Brandon. Now this is a great pizza place, and a better beer bar. Very nice selection of taps and bottles. Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA and [!] 90 minute IPA on tap as well. They even had several other IPA’s available. Just right for a hop head like me! One of the best additions was a helpful and knowledgeable server. Mellow has a beer school that they have their servers attend. I think this is Great! Even better, our server asked us is we had heard about another Dogfish Head IPA. I couldn’t believe my ears. they had 120 minute in bottles [rather pricey, but hey NO worse than a bottle of wine] Man i was so glad to get to try that, and never would have thought to ask. Our server said that once a week all the servers try either a new beer, or something different, and discus it. Excellent! They have a great selection of gourmet pizzas and calzones. I had a very tasty calzone.
This is a great place, and every time I’m in Brandon, I’m going to spend some time here.

Good pizza and decent selection of beer. Service can range from the unknowing (some of the waitresses don’t have much beer knowledge) to really good (manager Anthony - always good with striving for good draft/bottle selection, Bill and the Andreas at the bar know their stuff). Always a good stop for good pizza and good beer.
I think I summed it up in the description above…. But let me press… I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! I eat and drink at a Mellow a minimum of once a week. They have DFH 90min on draft... that’s all I have to say!!!! - You should go!
Awesome draft selection, 24 to be exact, not a bad bottle lineup some goodies in there, pretty cool 4 beer sampler for $5 which includes expensive one’s like
Delirium Tremens. Pizza was kick ass. More like a restaurant in there which surprised me since I’ve never been to a Mellow Mushroom, but the woman loved it and I’ll be back.
Stopped by here in early April 2009. Had a wide selection of micros on tap and a solid selection of common imports from Germany, England and Belgium. Had two from Cigar City on tap which was nice. Bartender was engaging and knowledgeable of the local beer scene and the pizza as is always the case at Mellow Mushroom was top notch. Great tunes as well - been a long time since I heard Foghat’s "Slow Ride" blasting through the speakers.
Easy to find location in the front of strip mall off exit from I-75. Good parking all around. Bar on left with pizza ovens in the middle with table on right. Good selection of beers and good service. Had the Greek Salad, big portion at a fair price. Enjoyed the visit and on the way to Kingdom Liquor, so I will go again.
My family and I go here often for the pizza (and I highly recommend the pretzels). There is a decent selection of beer and I appreciate the quick offering of samples to help me decide what I want to try. The value is exceptional, especially when you aren’t charged for all the beer you drink - not sure if that is the result of some policy or a nice waitress :) Either way, I’m a dedicated regular.
From 8/5 visit: Nice clean feeling restaurant! Pizza was awesome but pricey (approx. $11 for a small 10"). Tap selection (over 20) is about as good as your going to get in Florida. I had the DFH 90 Minute IPA and the Rogue Chocolate Stout. Service was good @ the small bar area. I’ll be back!
