Today, Bailey's Restaurant Building still stands strong within the historic Exchange District at 185 Lombard Avenue. Built in 1900 by banker W.F. Alloway, this building has been home to a parade of business tenants including the Manitoba Hospital Commission, Manitoba Health Services and even Great West Life until it was finally converted into a restaurant in 1971. Known then as Oliver's Restaurant and the Old Bailey's Lounge, some say its hospitable architecture attracted the attention of the Manitoba's early Progressive Conservative Party and served as its club. Here, members could relax, enjoy fellowship and contemplate the Party's future. Today, century-old ghosts may still cross the threshold of Bailey's stately oak doors and mingle with its friendly staff and guests. They, like you, are infinitely welcome, since even after almost four decades, Bailey's management and staff sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve you. more...

Experienced during Dine About Winnipeg

Tried Bailey's for the first time during Dine About Winnipeg 2011. I had been warned that, in previous years, Dine About participants had felt rushed to finish and leave; the feeling was that the restaurant wanted to "make room for higher-paying patrons". Despite this, I didn't want to be biased, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. Seeing the older, formal décor (coats of arms along the dark wood wall?!), I felt a little underdressed... but many people around me were dressed VERY casually (maybe an artifact of Dine About?). I ordered the California mixed greens with popyseed dressing, strawberries, mandarins, and blueberries, which was fine (though they went quite heavy on the thick creamy dressing). My entrée was the New York Steak Royal stuffed with crab and topped with béarnaise. I found the steak a little tough (despite ordering medium-rare), and the crab seemed like it came from a can. The mixed vegetables and potatoes served alongside were quite tasty. Dessert was a chocolate cup with strawberries in Cointreau, with "crème Anglaise" (it was definitely whipped cream) and caramel and raspberry coulis. This was my favourite part; the presentation was stunning. Our server was nice, but not very present... we ran out of water multiple times, waiting for him to refill it for us. Overall, the meal was nice... but it didn't really stand out in my mind as a memorable meal. I may return to try the standard menu, which looked tasty and apparently garnered good reviews (above).

Greatest dining in 30 years

Went there wondering. but no more! The service, food. atmosphere was fantastic. We find it hard to get all three in recent years, but Baileys outdid themselves! our waitress "Angel". truly was. We started with a liter of their house wine, escargot and a rib starter. Great! the salad was fresh crisp excellent. I had the Steak garlic prawn combo and my wife had the shrimp dinner. BOTH WERE EXCELLENT. The service was impecable and the atmosphere great. If there was a 6 Star dining place this would be it. THANKS BAILEYS FOR A GREAT EVENING
