We stopped in for lunch while visiting Kennebunkport just a couple of weeks ago. We were looking for a light lunch of Maine seafood, and we found this great place. The service of great, and we got a table with a view of the water. The food was excellent. We would definitely stop in again.

Awesome place! Would recommend you go during the summer to get the tasting during the tour but the tour was good anyway! Meal was awesome and a great atmosphere!

Typical brew pub...a "casual eats" place with tasty, well priced food. Many of the trendy, more expensive eateries do not take reservations, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. It's at the far end of the shopping center, so you have to look for it. Try to get a table by the window!

Atmosphere is louder then your average restaurant with a crowded bar and back pool room taking up a good portion of the space. Food was average pub fare and very casual. Many beer on tap and samplers available. Good place for quick lunch or dinner with outstanding blueberry pie.

First of all, me & my wife live in Michigan and our friends from New Hampshire took us here. What a great place with a great view (pier on the water) and great atmosphere. Federal Jack's has a distillery and brews their own beer. My friend told me about their seasonal Pumpkin Brew, so we both ordered it and it... More

We were there for an early lunch when the place had just opened for the day, so all the window seats were available. We had a fantastic view of the harbor. This restaurant also has a huge outside deck taking advantage of the outstanding location on the harbor. The restaurant and deck are on second floor, but there is an... More

After a day of driving around we only wanted a light dinner, not the extravaganza we enjoyed last night. Found this place and are glad we did. This is the home of Shipyard beer. I had a seasonal pint of Willow Head Hop beer. Not as heavy as an IPA, my usual yet very tasty. It went well with the... More

The view was great overlooking the water but the food was average. I ordered the nachos with chicken and the chicken was very dry and over cooked and my mum ordered a pork belly burger and the pork belly again was as dry as boot leather. Besides the food the staff were very friendly.

Great local bar with awesome local craft beers. Glass windows overlooking the bay are a nice touch too!
