My husband brought me to G. Foley’s to celebrate my birthday. We absolutely love the restaurant and always have a positive experience. This visit was no different.

I have many food allergies which can make eating at a restaurant dangerous. G. Foley’s is the only local restaurant I trust. They have options that are safe, and always go above and beyond to ensure my meal is prepared safely, verifying ingredients each time, and taking steps to avoid cross contamination. Everyone is point, management, servers, and kitchen as well!

This visit my husband asked if they had any appetizers that would work with my allergies (I’m allergic to those on the menu), the kitchen staff went above and beyond, coming up with a fun option that was safe and delicious! Our server Chris was as gracious as can be when my husband put him on the spot. His service was on point. While all of our servers have taken good care of us during prior visits, I know who we will request for future visits.

The weather was cool enough that we were able to enjoy the lovely patio seating. The area has pleasant shade, a great cross breeze that keeps the area cool without interfering with your hair or meal, and the flowers growing on the fence give both a lovely view and soft scent. Seating inside is also well done, you can’t go wrong whichever you choose.

The food is delicious, the service is fantastic, and the atmosphere is always a pleasure. As always, we had a wonderful experience, and I look forward to coming back soon. I’m so very glad we found G. Foley’s!

I ordered the chicken salad sandwich with sweet potato fries, but the chicken salad tasted spoiled. I took one bite and that was it. I didn’t tell the waitress, because I had met a coworker there and didn’t want to seem rude.

Good was great though the Brussels Sprouts were better the first time I went. Snapper was divine and they were very accommodating to my gluten and dairy allergies.

Excellent service from Jamie, our waiter - professional, friendly, and on point with timing. Tarpon Dock Grouper was outstanding as was the bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer. Ribeye was tender and cooked perfectly. Risotto needed another minute and crab bisque needed more seasoning. Cocktails were excellent. Loved the music playlist, but please turn it down a little. Will be back for that grouper!

Server could not explain the dishes. She said the special was a lamp lolly..asked how many - she said 1…I questioned how big is the lolly…she said it’s very tiny… made no sense —later heard a server telling another table it was a lamb chop and not a lolly.

We order 2 ribeyes - both cooked wrong - 1 was tough and extremely fatty and way undercooked - told the sever and she said that is the way it is supposed to be. The other ribeye was cooked also wrong … not worth the price when food is cooked wrong and would not correct.

When asked for a manager, she did not get anyone -

This was the first time we'd ever been. We did enjoy the food. We ordered the chicken an the wedge salad an both were excellent. The waitress we had was good but it took way too long to get a drink from the bar when we would order.

Greeted and seated right away. Our waitress, Cherry, was outstanding. First time eating here. Absolutely top notch service. Excellent cocktail selection. We were a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meal. Clean and cozy atmosphere. Ideal for a special evening out with quality food. If I had one complaint it was that my entree was not very hot when it came out. I had the chef special which was delicious. Sliced filet steak over mushroom and spinach risotto with goat cheese. Excellent flavor but barely warm. Other than that we did love this place so will definitely be back

Outstanding dining experience. Started with the fried green tomatoes appetizer and it was a big hit. There were 4 of us and we all had different entrees: 2 fish, a chicken and a prime rib special. They were all very good.

Wow, this was quite a find. What a beautiful restaurant. It is very cozy, and beautiful decor. The menu is wonderful, the fried green tomatoes were delicious, along with their sauce and ranch dressing.
My daughter had the chef's feature grouper, we also had the red snapper, both were great. However, I had the Tarpon dock grouper. It truly was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten in my life. They are known for this dish, and you truly should try it. Can't wait to go back next year. Jamie was a Great server, she took really good care of us.

Food was excellent. Disappointed that you were out of Red Snapper. I really wanted snapper but the the red grouper was very good as well. Also, your website menu pricing is off. It says 28 dollars for snapper and grouper. On the actual menu while seated the prices are 30 dollars each. Please update your online pricing. Some others maybe off too. I did think the value at 30 dollars was very reasonable for the quality, portion, presentation, and taste. My wife had the other grouper with risotto. We had the Brussel sprouts and they were amazing. Great overall experience and worth the drive from the beach into town. Also, the wait staff was very responsive and a pleasant experience. Keep up the great work.

Food was good, not great. The wedge salads were good, the Tarpon Dock Grouper was smothered in the orange ginger glaze, had a nice flavor just way too much sauce. Filet was prepared the way that it was ordered. Our server did a nice job.

Ribeye was a little thin for my liking. I believe a thicker cut would have cooked up much better.

Greeted and seated immediately. Requested a table in a quiet area and we were shown to an intimate table in an atrium. We enjoyed the charcuterie board.
Husband ordered the rib eye that came with delicious, roasted vegetables, crisp and fresh. The steak was ginormous and I served was easily enough for 2. The 1/2 he took home was 13oz of deliciousness. I reheated it in hot cast iron with butter and served it with eggs for his bkfst.
I ordered the Tarpon Dock macadamia crusted grouper and it too, was easily enough for 2. It was prepared perfectly, and was delicious! Served atop a creamy risotto.
Our waitress was efficient and nice but never introduced herself.
We had a great experience and celebrated our 39th anniversary. We'll be back!!

The food was excellent. Took longer to get our food than we thought it should have been but is was very good. The prices are a little high or we would go back more often. The server did an outstanding job. She took good care of us and checked back often to make sure we had everthing we needed. Overall a good experience.

Never having been to this restaurant before, we spent our 13th anniversary with them last early evening. (I made reservations several weeks ago so we were able to stop there for an early dinner on the way home from the airport from an out-of-town trip.)

The service was wonderful. Our waiter paid every attention to detail and was very knowledgeable. The food was delicious.. The grouper was cooked to perfection. They are he tuna appetizer and served on a bed of fresh shredded broccoli salad that I wish they would put on their menu as a side dish. It is absolutely delicious. And the ambience was perfect. We sat on their enclosed porch which was a lovely way to enjoy their outdoor greenery during a thunderstorm! Their outdoor patio looked really inviting but it just wasn’t going to work yesterday!

Yes, we will go again.
