Incident 1: I ordered a beer and the waitress told me that she thought I was too drunk to order another. I'd never heard that before and wasn't drunk. 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.
Incident 2: Got a beer each with cash at the bar and then sat down. Told the waitress about how the bussers were trying to ignore us and that it would have been more professional for them to be more attentive. The waitress said they are bussers 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 and wanted to speak to the manager to suggest to to tell the bussers 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. Later a woman rudely said, "What's going on?" We made the suggestion about the bussers 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 bussers 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.
Good Times – This place is awesome. Came here for the 1st time with co-workers over a year ago, n I'm now a faithful patron. Friendly wait staff, great bartenders, and the drinks are never watered down. My waitress knows my name, my fiance's name, what we drink, and is always sociable. I've put a lot of my friends onto this place, and we go regularly. Matter of fact, I'm writing this review on my way to pick one up so we can go there now. If you had a bad experience here, id reccomend giving it another shot. The crowd is nice, and mature, and friendly also. If you only have bad things to say about this place, you may have gone to the wrong one. SHERLOCKS RULES!!!!
Good solid bar – For the longest time it seemed like Sherlocks was the only option in the area. It is a good bar all around. Nothing really special about it, but they do have good crowds and decent live music at times. It has a little character to it and I like it more than some of the restaurant bars in the area or the other choice which is a few bars that just seem to be trying too hard.
I get robbed and you call the cops on me? Are you kidding me?!!! – I used to love this bar, I always had a great time and great service. Sunday night though all that changed. My girlfriend and I both got our jackets stolen off of our table. A guy was walking by with my girlfriends jacket in his hand when I said something about it and grabbed it to look at it, he pushed me off and left. It was definitely her jacket. The managers then treated me like I was in the wrong while this guy got away scott free. I was very upset and was trying to talk to them and instead of taking care of a good customer and listening to what I was saying they kicked me out and called the cops while the thieves got away with our things. I am very insulted and embarrassed by the way that I was treated by people I have been supporting for quite some time. Any place that treats good customers like criminals and criminals like saints is not a place I would recommend to anyone.
One of the best places in the US to play Bar-Pool – This Sherlock's Baker St. Pub has officially been named one the TOP 10 best places in all of North America to play "Bar Pool". This distinction was awarded in 2008 by www.Bar-Pool. com -- the only website dedicated to identifying where to play pool in bars, tavern and pubs (not pool halls). This award was given based on several criteria: 1) two or more pool tables which are coin-operated (so you can challenge), 2) a fair numbers of players on any given night, 3) the skill level of the players, and 4) a willingness by the players to take on challengers -- to mix it up. Sherlock's Baker St. Pub scores high on all these criteria. Bar-Pool. com can tell you where to play bar pool in most major cities in the US and Canada, and seeks YOUR input -- tell us where you like to play.
Why all the haters? – Why is everyone slamming my neighborhood happy hour joint? My co-workers and I have standing happy hour date every Thursday at Sherlock's. Wouldn't change locations for the world. We always get great service. Huh, maybe because we are nice? I was here last Saturday ( a little too late) and had a blast with the band. Have no idea who it was, but who cares? Good drinks, good friends and good music. AND - no freakin' cover!
Stay far away – This place is really bad due to horrible management, horrible bartenders, and extremely horrible door guys. The crowd here is very anti-social as well. The crowd they draw and the personnel they hire to run the place are terrible. I now truly understand where the term "north dallas cheese" came from.
this place has the worst bartenders and management! – I do believe they serve the beer with water! the shots are not the brands you ask for unless you stand in front of them and watch them poor... i also have noticed that hot chicks like myself are allowed to drink till we can no longer walk, but the ugly or men get arrested after one too many, therefor i am sure there will soon be a discrimination suit... but who cares- lots of trashy super drunk chicks, and lots of gay broke dudes!!! how much more fun can it be...oooh! watch out for the slanted cops in the addison area! lisa
best harassment bar around! just ask for a drink, if you look different from the glam crowd they will say your drunk and you can't have a drink, even if you have not had a drink.... – do not go here if you want to have just a drink. either get drunk and get kicked out or don't drink and still get kicked out for the fact other people around might be drunk! this is the most terrible excuse for a bar that makes money hand over fist for meat marketry than anyone has seen, but beware the " NO DRINK " must "BE DRUNK", policy that follows..... you will be treated like trash with sherlock's management and addison cops for no absolute reason!!! without any drink in your system! come sober, do not order food, but be with friends who enjoy, and be considered a convict!! what better way to end a night than be hauled off to jail for no reason but being silly around other people!!! as far as i know it is still legal to be sober!!
Cozy British pub in Addison offers daily drink specials, plus rides to and from Ameriquest Field on game day. – In Short
The wooden tables, chairs and floor, mixed with the beer and rugby memoribilia on the light walls and the English phone booth, give the flavor of a British pub. The large dining room area has various Great Britain flags hanging from the ceiling. The darker billiard room features six well-maintained tables, a wall of dart boards, plus a foosball table. There's live music nightly. The menu is above-average pub fare, including burgers, sandwiches, tacos.
