just flew by. And just about everyone we met as locals were great to hang with.

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.
