Food was wonderful and when you go to Jacos get the fried key lime pie for dessert,unreal. Our service was great thanks to Mitchell Ortega...the man knows the menu and is a great "salesman" for the Jacos. I'll be back....

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!

The view is of the Marina, but it is fun to see the boats and people watch. Food is delicious- we had a snack of the flatbread. Tasted fresh and unique. Their drinks are delicious, if not a little small for the money paid- but...More

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

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.
