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. (787 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)
