Amanda is awesome. If you are having a bad day, she will make it all better with a great smile, a great attitude and a funny wit. The menu is fun and the Sunday Brunch is solid. Oh and the best part, they are DOG friendly outside. They gave our Schnoodle "Zoey" as much love as they did us.

I gave this the benefit of the doubt. 2 of the 3 entrees at the table were average at best, the other was very good. Service was excellent and the view is outstanding.

This is the perfect place for a great place to eat but to me it was just ok. The service was nothing to write home about and the prices for what you got was high.

Early evening dinner after a track meet. Forgot it was also Mardi Gras in Pensacola. Streets were blocked but Jack's was empty. Order of Pomme Frites was scarfed down immediately, orders were placed and food delivered promptly. The Salmon burger was not my wife's favorite, too much breaking. Son had the blue cheese burger, he pronounced the blue cheese on... More

My husband and I met my brother here for lunch. We had excellent Fish Tacos with that were truly lightly blackened and served with a chopped mango salsa that was excellent! My brother raved about the Salmon Burger. The view was beautiful looking out on the Palafox Pier Marina.

Our 54th anniversary was the 16th and we decided to go to Jaco's Bar And Grill for dinner. What a wonderful surprise. It is located at the end of Palafox in downtown Pensacola, FL on the water.
