Irish Joints to Try

An Irish pub perfect for watching soccer, Mucker’s is located in OKC’s NW 23rd District. The joint uses 100 % beef hot dogs, or Irish bangers, piled with your choice of toppings. For those meat-free, plant dogs and pizza are available, too. Wash it all down with a variety of local beers on tap, or a craft cocktail.

A new pub nestled into Tulsa’s Maple Ridge neighborhood, Bishop Quigley is perfect for a quiet sip or a fun night with friends. Try the pub curry, complete with chicken, shrimp, veggies, and basmati and garlic naan, or the old faithful: fish and chips. Brews win the day, with Guinness on tap, as well as a bevy of bottled and canned beers.

McNellie’s combines that friendly Irish feel with traditional pub grub. From cottage pie to fish and chips and everything in between, diners can enjoy a slice of Ireland in Oklahoma. Drinkers will also enjoy the rotating beer menu, as well as a collection of Irish spirits.

Tulsa’s go-to spot for all things Irish, Kilkenny’s on Cherry Street is as authentically Irish as they come. Try the Jenkinstown Cottage pie, with beef tips, peas, carrots, mashed potatoes and vegetables, or the Black Abbey Bangers and Mash, with Irish sausage, caramelized onions and Guinness gravy.

Many an Irish pub slaps a couple of Americanized dishes on the menu and calls it a day. But not Sean Cumming’s. Here, you can enjoy everything from Boxty – traditional Irish pancakes – to stew, corned beef and cabbage, and Shepherd’s pie. Stick around for pub fare, plus drinks, desserts, soups and salads.

Irish whiskey, bangers and mash, fish and chips, corned beef and cabbage. What more could you want from The Black Raven? The beloved pub, based in Harrah, also has other mouth watering entrees to whet your whistle.

Americanized Irish fare is the name of the game at Claremore’s J. Farley’s Pub. Nosh upon Reubens, Shepherd’s pie, chicken and cabbage or wolfhounds – cheesy dogs. The restaurant also hosts an array of weekly events, like bingo, karaoke and live music.

What brings you into CJ Moloney’s in Broken Arrow is most likely the array of entertainment options – pool, darts, live music and karaoke – but you’ll stay for the delicious meals, ranging from corned beef to patty melts.
