Since recently moving to myrtle beach I have been on a quest to find a bar/restaurant with the best selection of micro-type brews. Well my search has ended and I am not even going to look elsewhere. Mellow Mushroom has it all. I think I counted 41 total beers on tap and then a bunch of bottled stuff in the fridge. So they have quite a selection. They have $3 pints from 4-7pm, so you can get some of these brews as a nice deal.

They also have a beer club that has special events and tastings and you get prizes as you taste each beer. I think you get something every 25 beers or so (free pitcher, free pizza, hat, ending with a 20 oz mug and name on a plaque for reaching 100). Of course you have to sample every beer, not just 100 of your favorite.

Here is a quick sample of what they had on tap: Abita, Allagash, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Brooklyn lager, Dales, Flying Dog, Hazed and Infused, Highland, Kona, Lagunitas, Lion Stout, Magic Hat, New South, Rouge Dead Guy, Terrapin, Victory and Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Just to name a few

The food is really good and selection is pretty good. The pizzas are excellent, but they can be a little pricey.

I am basing the quality and selection on the area, but this is THE place to go for a pint in Myrtle Beach. There is no other place that serves anywhere near as many crafts. Anywhere that I can go to get a pint of bigfoot for 3 bucks is heaven to me. The barstaff is pretty good, they know what they've got and the basic idea of what it is. They are even starting to do beer dinners, the head brewer from Victory is going to be there Thursday night for a beer and food pairing. I cannot stress enough that this is the only beer bar in myrtle beach.

This is easily, the place to go in Myrtle Beach if you are looking for a great selection, and with happy hour prices leaving most drafts at $3, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place in the area. Staff is always friendly, and knowledgeable about their beer. Food is good, a little on the pricey side, but tasty nonetheless. The real calling card however, is most certainly the beer. With over 40 drafts and tons more in bottle, including many hard-to-find selections, this place is a beer-lover's paradise

I have always been a huge fan of Mellow Mushroom. I was excited when I found out they were opening one here in Myrtle Beach. I went to visit the end of the first week they were open and wasn't impressed.

Now that they are established, I have changed my tune. I went there last night and had a Hazed and Infused, Terrapin India Brown, and a New Holland Mad Hatter all on draft. I was finally impressed. The service was great and we had a big party of people to take care of. We were all givem the proper care, which is usually not normal here in Myrtle Beach. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and took the time to talk about there selection. I know that when I would like a good brew and pizza from now on, Mellow Mushroom will be the place for me.

Simply the best place in MB for draft beer. Very close to Broadway at the Beach, so drop off the wife and kids and head across the street.

41 taps. New Belgium, Highlands, DFH, Magic Hat, Victory, Bear Republic, Stone all well represented. New South IPA on nitro. Even a Foothills tap.

Service can be spotty. As in most places, depends on who's working.

Food is as expected from a MM.

The jewel of the trip was a SN 30th Charlie Fred and Ken. Got the last one before the keg blew!

Well worth a stop.

Went there last week with my wife and son in Myrtle Beach. I wanted to go for the obvious reasons - extensive beer list, and my wife was in the mood for pizza, so this place was perfect.

They had a really nice selection of craft beers - definitely the best in Myrtle Beach. Most places had your standard MCB along with Yuengling, but this place had a ton. I would say about 40 or so on tap, along with at least that many in bottle. They had DFH, Stone, Rogue, Bear Republic, Bell's, Victory, along with some local stuff like New South (Myrtle) and RJ Rockers (Spartanburg).

I tried two that I can't get back home - the New South IPA (on nitro tap) and Victory Hop Devil. Both were decent, but I definitely preferred the Hop Devil over the New South.

Our server was very knowledgeable about the beer list and offered suggestions based on beer type. He also provided nice service on the food end as well!

We had an awesome Mauiwaui pizza that was unique to this MM location and it was very good. Lots of ingredients. Also a really good side salad to start.

We really enjoyed it and will be visiting again when we return to Myrtle. We don't have these in STL, so it was nice to finally visit one.

Atmosphere: Great atmosphere--laid back, mellow, and very enjoyable. Not too noisy, though not quiet either, just a subdued dull murmur from the surrounding crowd.

Quality: Excellent quality--a lot of really nice microbrews from around the country, including seasonals. Nothing too luxury but definitely a nice quality of good beer.

Service: Excellent service--our server gave us a warning before happy hour ended, and even offered to give us happy hour pricing 5 minutes afterward. Service was prompt and accommodating all night.

Selection: Nice selection of beers--not a HUGE variety of beer, but still a very nice selection that can stand on its own.

Food: Pizza was excellent. Have not had many pizzas better ever.

Value: $3 pints at happy hour (4-7 every day, weekends included). Also ran a $2 yuengling special all night. Food was a bit on the higher side or reasonable, but beer was about average if not on happy hour special.

Located across the street from Broadway at the Beach complex near TBonz. Plenty of parking here to satisfy the large crowds that frequent the place.

There is a separate bar area to the right and a dining area to the left. Both areas give a view into the kitchen area to watch the pizza dough being tossed. There are about 10 stools at the bar and several hightops and booths. Several TVs tuned into sports channels provided visual entertainment. There is an outside dining area too. We opted for the bar area since there were so many kids in the dining area and we wanted a quieter setting. After 6:30 expect a wait for a table.

There are some 35+ beers on tap here, including Stone's IPA, Arrogant Bastard, and Smoked Porter, Victory Hop Devil, Thomas Creek Red Ale, and Dales Pale Ale. Too many nice offerings to list. Some of the local NC and SC beers they had listed on the menu were out. There is a healty bottle list too.

The waiter / waitresses we had were beer knowledgable but not overly so. Service was quick and friendly despite the large crowds. The pizzas and calzones were good.

This is the place in town to get a big selection of quality beers on tap. A must stop if visiting Myrtle Beach.
