Was in the area for a long weekend with some friends and driving down the Pkwy, I was glad to see this place! Decided to stop in for lunch after hitting the outlets with the wives. Having checked out "beerfly" before we came, there wasn't much to go around, so this est. is a welcome addition to the area. This is probably the largest MM I've ever been to. It's massive and has tons of seating. The bar is right in the middle of the place. An oval shaped bar with about a dozen taps. The had the typical BMCs there, but they had 3 Sweetwater taps, Highland, and a few other local goodies. There's definitely better tap lists at other MMs, but for this area, this is pretty good. They also carried a decent amount of craft bottles. Some Highland, Kona, Terrapin, Ayinger Celebrator, and many others I can't remember. Again, pretty good selection considering the area. As always, the food was top-notch, and the service was some of the best for this restaurant chain. My experience with most MM is that they have a very laid back attitude and slow service. This one was prompt and accurate. Check it out.

ate dinner, drank some beers while in town

one of the few places in town to drink some decent craft beer. pretty good draft and bottle list. our server was friendly and offered samples of new beers they just put on tap.

the pizza was pretty good - they have some funky options.

A pizza joint, with a surprisingly delicious selection of craft beers on tap. The Island location is a much friendlier place to enjoy. Stop by and enjoy

Came in for some dessert & beers Memorial Day weekend (friday night)

I loved the decor of this place easily one of the nicer Mellow Mushrooms I've been in

Quality of teh beer was alright, the Sweet Water IPA was good, but it has tasted fresher at other joints

Service was friendly & prompt

Selection of beers was so-so, a couple of sweetwater beers & one highland. This only gets this rating because beer selection was sad in Pigeon Forge IMO

Desserts were tasty, never had a bad meal at this chain. Everyone else's food looked good

Reasonable value for the area & may fit your needs if you are in this little slice of Redneck Heaven
