Being the first place we hit in Asheville, NC, this place was a GREAT choice. Awesome both inside and out. While not being a hippie (anymore), the place was filled with this type of vibe and it was pleasant to be included into it. Artwork, tie die signs and t-shirts, suns above the bar, random chairs w/ graffiti branded across them, and colors that make your eyes go crazy fill the entire outside of the place. Where we were sitting, you could also watch them cook your pizza.

Everything was nice except for how the beer was presented and their menu that wasn't up to date... Not a big problem but was very annoying to keep asking what was on draft/bottle with our server. A bit tough also to just look at the tap handles considering none of them looked familiar!

Our server was just great but didn't bring out our food or last set of drinks. Hey, if I worked here, I might be hanging in the back also with fellow employees more than usual. She did know her beer though!

Couldn't ask for a better selection! Had over 60 beers on-tap and around 10 bottles. Did not know of almost ANY of the breweries on-tap so went right for it.

My lady and myself split a HOUSE SPECIAL pizza with more than enough toppings. From my picture of one of the slices, it had Pepperoni, Sausage, Ham, Bacon, Black Olives, Tomatoes, Peppers, Onions, and possibly more. The Medium was a perfect size to share AND fill up for the rest of the day!

After looking up and talking with others about the Mellow Mushroom, it turns out they have multiple locations! Will be coming back without a doubt. Such a cool place with an easy going vibe.

Average food and beer not a focal point of this establishment. Seems like a good quick place to grab a bite and an A beer but just not where I would want to hang out to sample beer.

Not being from down South, this was my first Mellow Mushroom experience. According to the reviews here, apparently this is considered one of the better MM locations? After my experience, that isn't a glowing endorsement of the chain...

We opted to eat lunch here because we have small kids, and pizza is always a hit with small kids. So a pizza place that got good beer reviews online seemed like a good compromise.

And this place was kid-friendly.

And they had craft beer. Which I like.

And the pizza wasn't "bad".

There just wasn't a whole lot "good" about it either. The pizza was mediocre, bordering on "sub-par". They had 30-some beers on draft, but in downtown Asheville, with so many interesting breweries nearby, I found the list to be largely unimaginitive. We practically opened the place at 11:00 AM, and despite being one of only 3-6 tables there throughout our entire meal, we received very slow service.

To top it all off, they brought out a pizza larger than what we ordered... my wife decided the leftovers would be useful, so we didn't complain. So that's my fault. But getting the order wrong initially is still on them.

Maybe it was just one bad experience? But all in all, I wouldn't really recommend it.
