Love the bar. I have gone here multiple times and recommend it if you are in the area for business. Food is good pub fair and the selection of beer and cocktails is pretty good. Food won't win any rewards but it's worth the price. Good for game days or meet and greets.

This place was awesome they have three giant rooms and always showed the UFC fights, Wrestling and games however for some reason it shut down which was a shocker. I ate here several years ago but the time thing doesn't go back that far. Just wanted everyone to know its shut down.

I only go to this place because its close to where my friends work and I enjoy having a beer with them. I 'd call it generally dirty with sticky tables, marginal food and OK draft beer. Beyond that look elsewhere.

Went to this place, thinking this was an Irish Pub. Located in Crystal City Arlington VA. Also known as fox and hound on the web. Have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the pub area. Come to find out the first place you walk into is a smoking area. Seems to be a busy area, went... More

Bailey's on Tuesday night -- what an experience. Average dinner and $3 beer all night enjoying time with some college classmates. When the hockey game came on, the volume went from 0 to high. One of my friends asked the waiter to turn the volume down, the hockey game was not on yet and it was so loud. A few... More

Stopped at this place on a Thursday evening. To be fair, it was not a game day. There was a priveate party going on at a separate room, where all the action was concentrated. I stayed at the non-smoking side of the pub where there was noting going on. The smoking side had more people and more to see/do. Had... More

The location appears to be a meeting spot for singles. It is on the second floor and has a hard to find entry from street level. Food was prompt and tasty. The menu included salads, sandwiches and full meals. The only negative was the need to pass through the smokey bar area to get to the dining room.

We found the food at Bailey’s above average. The service was also prompt. Our only complaint was that Virginia is behind the times smoking wise. If you don’t want to inhale smoke, you are delegated to a back eating area.

My family and I stopped in here for dinner after a long day of hopping museums and we wished instead we'd gone somewhere else. The service was terrible as there was only one waiter handling 7-8 tables that had all recently say down despite there being several other wait staff working. By the time we got a chance to order...
