Great happy hour. Lots of fun to just relax and have a few (cheap!) drinks.

Why people like Sherlock's is beyond me. Maybe I'd like it more if I was a guy. Never been to other locations, but the Addison branch is always crowded. The food is barely passable. It's basic bar food, which would be ok if it was better. Lots of TVs everywhere, so you can be distracted from the food by a game. Bands play here too, but I've yet to see a good one. Maybe I should just stay away!

Crappy Food, Great People felt like I was in a strip club, picking out what ever piece of meat for the night, only thing it's not the food or drink that cost you out the whoo hoo, it's the meat! Need a date? Take your Plat. Visa!

Sheeze! All these negative nellies on this site! Sherlocks is a 21 to 30 crowd and is a bar. Plain and simple. You go to bars to hook up with others. Most of the bands here are cover bands and are GREAT! They are always changing the bands every week, so you get a variety. Show me one other place that doesn't charge cover, doesn't overprice their drinks and has a variety of entertainment in the Dallas area. The ONLY negative is the smoke. I am not a smoker, but after leaving that place everytime, I feel like I need a good cardiologist or lung doctor to give me an exam!

This is the sleaziest sports bar I have ever been to. Went there for a birthday celebration and 2 people in our group felt like someone spiked there drinks. One of them was attacked in the parking lot and (when reported) management doesn't care that this is going on. If you want a strip bar atmosphere and to lower your standards, come to this bar, apparently "anything" goes. I will not be going back. Big disappointment.

I hate this place. They make me feel like a beligerant drunk every time I go there and I'm the opposite of that. I've been to Sherlock's about three times, and the last two were surealistically negative. It seemed like a cool place after the first time because they had cheap hamburgers and $2 beers on Mondays, but the last two times I went there blew my mind with how illogically disrespectful they were to my friend and I.

First Incident: I went to Sherlock's with my female friend after having about six beers each at Flying Saucer over the course of about six hours because we were taking our time working on the computer. When we ordered a seventh beer the waitress informed us that they are only allowed to serve six beers per person, so we decided to have dinner and another couple of beers at Sherlock's. When we got to Sherlock's we weren't anywhere near drunk, and ordered a meal and two beers each over the course of a couple of hours. During this time I told our waitress that she looked like Kate Middleton and she said that she didn't; which makes sense as she is part Hispanic. My friend agreed with her and we had a friendly little argument about it that I noticed the waitress was listening to as she walked by with her trainee in tow. I liken people's appearances to the famous all the time, but the waitress must have thought that I said that because I was drunk, which I was nowhere near. I could have easily passed a DUI test and was completely calm. A few moments later my friend went to the rest room, and as I was sitting on the patio I made eye contact with the waitress as she was waking inside, and she shot me this creepy evil look that said, "I've got you". I remember getting a chill up my spine when I saw her look at me like that, but I shook it off as perhaps she being flattered that I likened her to a beautiful woman. A few moments later after my friend returned I ordered another beer and the waitress told me that she thought I was too drunk to order another beer. This was shocking to me as nobody had every told me that before, and I felt pretty much sober, as anybody would be after taking about eight hours to drink as many beers. I was offended that she said that to me, so I paid the bill without a tip and wrote that we had horrible service and left as quickly as we could in disgust. When we got to the car I looked at my bill to confirm that I had only two beers and try to contemplate how she could justify accusing me of being too drunk for another beer, and noticed that she had charged us for four beers each. At this moment I put one and one together and figured that was why she gave me that creepy look. She must have figured that I was too drunk to notice her overcharging me, and that if she had told me beforehand that I was too drunk for another beer, the management would side with her instead of me if I challenged her on how many beers I had. I meant to call Sherlock's, but I took too long and my lock was cut at the gym and my wallet (which had the receipt with her name on it) was stolen before I got around to calling the bar, so I decided to just let it slide and make sure to never go back there again.

