If you're a beer advocate visiting Tulsa, your best bet for beer is McNellies. The downstairs is non-smoking and if you want to smoke you have to go upstairs. The atmosphere varies from families, beer advocate, to partiers.

Beer - They have a new menu every month that stays mostly stays the same except for the draught selection and a few bottle versions. The beer selection is excellent and they have several "flights" and break them up by the country that the beer was brewed. They are very seasonal in their offerings and provide plenty of local brews as well. Some notable beers they've had on tap when I've been there are St. Bernardus Abt 12 and Hennepin. The selection is the best in Tulsa as far as I have seen.

Cask - They have 2 local Beers on cask which typically consist of "Marshall-McNellies Pub Ale & Marshall Atlas IPA" Both are fantastic are a must if you like cask beer.

Food - The food is not that memorable, but the Sweet potato fries and the cottage pie are pretty good.

My only complaint is that sometimes the bartenders don't serve the right glass for the style. Most of the time they do though. And that good beers seem to sell out quickly.

A great place to have a cask beer and potato fries. (1,224 characters)

Hit this place 3 times over 2 days. This will get me up to Tulsa to visit my daughter more often. My only bitch is I had planned to camp out here all night July 4th but they shut down so their employees could have the night off. Can't bitch about that. Their tap selection is great and it has a very good mix and they complement it with a good bottle selection. We ended up eating there twice and everyone's food was great. And I cannot forget the service, the waitstaff are very attentive and gave good recommendations when asked. (537 characters)

Friendly atmosphere with employees that generally have a solid beer knowledge. One of the best tap and bottle selections in Tulsa. Prices are okay. Maybe a little steep for OK, but better than other states I guess. Food is better than your avg pub fare. Cheap burgers on Wed. (280 characters)

Amazing environment, the food is out of this world, the service is great 99% of the time. There is a smoking and non-smoking section, which you just don't see anymore. Not to mention, they have the largest beer selection in town. 60 handles and about 250 bottles. Fun activities held year round, check out the centennial club, and buy a mug, because you'll be back! (365 characters)
