Hook & Cook


Panama City's proximity to the Gulf of Mexico provides a year-around supply of fresh-caught seafood. "Hook and Cook" is a unique way for visitors to enjoy it. Spend the day with one of Panama City's experienced boat captains on a guided fishing expedition. You'll love the excitement of hooking one of the Gulf Coast's many popular varieties of seafood, but what you'll love even more is enjoying your fresh catch for dinner.

Upon docking, a local chef expertly cleans and prepares your bounty for a beautiful meal at one of Panama City's fine restaurants. What could be better? All the fun of fishing with none of the mess. Learn more about booking a guided fishing tour in Panama City.


  Falling for the food at g. Foley's  

If you're a "foodie" who loves the fleeting flavors of fall, then you must try the pumpkin grits at Panama City's g. Foley's. Winner of the 2015 OpenTable Diner's Choice Award and recognized this year by TripAdvisor with its Certificate of Excellence, g. Foley's cuisine is inspired by the local bounty of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and, of course, seafood.

The pumpkin-flavored grits are just one of the many outstanding fall dishes you'll enjoy at this local favorite. Their happy hour is equally popular, starting at 4:30 p.m. every Monday through Saturday. In addition, several times a month g. Foley's hosts local musicians. Learn more about g. Foley's and Panama City's culinary landscape, a place "fit for foodies."
