Decent selection of SC beers. Didn’t try the food. Kind of divey and crowded.

Mellow Mushroom is a decent pizza place with a nice craft beer selection. Head upstairs to the bar. A solid tap list with Westbrook & COAST beers being the best options. They also do a tasting paddle. Bottle selection was fairly extensive, but didn’t contain anything too surprising. I wasn’t blown away by this outpost, as there are better options in town. Alright.

Part of my one-night beer safari in Charleston, seemed like a decent first stop for a little nosh and a few local taps. Visually it’s more or less the same as any other branch of this chain, but I like the fact that the bar is on the second floor so you can feel just a bit more relaxed over your pint. Scored a nice window seat to look down on passers-by and enjoyed a couple brews at length. Great service, very knowledgeable. And there was a nice range of beers, a couple dozen or so, with a good emphasis on locals from Coast, Westbrook, etc. I’d happily go back when next in town.

Great pizza, smart staff and had espresso yeti and mexican cake on draft. Need I say more? Actually about 50 or so more great craft brews on draft. A full 16oz pint glass of yeti was $6!!! Thats what Im talking ABOUT!

Stopped in for a light lunch. About 25 total draft options, 5 or 6 of which were South Carolina locals. Food was fine, exactly what we expected. Our server was outstanding, chatted about the local beers, recommended other craft beer bars in the area, etc. Nothing worth going out of the way for, I guess, but I would definitely stop in again for lunch. Solid overall, I would have no hesitation stopping by again if I’m in town. Flights of 4 5oz samples were $7. Can’t beat it.

Went here for lunch and grabbed a COAST HopArt, which was pretty damn good. Solid taps selection (15-20?), pretty good food, though very expensive for a chain. Definitely a chain feel- gimmicky slogans, decent but not great food, etc. Also, service is incredibly slow; so slow that they make one of their mottos "worth the wait" as if that’s an excuse for bad service. Still, some good beer on tap. Check it out if you’re on King Street.

I’ve loved pizza and beer since I was in high school (when drinking was legal at 18). Those years it was just Bud and I’ve naturally expanded my horizon a little since then, preferring a craft ale (brown, amber, red, pale) depending on the pizza I’m eating. This Mellow Mushroom offers very good pizza and several excellent craft beers to complement whatever you order here. The other reviews cover the rest. If you want pizza and beer in downtown charleston, this is the place to go.

I think Mellow Mushroom has the best pizza in Charleston. Andolini’s is pre-made until you say what toppings you want...the rest are bad chains. Mellow Mushroom never tastes like chain pizza and their selection never screams sell out. They always have a fantastic selection of craft beer. Usually multiple from the same brewery. I’ve been their for Foothills brewery events and enjoyed barrel-aged Seeing Double IPA during their Sunday Night Trivia. My father and I shared one of my first craft beers: Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout there during the holidays one year. They now offer growler fills! Did I tell you how amazing their pizza is?
