Mellow Mushroom, Tampa, FL
2 July 2014

Notes: 30 taps, all at $5 - 5.95 except for a few, one of which is Lindeman's Framboise at $7.95. Around 70 beers in bottles, 6 ciders, and O'Doul's NA. Oddly, or maybe not so, there are only 34 local beers on tap: Pair O'Dice, Tampa Brewing, Cigar City and 7venth Sun. I guess that makes sense for locals as they can get those anywhere, and stuff from other parts of the country is harder to find in Tampa. They also have beer blends, liquor and wine. Pies are usually $12.99 for small, $19.99 for medium, and $24.99 for a large. There are some pies that cost more, but the uniqueness of the ingredients and the flavor pairings are worth it. Pizzas = EXCELLENT. Great crust. They also have salads, soup, appetizers, hoagies, and calzones. It's a fairly large location with a row of booths along the right hand side, a roughly 16 seat bar to the left, and plenty of high tops in between. There's also a large patio when the weather's good. The decor is unique, at least the renderings. There's a mural that includes the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, but the chain actually started in Georgia. It's hippie-ish, brightly colored, and fun. The mushroom statues are something to see. Overall though, it remains fairly open, and uncluttered. Absolutely worth a visit if you love pizza!

Hands down the best MM I have been to and I've been to quite a few. The food is pretty much the same as the other locations(excellent), it is a chain after all. But the craft beer selection at the Tampa location is awesome. Byron, the beer buyer knows his stuff and they consistently get the good stuff in. 120 min, World Wide Stout, Hopslam are always on tap here as soon as they are released. They always have several tap handles of local beer like CCB, St Somewhere and Dunedin Brewery. Great place to grab a pizza and chill with awesome beer.

I did not have the opportunity to frequent the Mellow in Gainesville, so when they opened an outpost in Tampa, I had to check it out. I have not written a review until now, because I didn't think there was anything new to add to the forum until recently. If you read the previous reviews, you will see words like 'alright' and 'decent'. I believe that the staff and management have taken this place up a couple notches from where it was when it opened a few years back. There pizza tastes the same, and I happen to be a fan of their style of crust, but it now gets out to the table consistently hot and in a timely manner. The beer selection is on par with most of the better beer bars, and they always have something new worth trying if you are busy enough to only get here every couple of weeks.

The atmosphere in this place is very hippy 60's retro with a psychedelic feel to it. Basically it's groovy man! It's also clean which is more than you can say for over 80% of the beer joints. The service is fast and pretty knowledgeable as long as you don't ask questions of many beers off menu. But they are always friendly. The selection is good with an emphasis on the more common American micros (seems like an oxymoron but true). The food is great and varied considering it's a pizza place. They have everything from vegetarian to meatball subs. They will also help you pair the beer and food. It's a chain so it won't bring in many out of towners but it's a great place to eat and drink.
