I haven't been to Baileys in a long time because of numerous problems encountered in the past (too many to re-list so go see my prior post: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/399590). However, I was forced to go back by my friends who swore the restaurant is now good.
Oh well, here goes:
1. Salad - each dinner comes with a pretty big salad. I guess that's good, but the waitress never told us we were getting salad so we were not able to pick our choice of dressing, if you can call what they put on the lettuce "dressing." It was bathed in vinegar and that's it. It was inedible.
2. While we were "trying" to eat the salad, our meal came out (but I guess that is a good thing, too, because we didn't have to finish the vinegary salad).
3. BBQ sauce was not on the table as a staple condiment. Are you kidding me? THIS IS (supposed to be) A BBQ PLACE. I asked for some BBQ sauce and luckily they did not charge me for it like they did the last time, but what I was given was (1) the smallest little cup of BBQ sauce and (2) liquid that was pure vinegar with red coloring - inedible.
4. The worst part was the soda. No, it wasn't flat or they didn't promptly fill my order, but when I got my bill, I saw that I was charged each time I asked for some more soda. First of all, the sodas we got came in a little plastic cup filled with ice and at least the waitress could have told us before that there were no refills instead of simply continuing to pad the bill. How cheap can the owner be when he tries to take advantage of customers like that.
Although the food was pretty good (except for the “you've got to be kidding me” salad "dressing" and red colored vinegar disguised as BBQ sauce), I will not be going back there for the principle. That's my only way to voice my displeasure with greedy owners who try to soak its customers for every last dollar.
