“Average Food, Good Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for an early light supper on a week night when we were driving thru the Poconos. We were greeted by a very friendly man at the front desk and shown immediately to a booth.
This restaurant is in a large old home. It has a dark, dated interior but it seemed clean.
Our server Ryan was very attentive and our meal was promptly prepared and served. Everything was as we ordered.
It was served hot and the servings weren't too large. The food was satisfactory--tasty but not outstanding.
I wouldn't take someone there for a special occasion or go out of my way to return there but I wouldn't say that I would never eat there again. It was a good alternative to franchise restaurants.

“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The table was sticky, the food was poor quality and badly prepared, this steakhouse sold mostly seafood, and the service was painfully slow. It is still the fourth best place to eat in the Poconos.

“Two Bailey's in Mount Pocono?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at Bailey's and contrary to other reviewers, we had a great experience. We walked in and were seated in less than 60 seconds by the Manager, who was warm and friendly. He warned us about a slight trip hazard when walking to the buffet (which we didn't use) and he also mentioned that the floors in an adjacent room were going to be cleaned, and he would close two sets of doors, but he would move us immediately if we were bothered by the noise, but we couldn't hear or see the work being done, so we stayed at our original table.
The waiter, Bart, introduced himself about 2 minutes after the Manager left and took our drink orders. By the time he returned with the drinks and great bread, we had decided what to order, and after answering a couple of our questions about the meal choice, Bart took our order to the kitchen.
The seafood soup was first and was great, followed by caesar salads, then the entrée, Crab Key Chicken. We couldn't say a bad word about any of the food or the service.
Reviews often ask if one would return to a particular hotel or restaurant. Would we return? Yes and No. The only reason I say No, is that there are so many other good eating establishments in the area that I'd like to try them all. But I wouldn't have a problem returning to Bailey's for another fine meal. Thanks Bart!

“Best food we had while in the Poconos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stopped here the last night we were in the Poconos.. Were a bit timid because we had been subjected to some awful food earlier in the vacation. We had decided to stick with chain fast food places since they have to taste the same nationwide and the risk of being unpleasantly surprised was slim. Thankfully this one turned out to be pretty good. The atmosphere is old and musky which is fine. Our favorite bar back home is old and musky so i wasn't too worried about that. Besides, i go to restaurants to eat food not to rave about the decor and ambiance. Prices were awesome and the portions were insanely large. I wouldn't say it was the best quality food i ever had but for the cost and the amount you end up with, it's a major deal. Will definitely come again if we're in the area.
