A regular drinking hole in my hometown of the Noog, I decided to eat here for lunch. Mellowís always have a kind of 60s psychodelic look to them. The service was good and the food is good as usual. They do some nice pizzas! They had a good tap selection and decent prices on the taps. I wouldnít call it a must visit but nothing wrong with having a few there.

I started visitng the Mellow Mushroom chain when my sister lived in Albany, GA...it was the best and only craft beer location in town. When she moved to Atlanta I moved to Taco Mac for my chain craft beer bars. Nonetheless I continue to visit these locations as they are still often a good choice in certain areas where there arenít many others. This Asheville location absolutely has the best most eclectic look and decor (looks like it was an old gas station once). The food always has a nice variety of reasonably decent food. The best thing is being able to taste a wide variety of local beer from their large numbner of taps. My only major gripe with this location...and itís a big one...they were serving their beer "extremely" too cold. Iím from NJ and canít get Bellís Two Hearted by me...so itís a favorite on the road...unfortunatlry I couldnít taste it...just numbed my tastebuds!

11/29/13. Stopped in on 11/27/13. Typical Mellow Mushroom fare here, decor and all. Well-lit, family friendly for the most part, goofy shit and mushrooms all over the place. I thought this particular location was a little dingy/dirty, honestly. Huge outdoor seating area.
Our bartender was prompt, friendly, nice, and knew a bit about the beers. The only thing making the service a mark higher was that it was too slow.<P>
Great selection of local beers, but also a mix of GA standards that wonít appeal to the beer nerd - Sweetwater, etc.
I didnít have food, but I generically enjoy Mellow Mushroomís calzones, etc.
$3 pints available that day, which was nice, but only one of the many beers on tap. The other beers were on par for the area - too expensive.
Overall, this isnít a destination stop, but they do have a ton of local beers on tap and itís conveniently located in the downtown area where there is lots of shopping and activities. A good stop for a quick tick or two.

Interior is rather different from that of other Mellow Mushrooms I have visited. Service was a little slow though the place was not too busy, but the waitstaff were helpful. Selection emphasizes local brews, clearly written for all to see - but you can ask for something off the regular menu. Food is, as usual, darn good, and prices are reasonable. If the weather is nice, consider the substantial patio seating.

Stopped by here as I got to the LAB before it opened and this was a block away. Oddly, this is the first Mellow Mushroom Iíve been to that looks like Iíd expect a MM to look. Almost psychedelic decor with Alice in Wonderland motif and a bunch of other brightly colored stuff. Didnít eat. Big selection of beers with a heavy emphasis on local and a few rarities. Very nice and helpful bartender. Decent beer prices, parking lots nearby.

Catching up on old notes Visited December 20, 2011 - One of the cooler Mellow mushrooms Iíve visited. Great tap list, helpful staff, and great trippy vibe. The pizza still sucks, but I didnít visit for the pizza.

This is a cool Mellow Mushroom with good pie and a great draft selection. Our server was nice, but a space cadet, and took forever. Still, we had fun (once we were attended to), and enjoyed the pizza and beer.

Fantastic local beer selection and bartender was extremely knowledgeable about them all. Pizza is always good and there was plenty of seating. If Iím in Asheville, I will ALWAYS stop here for at least one meal/session!

Great local beer selection, maybe the best in town. Pizza is, as always, very good. Bartender was working solo on this night and while he did his best, he couldnít keep up. Any aggravation is service was QUICKLY made up for with his wealth of knowledge in local beer. If Iím in Asheville, Iím going to the Mellow Mushroom.

went there on a friday afternoon for lunch i didnt drink but my lunch partner had a beer. decent draft selection mostly local which is what i like. i had a tossed salad regular and 1/2 of a blt. the sandwich was good but wish there was more bacon on it. the salad was like never ending kept eating and eating. their version of honey mustard is pretty darn good. the motif is hippyish...liked the place it was cool. the other foods that i seen were decent looking and plenty for the veg heads...overall good experience.
