We stopped in here for a quick pint between other beer bars in the area, so I didn’t order any food, but I’ve been to other Mellow Mushrooms many times before for food and drinks. This one certainly has the biggest beer list I’ve seen at any of their locations, and with a great focus on locals and seasonals, it’s a really interesting list. The service wasn’t very good, but it’s 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 Bruisin’ Ales. Service was excellent. Food was excellent as are all Mellow Mushroom’s (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 I’ve been in.
The mellow mushroom is a great pizza place with a wonderful selection of local brew on tap, including some of the highland brew and French Broad. It’s located in downtown Asheville’s historical district right on the hill. A walk down the road will give you a beautiful view of the blueridge mountains. It’s quite a trip checking this place out, aside from the psychadelic colours and art that are all over the inside of the restauraunt as well as the outside, i can’t say it enough- the pizza is great!
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. I’ve never been to a Mellow Mushroom before but will be back if I get the chance.

First stop on my Asheville bar tour. Pretty extensive beer list including lots of local North Carolina beers. Service was shitty, but there were tons of hippies in town for the Phish show. Pizza was good and also had a steak sub there the next day.
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 ’mels’ and ’femels’ bathrooms, which I thought was a staple for mm’s. 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 - they’ll eat it right out of your hand!
First time at a Mellow Mushroom. Great service and very tasty pizzas. Waitress was from Harrisburg, PA. She even brought me a couple of tasters of local stuff without me asking. Nice beer selection and decent prices.
Went in for a beer after leaving Brusin Ales. Typical Mellow Mushroom ambiance, except there was an honest to goodness band of hippies playing music out front, with passers-by joining in by singing and dancing. Bigger beer selection that most Mellows I have been to. Quite varied and the two beers I had were fresh and tasty.
