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.

It's a Mellow Mushroom. Good vibes, family friendly... as independent as a chain can feel.

All beers I have had there have tasted very fresh. Very professional, clean draft system. Never tasted any off flavors due to lack of line cleaning. Never had any issues with dirty glassware.

Service has rarely been a problem. I usually sit at the bar. Bartenders are friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. They will find the answer to questions about any beer even if they don't know, rather than making something up... I appreciate that. When I opt for table dining the service has been excellent as well.

Selection is hands down consistently the best in Winston Salem as of 2014 as many WSNC beer savvy residents will agree. Buyer is incredibly knowledgeable about craft beer, the industry and what is available in local distribution. Pretty much every bombshell, allocated keg that becomes available in the area finds a home at Mellow. Vertical tappings, casks, special keg tappings, and great Randall action are a regular occurrence.

Food is great. Most people have eaten at a Mellow so I won't elaborate.

Reasonable prices on most craft beer, and great prices on special release/higher end kegs.

Overall Mellow Winston is a blessing for the rapidly growing Winston Salem craft beer scene. Right now it is one of the few bars that has a clear, consistent vision to providing the best kegs available given the local distribution on a regular basis. My #1 place to go in town when I have the time to go grab a few brews.

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.

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.

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.
