Easy to find location in the front of strip mall off exit from I-75. Good parking all around. Bar on left with pizza ovens in the middle with table on right. Good selection of beers and good service. Had the Greek Salad, big portion at a fair price. Enjoyed the visit and on the way to Kingdom Liquor, so I will go again.

First off this place has warmer colors and feel than the one in Tampa. The bar area seems a little smaller. But they do have a nice array of draft beer selections and some cool stuff in the bottle. I see bottles of Saint Somewhereís two offerings, DFH 120 and DFH WWS among several others. I feel the Tampa location has a little better selection and seems to have a more knowledgeable staff. But Iíve only been to this location once. I will likely stop by again when making the long drive out to Kingdom Liquor.

Stopped by here in early April 2009. Had a wide selection of micros on tap and a solid selection of common imports from Germany, England and Belgium. Had two from Cigar City on tap which was nice. Bartender was engaging and knowledgeable of the local beer scene and the pizza as is always the case at Mellow Mushroom was top notch. Great tunes as well - been a long time since I heard Foghatís "Slow Ride" blasting through the speakers.

Similar to the Tampa location. Pizzas and, I reckon, the mellowed out bar crew. Nice support of local beers with fairly decent craft beer list that rotates on regular basis and with the seasons.
Not much in terms of atmosphere, same thing that you get in all restaurants, bar and taps with tv playing sports. Food wise, just your typical American grub. prices are decent, service is ok depending of the waiters. Nice and laid back.

Has a pretty good selection but has a couple of fairly glaring, although arguably significant or not, flaws. Their beer menu is not up-to-date. So, you rely on the knowledge/memory of your server to tell you the differences between reality and the menu. I only asked about updates regarding the draught selections and not the bottles, and lost out on an opportunity to try some Terrapin brews, such as Big Hoppy Monster. Secondly, their 16 oz Dunedin Brewing bottles are $6.75 apiece. I would pay that for top 100 brews, but not a flawed 48 percentile beer. Third, I had a sampler of 4 brews ($6 for 4, 4 oz brews) and the 3 I had had before tasted woefully worse than they should have. I asked the server if they had cleared the lines before serving them to me and he said they had, but I donít think so. He said they clean their lines weekly, but Iím not so sure. The Rogue Juniper tasted nothing like Rogue Juniper. Lost Coast Dunkel Weizen tasted nothing like a Dunel Weizen. Daleís pale ale was flat and not overly hoppy. Only DFH 90 minute was remotely like I expected it to be. Thereís an outdoor patio that gets late afternoon sun, and itís a place that cares about beer, but has some issues on the execution.

Located in a new appearing shopping center, this is a large pizzaria with numerous mushroom themed objects hung everywhere. The beer selection is good. The daily happy hour ($2 off drafts) makes it even better. Nice seasonal offerings including a few things I had not seen elsewhere. The pizza is very good and comes in many creative styles. Service is great. Just off I-4 - makes nice stop.

Visited for the firkin of CCB this past Thursday. Nice incarnation of the Mellow Mushroom concept. The service was good, the beer was good but a bit pricey, and the food is very good. I cannot resist the pretzels. With the departure of the amazing beer guy from Mellow Citrus Park, this one is the primo West Coast (of FL) Mellow Mushroom. They do several events every month and get firkins from time to time as well.

Awesome draft selection, 24 to be exact, not a bad bottle lineup some goodies in there, pretty cool 4 beer sampler for $5 which includes expensive oneís like
Delirium Tremens. Pizza was kick ass. More like a restaurant in there which surprised me since Iíve never been to a Mellow Mushroom, but the woman loved it and Iíll be back.

Decent draft selection includes some DFH, Boulder, Shipyard and Rogue. Nothing amazing, but all welcome sights in Brandon. Food is typical of all MM as is the atmosphere which to be honest gets hokey really quick in my book. Still I love what they are doing from a beer standpoint and you know if you go into a MM you can find a good beer to drink and thats comforting.

Visited on 6/21/08. Generally, we have never been disappointed with a Mellow Mushroom because they have excellent food and a reasonable tap and bottle selection. We can typically find something we enjoy drinking. This restaurant in Brandon is no different. They had a reasonable draft selection (2 Rogues, 2 DFH, 2 Shipyard, 2 Lost Coast, Delirium Tremens, Stella, Guinness and a few more) and a decent bottle selection including both 50cl and 75cl bottles. Worth a stop if you are in the area. However, my only complaint was that our server (who was doubling as the bartender) served my draft Delirium in a pint glass and then charged me $8.50 for a pint of Delirium! Not a bad price for 16oz of Delirium, but what made this worse was that they had the appropriate glassware on hand and she didnt ask me if I wanted a pint of it. Overall, good place to visit. Might tell the server what type of glass to use when pouring the beer!
