This was our second visit to Jaco's, we were there with a group in April and Ariel did a fantastic job so of course we requested her on this visit. We had the fish tacos and they were fantastic. Ariel again was "Johnny on the sport"; good luck to you, sister.

A little pricey but the taste is great. So is the scenery. Bay front, dockside. Sat outside and enjoyed the view. Take your business customers to lunch here or enjoy a respite from beach activities. Tour Historical Pensacola and/or downtown Pensacola while you are there.

Enjoyed a great meal here with my wife and received awesome service from our favorite server Tony Parish! I had the Southwestern Salad with chicken which was extremely flavorable! I have also enjoyed their Wild Mushroom flatbread as well as the Cuban and the burger is incredible as well. Tony always makes us feel welcome and is not only personable... More

Enjoyed another incredible meal with superior service (as always) from our favorite server Tony Parish!! I enjoyed the most incredible Tender Blue Salad, the steak was a tender as butter, every component of the salad was mouthwatering awesome!! They always welcome our 8 month old Lab puppy James, he is always treated like royalty and he looks forward to all... More

I really enjoyed this place. Everyone was so nice and the food was delicious. We sat outside and watched the Blue Angels practice off in the distance. It was great. Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area.

Everything was great at Jaco's. Got the tender blue flatbread and southwestern salad, our server Jesse suggested adding salmon to the southwestern salad which really brought it over the top. Jesse was a great server. We will definitely be back for some fried Oreos.

Found this place when in Pensacola. Vicky, our waitress recommended several dishes and I went with the seared tuna and was not disappointed. The surprise was the fried oreo. The only place I have ever had this was in Philly. Definitely a good way to end a meal. Will be back next time in town.

A favorite place to take out-of-town visitors who are not real hungry. Food quality is always excellent, but some may consider it pricey for what you get.