Second Incident: The LAST time I will ever be in Sherlock's was last night with the same friend. We started out the night by sharing a bottle of wine over a couple of hours, and then got one beer each and nachos at Flying Saucer. Then my friend said she wanted to go to Sherlock's. I told her I didn't want to and reminded her of what happened the last time we were there, but she insisted. She wasn't as angry about it as I, probably because she wasn't the one who was accused of being too drunk for another beer. We got a couple beers with cash at the bar and then sat down. We wanted to order some nachos so we tried to flag a couple of Mexican busers, but they were too engaged in conversation with each other, and it seemed like they were trying to ignore us as my friend had stood up and was waving at them to get their attention. We could have stood up and talked to a waitress, but we were feeling chatty and I wanted to speak some spanish with them. After the waitress came and we discussed the price of nachos $8.50, and my friend mentioned how the busers were trying to ignore us and that it would have been more professional for them to be more attentive. The waitress said they are busers and that's not their job, so I told her that I wanted to speak Spanish with them but it wasn't a big deal. My friend had worked as a waitress at a few different places during college and asked to speak to the manager to suggest to to tell the busers to be more attentive, and I also took the opportunity to mention the incident that happened a couple months ago and wanted to talk about that too. To my remark she said the waitress probably doesn't even work there anymore because the turnover rate there is so high. A few moments later, after I was about half way through my beer, a short overweight blonde woman walked up to us and sort of rudely said, "What's going on?" My friend, in a VERY friendly chatty way, as she is a very kind, benign and friendly person, made the suggestion about the busers attentiveness. My friend acknowledged that it was trivial and was a little drunk, but just wanted to help out with a friendly suggestion. To our shock the manager said that she wan't going to blame her busers for anything and that my friend was too drunk for another beer and too drunk to drive and asked me if I was too drunk to drive too or else she would call us a cab, and we needed to leave immediately. I calmy told her I was fine to drive. I didn't mention that my friend was too, which she was, but asked if it was OK if we stayed to finish our beers, as I was only half way through mine, and she said no. We immediately got up to leave and she followed us out. I turned into another bar, or a different part of the same bar, and walked down to the end to find there was no exit there and turned around and walked back to see that she was standing there scowling at me, and followed us out, and actually left the bar and stood on the top of the stairs menacingly glaring at us as we walked down the side walk like we were a couple of hooligans. Perhaps one reason she gave us that attitude was because we both were dressed down. My friend had red sweat pants on and I had running shorts on top of long underwear, and I have long hair and a big beard. We never dress like that and only did because we went out on a whim. Sherlock's seems like a laid back place by appearance though, so this is just an afterthought.

I have never been told that I was too drunk for another beer, except for the last two times I went to Sherlock's, and I had never been overcharged for a beer. The first incident was passable because I'm the type of person who values forgetting and forgiving, but what happened last night was definitely infuriating enough for me to vent with a nice, long letter to be posted in as many review sites as I can find, as well as email it to all the Sherlock's locations.

What that manager did last night was very stupid. She could have just said "Good idea, thanks," and left it at that, but she had to accuse us of being drunks and kick us out before being allowed even finish our beer, AND escort us out and glare at us as though we were a couple of hooligans, thusly causing me to write this review to be posted all over the internet. Nice job.

I've read the other reviews of this place, at was interested to notice that being ripped off is a common occurrence at Sherlock's. Apparently Sherlock's has lot's of techniques to rip people off. I read a post where someone forgot to sign for their bill, so Sherlock's took the liberty to charge the %15 gratuity as they warn on the menu, and then added another $60 bucks to the tab. I read one review where a patron was pinned to the ground and punched by a manager just because he called him a name, even though there were four police officers outside who could have handled it if he was causing problems like they claim, and this manager refused to give his name when asked. This leads me to believe that Sherlock's is some kind of bizarre mafioso type place that only really wants to serve regulars who they know, and kick everybody else out, even if it hurts business. Sherlock's must be owned by some multi-millionaire who makes his money somewhere else, and instructs his staff of all the ways abuse and rob the customers as some kind of weird game, and only hires people who comply, or agree with that way to do business. I guess that is why the turn over rate is so fast there. I'm not the kind of person who gets drunk and needs to get kicked out of bars by angry managers, much less refused service. I read in the reviews that Sherlock's served someone who ended up causing a wreck or something, so maybe they are extra paranoid, but there has to be common sense if you expect to stay in business. I'm not just writing this review out of anger, but I'd like for people who manage that place to think about the best way to do business. Bars who make everybody angry with them eventually go out of business. I saw on the front that they've been in business since 1977, and I'm baffled how a business like this could exist for that long. This whole experience has been very bizarre and disheartening for me, and Sherlock's can be sure that I will definitely steer clear of this place from now on, so they don't have to worry about that. My friend is sure to write a similar review. I don't want a reply from them as I know by now that they will just accuse me of being some crazy vendictive drunk. So be it. I know who I am.

I'm certain I've had more than six beers at The Saucer before, so either it's a new policy, or they were just annoyed that you were tying up a table for six hours and nursing one beer per hour.
