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

My first visit to Jaco's was today. Wife had visited 10 days ago. The location is great. Right on the water with a wonderful outdoor deck and a great view from inside as well. Our server was Contessa. All I can say is that she is fantastic. Completely knowledgeable about everything on the menu from ingredients to preparation to spice... More

I was very happy we chose Jacos for wine and dinner at sunset. It is on Pensacola Bay and the view was unsurpassed at sunset. There is no better place to eat in Pensacola, especially for the value. There was great food and drinks. The wine list is not extensive but it is ample. The service is friendly and they... More

My husband and I were in Pensacola on business on August 20, 2014 and decided to have lunch at Jaco's Bayfront Bar & Grille, after hearing their advertisement on a local TV news show. Parking is a challenge, but we were fortunate to be able to find a spot across the circle from the restaurant. We entered from the side... More

With both indoor and outdoor dining, most opt for the latter to gain the advantage to the best sunset viewing. The Lemon Drop Martini is my libation of choice, although to get choice vodka be prepared to pay for it. ($11.95 +$2 upcharge for Grey Goose). Lovely presentation with the thinly sliced lemon gracing the lip. Flatbread pizzas are my... More

The food is amazing and so is the view. We usually go there for Sunday brunch with the same server, Mallory, and are always pleasantly surprised with the experience.

This was an unplanned stop for us but turned out to be a pleasant surprise. We had the fish tacos and steak salad, both of which were excellent. The food was fresh, with unique ingredients and flavors. Our waitress was also outstanding, and we and a nice view of the bay and docking area. It's a very clean, upscale place... More

I had the Filet Mignon and my wife ordered their Ahi Tuna. Both were great and our waitress, Hannah, was on her best. We waited on nothing. Food was great (especially the Tuna). We arrived shortly before sunset and enjoyed a spectacular scenery with the marina in the foreground. Great job Jaco's.
