Since recently moving to myrtle beach I have been on a quest to find a bar/restaurant with the best selection of micro-type brews. Well my search has ended and I am not even going to look elsewhere. Mellow Mushroom has it all. I think I counted 41 total beers on tap and then a bunch of bottled stuff in the fridge. So they have quite a selection. They have $3 pints from 4-7pm, so you can get some of these brews as a nice deal.

They also have a beer club that has special events and tastings and you get prizes as you taste each beer. I think you get something every 25 beers or so (free pitcher, free pizza, hat, ending with a 20 oz mug and name on a plaque for reaching 100). Of course you have to sample every beer, not just 100 of your favorite.

Here is a quick sample of what they had on tap: Abita, Allagash, Stone Arrogant Bastard, Brooklyn lager, Dales, Flying Dog, Hazed and Infused, Highland, Kona, Lagunitas, Lion Stout, Magic Hat, New South, Rouge Dead Guy, Terrapin, Victory and Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Just to name a few

The food is really good and selection is pretty good. The pizzas are excellent, but they can be a little pricey.

I am basing the quality and selection on the area, but this is THE place to go for a pint in Myrtle Beach. There is no other place that serves anywhere near as many crafts. Anywhere that I can go to get a pint of bigfoot for 3 bucks is heaven to me. The barstaff is pretty good, they know what they've got and the basic idea of what it is. They are even starting to do beer dinners, the head brewer from Victory is going to be there Thursday night for a beer and food pairing. I cannot stress enough that this is the only beer bar in myrtle beach.

This is easily, the place to go in Myrtle Beach if you are looking for a great selection, and with happy hour prices leaving most drafts at $3, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place in the area. Staff is always friendly, and knowledgeable about their beer. Food is good, a little on the pricey side, but tasty nonetheless. The real calling card however, is most certainly the beer. With over 40 drafts and tons more in bottle, including many hard-to-find selections, this place is a beer-lover's paradise

I have always been a huge fan of Mellow Mushroom. I was excited when I found out they were opening one here in Myrtle Beach. I went to visit the end of the first week they were open and wasn't impressed.

Now that they are established, I have changed my tune. I went there last night and had a Hazed and Infused, Terrapin India Brown, and a New Holland Mad Hatter all on draft. I was finally impressed. The service was great and we had a big party of people to take care of. We were all givem the proper care, which is usually not normal here in Myrtle Beach. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and took the time to talk about there selection. I know that when I would like a good brew and pizza from now on, Mellow Mushroom will be the place for me.

Simply the best place in MB for draft beer. Very close to Broadway at the Beach, so drop off the wife and kids and head across the street.

41 taps. New Belgium, Highlands, DFH, Magic Hat, Victory, Bear Republic, Stone all well represented. New South IPA on nitro. Even a Foothills tap.

Service can be spotty. As in most places, depends on who's working.

Food is as expected from a MM.

The jewel of the trip was a SN 30th Charlie Fred and Ken. Got the last one before the keg blew!

Well worth a stop.

Went there last week with my wife and son in Myrtle Beach. I wanted to go for the obvious reasons - extensive beer list, and my wife was in the mood for pizza, so this place was perfect.

They had a really nice selection of craft beers - definitely the best in Myrtle Beach. Most places had your standard MCB along with Yuengling, but this place had a ton. I would say about 40 or so on tap, along with at least that many in bottle. They had DFH, Stone, Rogue, Bear Republic, Bell's, Victory, along with some local stuff like New South (Myrtle) and RJ Rockers (Spartanburg).

I tried two that I can't get back home - the New South IPA (on nitro tap) and Victory Hop Devil. Both were decent, but I definitely preferred the Hop Devil over the New South.

Our server was very knowledgeable about the beer list and offered suggestions based on beer type. He also provided nice service on the food end as well!

We had an awesome Mauiwaui pizza that was unique to this MM location and it was very good. Lots of ingredients. Also a really good side salad to start.

We really enjoyed it and will be visiting again when we return to Myrtle. We don't have these in STL, so it was nice to finally visit one.

Atmosphere: Great atmosphere--laid back, mellow, and very enjoyable. Not too noisy, though not quiet either, just a subdued dull murmur from the surrounding crowd.

Quality: Excellent quality--a lot of really nice microbrews from around the country, including seasonals. Nothing too luxury but definitely a nice quality of good beer.

Service: Excellent service--our server gave us a warning before happy hour ended, and even offered to give us happy hour pricing 5 minutes afterward. Service was prompt and accommodating all night.

Selection: Nice selection of beers--not a HUGE variety of beer, but still a very nice selection that can stand on its own.

Food: Pizza was excellent. Have not had many pizzas better ever.

Value: $3 pints at happy hour (4-7 every day, weekends included). Also ran a $2 yuengling special all night. Food was a bit on the higher side or reasonable, but beer was about average if not on happy hour special.

Located across the street from Broadway at the Beach complex near TBonz. Plenty of parking here to satisfy the large crowds that frequent the place.

