Ate here Friday night the 19th and was welcomed with a warm greeting! Our server, Chris, was awesome. Attentive without being overbearing ... Somehow knew just when to stop by. I chose one of the flatbread dinners and was thrilled at how good it tasted...I ate every bit of it! Contessa, the house manager, stopped by to check on us.... More

We ate at Jaco's for dinner while visiting Pensacola. The food is top notch, especially the Roasted Corn Soup. (Give me the recipe and no one will get hurt.) Creamy and sweet topped with glazed onions. The dinner was fantastic and then, to top it off, the desert sampler was superb. Can't go wrong with Jaco's. Our waiter - Chris... More

I go to Jaco's regularly for Sunday brunch which is fantastic. The service is great and I have never had a complaint about the food! The managers are very attentive and always make themselves known. Most weekends we have Mallory as our server and she is fantastic! All in all GREAT place in Pensacola

I came into Jaco's by chance on my way to Destin the other night and was blown away by the top notch food and service. I sat at the bar and had a drink while I watched the sun set over the bay. Andy was fun and we had a nice chat while I ate and soaked in the atmosphere.... More

My husband and I wanted lunch, and ended up with a great overall experience! If you are ever in the Pensacola area, I would HIGHLY recommend a visit to this beautiful restaurant! We were seated immediately on the outside deck overlooking the Marina (got to watch over our favorite boat, the Dare II!) We were greeted by our AMAZING server,... More

This is a casual place near the water. You can see all the boat docked. They serve great food and are always busy. They also have a bar inside, but we like to sit outside. The waiters are nice, but the one we had had a little attitude like she didn't want to be there. I asked for water as... More

Our recent trip to Pensacola gave us the opportunity to check local restaurants and sites. We decided to go to downtown Pensacola by the bay. It was by chance that we stopped at Jaco's to have lunch. The restaurant is located by the Marina with a great view of the boats on one side and the a Naval Ship "Deep... More
