Really enjoyed the fish tacos, chips with salsa and guacamole, and lump crab salad. Nice place with higher prices but definitely not a tourist trap. Prices were comparable to food along gulf but with notable chef quality. Nothing is without its special spin and with great skills in this foodies opinion. Great viewing on water with outside dining not only... More

I was in Pensacola for the weekend and decided to try Jaco's. I met up with a few friends and had a great evening. The appetizers were great and the Jaco's tacos are highly recommended! Staff was efficient and prices were fair for good seafood. My only con is the outside was poorly lit and it was hard to even... More

Jaco's is an all around great time. Amazing views, food, and drinks. Love coming here year round especially when it's warm enough to sit outside.

Beautiful views, great service, delicious food and $2 Bloody Mary's, mimosas or champagne. Can't beat it. Yummy selection of egg dishes and flatbreads if you are feeling more like lunch than brunch. The blueberry French toast looked amazing but a bit of a sugar overload. Maybe next time we'll split one.

We headed to Jaco's for a late lunch and were pleased to see that it was happy hour already! The happy hour prices were great and the cocktails absolutely delicious. All of us in our party had different flatbread pizzas, which we all loved. We were so pleased rhat a local recommended Jaco's to us and would definitely go back... More

Have always enjoyed the Jaco's location and viewing the boats from any table. Lately, their service and speed of attention has declined, but their Sunday brunch and drink specials are worth trying out while in the area. Meals are light and reasonably priced. Go when there is a light breeze and sit outside.

We went to Jaco's for a late lunch the day we arrived in Pensacola. One of the reasons we chose Jaco's was because we had read that the restaurant is dog friendly, and we really wanted to walk our girl around town with us rather than leaving her in the hotel room. We were able to get an outdoor table... More

My wife wanted to eat lunch on the water and this restaurant was perfect. We were welcomed warmly and seated in a heated area outside with a wonderful view of the harbor. We split one of their flatbreads and it was delicious. Service was excellent. This is really a wonderful place to sit with your spouse, friends or a business... More

We found parking not too far from the restaurant. At "high season", parking could be a problem. We elected to sit outdoors in a sheltered area with overhead heaters. Very nice view of marina and yachts. My wife and I each had the Greek Salad with shrimp. Not as good as what we have elsewhere. One in our group had... More
