I had never heard of this chain before, but was referred by a local I was working with. He told me they had the best beer selection in Spartanburg, I cannot disagree.

The space is very artsy and unique. After speaking with the owner he informed me they are all 'sort of this way', but none are the same. The unique decor and layout is worth the trip. He also told me he had a focus on beer, I am not sure if other locations do, besides his Greenville one.

They offer over 80 different bottles, and an impressive amount of micros on tap as well.
I had a few Abita Purple Hazes, and Harpoon IPA with my meal. I ordered up a house calzone, which was excellent and quite the bargain at 8.49.

They even put the Pens/Flyers game on for me. It was on Versus, I don't think they have the NHL package. I was surprised at how many people entered the bar an said 'cool hockey!'.

A must stop in Spartanburg, parking is plentiful, and the location is pretty central. The prices are very reasonable and the food is very good, as is their beer selection.

Had knew about this location since I was little, but had never been before. Finally got around to stopping by here while waiting for mikesgroove to get off work so we could conduct Hobo Tasting #6.5. Location is directly across the street from Converse College in the small shopping/eatery complex off Hwy 29. Upon pulling up I saw the Mellow Mushroom 'hippied out' VW bus sitting outside and knew I was at the right place... Upon walking in, this didn't appear to be like other Mellow Mushrooms I have visited. This one almost seemed like an up-scale/nice restaurant with a few paintings hung up here and there. I took at seat at the bar and started to look over their tap list. Not too bad of a selection at all, but not overly great. The was the typical BMC offerings on. I was kind of disappointed that there were no RJ Rockers offerings on at all... Started to look over the bottle selection in the cooler and saw quite a few nice things including some Belgians. However, no Rockers once again... What is up with that!? Food looked good as always from what the people around me got, but didn't try anything myself. Now that the Taproom is closed, I could see this becoming the new Spartanburg hangout for craft brews as options are quite limited.

I cant believe I forgot to add this place in here. Me and the family make it in here at least once a month as my kids just love the food, ok well I do too. Not as well laid out as the greenville and asheville locations but still its the mushroom and well worth the trip. Always a decent selection of micros on tap and bottle, sure they are mostly common, but still it is much better off then really anywhere else you are gonna go in Spartanburg. Overall this is about as solid a family friendly place as you are gonna find in the area with a good beer selection too.
