Lunch at Jaco's - loud but very good. Like the outside tables but decided to sit inside today because of the heat and humidity. Loud inside. Good menu at fair price. Food was very good. Service was excellent.

Located on the waterfront in downtown Pensacola; Jaco's has great food and a pleasant atmosphere. There is indoor and outdoor sitting and Jaco's has a perfect view for the great sunsets in Pensacola. Jaco's also features local artist's works on it's walls.

Food is marginal, but the location is amazing. Watch the Blue Wahoos fireworks on Saturday night. The dessert platter is delicious.

We've been to Jaco's many times and tonight was no different...it's very consistent with good food and service! Normally we visit for lunch or dinner (beautiful sunsets!) but brunch is great also! The bibb lettuce wraps and mushroom flatbread are my personal favorites but I've...More
