Stopped here for a late lunch, sat at the bar. I like the look of this particular MM. Not as hippy-esque; definitely more modern-looking. The girl behind the bar was excellent. She really cared about beer, and knew alot about it. I could tell she loved quality brew by the way she talked. Ordered a Cold Mountain Winter Ale. Very good. Also had the jerked chicken hoagie. I am never disappointed with the food at this place. If it wasn't for their lackluster service at most stores (excluding this one), this would be one of my favorite chains. They had a couple dozen craft brews on tap, including Brooklyn Black Choco Stout, and Foothills Seeing Double. I'm glad I stopped in. Great place.

I've been to two other Mellow Mushrooms (Asheville, NC and Durham, NC) and was surprised at how trendy and antiseptic this one is. What, no seven foot tall fiberglass mushroom creatures? Just lots of glass, stainless steel and muted colors. It's very nice, don't get me wrong, just more 'corporate'.
When you walk in, one of the first things you see is the bar area. There are numerous taps on the wall (I can believe there are 32, with only a few macros), and the selection was fantastic! They probably had 10-12 local beers (Natty Greene, Highlands, Foothills, and Red Oak for sure). One of the managers was sitting at the bar filling out the week's schedule, introduced himself when I mumbled "damn, what a selection", and told me to start sampling anything I wanted! So, I tried all of the IPAs they had, and ordered the first of two Foothills Seeing Double IPAs (utterly fantastic, btw). I too had the minor issue of the beers arriving in frosted mugs.
The place was crowded, but we were seated in about 30 minutes. The server was very friendly, knowledgeable about the various pizzas (they have salads, calzones, and subs too) and was very attentive to my kids. The pizzas took a while to arrive (again, it was really crowded), but they were out of this world! I had the "Mightly Meaty" with pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, and ground beef.
Don't hesitate to go just for the beer selection alone! How can you go wrong with so many great local beers and fantastic pizza. I will gladly go back to this place.

Went to this place after reading about its opening in BA. As stated by the previous 2 reviews they have 32 or so beers on tap. Asied from their original list they had added 3 others and it seems like they are going to expand being that they had tap handles open with an assigned beer. What I liked most about the beer was that 1. they had numerous local stuff on tap. They had 3 or 4 Natty Greenes, 2 Foothills, 2 Highland and a Red Oak. The great hing about the local stuff was that they were all different styles. They were all local but there was no repetition within those selections. 2. They had great selections from all over the country/world. There was Rogue, Abita, and Chimay. Great stuff that seems to be stables of their beer selction. The food was decent but being not only a beer snob but more importantly a pizza snob the pizza lacked a little flavor but there was enough selection to keep you occupied while drinking a beer. Also there is smoking allowed in the 'bar' area even though there are no partions between the bar and eating area. It smelled a little like smoke but with the high ceilings it wasn't too bad.
One note on the service, I had previously read that other BA's had to ask for non frosted pint glasses when ordering however when I asked mu waitress for a Foothills Seeing Double IPA
her next question was whether I wanted a cold or room temp glass. So it looks like they might be learning on the fly. Seems they know about their good tap selection and fellow BA's are heading out there.

Their are 32 taps, the most in greensboro. The Taps were pretty diverse. the atmosphere was good, it felt like a church to me. We sat at the Bar, and the bartenders didn't know much about the beer they were serving. the beer list is great, and I think i counted in the mid 40's including bottled beer.
The Pizza was not very good. the service was decent, but the beer was great. I had a Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale (had to ask for a room temperature glass though), a Rouge Dead Guy (again with the glass problem), a foothills Pale Ale (yup...cold glass again...)and a Stone IPA (actually got asked if I wanted a room temp glass this time!).
You should go check this place out in Downtown Greensboro. Downtown greensboro has its own vibe, and this place will help add to it.
If you like this place you should check out Natty Greenes, Vintage 301 (both in downtown) and Brixx Pizza, they make the 4 best spots in Greensboro to go for a great beer!

One in the chain of mellows, beer and pizza joints. I like the setup of this one a bit more than others I have been too. Looks like a combo of modern/hippy makeup. The menu is basically the same as all the others. So, that brings us to the beer. Lots of taps, maybe 20? At present they had of note, Highland Cold Mountain and Gaelic, Stone IPA, Rogue Chocolate Stout and Dead Guy, Avery IPA, and several high gravs including Flying Dog Double Dog, DFH 90 min., Victory Storm King. Others included Abita Turbodog and Purple Haze, Magic Hat #9, Red Oak, Nattys Golden, Brown, Buckshot, Pilsner Urquell, some pear cider/perry, about half were average, a few weak ones and quite a few good options. Recommended, but as it's just opened, it's been very busy and crowded. We popped in there at 6:30pm last night, and it was a 30 min. wait and no seats at the bar. Smoking at the bar is annoying if you're eating there.
