This gem of a pub offers a little bit of everything for almost everyone. The staff is most professional and efficient. The food is delicious and made to order. The atmosphere is inviting.

Food here is above average but I mainly come for Pint Night. It is a really cool concept and my friends love coming here together. The environment and service is always great.

McNellies is a perfect ending point after a stroll down Main St Norman for the 2nd Friday monthly Art Walk. If your lucky you'll get a seat at the bar or squeeze in with friends at a table. Otherwise you'll have to wait for seating. They have a large variety of interesting 🍻 beers on tap. The bartenders are usually... More

I have no clue how many kinds of beer they have, but my friend has a sheet of paper where he has sampled 300 different beers. They gave him a plaque on the wall and a T-shirt it is a small pub the kind of place where you are going to know everyone there even if it's your first time.... More

Landed here almost by mistake. What a terrific moment of luck. This spot has all the ambiance of a terrific Irish pub. The food is well-done, but the real star is the bar. One of the best draft lists anywhere in Norman and a formidable whiskey list. I strongly recommend this spot for anyone looking to have a nice drink... More

Try out this most special pub in the heart of Norman. The atmosphere is casual and pub like. The staff is most knowledgeable about the numerous beers on tap and those by the bottle. The menu is worth consideration. The burgers and choices of fries are delightful.

Probably 150 different beers on the menu. All kinds of things to try, which is fun with friends or coworkers. However I stared at the menu for a while trying to decide what I wanted to settle for.

We go to "Pint Night" every Monday evening. Great beer list for serious beer drinkers. Food is very good. The staff goes out of there way to take care of you. I highly recommend the Beer Universities and special events. Great "local pub"!

This second OKC McNellies opened after the success of the the one in Midtown. Like its predecessor, this bar is known for its extensive beer selection. The food is also good but sticks to bar fare but is done better than most places.

We've been to McNellie's several times but the only thing that seems to change is the service or beer. Servers are inattentive and menu selections are limited. The queso is great! The salads are ok. I've gotten the pulled pork sandwich before and I was hoping it was just a bad day. But nope. The menu says the pork is... More
