Their are 32 taps, the most in greensboro. The Taps were pretty diverse. the atmosphere was good, it felt like a church to me. We sat at the Bar, and the bartenders didn't know much about the beer they were serving. the beer list is great, and I think i counted in the mid 40's including bottled beer.
The Pizza was not very good. the service was decent, but the beer was great. I had a Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale (had to ask for a room temperature glass though), a Rouge Dead Guy (again with the glass problem), a foothills Pale Ale (yup...cold glass again...)and a Stone IPA (actually got asked if I wanted a room temp glass this time!).
You should go check this place out in Downtown Greensboro. Downtown greensboro has its own vibe, and this place will help add to it.
If you like this place you should check out Natty Greenes, Vintage 301 (both in downtown) and Brixx Pizza, they make the 4 best spots in Greensboro to go for a great beer!

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.

Just like most Mellow Mushrooms I've been to the one is Greensboro is no exception, it's probably going to be an enjoyable time with good pizza and better beer. The establishment in Greensboro has some pretty good beer specials ($6 craft beer pitchers, $2.50 pints) most days of the week. Service is friendly, wait staff is pretty knowledgeable and doesn't rush you if you want to stay and drink after eating. A nice selection of South East and local brews represented at this one with a few taps dedicated to barrel-aged brews. The beers rotate quickly so there's always something new to try when one goes back.

MELLOW MUSHROOM DOES NOT HAVE THE MOST TAPS IN GREENSBORO!!!
That being said:
Great staff; they remember your name (sometimes) and what you usually order (food wise...sometimes). Awesome rotating selection. Occasional Casks. $3.50 Brewery of the month (changes monthly) pints on tuesdays and thursdays with KEEP THE GLASS night every thursday for beer club members. Cool events. Have had a Randall with some fun stuff in it.
The Pourhouse currently has the most taps in Greensboro, NC with 62. The atmosphere and food do not compare to Mellow Mushroom, though. Somewhat of a sports bar, the night to go is Wednesdays when every beer is 1/2 off. (used to be all beers $2.00, but with Golden Monkey, Red and White, Pumpking, etc. on tap, i guess they got wise to that.

What's not to like here?
First, the service has always been excellent, no more so than our visit last night. We ate at the bar and chatted with a very knowledgeable gal who had plenty to offer, regarding info on the beer and food. The beer selection is excellent, the best I've found in this town, and always rotating. They've always got something new, and our barkeep told us Southern Tier's Pumking would soon be on tap, which is going to be an event for me personally (my favorite pumpkin ale, by far).
The pizza was incredible, the best I've had at any M.M. It was a shiitake pizza, and the aioli sauce drizzled over the top put it over the edge, flavor-wise. Beer-wise I had a Tommyknocker Black IPA, a Petrus Aged Ale, and a Dogfish Head Black & Red. Funny thing about the latter -- my friend spotted a fully poured glass of beer sitting there in the cooler with all the beer bottles, asked our bartender what that was all about, and she said it was an "overpour" or something, and said, "do you want it?" and gave it to us for nothing. Pretty cool.
A little surprised they even offer frosted/frozen glasses for their beer, but at least our bartender asked us which we preferred, frozen or room temp. But seriously, how can a place that takes their beer seriously offer frozen glasses? I guess that's for the folks who order Bud Light or Michelob Ultra, which they also stock. Whatever, such a minor gripe, and easily fixed/ignored with a "just say no." Excellent, excellent, excellent place to visit when you're in Greensboro. This is one large chain that's doing it all right.

Stopped in here after the Summertime Brew Festival in Greensboro. Upon arriving in the cab you could clearly see the lettering for the estiblishment to let you know you were there. When walking in I was blown away with the space that they had inside of this place. Seating on both sides and a nice sized bar off to the left. We grabbed a table and went and sat down. The servers were very nice and attentive. Just glad they had a sense of humor as some of my guests were pretty hammered. When looking over the beer list I noticed a very nice selection as others have said with a big spotlight on local brews which is always nice to see. Did not order any food but did get to try a pizza a friend ordered. It was quite awesome to say the least. This location is a must stop for anyone in the area if you are looking for a good place to grab a bite to eat or have a beer or two.
