This was our first time at Jaco's and although we loved the view and had fabulous service, the menu is quite limited. My husband and I ordered salads. They were a bit pricey but quite tasty. My son had the mahi burger and said it was "average" at best, nothing special. The fries though ... they have the BEST french... More

The view when eating outside at Jaco's is the best! However, the food is overpriced. I just met friends there for lunch and my roast beef salad lunch (no drinks or dessert) was $20.00 with the tip. The water view at the marina and neat atmosphere is what keeps this place going.

Waterfront restaurant with a European, business feel. This is the place for business luncheons, quaint birthday cheer, delicious salads, wraps, and anything they serve really. The staff is accomidating in this casual to dress niche. The water views and atmosphere alone is refreshing. I must return. Recommend to try at least once.

We often done at Jaco's for lunch. Always great service and a terrific view. I prefer the Tender Blue salad or the flat bread pizzas.

Went here thinking would be a seafood place...it wasn't. I had the ahi tuna, basically sushi with wasabi mashed potatoes. Service was great, view nice at sunset. I'd go back, but probably only for a drink.

Location is nice, sat out side looking at the yachts in the marina. Sun was blazing hot but that'll happen. Had a blackened Mahi reuben that was good not great. Wife had some sort of veggie flatbread that she was very disappointed in. Overall we just felt that it was overpriced for what you actually got but I suppose you... More

Living in the area, we try to patronize locals whenever possible. What started out as a great place for brunch has literally served us for the last time. Easter Sunday, our party of 6 who had reservations, was 45 minutes late getting seated because the people at our table wouldn't leave. They'd been there 3 hours and due to rainy... More

We've been to Jaco's many times and always have a great time. Hope to someday take our pup and enjoy the outside seating. Lots to look at around the restaurant. Although they have many items to chose from the Tender Blue salad and Tender Blue flatbread is usually what we crave. To start, the Jaco Guaco is a nice light... More
