Our 54th anniversary was the 16th and we decided to go to Jaco's Bar And Grill for dinner. What a wonderful surprise. It is located at the end of Palafox in downtown Pensacola, FL on the water. The food was delicious and we had a quiet enjoyable evening. The menu is not large, but gives a variety that allows you... More

Small upscale place at the marina. Very friendly staff and locals. Had the crab cakes. Huge chunks of crab with very little filler, best I've ever had on the Gulf Coast. I will be back any time I am back in Pensacola. You can not get better service anywhere if you sit at the bar when Michell is the bartender.

My husband and I had a delicious lunch at Jaco's while enjoying the beautiful water view. I had fish tacos and he had a mahi rueben. Both were wonderful. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable. Such a great lunch experience. We will return!

I met with a group of friends for a casual lunch. This area right off the water and the docking ships is exceptional. The parking is easy even if you have to wait a minute or so. We all had salads or flat bread pizzas. I had the vegetarian style pizza: very enjoyable. Nothing to write home about, but suitable... More

Great outside seating with view of Pensacola Bay and harbor. Excellent service from our waiter ( Nick). Menu offered a nice selection of Salads, flat breads, and sandwiches. I got the Greek salad with shrimp which were fresh and perfectly cooked. Beautiful day, beautiful place, wonderful experience.

My husband and I go there for the great view and beautiful sunsets. We also like their drink menu, the Pear Ale is a must! The flat breads are great and food is consistently good. Upscale atmosphere is great for a date night.

Definitely not a lunch place if you have strictly one-hour for lunch. It usually takes about 1 1/2 hours for lunch from being seated, ordering to getting your food and eating it. The food has always been tasty, just slow service. Also, several times when I have visited, my first meal choice was not available. So try to be amendable... More
