The Mellow Mushroom has changed since the days of its humble roots. The corporate version retains some of the charm, but not everything you may remember -- but maybe you don't. It's all good.

First: the pizza is great. You cannot go wrong here.

They have a large beer selection, but nothing that should surprise you, and the prices are a bit high. This is a bit of a tourist location now -- expect tourist prices.

My only big beef is the service especially if you bring children. If you bring your kids, they will stuff you in the back, and that sucks. It is for this reason that I do not go here anymore, but I would still recommend the food to others.

At first, I wasn't sure why Mellow Mushroom was on Beer Advocate. I've been there several times, but never realized their beer selection. They have over 40 taps, which include a wide selection of terrapin. They also just stocked New Belgin. I was impressed when i actually looked at all 40 taps taking up a huge section of wall.

Mellow mushroom is huge with nice outside seating. It's located in the center of athens. Their pizza is also really good. A definite must if you love beer and pizza. Not the best place for too many craft beers, but they still have a nice selection of drafts.
