Can any OSX folks recommend a reliable Nintendo emulator?

Seconding Nestopia; it's the most polished NES emulator I've used on the Mac. Richard Bannister's emulator ports are the first ones I try; they're all good. The only downside is that in order to use joysticks you need to pay for his Emulator Enhancer.

I really like OpenEmu. It emulates multiple consoles and unlike Nestopia (and Rchard Bannister's other emulators) it's completely free, so you can use a USB controller without paying extra. You can also do some Quartz mumbo jumbo if you're interested in that.

The emulator enhancer does work even if you don't pay for it, it just nags you on every launch of the application.

Nthing Nestopia. It is pretty sweet. I have a USB stick with nothing on it but a Snow Leopard install, Nestopia, and some games.

I seem to recall using OpenEmu when i was playing a of of roms. I know fr sure I had two or three different emus because no matter what not all roms will run on a single emu.
