This is review is based on two past experiences at both the Addison and Arlington Sherlock's. As mentioned below these are pick up bars. And if you like fighting for drinks, dancing in cramped spots, and poor service this is your place. I don't think there should be any comparison to the Flying Saucer, a short walk away. Though I do remember a step above your typical BMC bar selection, (think Chimey, Stella, etc,) this place wouldn't go down in my book as a beer bar, and I would be disappointed if I went into this place thinking such.

Let's be clear: this is a pick up joint. Beer is not on the minds of the proprietors from what I can tell. The restaurant is small compared to the large club section, two-table pool room and patio with metal furniture.

The only reason to go here is to dance, drink (mixed drinks, malternatives, or BMC), and party. Nothing wrong with these activities, but if it is good beer or even a beer appreciative atmosphere you seek, go elsewhere, like right across the street to the Flying Saucer.

This place is not recommended as a remotely decent beer bar.

This was one of those places everyone hits when they start to hit the Bar Scene in Dallas. Very nice place and some interesting decor. More of a trendy Irish pub type place. It is a meat market though and most people aren't here to chill and have a brew. Always busy so service can be a crap-shoot. Parking also sucks and valets will laugh at your bucket of bolts. No wonder when all you see in front of this place are Benzes and Beemers with an occasional exotic thrown in for fun. Bring your A-game.

This is a decent place in Addision right across the street from the Flying Saucer. They tend to compete with one another. Sherlock's started "big beer" night, which got you a beer served in a hefe glass for the price of a pint. Since it was on Wednesday's, the Saucer now does this before "brewery night" begins.

As for the bar itself, nice atmosphere, a lot of wood, average beer selection, pool tables, darts. Has always been packed when I've gone, but the only negative is the ventilation. Last time I went, the ventilation was so bad that the smoke dominated the room like no other bar I've been in.

That aside it's a nice place, a lot of's been a while since I've gone, so if airflow still has issues probably best to go in spring or fall when they might have the windows open.
