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.

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

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!

Typical brewpub in Kennebunkport just off main street. Large menu with good choice of local and international fayre, great choice of beers many from their on site brewery. Loud but would be good with friends for some fun. Service friendly and quick.

We stopped here at the recommendation of a shop owner. As expected the lobster was fantastic and bargain priced but the rest of our order was just average. Very noisy. great beer selection.
