The Mellow Mushroom in Asheville has some of the more interesting outdoor decorations I have seen of any restaurant. Cool downtown location just a few steps from Bruisiní Ales. Service was excellent. Food was excellent as are all Mellow Mushroomís (in my opinion at least). The beer selection is the most extensive I have seen of any other Mushroom location. A great place to check out some of the local brews.
This place far exceeded my expectations. 70 beers on tap, including 4 or 5 from each of the great local breweries- Wedge, Pisgah, Highland, etc. Lots of other NC beers, too. Great waiter who never let our glasses get empty and talked us into an outstanding pizza. Iíve never been to a Mellow Mushroom before but will be back if I get the chance.
Been here several times, once before I was drinking alcoholic beverages legally. Pretty sick selection of local craft beers along with a solid core of other craft selections. Pizze and zones are pretty good too. Groovy place, didnít ask how much it was for an eighth.
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!
A bit above average than your typical Mellow Mushroom. I did find it odd that with such a nice amount of "shroom" decor, they did not have the ímelsí and ífemelsí bathrooms, which I thought was a staple for mmís. The pizza was not quite as good as other locations, but the beer selection was well above par, with a terrific selection of locals, regionals, and seasonals. The patio outside is a great way to enjoy a slice and brew while doing some hippie-watching. Just be prepared to share your meal with the birds - theyíll eat it right out of your hand!
We stopped in here for a quick pint between other beer bars in the area, so I didnít order any food, but Iíve been to other Mellow Mushrooms many times before for food and drinks. This one certainly has the biggest beer list Iíve seen at any of their locations, and with a great focus on locals and seasonals, itís a really interesting list. The service wasnít very good, but itís hard to judge on such a quick trip.
