“Great place to watch the sunset!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I met a girlfriend after work for an early dinner and we had a wonderful time. The service is first-class and the cuisine is mouthwatering. I arrived early so I sat at the bar for a few minutes. The very hospitable bartender chatted it up and even asked my name. After dining for more than 2 hours and enjoying every second of it, we were on our way out of the door when the bartender called me by name and said good bye. Now this is what I call friendly hospitality!! Jaco's is a great place to watch the sunset and enjoy some great waterfront dining. Try the tender blue flatbread and a stuffed blue cheese olive martini.

“Perfect night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Although from the area, I haven't lived in Pensacola in nearly 15 years. I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of everything from food to service to atmosphere. It rivaled a big city quality in my lovely small hometown.

“Hard to Beat the View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Jaco's has one of the best restaurant locations in Pensacola, with a fabulous view overlooking the harbor and bay. Prices are reasonable, there is outside seating.

“Only Fair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Met my daughters for lunch. Server was excellent, but selections were limited. Two of my daughters did not enjoy their lunches and mine was fair. The lunches in question were the flat-bread (pizza), pasta with seafood and the fish sandwich. Probably will not visit this bar and grille for awhile.
