I think this is the fourth Mellow Mushroom I've been to, and the pizzas have always been great and the beer selection has never let me down. My kids fondly recall the one in Tampa, FL and they've only been there once. Anyway, the wife had to do her antiquing, and apparently Franklin is a hot bed for that so we made a trip out of it.

The Mellow Mushroom is located in what I guess you'd call the center of town, or at least the fullest commercial area that I found in Franklin. It's pretty much like every other one but newer. We stopped in early in the day and it was raining pretty heavily so it was empty, but the the pizza and beers were still good so who cares? And I guess on that note, except for the bar in the Tampa location I've never really seen one with a great vibe, they're mainly just pizza joints that have great beers.

What I'd say overall is basically what I've already said, pretty much any Mellow Mushroom is a solid stop for a pizza and a beer. I can't even imagine not having pizza and just grabbing a beer because the pies are so good, but if that's your thing you can do that as well and not feel like a weirdo. Absolutely worth a visit, at least in Franklin where your other choices are limited.

Came in on a Sunday and seemed like we opened the place up! We were the 2nd table there except for the stragglers (4+) enjoying beer at the bar. Atmosphere was always like last time. Very colorful and wild looking place as if a hippie had a weekend to himself and was put in charge of decorating the place! Cool.

Quality was beyond exceptional here. Appropriate glassware, great menu with organized by style, and great food!

Our server was a great help when deciding between three different brews. She was an extensive beer drinker and gave me both a list of her favorites and which ones she agreed that I MUST try.

Selection was excellent! Since I'm not local to TN, many of these brews aren't available to me in the MO market so I will just have to give it a 4/5. The list was however a 5/5 in my book!

Enjoyed a "create your own" pizza this time and WHOA! Added avocado and garlic to a pepperoni pizza. Couldn't have been any better!

Highly recommend visiting the Mellow Mushroom. Such a great place for both food and beer but if your trying to get a happy hour/specials type of place, don't come around. Had a semi-pricey tab again but well worth it!