There is a separate bar area to the right and a dining area to the left. Both areas give a view into the kitchen area to watch the pizza dough being tossed. There are about 10 stools at the bar and several hightops and booths. Several TVs tuned into sports channels provided visual entertainment. There is an outside dining area too. We opted for the bar area since there were so many kids in the dining area and we wanted a quieter setting. After 6:30 expect a wait for a table.

There are some 35+ beers on tap here, including Stone's IPA, Arrogant Bastard, and Smoked Porter, Victory Hop Devil, Thomas Creek Red Ale, and Dales Pale Ale. Too many nice offerings to list. Some of the local NC and SC beers they had listed on the menu were out. There is a healty bottle list too.

The waiter / waitresses we had were beer knowledgable but not overly so. Service was quick and friendly despite the large crowds. The pizzas and calzones were good.

This is the place in town to get a big selection of quality beers on tap. A must stop if visiting Myrtle Beach.

I agree with former posters, best beer selection on tap or in bottle on the Strand. Nice bar area, featuring an L shaped bar where along one entire length are 30? taps or so built in to the wall. Love that vs. the usual taps in your face along the bar; very attractive, and it makes it easy to look at them all deciding what to order next. The are then maybe 10 tables in the bar as well. and some booths. Many TV's, usually showing sports (wait, since when is Poker a sport?).
Service was friendly, and the beer knowledge seemed fair to good. Selection was good not great, but great for thie area. I had Bell's Two Hearted Ale, Allagash Tripel, Foot Hills Hoppymus, Arrogant Bastard on my two visits. Others had Abita Purple Haze, Franziskaner Hefe, Chimay Red. Many more in bottle and on tap.
Food is only pizza, calzones, sandwiches and salads, but for what it is, the food is very good.
Definitely a keeper. Wish they would come to Massachusetts :)

Not too shabby...decent selection of local and National crafts. IPA heavy with ABV in the 6% average range. Wish they had a few more stouts. Decent pizza and good vibe from the place....

The beer selection here did not disappoint. So much so that we had to go twice already in our week long vacation. We really enjoy IPA's and there were some excellent choices from Rouge, Bear Republic, Stone, and Bells (from Michigan).Also, Dales Pale Ale and Rouges Northwestern. Too many selections to list, but those are the ones we had on tap. We rarely get a chance to have these beers on tap at home, so we were in heaven. Loved the Bells Two Hearted, not available at home, wish it was.

On the way there, I said I had no interest in having pizza, but once there we ordered a caesar salad pizza, and it was above delicious. $12 for a ten inch pizza, but I would order it again tomorrow.

On the service end, I would call it lukewarm at best. When we asked about some of the selections we got a "its good" and "hoppy". Mind you the service was not bad, just not overly friendly and, who cares anyway, we came for the good beer, and thats what we got.

Well what can i say its Mellow Mushroom great food, great beer selection. We love Mellow Mushroom hit it up whenever we are near one. Food was good like usual, the service was actually good at this location which is a change from what I am use to. Now the important part the beers, great selection good quality with fair prices. Found out Monday is start of new beer week, they tap a new brew every Monday for the week or until its gone i guess. Lucky me this week its Avery's Maharaja, an excellent I2PA. The Maharaja is making me want to spend my whole vacation at Mellow Mushroom. If your in Myrtle Beach you have to stop buy.

Pretty much like any other Mellow Mushroom you'll go to. Nice inside area as well as an outdoor spot where I chose to eat. They plan on having taps outside as well in the near future. *Warning* Christian music played from 12-3 on Sundays, so if you don't dig that stuff, don't go. I heard the owner saying that it's his choice to play what he wants for three hours one day a week after somebody complained. Pretty comical stuff. A solid selection for the area with all the stuff you'd suspect pretty much. They had Terrapin India Brown and Stoudt's Pale when I stopped in, two nice treats. Good price for the four beer sampler ($5) and of course the food isn't terribly priced either. I'll probably stop back in soon, though not on a Sunday for lunch.

Overall, I found this place to be an enjoyable beer and food experience. A little too stoner-ish for me, but I'd be happy to check it out again (especially in another city) if I had few options to choose from.

Quality, service, and selection were very good. The mushroom soup is delicious.

Decent size draft menu (~40) and bottled beer selection (~60-75) was pretty good. Not a lot of local stuff, wish they had more. Most of the draft or bottle selections were average to top-notch micro-brewed beers I can get from just about anywhere. A little more variety wouldn't hurt, especially of the local variety.

This is the best place for taps I've found in the Myrtle Beach area. There are around 40 taps, plus other selections in bottles. There are offerings from Bear Republic, Bells, Allagash, Stone and the like, along with some more local breweries including RJ Rockers and New South. Last time I went they had Racer X, so they are able to get some reasonably hand to get beers. The beer selection varies among the restaurants in this chain, and this is probably the best of the few I've visited. The food is standard for the chain, which is to say it's pretty good. There is a separate bar area and some outdoor seating, and the restaurant is family friendly.
