Located in a fairly unassuming neighborhood on the edge of downtown Greensboro this is my first visit to a Mellow Mushroom. I am quite pleased. Had half an avacado hoagie and half a ham & cheese hoagie. Both were melt in your mouth good. The place is big and attractive with artsy stained glass windows, a generally simple, modern look but casual in feel with faux stone around a modest sized bar and lots of dining area. Then there's a slection of 30+ beers on tap with not a loser to be found. Plenty of locals like Natty and Red Oak, Highland, Foothills and Big Boss. Very nice variety of styles including seven excellent "high gravity" brews for $5 per 12 oz. Glass. All others are $4 per pint. Many of the big micros like Stone, Dogfish, Sam Adams and Bell's but a few lesser known like Atwater of Detroit. A very nicely selected variety. No shockers perhaps, but top notch. The bartendress was attentive, and helpful while offering free tastes readily. The music is very eclectic, I generally approved. Only one TV from what I could see but at least I could see it sitting at the bar. I have no complaints here and hope to visit more MM's in the future! Seems to be the best beer hang out in Greensboro now, despite a few other decent choices.

Mellow Mushroom has a very cool vibe.

They have a wonderful selection of beer, something to please everyone. A lot of bottles, and a great selection of taps. The staff is very friendly, and from what I have come across, very informative!!

Their pizzas are very good. I recommend the homemade pretzels. Order them when you first sit down, they take a little be to get, made fresh to order.

Place - This is one place I wish that I could visit more often. Located on Elm st in downtown GSO in an older building that has been refurbed really nice. Big open restaurant with the bar on the left as you enter, the bar is long with plenty of seats at and in the bar area.


Service - The current beer dude at large - Clayton is knowledgeable, helpful and always happy to talk beer. The rest of the bar staff also seem knowelegable and helpful.

Selection - great combination of locals (Foothills, Olde Hickory, Nattys, Highland, Lonerider, Redoak, Duck Rabbit)national crafts (Ballast Point, Great Divide, Bells, New Belguim, Stone, Founders, UNITA) and rarity's on draft also a quite good bottle selection ( not far off retail $$ ). Lineup changes frequently this is what was on when I was in.

Food - Pizzas, Calzones, salads, all are good.

Overall a great place in GSO and if it keeps a good beer manager it will be the best place to grab a pint .

I made my 2nd foray here on Christamas Eve after hitting up Pipe & Pint and Bestway for some take home brews. Both times that I have been here with my wife we have had a great experience, from the atmosphere, to the wait staff, to the bartender, and to the food and brews in my opinion; it's been top rate. On this particular trip I ordered a Highland St. Terese's from the bar and took it to the table wherein we ordered tortillo soup (which was outstanding) and a small phylosophers and a small house special pizza with anchovies (both were great). Our waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable about the beers on tap. Half way through the meal I ordered a Highlands Cold Mountain Winter Ale and it arrived quickly. Even though it was Christmas Eve and they closed at 4 pm, there was a decent crowd eating and enjoying the numerous brews. I like this place, nice music, nice decor, as well as the afore mentioned attributes. I highly recommend stopping in if you are in town or live in town. For the food, the brews, the staff, and the atmosphere this beats Brixx hands down IMHO.
