I had dinner and a couple of beers here, when visiting Birmingham. This was the first time I have been to a Mellow Mushroom. They had around 24 beers on tap, including a number of regional (Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana) beers, although the first two beers I wanted to try, were tapped out. The pizza was really good, and the atmosphere was pretty cool - very hippie & psychedelic. Service was a little slow, when I was there.
As with most of the chain, food is ok but beer prices are high and selection is limited. Of the several times I have frequented this location, I have never left feeling like I had a good deal or a good time.

Great hippy looking spot with Fox News [sic] on TV followed by Glen Beck (Ish al Koos?). Their slogan is "Come with an open mind and an empty stomach." It should be "Come with a closed mind and a closed fist." It’s pretty far right on the political spectrum. Beside my fear of being lynched (I am a communist), they had a decent beer selection and great pizza. In the top 5 pizzas I’ve ever had! They take pizza seriously in the South.
Kinda small (compared to other mushrooms i’ve visited) both in building size and beer selection. Pizza was good as usual. I thought I was walking into a hooters at first because of their neon orange bulb sign out front. I’d imagine their beer lineup would improve if AL is ever able to actually free the hops...
The food was good but overpriced. The beer selection is great, for Alabam, but mostly swill although some of it higher end. They do have 3 Sweetwater’s, 2 on draught, and a couple of Sam Smith’s. The service blew. You’s be better off going somewhere like Vulcan to buy beer and then pick up some take out. You would come out saving money.
