Have only eaten lunch here, but it's a great place to sit outside, have a cocktail and watch the beautiful Pensacola Bay. Their food is always good.

Took out of town family members here for lunch yesterday. Breezes off the waterfront and boats in the harbor were the perfect recipe after walking thru the market area on Palofox and meandering down Palofox and looking in all of the quaint shops open on...More

Our party of 4 visited Jaco’s on a Friday evening. We sat on the patio and loved the seaside atmosphere. We ordered various dishes and all enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter was attentive even though the place was packed. Jaco’s is definitely worth a visit.

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
