You cannot beat the location, particularly if you want to watch the sunset. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food was tasty. However, I was a bit surprised by the portions; I left hungry. I think there are better options in the area.

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!

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.
