What You'll Get
In Hans Christian Andersen's Amerika, which served as the inspiration for the eponymous country, the protagonists ate nothing but steak and market-fresh fish. Experience Andersen's version of America with today's Groupon. For $35, you'll get $70 worth of belly-filling American food and drinks from Bailey's American Grille in Seabrook, which recently received the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator for its wine list.
Bailey's modern, chic exterior gives way to a casual and cozy dining room perfect for perusing the dinner menu. Start your meal with flatbreads featuring smoked chicken and four cheese ($10) or southern pulled pork ($11), or opt for the shrimp and grits ($12). Entrees include a wide selection of seafood, steaks, and chops. Sesame-seared ahi with sweet soy sauce and spicy sriracha ($27) brings Asian influence, or swim back to this side of the Brazos River with brewhouse barbecue shrimp ($20). Steaks and chops include an aged 20-oz. bone-in ribeye with Bailey's own Worcestershire sauce and potatoes au gratin ($33), aged 8-oz. filet mignon with a zinfandel reduction and garlic-herb mashed potatoes ($35), and Colorado lamb chops with a truffle sauce, garlic-herb mashed potatoes, and sautéed spinach ($30). Because the restaurant only buys locally raised meat, seafood, and produce, Bailey's will calm the environmentalist nerves of your conscience's conscience.
Sundays at Bailey's boast Citysearch's top-rated brunch, where you can gnash your teeth on classic brunch foods with a twist, such as banana pancakes with bacon and pecan bourbon maple syrup ($10); macadamia-crusted jumbo shrimp with jalapeno and peach preserves and sweet-potato fries ($17); or the Bayside omelette stuffed with seafood, veggies, and grits ($12). Wash it down with a bloody Mary ($8), Kir Royale ($6), dirty blue martini ($10), or bottomless mimosas ($12).
On Tuesday nights, Bailey's recognizes that wine is equally delicious and intoxicating even if you pay half price for it, so stop by on a Tuesday to double your normal wine intake or sate a giant.
Citysearch voters ranked Bailey's American Grille among the best in Houston's fine dining, business dining, and number one for its wine list. Bailey's American Grille's wine list also recently received the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator, and Endeavour Lifestyles has featured the restaurant:
- The menu boasts quality meats, such as a double-cut pork chop, strips and filets. But, the possible rising stars are the unique entrees assembled by [co-owner Brad] Bailey and [Executive Chef Beau] Leacroy…Could Leacroy duplicate the shrimp and grits that [Bailey and his wife] enjoyed as undergraduates at Ole Miss? Ever resourceful, Leacroy assembled the favorite dish with shrimp bought just five minutes away from the restaurant and grits ground fresh in Alvin, Texas. After the tasting, both Bailey and his wife enjoyed the swirling taste of the grits, shrimp, and jalapeno andouille sausage as if they had been transported to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. – Mark Evangelista, Endeavour Lifestyles
- We have dined at Baileys on three occasions so far. In all but the first visit, we have had between 2 and 4 guests. Everyone has been mightly [sic] impressed and wants to return. We have sampled a good many of their dishes, including the special with Buffalo steak. All of the dishes have been served in good time (neither rushing you or making you wait), at the correct temperature, and the taste has been wonderful. – John Walters, Urbanspoon
- Bailey's is one of the few restaurants our area that can consistently nail cooking a fish entree. You cannot go wrong with their fresh catch specials. Someone has had a fish entree at our table nearly every visit and not once have we been dissapointed [sic]. – cldiner, Citysearch
