A cafeteria style place, and a bit of a goldfish bowl, that lacks the usual cosiness and warmth of Mellow Mushrooms. Apart from that, it’s as you’d expect with pizzas and a long beer list.

Well, it’s got the typical Mellow Mushroom feel. This location, like most in downtown areas, can get very, very crowded and loud. The beer selection is thorough and the hustling waitress in the bar area took good care of us, the business considered. I finally at a Shroom again here, dining on a very tasty and reasonably priced toasted BLT club. This is a definite stop on a downtown trip to W-S.

Next door to Foothills, which we went to after Sexual Chocolate because it was such a nightmare to get food served to us that day. This place has a much more diverse tap list than Foothills and carries 4-5 Foothills beers on tap. So you get the best of both worlds. Pizzas were decent, filling, odd topping. Ambiance is trippy, uncomfortable. Service was below average. Probably has the best tap list in Winston-Salem.
Chain pizza joint in downtown Winston-Salem. Draught beer selection is pretty good, but several of them are from Foothills Brewing, which is just down the street. There are several other North Carolina micros and some others that are worth noting, like Old Dominion New River Pale Ale. Pizza and sandwiches are decent.
Very cool place with a good selection of drafts. I was very surprised to find such a selection of good beers, both regional and national, in such a hip little restaurant. I really loved their pricing structure: $3.50 a pint, for beers under 7% abv. $5 per pint for beers over 7%. Very attractive prices. The pizza was different than what I’m use to, but completely enjoyable as well. The decor was nice and the service was pleasant. I certainly recommend hitting this place up before making your way down the street to Foothills.

I went in there twice without ever ordering anything because there were outrageous waits. One time the half filled restaurant had over an hour wait for food. third time back we got food and it was quite good. strange atmosphere but i like it. Hippy fucks working there had a huge attitude problem. food was excellent. Tap selection hands down the best in W-S. The likes of Great Divide Old Yeti, dfh aprihop and 90 minute, lots of victory, just excellent beers i can’t find on tap even in chicago. I got the foothills seeing double ipa and it was almost flat. the bartender offered to get me a 90 minute but i wanted something i hadn’t had before. it was still pretty good. another new fun place in the shit-hole of W-S. A most stop. about 1/3 mile from city beverage.
The bar has an excellent tap selection, arguably the best in Winston-Salem. Great variety of styles, and though they focus on regionals they will have a variety geographically. I’ve never been a fan of Mellow Mushroom pizza: often greasy and insanely overpriced. You could go just for a beer, but I feel odd going into a pizzeria and staying at the bar.
I’ve been here a few times, but never gave it a review. Alot of the times the service is hit or miss, but today’s stop was stellar. I sat at the "bar" and the guy working there was quick and helpful. Got the steak and cheese calzone. Excellent. I’ve always been pleased with the food whenever I’ve stopped at one of these places.
This specific ’Shroom has 32 beers on tap. Nice! I saw some from Rogue, Avery, DFH, Starr Hill, SN, Bell’s, Foothills, Natty Greene’s, etc. It looked as if the brews came out in frosted glasses. Seriously?! With a stellar lineup like they had, I’m surprised they stooped so low. Ah well. Still a great place to stop for a great beer. Recommend.
