TULSA - Fans of a well-known downtown pub will now be able to enjoy their fish and chips and a huge selection of beers in a new, south Tulsa location.
James E. McNellie's Public House has built up a following in Tulsa over the last 10 years or so, and has built additional locations in Oklahoma City and Norman.
Now, the McNellie's Group opens its newest location near E. 71st St. and S. Yale Ave. in Tulsa.
It's located in the building which once held Diamond Jack's.
McNelllie's newest location will be the first in the chain to be all on one level, and will seat roughly 200 people, according to General Manager Everett Estes.
They will offer nearly 300 different labels of bottled beer and will have 60 brands on tap.
Some of those offerings will differ from the downtown location, giving midtown and even downtown residents a reason to try the new location.
The new location will also feature an outdoor beer garden, something the downtown location doesn't offer.
The menu will be very similar, with the Char Burger topping the list of items most in demand, and of course McNellie's well-known pub fare like fish and chips and the "Irish Breakfast" will be available.
The pub features a number of unique areas for dining or enjoying a brew, including the "Famous Americans" room and a large area for banquets or other parties.
It comes pre-wired with a sound system, making it easy for patrons to plug in their electronic devices and play their own music.
The McNellie's location in south Tulsa opens for business Thursday, July 11.
It will open each day at 11:00 a.m.
Closing hours will vary during the week, and will be determined as the restaurant's management sees how much late evening traffic they get.
