Best pizza and beer selection in town.
Great decor- check out the mural by local artist Millicent Greason of Urbanartware!
Awesome sound system when cranked up..
Could not disagree more with Scubatrip; the whole restaurant can turn into a bar, as it does later in the evening.
Nothing but a house party!`
Used to be a lunch spot during school... awesome pizza and a nice selection of beers. Service was always good and friendly here, and the bar is a pretty nice place to hang out. Not the best Mellow Iíve been to but definitely not the worst.
Iíve been here a few times, but never gave it a review. Alot of the times the service is hit or miss, but todayís stop was stellar. I sat at the "bar" and the guy working there was quick and helpful. Got the steak and cheese calzone. Excellent. Iíve always been pleased with the food whenever Iíve stopped at one of these places.
This specific íShroom has 32 beers on tap. Nice! I saw some from Rogue, Avery, DFH, Starr Hill, SN, Bellís, Foothills, Natty Greeneís, etc. It looked as if the brews came out in frosted glasses. Seriously?! With a stellar lineup like they had, Iím surprised they stooped so low. Ah well. Still a great place to stop for a great beer. Recommend.
Well, itís got the typical Mellow Mushroom feel. This location, like most in downtown areas, can get very, very crowded and loud. The beer selection is thorough and the hustling waitress in the bar area took good care of us, the business considered. I finally at a Shroom again here, dining on a very tasty and reasonably priced toasted BLT club. This is a definite stop on a downtown trip to W-S.
The bar has an excellent tap selection, arguably the best in Winston-Salem. Great variety of styles, and though they focus on regionals they will have a variety geographically. Iíve never been a fan of Mellow Mushroom pizza: often greasy and insanely overpriced. You could go just for a beer, but I feel odd going into a pizzeria and staying at the bar.
Very cool place with a good selection of drafts. I was very surprised to find such a selection of good beers, both regional and national, in such a hip little restaurant. I really loved their pricing structure: $3.50 a pint, for beers under 7% abv. $5 per pint for beers over 7%. Very attractive prices. The pizza was different than what Iím use to, but completely enjoyable as well. The decor was nice and the service was pleasant. I certainly recommend hitting this place up before making your way down the street to Foothills.
This restaurant/bar has the largest selection of beers on tap in the city. This variety makes Mellow Mushroom an extremely good place to start the night with a few pitchers and some delicious food. Plenty of seating and good service make this a good, if somewhat forgettable place.
Fairly good selection of beers here. Unfortunately did not get to try the food.

so Iíve been frequenting mellow mushroom for some time now. its a good place to go after work during the summer and its a good place to start your evening on a weekend. its not the liveliest place in the world nor is it my scene but its definetely a place to get a good beer on tap. of the 30+ beers there is a favorite brewer or style for everybody to enjoy. though at first they werenít circulating new beers in often enough or at all really, now it seems every couple of weeks a few beers have gone and you are still wanting more of them b/c they were sooo good and a few new beers have popped up to try. right now they have unibroue maudite on tap. Iím newly obsessed with the unibroue brewers after meeting them at a NYC festival. they also have brooklyn monster ale which is awesome. along with flying dog, magic hat, chimel, old dominion, avery, foothills, natty greenís and many other good brewers. it does have a hippie feel - the decor includes psychodelic mushrooms painted on the walls above bar and the bathrooms which are splash painted. the outdoor sidewalk seating is great for dining on a beautiful night. the service is SO SLOW. I canít stress that enough. so come knowing you are going to relax and have incredible pizza and good beers and itíll be worth the wait. you may be tempted by a calzone, but trust genny - just pizza and beer will do the trick.
