Atmosphere is bar/restaurant. The bartender was very nice and attentive. She recommended several beers. Large beer selection. I had the chili to see if I wanted dinner here. It was very watered down. So I didn't eat anything else. I gave a 4 cause of the beer selection and service from the bartender.

As a fan of Wednesday Burger Night, I was disappointed in my last visit. The burger came out dry and overcooked, though I specifically asked for a pink center, the bun was dry and crumbly, and the side of sweet potato fries were cold. I can't attribute the decline to them being swamped, because it seemed to be lighter traffic... More

McNellie's has separate non smoking and smoking areas, although the smoking area has more entertaining areas for darts and shuffleboard that the non-smoking section omits. I don't know of another place in town that offers such an extensive beer selection. This place stays full so if you have a big group you might want to call ahead for prompt seating.... More

First time going. We went for drinks and dinner before a concert at the BOK Center. Easy parking and we were seated quickly. Food was delicious and the drink menu is incredible. Will probably make it a tradition for the future concerts in Tulsa.

We walked from the Hyatt Regency downtown Tulsa last night to get something to eat. The neighborhood that this restaurant is in is really cool. While it was crowded, we were seated quickly and I surveyed the massive beer list. I selected an Ayinger Octoberfest Marzen which was great. The bratwurst I got was delicious my wife got soup and...

The drinks were good and the food was average. We had dinner here on a weekday evening and the place was empty, so not a great atmosphere except for quiet.

Great music, great food, wonderful selection of beers and whiskeys, but the guys next to us had loud, booming voices and drowned out the music. Small back room caused them to echo a lot. Fun bar area with lots of sports on the many flatscreens. I liked the ability to buy a nice shot of good whiskey or scotch at... More

Mc Nellie's Public House is perfectly named. It's a great bar, with really good bar food. Irish pubs are truly fun and have great atmosphere...so does Mc Nellie's. The only thing missing...is an Irish brogue from the staff...and of course, the location. It is in the heart of the Blue Dome District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. If you like beer, you'll... More

Atmosphere is outstanding and they have an incredible beer selection. The food is not the best. Went on $5 hamburger night and my burger was charred.

Was pleased they had 2 gluten free beer choices on the menu. The food options for someone that is gluten free was pretty poor. Turkey burger was over seasoned (salty). Fries were the basic pub fries. Disappointed in the food. The service was good, though.
