I’ve eaten at Jaco’s three times in the last couple of months. Each visit all of the food has been delicious and service is consistently great! This is my new Pensacola favorite! The pork medallions with potatoes and spinach is amazing!

I met my daughter at Jaco's for lunch. We had the flatbread sandwichs, which looks like a pizza, and they were very good. The service was excellent! We took a walk through the marina after lunch. Nice spot - would recommend.

Fifteen of us descended on this well- known Pensacola restaurant. Our server, Michelle, did an excellent job taking care of us. We even needed separate checks...for people scattered about the tables. She never complained, kept the water glasses full, and got all the meals out...More

The best feature of this restaurant is the view to the seaport. And, fortunately, they have the obvious - a chef that prepares excellent seafood! The blackened mahi reuben was mouthwatering as it sounds and calamaris were very fresh and tasty indeed. The price level...More

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.
