Visited on a Friday early evening. Nobody was here aside from a few people working and maybe a couple patrons. Street parking only. Right across the street from Holy Grale. Friendly service. The bartender was ready and able to help us decide what to get. He recommended a great local Berliner. Proper glassware. My biggest complaint is that is was a bit pricy. For what I ordered, it just was too expensive. Perhaps if I had gotten a more regular beer it would have been better. Didn’t eat, as I have never really enjoyed the Mellow Mushroom food. I would probably stop back in in the future. They had several great things on tap.

Overview: The Mellow Mushrooms Highlands (henceforth MMH) is a two floor structure that sits almost directly across from Holy Grale, one of Louisville’s most beloved beer destinations. It’s the second location in the city (the other is in St. Matthews across from the original BBC) and features two bars (one on each floor) serving fifty beers on tap (total). The downstairs features more booths, and the top floor has mostly four top tables that could easily be slid together to accommodate more guests. There’s also a patio on the top deck for those who like to dine and sweat buckets. The large open bay doors that seem to be a feature at all locations are on this floor as well.

In my latest visit to MMH, my first in nearly a year, I was met with a variety of issues, mostly involving service and cleanliness... our server, Jordan, hadn’t the first clue about beer, except that "I’m a Bud Light drinker," was her response to the simple questions we had involving the measures of beer available; flights were called "shot glasses," and though she didn’t seem to know what a half pint was, she didn’t bother asking the bartender, either. She also dropped- no exaggeration- five different items- while we waited (and waited) for our pizza; her only redeeming quality as a server is that she was friendly. This was not a particularly busy lunch hour, but our pizza was close to forty minutes for two 10 in. pies, both of which were overcooked and chewy by the time they arrived. My flip flops stuck to the floor in several spots, and at least two sets of our flatware were dirty before use. The Highlands Disease (I’m too cool to do my job) may be infecting the staff here. On a lighter note, MMH, like other locations, does a nice job of offering a variety of beers, especially a good selection from the area. Beer comes in a shaker or shot glass, as you well know.

PROS: Good rotating beer selection with local/regional emphasis. CONS: Right now, just about everything else. OVERALL: This place needs to get it’s act together on several fronts; I have the feeling that it comes down to competent management. Limited parking on site in the rear, but free street parking away from Bardstown Rd. Visit at your own risk!

Two story - main bar upstairs. Good but not mind-blowing tap list but usually have something interesting. Food pretty good. Worth a stop if in the area - just a short distance from Holy Grale.

Parking is on the street. This place is close to Holy Grale. Service average at this location. Food is the typical MM fair, which I really like. Beer selection is pretty good and I hope to go back.
