We had the opportunity to visit Bailey's Backyard on Friday September 12th 2014 for the first time. We found the recommendations on Trip Advisor first of course. We were delighted to discover the excellent food that is all locally sourced. The Chef is obviously paying very close attention to detail as every dish we had was just a little more... More

Re-visited after a period of time and learning about their new menu. Lunch time and not crowded. Service was immediate and pleasant. Variety was sufficient for lunch time, whether for a full meal or sandwich/burger. The 50-50 burger was delicious and served just as I requested. The lobster/bacon sandwich was stuffed and tasty. Leave room for sinful desserts!

Came to Ridgefield for a concert. We stopped into Bailey's for a quick meal. Sal is a great host, his team took great care of us, the cornbread and honey & fried green tomatoes were tremendous and tried the 50-50 burger, great too! We'll be back - thanks!

My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday night. I had a beet + goat cheese salad to start and then salmon, while my husband had scallops to start and then paella. Everything was delicious and the service was great (attentive but not intrusive). We will definitely be back!

Maybe it was a little ambiance, maybe the service, maybe the food...but I found all of it to be fantastic! It was a delightful lunch, certainly one of the better ones in recent memory. The grilled vegetable panini was large and delicious, the au jus sandwich was well liked, and the ice tea fresh brewed. The server was really friendly,... More

Been to Bailey's quite a few times over the years and I must say that our most recent visit was exceptional. The farm to table concept prepared by a CIA trained chef is exactly what this community needed. Most of the restaurants in Ridgefield are generally OK, but the food preparation and bountiful flavors at Bailey's was more akin to... More

If you haven't been to Bailey's in a while you will be in for a treat/surprise. Farm to table menus seem to be the rage in leading restaurants and Bailey's has joined the club....with positive results. The menu is flexible depending on season and availability and the chef is not afraid to take risks. If you are a fan of... More

The meal was very good. One of the better I've had in Ridgefield in a while, but the prices are extremely high. Dinner for 2 was almost $100 when everything was tallied up, so it's not a place that I'd go to more than a couple of times per year. But they do a good job. The place is absolutely... More

I have been frequenting this place for some time now. The fresh combination of delightful fresh foods amazes me each time. Obviously the winter is a challenge for fresh produce but they consistently do the best with what is available. The spring/summer/fall menus are the best in town. Local produce of the freshest available is the norm here. Consistently flavorful.... More

My husband and I had such a pleasant meal at Baileys Backyard. I was a bit nervouse bringing him here as my husband is very picky about his food. In that he is truly a meat and potatoe man. Vegetables beside brocolli hardly ever pass his lips. But on seeing the menu even he was hard to chose between all... More
