Visited on a Sunday afternoon with my wife to have lunch. More bars need to be like this one. Simply the best beer bar in Oklahoma. Not too big, very clean and polished looking, quaint and personal atmosphere, long bar with a number of GOOD taps. We ordered the fish and chips and some IPA because we were in our west coast traveling mood, and I have to admit that the fish batter was passable. Even the bartender warned us that the fish and chips wonít come near what you can find at the coast, but we wanted fish to drown in malt vinegar. It was decent enough, but Iíd order something else next time. Beer list was comprehensive for what is available in Oklahoma, including the hard to find 75cl bottles of Duchesse De Bourgogne.

McNellieís is right in downtown Tulsa, and from everything Iíd read, it was the place to go for a beer bar. Looks like I got good advice. The inside is exactly what I want a bar/restaurant to feel like- woody, lived-in, vibrant, and heavy on character without being kitschy or pretentious in any way. The tap list is very strong, with Oklahoma well represented and a number of other great American and foreign brews. There are over 60 taps and almost 300 bottles as of Summer 2010. I started with an Oklahoma-centric beer flight to introduce me to the local stuff. The food is definitely above-average pub grub. The service was very good; we sat at the bar and all servers and bartenders were really friendly and were sure to give opinions about the food and any other questions we had. If I ever make it back to Tulsa, Iím coming back here.

Bar/restaurant with a very large footprint. Most people drinking seemed to be pre-gaming for the AA baseball that was about to start at the stadium nearby. I scored a spot at the bar and had pretty friendly service. Thereís a lot of taps, but plenty of it wonít be interesting to the visiting Ratebeerian. Stuff like Smithwicks and Guinness abounds. However, there was some cool regional stuff on tap. I settled for a draft-only impy stout from Prairie. Prices were fair, though certainly not cheap for the area. Overall, definitely one of the best places in the area.

Nice comfortable English style pub. Service was very good and helpful, didnít talk much beer but she was really busy. Selection was good, with a varied mix from all parts of the world. Food was filling pub food. Decent prices and lots of parking, A winner.

Very nice visit to this establishment. Had several hard to find Oklahoma beers. Service was fast and friendly. Tap selection and bottle selection were both excellent. Prices seemed very fair. Will visit whenever I have the chance.

Nice little place, especially for Tulsa. Probably about 50 or so taps, and maybe a couple hundred bottles, great selection - US micro (including Oklahoma beers) plus imports. Food was basic English/Irish pub fare. Burger I had was good. Bartender doesnít appear to be the most knowledgable about beer, but sheís not doing a bad job. Very decent prices. Will definitely come back if in Tulsa again.

Great selection for Oklahoma. Some unusual stuff that you typically donít see here. Food was pretty good for a bar. Service was good as well. A nice place to drink.

As noted previously, a couple of hundred beers with about 50 on tap. Huge selection but fairly mainstream. A good selection of German and British styles. Food is mostly pub fare but Iíve had no bad food in 3 visits here. Nice bar area and attentive service. Nice place to hang out in Tulsa-off the beaten track if youíre not staying downtown. Recommended.

Great addition for this town. Looks like they really care about bringing some good beer to the plains of NorthEastern Oklahoma. Nice selection- much better then I could have imagined.
