This is just a great place to come to and relax and eat. The view is awesome and the wait staff and host are super knowledgeable and friendly. Oh yeah, and the food was great.

We went to Jaco's for a late lunch the day we arrived in Pensacola. One of the reasons we chose Jaco's was because we had read that the restaurant is dog friendly, and we really wanted to walk our girl around town with us rather than leaving her in the hotel room. We were able to get an outdoor table... More

My wife wanted to eat lunch on the water and this restaurant was perfect. We were welcomed warmly and seated in a heated area outside with a wonderful view of the harbor. We split one of their flatbreads and it was delicious. Service was excellent. This is really a wonderful place to sit with your spouse, friends or a business... More

We found parking not too far from the restaurant. At "high season", parking could be a problem. We elected to sit outdoors in a sheltered area with overhead heaters. Very nice view of marina and yachts. My wife and I each had the Greek Salad with shrimp. Not as good as what we have elsewhere. One in our group had... More

Went in with my sisters for a cocktail. Nice place to go in and just hangout. We had the chips and guac for a snack. Friendly service. A bit cool outside so we chose to sit at the bar. If you want to sit out they have plastic drapes to block the breeze. Great blueberry mojito!! Will be back when... More

We got fried green tomatoes that weren't greasy, the mahi mahi reuben and portabello mushroom stack which was the best of the bunch. Also got two cocktails that were very good too. We sat outside, great view of the bay.

I've often dined at Jaco's when in downtown Pensacola. Located at the end of the main north-south street (Palafox), this restaurant seems to get better with every visit. Daytime and sunset views put you on a neighboring yacht or in the water. At night, it's quiet - except when the baseball team is in town! The food is more limited... More

This is a beautiful location. We visited one evening and the wait staff is super nice. After dinner we walked around they have a pier down from them. The food was also good I had the jacos tacos and my husband had the Cuban.
