terrific by the water food

We were a group of 14 and they were able to seat us at one large table outside. It was a great night and it was very comfortable to be outside. The service was very good and the menu varied...flatbreads, greens, lite, meat, chicken fish. Good value.

Sat at the table for over 25 minutes watching people get waited on and every waiter snd waitress walked right past my table and never once asked if we even wanted a drink. Maybe next time don't seat people just because there is an open seat.

Super location! Unique menu choices, food was delicious, get the guacamole and chips, the fries app. If I were manager I would work on the craft brew selection, but that won't stop us from coming back. Thanks for a wonderful meal!

This restaurant has really good food and a spectacular view. Our office has gone several times at lunch and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed their food. My husband and I enjoy going at sunset with the beautiful bay view and all of the boats (yachts) in the marina. I would definitely recommend trying it. I am a local and it is... More

Surprisingly Pensacola doesn't have a lot of places to eat outside and enjoy the water and the view. Jaco's is one of the best. You can sit outside shaded from the sun and enjoy the bay and the marina while the Wahoo's stadium sits in the background. What a view! And if you value your four legged family, you can... More
