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.

We enjoyed a drink on their patio. It offers a great view of the bay. The setting is its real plus. They also offer tasty hors d'oeuvres and a varied menu.

The food is good but we mainly come here for the pomme frites and the dipping sauces!!! To DIE for! The best dessert is the drunken berries as well. Its an excellent way to finish your meal. It is surprisingly light. Also, its awfully tough to beat the stunning view of Pensacola bay and the marina. We love to eat... More

We enjoyed our first visit to Jaco's. Lunch for 4 included the flat bread pizzas. Tasty and substantial. Service was very good, a real pro waited on us in the rain. We shall return. Just a little pricey.

We had only cocktails here on this visit, but I'd definitely go back. We had cocktails (my blueberry mohito was delicious) and simply enjoyed the breeze and the views. If you sit outside pick a table at either corner, as the breeze made for a very nice August outdoor experience.

Had an really good lunch here during the week. The service was excellent, the food very good, and the view wonderful. Seating indoors or outdoors makes me want to come back when the weather is a little cooler.

We enjoyed sitting outside, you can see the bay, Wahoo Stadium and some amazing boats at the marina. The service was good and the Jaco Tacos were delicious. We tried the dessert sampler and it was excellent.

Jaco’s has a nice view of the water but that is the only thing that makes this place special. If you dine inside the noise level is very high. I don’t dine there anymore because all of us have to yell at each other across the table. This is a great place to go with someone you don’t want to... More
