This is a great place in Downtown Tulsa on the Northend of Downtown. They have like 100 different types of beer. Also known for there burgers. On Wednesday you can get a Burger & Fries $3. Upstairs they have a large seating area and pool tables.

McNellie's is what I consider to be a true pub...good food and lots of beer! The environment is friendly, simple and "old world" comfy!!

Typical pub grub with a huge assortment of beers, both on tap and in bottles or cans. Portions were adequate but nothing outstanding. Service was very good. Had better, had worse.

I go to Tulsa every year with a group of women for the Tulsa Run. Dinner at McNellie's has become tradition for us. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the food and drinks are even better. Everything on the menu is fantastic - you can't go wrong.

When my host said an Irish pub, I knew that I wanted potato leek soup and that is what I ordered. It was bland, on the cool side and the flavor was salt. I shared a club sandwich with my sister, so that sustained me after I deconstructed it. Are club sandwiches really made with 3 slices of bread anymore?... More

I've tried this place several times now, hoping it would strike a chord with me. It is very popular and I just can't figure out why. It's cool building in a trendy area, but the food isn't fantastic. It's not terrible, but not fantastic. I just haven't figured out the appeal. Give it a shot, you might love it.

Atmosphere is bar/restaurant. The bartender was very nice and attentive. She recommended several beers. Large beer selection. I had the chili to see if I wanted dinner here. It was very watered down. So I didn't eat anything else. I gave a 4 cause of the beer selection and service from the bartender.

As a fan of Wednesday Burger Night, I was disappointed in my last visit. The burger came out dry and overcooked, though I specifically asked for a pink center, the bun was dry and crumbly, and the side of sweet potato fries were cold. I can't attribute the decline to them being swamped, because it seemed to be lighter traffic... More

McNellie's has separate non smoking and smoking areas, although the smoking area has more entertaining areas for darts and shuffleboard that the non-smoking section omits. I don't know of another place in town that offers such an extensive beer selection. This place stays full so if you have a big group you might want to call ahead for prompt seating.... More

First time going. We went for drinks and dinner before a concert at the BOK Center. Easy parking and we were seated quickly. Food was delicious and the drink menu is incredible. Will probably make it a tradition for the future concerts in Tulsa.
