Very friendly service and a nice view of the harbor. You can tick about 12 beers, but they all taste the same and are pretty boring. I wouldn’t recommend the full sampler. The food is bad.

Well, I feel obligated to say something on this place as its got some great food here. The beers aren’t bad, perhaps nothing to go bonkers about, but the service was always good. As far as I know, all of the standard Shipyard and KBC beers are there. Its pretty clean and well serviceable but almost every time I’ve been there, the waiters and waitresses have had a lack of knowledge of beers. If one is going to have a brewpub, try not to hire people who are going to recommend wine over beer with food. It just shows plain stupidity.

This is a lovely setting right on the water with a deck overlooking the lagoon area as well as interior seating. Off street parking. You can get all of the standard Shipyard and Kennebunk Brewing Company beers there as well as a few brewery-only beers. They do provide tasting samplers up to 13 five ounce glasses. The menus has a variety of seafood, sandwich, meat choices. This is a big tourist area for Maine so expect to pay a little more. Nice gift shop. While the service is friendly, I like to ask the staff about the in-house beers and the brewing process and my waiter did not seem too inclined to discuss any of that with me. I recommend going during the off-season to avoid the traffic.

I like Federal Jacks. It is right on the water, has nice ambiance, and really good seafood. Good lunch or dinner stop after a day in Kennebunort.

Nice location with river view. Service was good, busy place. Limited beer selection. Only had time for one so selected the Taint Town Pale Ale, which was just OK. Wish I had more time for this visit.

We had very good service, sat outside overlooking the harbor. Beer was good and so was the food, someone did screw up my order of a IPA, I got a brown ale instead, but it’s all good

great location, OK beer, food was average. Mainly Shipyard beers, with a couple of house beers. Decent chowder & Lobster Roll. Avoid the Pot Roast sandwich

Visited this past weekend. Had lunch and beers on their deck. Never even went inside, so can’t say much about the decor. The deck was nice, but next time I’ll wait for a table in the shade. Service was decent. They were busy. Food was good and I thought reasonably priced. Beer selection was just okay. It is mostly Shipyard, although I had the Kennebunkport Taint Town Pale Ale. Nice gift shop downstairs where you can get Shipyard beer, glassware & misc souviner type items. I’ll go back.

Had lunch here, and visited the store downstairs, where you can buy bottles. Nice place, overlooking the water. Waitstaff had an OK level of knowledge on the beers. Food was decent, but not great, and a tad pricey. Decent brews.
