Lunch with Matta, about a year ago. The cleanest, most well-lit and friendliest Mushroom I’ve been in. Standard Mellow Mushroom feel otherwise, less noise though. Service was efficient and friendly. Beer selection was decent, but not the least bit interesting. Food is always good in my experiences at these restaurants and was no exception this day.
Decent draft selection includes some DFH, Boulder, Shipyard and Rogue. Nothing amazing, but all welcome sights in Brandon. Food is typical of all MM as is the atmosphere which to be honest gets hokey really quick in my book. Still I love what they are doing from a beer standpoint and you know if you go into a MM you can find a good beer to drink and thats comforting.
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!

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.
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.
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!
