I will be back!

A friend and I get together every few weeks for dinner. We try to visit restaurants which are new to us. We'll last night we visited Jaco's. Our meal was great, the marina view was beautiful and our server (Nancy) was very personable and attentive. We both agreed that we will return.

The food is superb, and the wait staff top notch. The Wild Mushroom Flatbread is extremely tasty. You can miss with this restaurant. Even if not your first time, a new item (food or beverage) will make it seem like a "new best place to eat". The view is second to none, and the whole experience makes it a favorite... More

We just happened to spot this restaurant while passing through and found it to be a nice trendy waterfront dinner stop. It's busy and the tables are bit close to call it a fine dining bistro, but what the heck the food and service were great.

We were scouting out downtown Pensacola when we got to the roundabout at the south end of Palafox Street. The bay had dark storm clouds looming over it, and there was a parking spot close to the back door of Jaco's, and we were hungry. We made it to the door just as a torrential downpour began. We both ordered... More

A nice little restaurant with a beautiful view of the water. The menu is not overwhelming but has enough choices to make a lunch or dinner worth the drive. You can dine inside or outside, your choice. Visit Jaco's. I am sure you'll love the atmosphere as well as the food!

Obviously, when going to dinner here, the first thing we noticed was the stunning views of the marina and harbor. Wow! What a great location for a restaurant. The place itself was not that big, and you may end up waiting for a bit. They do have outside seating, but was a bit on the chilly side that night, so... More

Me and my Family ate here on Saturday night. We sat outside overlooking the Marina and (new) Ball-park. The scenery was excellent, (2 thumbs up). The Staff were swamped with customers, yet, still managed a good level of customer service, (another 2 thumbs up). The food was OK. My wife had the Lasagna and she said it was excellent. Her...

Finally got the chance to try this place, and so happy we did! Came here for Sunday brunch. Mimosas were great. Had the stuffed french toast and husband had the steak and eggs. Perfect portions for brunch and just delicious. Beautiful scenery. Fantastic service. Will have to come for dinner next time!

Loved the food and the staff. Thanks for a fun lunch! I appreciate Tony's help with the flight school students. Vickey thanks for being a great waitress!
