We needed a place for a birthday party - Jaco's Bayfront Bar & Grille turned out to be the perfect place. The service was outstanding - the food was excellent (we had a pork chop). I would highly recommend this place. We loved it!

One of my favorite places to eat when visiting Gulf Breeze on vacation. I've never had a meal I didn't enjoy 100%! We had a terrific server today named, Wayne. I encourage you to ask for him. He is so pleasant and personable. Enjoy!

A nice place for lunch or casual dinner. Great view, food, friendly atmosphere and service! Fresh seafood is fantastic! Inside, covered outside, or outside seating. Overlook the nearby marina or the adjacent park with an occasional local fishing. Also distant view of Gulf Breeze or...More

Jaco’s is always great, but they truly exceeded expectations on my last visit. I recently had dinner with my daughter, her homecoming date, and a group of their friends. The seating was great, the view of the water was beautiful, and the food was delicious....More

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
