Mellow Mushroom is one of my favorite places to eat in Winston-Salem. I love the pizza and they have one of the best beer menus in the city. On the weekends its usually crowded, but with a great selection of beers on tap who cares, it gives you the opportunity to drink more beer. In addition to a great tap selection they also have a petty good selection of bottles which include Samuel Smith's and Chimay. My only complaint in regards to their beer selection is that I wish they would have more high gravity beers. They usually have around 5 on tap, but I would like to see a couple more, especially some more imperial stouts. However, the last time I was there did have Bell's Expedition stout. As far as the pizza is concerned it is easily in my top 3 favorite pizzas. I highly recommend this establishment.

The beer selection at Mellow Mushroom varies from location to location. The Winston-Salem location has a good selection of craft beers on tap and in bottles/cans. There are several taps dedicated to the brewery of the month, and they occasionally have some of the less available releases on tap. The food is standard for the chain, so if you've been to another location you know what to expect. The chain is family friendly, and it's nice to be able to have a good beer at a restaurant that will also please the kids.

Typical Mellow Mushroom decor with late 60's and 70's psychadelia. Good beer and good food. 32 taps all craft with updated seasonals and several breweries and styles represented. All Mellow Mushrooms are hit or miss with service and this particular one on this particular day was a miss. I showed up after a conference at about 3:00. Just a few people in the restraunt and the only people at the bar were workers who either just got off of thier shift or were about to begin. I had to ask, often more than once, for my beer. And, I had to track someone down to take my order. I drank a couple of pints and then had to go look for someone to find out what had happened to my food. They forgot to put the order in. Then I had to track someone down to go get my food. That said the beer and calzone were good.

I love me some mellow mushroom. This is the one right down the street from Foothills that I never go to cause I always go to foothills, lol. But today I decided to go in for lunch. Great location and I was able to sit down right away. Ordered up a nice small pizza and enjoyed the view. Great list of taps that really reflected the areas taste very nicely. It got busy really quickly though as it was lunchtime downtown. Friendly staff though as always the food can be a little pricey but it is well worth it. Overall a really solid place as always and one I always enjoy.

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.

mellow mushroom OH I know you well!
I have been to lots and lots of Mellow mushrooms! This one is somewhat new.
I am simply NOT A FAN of the Pizza here, but i am a huge fan of the BEER...30 taps!
I drank enough to ALMOST try the pizza, but after trying the pizza all over NC and even a couple of times in VA I know better!
Good tap selection, a couple of things I had not heard of before.
Winston Salem needs something like this, good beer on draft, and a laid back atmosphere. With this place and Foothills I hope we are seeing the sign of more to come! Is the Mellow Mushroom a Beer Mecca???? Time will tell, but one thing is for sure It's the closest thing to one Winston has!
