Hadn’t been to Pensacola for a few years and decided to see how it has changed. It’s a great little downtown. Jaco’s sets out near kind of breakwater/ pedestrian walkway with a marina beside it. Great setting! We hit during brunch and they offered $2.00...More

The hubs and I love to watch a good sunset at Jacos and munch on the pomme frites appetizer (we really just eat it for the sauces it comes with!) and the drunken berries for dessert. So simple but so delicious!

Location, location, location is matched with an outstanding menu and superb service. We went to have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset and stayed through dinner. It was a great experience. If we lived nearby we would be regulars!

The view overlooks the marina. The staff was friendly and polite. The food was delicious. I ate the fish tacos, they were served on hard corn tacos and were very tasty. My coworks got the flatbread with steak and blue cheese, it was good too!...More

Great location! The salads are nice and fish is always a good choice. I’m not one for flatbreads but many like them here.

Been here a lot of times and never had a bad meal. The food is great and the service is top notch. Nothing better than a great meal on the water watching the boats and sunset.

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.
