Great Place to Watch The Boats

We had a lovely early evening meal at Jaco's based on the recommendation of our innkeeper. The food is light and delicious and, with it's location right on Pensacola Bay, you can watch the pleasure boats at the marina go by and the huge oil rigging supply ships in port. Jaco's specialty is... read more

Visiting Pensacola this weekend on a whirlwind tour, and came across Jaco's. This restaurant has the privilege of location, as it is on the waterfront, and hosts beautiful sunsets! The menu selection is where the eclectic comes in, as the obviously creative chef really puts a new twist on some established entrees. The diner has the choice of dockside seating,... More

Great location and a good view of the sunsets on the Gulf. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and attentive. Thea was our server and she did a fantastic job with a genuine smile.

I live in Pensacola and selected dinner at Jaco"s after wine tasting in downtown. Honestly found the food just ok. I had the fish tacos which tasted fine but it came with two tablespoons of beans and about as much cut up mango. For $13 I thought the portions could have been more generous. The menu is also limited. My... More

I love this place and highly recommend it. Their menu is unique and I've loved every dish I've had. The fish tacos are my favorite lunch option. Their steaks are excellent as well as the flatbreads.

My wife and I are Michigan "snowbirds" staying in Gulf Shores for 2 months. We were visiting Pensacola for a couple of reasons - one of which was to have lunch. I had looked up a few places on-line before we left - Jaco's was on our list. We ended up there. It was not a good day - windy... More

The ambiance was nice, the view was good. Just wasn't what we were hoping for after checking out their website. Be aware that they don't serve brunch on Saturday.
