This bar is also a brew pub for "Shipyard", it's probably the best bar scene in town, and the food is good but it's typical bar food. It does however have a lot of seafood which is pretty standard for southern Maine. I would recommend...More

Given its name, I'd expect standard pub fare. But Federal Jacks is a cut above that. All the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The harbor views are lovely.

There is something comforting about going to a pub where even if they don't know your name, they treat you like they do. Fantastic beer selection, great ambiance (view of the harbor in Kennebunkport) and versatile. Which means that you can bring the family in...More
