Great food and drinks with a view

Had a lovely evening sitting outside. The food and service were wonderful. The view of the pink sunset over the boat masts in the marina was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended. We will be back!

We've been here quite a few times the last couple of months. We love their food and they have amazing cocktails. The location is also pretty great and right on the water. I've made a habit of googling whatever giant oil rig or research ship is currently docked when we visit. But back to the food...ah-maze-zing! Recently we took our... More

Right off the bat (or better, "boat" as there are many nice ones to see from Jaco's) I want to award my Top Rating to Michelle (aka, Beautiful Eyes) our Perfect Server at our initial visit to Jaco's Excellent Bayfront B & G in Pensacola. Thanks Michelle and best wishes to you here in your new homegtown. Now, to the... More

I have been here many times since it first opened, mostly because the food is all great, the atmosphere is good, plus there are good views over the bay. Among my favorite meals are some of the flatbreads which are all nice and cost around $10. Located right at the south end of Palafox st (which they call Palafox Pier).

Always a good place to go and eat and watch the sunset over the water. The boats in the marina add to the atmosphere. The food is good and served by friendly staff.

Had family in from out of town and thought it'd be a nice setting for lunch. The view, service, and food made for a really nice experience. I will be returning.

The service here has always been top notch when we have visited. Food is pretty darn good too. Drinks can get expensive unless you get there early enough for happy hour. Get there close to dark and sit outside for the best scenery.

Jaco's has a great menu, located right on the water! Highly recommend their flatbreads; mix the Tender Bleu and the mushroom one... You won't regret it!

Everything about Jaco's is positive, save the bit pricey menu. Food very tasty, well-presented, service good, great views. (They wanted to seat us at a non-view table but we'd have none of that and insisted) Our wine was a California Pinot Grigio from Terra d'Oro: the best Pinot Grigio I ever had, and it ran over $30 a bottle.
