We were visiting family in Foley,Alabama and they took us to Jaco's Bayfront Bar and Grille in Pensacola. We totally agree with their glowing reports. It had a unique menu for a bar and Grill. I had penne pasta with Parmesan cheese sauce spinach tomatoes olives and Italian sausage. My wife had a steak salad both of or items were... More

My friend and I were regulars here every Sunday for a few months! The Breakfast is lovely and silly as it sounds, to this day I am convinced there is magic in the Oatmeal as it was the best Ive ever eaten. My friend preferred the Steak and eggs. Try the Blackberry Mojito, it is to die for! Sitting on... More

We accidentally discovered Jaco's shortly after they opened and have been regulars ever since! It is a great place for both a glass of wine & appetizer or a leisurely meal. The service and food are always fantastic. My favorites are the bruschette, pomme frittes and the pesto flatbread. Great sunset views and outdoor dining but during the colder months,... More

As a local, variety in dining is key. This local place never disappoints. Fresh food and to die for scenery. Wonderful experience!

Nice view of parked boats. The lovely R. is in a wheelchair and the staff made sure all was well and arranged the perfect table. This was the beginning of an enjoyable visit. Very reasonably priced wine list. We tried a few flat breads and all were tasty and served hot. Jaco's is a popular stop, we were not rushed... More

Just walking by, you'd never know Jaco's Bayfront Grill has such a gorgeous view. Located overlooking the yacht basin, the restaurant is designed for panoramic views from both the south side and west-facing front. The dining terraces are roofed and clear plastic sides can be unfurled on windy days. Indoor dining is also available. Two of my dining companions had... More

My husband and I particularly enjoy Jaco's Sunday brunch, including the drink specials (Mimosas or Bloody Marys). The Sunday brunch offers a limited menu; we've tried most of the brunch menu items, and everything has been delicious. Jaco's sits on the edge of Pensacola Bay, alongside a marina, and the view is serene and lovely.

The dinner experience at Jaco's was very good, but we were expecting more fish and seafood options on the menu. Our dinners were excellent and the service and atmosphere could not have been better. The menu has a large selection of flatbreads, so will go back again, most likely for lunch on a nice day when we can be outside... More

Nice location, good food, high prices. Not a bad experience, just a non-memorable experience. I thought it would have more atmosphere than it did. A little high priced for just visiting the Deluna Plaza.
