g. Foley’s in Panama City, Florida is where the locals go for casual fine dining.
g. Foley’s might be one of the best-kept secrets in Panama City. Located in a non-ostentatious building on West 23rd Street, it is the spot where locals go for fresh farm-to-table food.
Inside Dining Area
After guests enter the building, they can choose to dine in one of the inside dining areas, at the bar, or outside on the patio. If the weather is nice, I recommend dining outside on the patio, especially when they have live music. (Check the bottom of their web page for weekly event specials.)

The Food at g. Foley’s
g. Foley’s serves lunch and dinner and offers a Happy Hour Menu from 4:30-6:00 pm.
TUNA DIP With Pickled Jalapenos, Hot Sauce Infused Grape Tomato, and Toast Points
The tuna dip on toast points topped with tomatoes and jalapenos is amazing, and that is not something that I would normally say about tuna.
LUMP CRAB HUSH PUPPIES – Sweet Corn & Alabama Lump Crab Hush Puppies with Green Goddess Dressing
The Lump Crab Hush Puppies are listed on the dinner menu as an appetizer, but they are hardy enough to be a meal. They are crispy on the outside and the crab and corn on the inside were cooked perfectly.
LOBSTER BISQUE – Aged Sherry Vinegar, Fine Herbs, and Puff Pastry
8oz FILET MIGNON – With Cowboy Home Fries, Arugula, and Cane Syrup Demi
Swordfish and Roasted Potatoes
SHRIMP & GRITS – Gulf of Mexico Shrimp & Grits with Florida Rice Grits, Tasso, and Grape Tomato Relish
You can’t go to Panama City without indulging in seafood. This beautifully prepared dish is a favorite among g. Foley’s patrons. (g. Foley’s is listed in the top 20 restaurants to dine in Panama City according to TripAdvisor.com reviewers.)
