Atmosphere feels like a Greatful Dead concert. Not that I've ever been to a Dead concert, but this is what I imagine it being like. Waitstaff high fives each other and hugs the cooks when they go to pick up your order. I really liked the atmosphere. It's not really my thing but a lot of fun none the less.
The quality is good. I only counted three macros on tap and only one BMC.
The selection is exceptional. The beer list the waiter gave me had 62 beers on draft with only three that I would consider sub par beers. Those being Killians, PBR, and Yuengling Lager imho.
I had the mushroom pizza and it was the best pizza I've had. The pizza was 18$ which I consider to be pricey, but the beer was only 3.50 a pint.
This place is about on par with Barley's in Asheville, but not as crowded. I would consider this a must stop if in the Asheville area, but good luck finding a place to park.

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.
