trying something downtown

we went there before seeing a show at the PAC. a little small and crowed on a weekend. the upstairs is the smoking section and worse than a bar. not a place for kids. awesome burgers and if you drink they have lots of brands.

McNellie's, although it appears to be a popular place for getting together for drinks, the food menu has so much more to offer. My favorite is the chicken quesadilla, with onion, thank you very much. The serving size fills the entire plate and is more than ample. Price for the amount of food is reasonable. I have also enjoyed McNellie's... More

With amazing options on tap and in bottles. Service is friendly, and the food is quite delicious. Their salsa is homemade and better than most Mexican restaurants. Fish and Chips were light and flaky. Would definitely go back if I'm back in Tulsa.

This place had amazing food. We went after our concert and it was one of the few place open late that served food. The waitress was very good, there were only two working the floor and they were swamped. My husband and I ate fish and chips and he had irish cider beer, which he told me was very good.... More

Good juicy burger. Excellent service. Staff was very accommodating of a large "bachelor party" type group during a busy Lunch time (Friday, workday). Everyone was pleased with their food (mostly sandwiches) and the service (and the shots). Great place for a casual stop that won't break the bank and you can get in and out.

McNellie's is a fun place. The food is always delicious, and it's very relaxed. There are two locations, the original being in Tulsa's famous Blue Dome District, in a refurbished old warehouse. There's a large selection of beer from around the world, and there's even a beer "connoisseur" on hand for private instruction. It's a no-frills, jeans type of place.

Although the beer selection is more than amazing, any other mixed drink typically ends up tasting mediocre. The food is typical bar food-never anything fantastic.

I came for my first time in the evening a couple of Wednesdays ago and enjoyed the experience thoroughly.

McNellie's always seems to be busy. Great selection of food from burgers to pasta, soups and salads, tasty appetizers -- you can find all this online: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=mcnellie%27s%20tulsa%20menu Also a great selection of beers and ciders!
