Excellent lunch

While in Pensacola on a quick drive through drove down to the Bayfront Sorry absolute miserable weather which I am sure is rare. We went to Jaco's for lunch and had a great meal with excellent service and enjoyed the scenery. Hope to get back for a longer stay

Jaco's is located on the bay and has a great view of the marina and downtown area. The menu is broad and has flavors for every palate. They have some specialty drinks which were flavorful and refreshing. We had a cheese plate, antipasto and shared an entree, plenty of food. Pensacola and the area is NOT known for great attentive...

We were here for lunch. It is a beautiful location and lots of outside eating. Unfortunately it was a cold day so we ate inside, but the doors were open and we still felt like we were outside. The service was very good but our food was just ok and slightly overpriced, but I kind of expect that from the... More

We stopped by with no reservation at 7:30 and even though they were packed we got our choice of a inside or outside table with only a 30 minute wait. Pretty good for a Saturday night. The hostesses were great, very friendly . When we were seated our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Only negative comment about this restaurant... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Sat outside and had excellent views. Quick, efficient service and food was very good. Really liked the French fries! Didn't have a big meal but would totally come back just based on the location and good service.

Jaco's is always a favorite! We were seated outside, as we brought our dog with us. Brittany greeted us immediately and brought our pup a bowl of water. Our brunch entrees were delicious. I ordered the fried green tomatoes, goat cheese, a fried egg topped with canadian bacon and hollandaise all on top of fresh greens. My boyfriend ordered the... More

My previous couple of visits were great. This time not so great. We were a table of 4 and the appetizers were okay. For dinner one person had the Ahi Tuna which she said was excellent, but her mashed potatoes were dry and cool, like instand potatoes that someone did not add enough milk and made it crumbly. Another had... More

My husband and I were in town a short time for a race. After we checked into our hotel we were looking for somewhere to eat by the water and relax. Jaco's was perfect. Our server Chris was very helpful and knowledgeable about the food and Pensacola in general. The food was fantastic. The view was amazing, especially at sunset.... More

Been here before, but it's been a while. And today was an excellent March 2015 day and perfect for eating outside and enjoy the view. I started with the Bruschette and it was delicious. It came with four different spreads, my favorite being the caramelized onions with mushrooms and sautéed in a balsamic reduction and I would have sworn that... More
