This location is only marginally better than the Barrett Pkwy location. The selection is the same: BMC, local micros, the newly available DFH and Victory, some rogues (4 or 5) and a handful of Belgians. Service is about the same, "okay" if you're lucky.
The biggest difference between this store and the other one is cleanliness/clutter. This one is a bit more open and less crowded with crap precariously stacked up and plugged into every nook and hole like the Barrett location. You could still do much, much better, though.

Over all Sherlocks is an ok place for buying liquor but id rather shop at tower they just have an amazing selection. There is a lot of attitude from the staff at sherlocks I dislike. (they seem annoyed when you ask a question)

Theres someone named Treasa who is a manager there thats always rude and makes comments on everyone who comes in to shop (kinda childish) The beer selection is above average at best (all the usual brands) In the Liquor department hey never have any rare bourbons on hand

The one thing that was decent was the wine selection a guy named Bob runs it and theres decent juice there.

What made sherlocks great once was the family type store it used to be

What makes it lousy now is the cheesy remodel that makes it look like a warehouse not a family type store like it was

oh and the parking is usually terible

I have frequented Sherlock's for the past 2 years simply because of the selection and prices as well as the helpful and knowledgeable staff. I believe Bob, the wine manager, is one of the best in the business. He always makes great recommendations and goes above and beyond to track down anything special I may want. The beer selection has grown into a bevvy intriguing craft brews. The beer manager is a nice guy and always helpful. Overall I think this is a great store and the best prices by far for this area. Keep it up guys!

I just moved down the street from this place and I was very impressed on my most recent visit. The Beer Manager (Chad or Brad is his name) was extremely helpful. He went out of his way to make sure that i found what I was looking for and also offered up suggestions on beers that I might like.

The selection is above average compared to local alternatives. They had a pretty good assortment of craft beers and had a few that I couldn't find at any other stores around town.

The prices are reasonable and competitive.

Great selection, better service.

Sherlocks in East Cobb is a place I have been patronizing on and off for years. It's near my parent's house, and across the street from one of my jobs. That and the hours are the two biggest highlights about it. One employee, I believe he's the beer guy, Scott does a good job helping patrons. Besides that, it's a small location with mediocre help and barely decent selection. They did have a few things on the shelf that were rare, but Angel's Share at $15 a 375ml isn't a fast mover. They could use a little help.

This used to be my beer store but only by default. It was close to my house and has an above average selection for the area. I used to think that the service was okay but now that I am forced to rate the service I am forced to ask "what service". I am normally greeted when i walk in the door but that is about it. I have asked questions about where certain liquors are in the store and have gotten straightforward answers but only in the form of a point or a nod in the right direction. In regard to the beers that they carry at the store, the staff does not really even know their own selection. I have asked frequently if they carry certain beers only to have them ask each other either concluding that they dont have it (which in some cases I have later found on the shelves) or that it should be there (when it is nowhere to be found). The last time I went I asked (for the second time) for them to order Victory's Hop Wallop. They said that they would if they could but never did. When i saw it at their other location it became obvious to me that they could order it at the location near me. I asked again and the cashier wrote my request down on the back of the reciept. As I was leaving I watched her crumble it up and throw it away I wont return there to buy beer again which was the only reason i went there in the first place.

This store had quite some stuff that I had not seen around. They had last years' Jolly Pumpkin X-Mas offering as well as La Roja.

I never really had any need for service, but it seemed that everyone else was well taken care of by the employees.

As for the selection, they had a number of brews not offered anywhere else around town as well as Rogue Spirits. I have not seen those around, and would love to have some, but they are too damn expensive. All in all, their beer selection is a little sub-par though as they don't offer a wide variety.

I think their prices are right in line with everyone else in the greater Atlanta area.

Most of the focus of this location is on the wine and liquor; it seems like roughly half the store is devoted to each. There is a cigar section, and then the beers take up roughly half the back wall in the coolers. Your normal bulk packs are the majority, and then a few oddities are in two panels. A few Belgians are also around on two small shelf units. It seems like last time I was there I had more of a selection, and I think prices have increased. They're a little low on stock at the moment right after the holidays, but I was disappointed in the lack of Christmas brews and Winter Ales that were available through them.

Another stop that I wanted to check out to see what I could find, but sadly not too much here though. This place was alright, the other location was literally down the road from my hotel was not as nice, but seemed to have a bit more. The focus here was squarely on the wine list, which was impressive but the beer selection was nothing to write home about. Your standard stuff for the area DFH (had some punkin left), regionals and the more common micros, and a load of BMC. The prices were ok, but the selection was just lacking. Still better then 99% of stores in SC, but for the area, you can do much better. Next please, and back to the traffic.

This Sherlock's location is fairly similiar to the Barrett location but with a slightly smaller space devoted to beer. Nice place for wine but beer seems to get short shrift. The small stock they have is a decent selection and it does seem to rotate out fairly well so everything is fresh.

The service is nothing spectacular but they are friendly and prompt to help which is more than I can say about some of the cashiers at the other location.

You won't find anything mindblowing here but it's the best option for the neightborhood. A slightly above average beer store.
