Although it was chilly in Pensacola, we were able to sit on the outdoor deck, which was partially enclosed and has heaters. The menu is pretty extensive, and everyone in our party was pleased with their food. I'd love to try it again when it's a bit warmer outside.

Whether you're here for cocktails, hors-d-oeuvres, lunch, or dinner, expect excellence. Food is very interesting, service is top-notch and to top that off, you have a relaxing view of Pensacola Bay, boats, and pelicans.

When you have been walking around downtown and the Yahoos Maritime Park with your loved one(s) for about an hour, where do you go for the best desserts in town? Try the sampler dish, enough for two persons, and our little Lisa ( shi tzu ). It was her birthday ( 9 yrs young ) and she shared the occasion... More

Don't get me wrong, the food is good. Very good, but it isn't the reason I go so often. This place is a triple threat - Great location, great people, great scene. And yes, the food is very good. Jaco's does not attract your average DT Pensacola crowd. Guests float around in white linen garmets here. Everyone is beautiful, and... More

this place has the food, the atmosphere and the view. Tony our server was a wealth of information on every dish on the menu and this being our first visit we were full of questions!! Our food was superb and the attention we received from everyone there made us feel like we were the only guests they had, but everyone... More

After stumbling upon Plaza De Luna we found Jaco's. You can chose to sit inside or outside and if you sit outside you have a nice view of the bay and marina. Outside seating does have radiant heat with plastic walls to protect you from the wind. The waitress was friendly and provided great service. We ordered the house wines... More

Service was very good, food was very average, not at all worth the price. Have been there several times with out of towners that want to go and it never changes. The view is worth it all.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch while in Pensacola (we came into Pensacola for the Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores) on the recommendation of a friend. It was a beautiful, warm and sunny afternoon and we were able to get a table outside facing the boats & marina. We had some great soup, fish tacos and pasta... More

Went with a large group on a slow night (took them by surprise and filled the restaurant). Service was very good. The food was average. We were not too impressed by the flatbreads (small thin pizzas). The best bet across the crown seemed to be the chop salad with mahi on top.
