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!

No other pub in Tulsa comes close to McNellie's. They recently expanded into what was another bar next door. The beer selection is far, far better than one would expect in a town like Tulsa. Many larger cities don't even have a bar of McNellie's caliber. It truly is a diamond in the rough.
It doesn't look all that big at first, but when you do some exploring, you'll see it's very large. There are two rooms downstairs (non-smoking) and two rooms upstairs (smoking), plus a party room upstairs.
The service is always good. The bartenders knowledgable, and no more than one or two of their 60ish taps are wasted on macrobrews.

The wife and I went here on our Thanksgiving visit to T-town. I was in Awe at the beer menu and had to order a couple brews unavailable in our area. The waiter was very familiar with all the beers on the menu and especially the local brews from the area. The food was excellent. We had the cheese plate, then I had the cottage pie (shepherd's pie) and a carrot cake. All were excellent. As for the brews, I had a Kwak and a local IPA by Marshall's.
Don't miss if you're in Tulsa. It's the best beer bar/pub they have to offer.

Beer lovers look no further. McNellie's Public House is a must if you want good brew in the Tulsa area.
I had an opportunity to travel to Tulsa, OK recently, and I stopped in McNellie's almost by accident. I was impressed by the selection that was available. I had a Great Divide IPA (on tap), a local brew (trappist style), and a Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout along with my burger and sweet potato fries. The meal was pretty decent for bar food, and the server was very knowledgeable of the beer selection.
I highly recommend going here if you want real beer.

McNellie's is one of Tulsa's most popular bars. It is also, IMO Tulsa's best beer bar (even though I've seen staff there wear shirts that say "Probably Tulsa's best bar").
The tap selections are quite impressive, almost all are craft imports or U.S. microbrews, and there are a LOT of them. The bottled selection is even bigger. The best feature, however, is the beer engine with two taps. The only cask ale in Tulsa can be found here.
The Pub seems to be crowded just about all the time, even on a Saturday afternoon the downstairs bar can be almost full. If you go at peak times, expect to wait a bit. However, the wait is worth it, for the food is almost as great as the beer. The burgers are tasty, shepherds pie great, and the sweet potato fries have a cult following.
If you are in Tulsa, this is the place to go if you are looking for Beer. Have a pint of the Marshall Brewing Mcnellie's Pub Ale on Cask, you will never want to leave.
