My husband and I went to dinner , excellent atmosphere, quiet . We do not like loud noisie places. We sat in the Florida room and loved it. The live music has been excellent both times I have been there. The food is great. Hubby got the lobster tails, I got the chicken foley , mine was ok chicken didnt have any flavor. Will go again and highly recommend !

The food was great starting from the first bite of wedge salad to the lobster tails. The piece de resistance was the bacon cheesecake, which was incredible and proved again that bacon does make everything better!

Fine Dining in PC
This young chef has hit the mark with his creations. The lobster bisque is the best I've ever eaten and I've sampled a few at some pricey restaurants. This is the fine dining restaurant Panama City has been lacking for years. Now I don't have to drive across the bridge to get excellent food anymore. Staff is friendly and welcoming and service was efficient. Great bar selections as well.

Panama City Fine Dining
G Foley's is Panama City's answer to fine dining. We have been there on numerous occasions and have had wonderful experiences. The service and atmosphere is second to none, everyone there treats you as if you are a VIP. The food is excellent and the presentation is very appealing. One of the best things is that one does not have to drive to Seaside or Aly's Beach for fine dining. A dining experience at G Foley's as good if not better then along Hwy.30A. For price and quality of food you can't go wrong. If you have a special occasion or just want a nice night out this is the place to go.

Best in Panama City!
I thought we were being treated as special guests when staff opened a side gate and let us into the restaurant, but then we were lost in the maze, trying to find the hostess stand. When finally found, we were the only ones. No hostess. After a lengthy time a server came up and told us,"She will be right with you". Still, we waited.
We did finally get seated and our server talked to us about the menu. The chef came to our table and explained what he could fix for my wife who needed a gluten free experience. He was great! Now we were ready to order; where was the server?
Nevertheless, we finally got our food; the best that we had in 2 weeks of Fla. travel. I would go back in a heart beat! Super grilled shrimp and grouper.

A Wonderful Experience
G. Foley's is a wonderful place that should be experienced by everyone and often. The food is well prepared and delightful. The menu is varied, with the seafood you would expect in a Gulf shore resort and numerous items from the grill for those who do not prefer seafood. The wait staff is personable and attentive, without being intrusive. The ambiance is elegant, without being stuffy or stiff; casual elegance. Perfect place for that special occasion or just to celebrate that it is today. One of the very best restaurants in the Panama City area. Don't miss it!

23rd Street's Hidden Secret
G. Foley's is on the beach side of 23rd just west of Beck Avenue, you don't see it if you're a mall shopper on the east end. You're missing a great night out if you've never tried G. Foley's. First, go to the website and get a feel for where the owner, George, and his staff is coming from. Ambiance is teriffic. From the well done dinning rooms off the front door to the outdoor deck behind the restaurant. We sat on the enclosed patio, but with all of the double French doors open it was like sitting outside with the air conditioner running. If you get real lucky, Angie will be your server. No disrepect for the other wait-staff, it's just that she is great. BTW, FOOD IS WONDERFUL!

Overall experience was definitely satisfying. Excellent servers, good variety of entrees, the finest prime rib that we have ever had. The outside seating is very pleasant and the musician playing really added to the experience.

Hello/Goodby special occasion
...one family member was on the way in town, another on the way out - we'd have only one dinner together so decided to have it here! We shared ahi tuna and green tomato bruchetta appetizers, and each had a different entree - oh, and two cups of lobster bisque! We were too full for dessert! Food was delicious and just the right amount of attention from our server. And my better half said one of the best margaritas he had ever had! Absolutely nothing to complain about!!

The best of Panama City
G. Foley's in Panama City is a much needed upgrade to the restaurant selections of Bay County. The experience was fantastic! You will not find the normal greasy fried food, dive atmosphere, or tourist trap restaurant that makes up 90% of Bay County's dining establishments. This is a gem and deserves better support from the community. The food is outstanding. Our server was new, and therefore could have been better, but others tell me that normally the service is good. The atmosphere is clean and new and is relaxing and welcoming. The wine list is wonderful with some unique and great selections by the glass. PC, please support this fabulous restaurant, you don't have many this good.

gem of Panama City
Absolutely superb in every way; who would dream you could be like "in the garden" right in the midst of traffic on 23rd Street? We love Bonefish but G.Foleys rates higher with us as it is more personal and we DID feel part of a new family. Know George from his Outback days and he is one fine man that knows how to put together great food with a flare and personable staff. You won't be sorry if you patronize G. Foleys I can assure you! Everything 5*****!
PS We live here and will be back for sure!

Father's Day Dinner

The Prime Rib was excellent. I wish they had it and their chocolate creme brûlée every night.

We really enjoyed our visit. Great menu and excellent service.

Friends and G. Foley's
We have a couple who visit regularly. We are new to town and they had not been here in 30 years. we wanted to take them some place special. We had been before and enjoyed the evening with the live music in the courtyard. The food was great too. Of course our visit occurred during the 4th of July rain event. Not much you can do with 2 feet of rain in a week. We arrived to find our table ready and our waitress Chelsea expecting us. We sat in the patio area and the two people playing music were inside too. It was an intimate setting and very nice. Drinks and wines flowed and all beef was ordered. Everything was prepared perfectly. Chelsea took great care of us. My foodie friends were pleased.

