I met a girlfriend after work for an early dinner and we had a wonderful time. The service is first-class and the cuisine is mouthwatering. I arrived early so I sat at the bar for a few minutes. The very hospitable bartender chatted it up and even asked my name. After dining for more than 2 hours and enjoying every... More

Although from the area, I haven't lived in Pensacola in nearly 15 years. I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of everything from food to service to atmosphere. It rivaled a big city quality in my lovely small hometown.

Jaco's has one of the best restaurant locations in Pensacola, with a fabulous view overlooking the harbor and bay. Prices are reasonable, there is outside seating.

Met my daughters for lunch. Server was excellent, but selections were limited. Two of my daughters did not enjoy their lunches and mine was fair. The lunches in question were the flat-bread (pizza), pasta with seafood and the fish sandwich. Probably will not visit this bar and grille for awhile.

My wife had Tuna and I had Surf and Turf and it was excellent for both eye and stomach. The best meal we have had for a long time. The service was fine as well and the location with harbor view great.

Natasha was a great server. She gets two thumbs up. And she was beautiful. The food was excellent but doesn't compare to Natasha.

We had some out of town company and wanted to take her to a downtown restaurant to see what our Pensacola was really like (we have lived here since 1953). As we drove down Palafox telling her all about the different sights heading towards the bay I thought of Jaco's. So glad I did. We had really great service from... More

While spending the night in the adjacent Palafox Pier marina, we had the opportunity to have dinner at Jaco's. The place was extremely busy this Friday night, but we were able to get seated within about 10 minutes. Excellent fish tacos and well-prepared drinks, coupled with a very attentive server, all provide the basis for a solid "Recommend".
