Located just a few steps away from Bruisin Ales the Mellow always seems to be a stop for us when we visit Asheville.
A funky, crunchy interior with lots of psychodelic paintings and decor--almost feels like a vendors tent at Bonnaroo or a Dead show! A large, L-shaped bar takes up most of the left side of the space.
The big draw, when available, is the outdoor patio seating area. Located along busy Broadway Avenue it is a fun place to sit, have lunch and a few pints and watch the tourists, freaks and locals of Asheville come and go.
Service is always a bit hit or miss at MM. It's not that the folks aren't pleasant, they are. Or the food isn't good, it is. It's that sometimes you wonder how long does it take to make a pizza and a sandwich? I mean, are they doing something else back in the kitchen other than making food?
Not that I care too much simply gives me an excuse to order another pint. Speaking of which one would be hard pressed not to find something on of interest with their 70+ taps! Only reason for not giving a 5 on selection is no cask selections are available.
Food has always been solid with tasty pizzas and yummy sandwich choices. Of course, being Asheville, there are plenty of fairly healthy vegetarian selections on the menu.
Overall the Asheville branch of MM is a must stop. One of the largest tap menus in the city, tasty grub and an attractive outdoor patio--really what more could you ask for?