Great, as always
The new menu is great. I love being able to get a lighter meal (handheld) while my husband still gets his steak.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I held my mother's 90th birthday gathering at G. Foley's. It was a very lovely evening. There were only 9 of us, but the service was excellent - very attentive. The food was overall very good. there were a couple of choices that the guests didn't rave about, but all in all it was the perfect place for the birthday "girl" to celebrate. This is definitely a keeper on our list for when we visit next time.

A Great Experience
I went to G.Foleys for a date night, not sure what to expect. I was happily surprised by our experience. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. I got the NY Strip and my girlfriend got the shrimp & grits. Both were great. I definitely plan on going back again.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 2nd trip to G. Foley's. Our first visit was back on New Year's Eve. We were glad to get to experience their everyday menu this time around. We started out by ordering a bottle of the house Merlot, then enjoyed an appetizer of sashimi tuna. Next up came our entrees. I enjoyed a delightful filet mignon cooked perfectly and served with a goat cheese topping, garlic sautéed spinach that was out of this world, and garlic mashed potatoes. My boyfriend had a perfectly cooked ribeye, Asparagus, and a kosher salt encrusted baked potato. But perhaps the best part of the meal was dessert. We had bacon cheesecake. You heard me right, a bacon cheesecake. It was served with a delightful maple syrup topping. Overall a great romantic place!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, as always.
As usual, our meal was very good. Foley's has become a very dependable spot to get good food, service and atmosphere.

Our first time to visit. Everything
Our first time to visit. Everything was outstanding. We sat in the bar area so the noise level was variable. We could probably ask to sit in a quiter area, but it really wasn't bad. Our server was outstanding. She knew the menu extremely well and hepled me with ordering a Gluten Free selection which was outstanding.
An outstanding experience. We will be back.

Great Dining Experience
Finally a place where my wife and I can enjoy each others conversation without the banging noises from the kitchen, or the annoying clapping and singing of a birthday folk song. The atmosphere is awesome and the Food and Service is Superb! Thank you G Foleys for bringing back Pleasurable Fine Dining to Panama City.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Until G. Foleys opened, there were no fine dining restaurants in Panama City - you had to go the Beach. No more. Fabulous food and a great menu. Highly recommended for dinner and special occasions.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere from the time you walk in until you leave was warm, friendly, romantic. Customer service was fantastic! Beautiful inside --- loved that we could talk to each other without feeling like you had to "shout" in order to be heard. The food was SUPERB! Each of us got something different so we could taste each other's choice. The appetizer (spinach dip with fried bow-tie pasta) was amazing! Seafood Gumbo and Lobster Bisque, along with each entree' -- spectacular and both desserts, cheesecake and creme brulee was like no other and "to die for!" HIGHLY RECOMMEND this restaurant! Our first time visit and we wil definitely return!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive but worth it
The food was so very good, the server was attentive and the atmosphere was a bit intimate. There weren't many other people there because we went early, so later it might get noisier. I don't think we will make this a weekly dining place, but definitely a few times a year.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was great - best burger in town and cheese grits to die for - and all in elegance.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've eaten here several times. The food has always been good. We look forward to coming back.

Great for a date
Great place for a date. The hostess and wait staff were courteous and the we were in and out quickly. The live entertainment was just right. I'd go back for sure.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderfull. Everything we had was great. Our waitress was very prompt and accommodating. Couln't hav asked for a better experience. We will be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Prompt and Efficient
Every one and everything was on time and in order. I would highly reccommend this restaurant to anyone.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
While Foley's is usually consistently good, I ordered the pan seared scallop appetizer ($15). There were just a couple of scallops, but that was OK because they were tough and did not taste very good. The rest of my group enjoyed their meals, I just mad a poor, and relatively expensive, choice.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent place to go any
Excellent place to go any time. Best place in Panama City, Florida
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
After feeling snubbed by several people who walked by and ignored us while we were waiting to check in, we ended up with a pleasant experience. I was a bit miffed at first and was not impressed by the staff. Not a good first impression! However, our waitress was very nice so by the time we got our food we were feeling better about it. Overall, it was a good experience and we would go back again, but something has to be done about the hostess station.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best atmosphere in town
I haven't been everywhere, but G Foley's ambiance is second to none of the restaurants In Panama City where I have eaten. It is quiet, the lighting is subdued with electric candles on each table. The wine list was decent, but we chose the house Merlot which was fine. We began the meal with house salads - crisp lettuce, gape tomatoes, diced cucumber, feta cheese, candied pecans, raspberry vinaigrette dressing. For entrees, I had the jambalaya and my wife ordered the chicken foley. The jambalaya had 3 delicious grilled shrimp and a 1/4 bonelss chciken breast on a bed of sauces rice and sausage. The chicken foley was sauteed and glazed, with bacon, provolone and spinach served over fried potatos. Mine portion was small. Hers was huge.
