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.
This has to be the coolest Mellow Mushroom Iíve ever visited. Itís a wide open design with a large bar on the left hand side of the restaurant. They have about 30 regular taps and 15-20 regional seasonals written on a massive chalk board that runs the length of the bar along the ceiling. As with most Mellow Mushrooms the pizza is ghastly. they either overcook and burn the shit out of the crust or oversauce and it ends up soggy. If theyíre really off their game youíll get both on the same pie. This is also topped with an insane amount of Parmesan cheese. But beer is the key here and they have one of the best taprooms in the state.

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.
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.
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.
Stopped by on the Friday after Thanksgiving and it was PACKED. Luckily we were able to find a place at the bar and decided to have a quick lunch there. The bartenders were friendly and fairly quick, given the crowd. Selection was pretty typical for Asheville. I liked it, it seemed a bit cooler than most Mellow Mushrooms Iíve been in.
