I didn't give the restaurant 4/5 stars as the service was poor. I don't say that often but the waitress literally took our drink order, brought the drinks, then we didn't see her again until we waived her down for to go boxes and the check. She of course was very attentive after that. The food was fantastic. The flatbread... More

Pensacola downtown has been revitalized in recent years with interesting shops & restaurants. Jaco's sits .at the south end of this picturesque area. On the water with seating inside & out to view the beautiful vistas: yacht basin, circular park with fountains & ample easy parking.

We had a great variety - daily special of tuna, a burger, Cuban sandwich and kids chicken tenders and all were well done. The fries were awesome.

Have eaten here three times, and it never disappoints. They have a somewhat limited menu, but always have specials, and the food is always fresh and good, adequate portions, great service, outdoor and indoor seating overlooking an upscale marina. food for the seafood lover and the non-seafood lover alike, the dessert sampler is outstanding!

These guys are dog friendly. And all right on the water. It is pretty pricey but the service is good. Food is very good. However, if you want to sit there in a wheelchair with a service dog you will be very challenged to maneuver on their deck. Quite nice but not the right place for a dog and a... More

This must be one of the more popular places in Pensacola but it is worth it. Try the bruschetta and the fried green tomatoes. Entrees are a you pick 'em. Everyone in our party shared and no one was disappointed. Don't say it often but will return. As a side note great sunsets. Make sure you time it right.
