McNellie’s is the beerpub to go to in Tulsa, OK. There is no other competiton if a well-rounded beer drinking evening is what you want. The food menu is good. Pub style munchable’s like burgers, chips and salsa, etc. They also have cheese or fruit trays available from time to time. Yes, as it has been stated in several other reviews, the sweet potato fries are indeed quite tasty. The beer menu is where they truly shine, though. It can almost be said that if it is available in Oklahoma, then it’s available here. I’ve never noticed more than an item or two at a time that wasn’t on the menu here. About 60 tap selections available and almost four(4) times that in bottles or cans. If you’re in Tulsa for life or just passing through, you owe it to yourself to check this place out.

Best beer bar in Oklahoma. Largest selection. 50 taps, another 200 or so bottles. Sometimes they will be out of something, but that’s Oklahoma for you. Food is great. Love the burgers, sweet potato fries, and artichoke dip. Service can be spotty.

We were in Tulsa for Oktobefest last weekend and wound up here after the event closed down. This bar was great. A wonderful selection of beer and a very friendly staff. We made a point to go back the next night. Prices weren’t bad either.

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 I’ve 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 you’re not staying downtown. Recommended.

Hundreds of beers, many on tap. Often very busy and service can be hit or miss. Food is typical pub fare, but quite acceptable. Great beer specials... Last month they had pints of Shakespeare Stout for like 2.50, which is cheaper than I can get it at the store.

Great selection for Oklahoma. Some unusual stuff that you typically don’t see here. Food was pretty good for a bar. Service was good as well. A nice place to drink.

Great selection for Tulsa. Pretty good atmosphere, nice place to just hang out with the guys. The food is nothing special and the wait staff is generic, but it is a good place to go try some new beers.

Found this during a business trip. They didn’t have a couple of things the website said they had, but they also had stuff I had not seen in Oklahoma City. The $3 burger was tasty and cheap. My only complaint was the coed sitting next to me who drenched herself in perfume making it hard to detect aromas until she noticed my wedding ring and moved on.....

A nice pub in Downtown Tulsa; very popular on Wednesday nights with University of Tulsa students due to $3 burger specials. Otherwise, rather pricy, especially for food; however, the sweet potato fries are unusually good. The beer selection approaches legendary; in all probability, if it’s availible in this part of the country (no Fat Tire), they have it. Service is somewhat lacking, however. Slow seems to be the word of the day and botched drink orders (especially for mixed drinks) are a tad too common. However, if you simply stick to beer and fries, you should have a most plesent experience. A good place to kill a night.

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 won’t come near what you can find at the coast, but we wanted fish to drown in malt vinegar. It was decent enough, but I’d 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.
