Cool, funky vibe. Love the decor.
I’ve lived in Ireland, and this really comes as close to a real Irish pub as you can get in the states. In Ireland, pubs are the hangout spot, like a local diner, where teens and families can hang out....plus a bar. McNellies is more of a bar where you can also eat. But perhaps that’s just my American bias talking.

One of the best beer selections in town! Probably 50 on tap and 200 by the bottle/can. Beer menu is sorted by nationality and style. Flights are available. Bartenders and most of the wait staff know their stuff, so don’t be afraid to ask.

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.

I've been to McNellie's many times as it seems to have the best selection of draft craft beer in Tulsa. The food is good, but not outstanding. The service has been average-to-good every time I've gone, though the servers don't always know the answers to your questions about the beer (or the food, surprisingly). They have flights available, but the composition is pre-set. Perhaps they allow your to select your own beers now, but that's not what I recall. Go here for the high quality beer and variety of beer.

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.
