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.

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.

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.

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.

Only had one night in Tulsa...needed me some good local beers...especially Prairie Artisan...fortunately found this place on Rate Beer. As soon as I sat down I had a flight of all Prairie Artisan beers...which included my first taste ever of Prairie Bomb...amazing beer! I also got to try a nice selection of other OK and surrounding area local craftbeers. The people here were very friendly and helpful. The food was good enough...not amazing or anything...but I came for the beer...and enjoyed the atmosphere and staff as well. Good choice when in Tulsa.

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.

bleeng  (152) Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas | August 9, 2007| Updated June 14, 2011
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 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.

Came here on a short trip to Tulsa. It was the morning of a road race and I expected to wait. Only had to wait about 5 minutes, despite the place being packed. Food came very quickly and was really good. I had a patty melt which was great and my wife had a breakfast burrito which was just OK. Beer selection was good, but most things were just the normal things available anywhere. Got a flight of OK beers and three were new, which was nice. Comfortable place, though a bit crowded. Overall, very much worth a stop if you are in Tulsa.
