Really tasty pizza, but pretty expensive. Good selection of beers, fun atmosphere. You won't be disappointed with the pizza, but it is pretty expensive.

We stopped in because my son heard good things about the pizza. He had a gluten free pizza, my other son had a meatball hoagie, and I had a shrimp po-boy. The food was ok, but the restaurant was so warm that it was almost unbearable. Service was friendly and fast. Warning- a 12 inch pizza cost $20!

We stopped by to take a break from long bicycle ride and get something quick to eat. Server Alan was perfect with quick and pleasant service. Calzone piping hot, while salads very crisp and cold. Although draft beer not available due to technical malfunctions? Hmmm .....how hard is it in a college town to get a keg working?!

Every trip to Austin we stop at the Mushroom. The greek salad with bleu cheese is AWESOME. Always fresh and crisp. We always order the Holy Shitake/Philosopher as it's our favorite. We heard that Urban Outfitters bought up all the leases on the block. That may not bode well for some of the great shops including the MM. I hope... More

Husband said the day before we got to Austin "I fancy a Mellow Mushroom pizza", I said "Don't think they have them in Texas". Got to Austin and there we were! The tap beer was only available warm (we've been to other Mellow Mushrooms and had beer problems). Pizzas up to standard - good. Service was fine too.

Was sightseeing UT campus with my husband and stumbled in to this spot. We shared the house special pizza which was very good. Coming from NYC, we do have a high standard for pizza. The crust was dusted with Parmesan cheese which was a nice touch. They have a variety of sizes so you can feed a crowd or just... More

I had a calzone and my husband had a hoagie. My calzone was okay, my husband definitely raved about his hoagie. Overall, I thought the food was okay (not bad, but not great either). The reason I liked this place is because the environment is super laid back and the decor is very unique and interesting. Great for a one... More

This was a really neat place. Unique decor & they played retro 70's good rock music. The pizza was out of this world good. Wait staff were nice & friendly. Would def go back here again.

Well, I've returned to Mellow Mushroom and was very disappointed in the service. They lost our order and were way too lax about making amends. I don't plan on going back. Too many other great pizza places in town. Too mellow for me!

This was OK for pizza and calzones, but certainly not great. I wasn't a fan of the crust--it looked and tasted like whole wheat, even thought we didn't order it that way. Toppings sounded good but weren't all that plentiful. The service was average. They do have a decent bunch of beers on tap. Won't be rushing back….
