My son and I stopped here during his freshman orientation. Very casual place with lots of T.Vs. Appeared to have a well stocked bar. Nice outside area. We started with the Bruschetta, which was very good, and then my son had a pizza and I had a make-your-own salad. My son did not like the pizza because it had more... More

Stopped by Mellow Mushroom during University of Alabama graduation weekend. Our party of 10 had a wait so we sat at the bar and ordered drinks and breadsticks while we waited. Chris, the bartender, was awesome--so fun, lots of recommendations and suggestions. I had the hard root beer which was delicious--I'd never heard of it and it was great. They... More

One of the only hand-made pizzas in town. We dont eat pizza very often so when we choose it, this is one of two pizza places from which we will order.

We had a gluten free pizza and a spinach salad. The person who answered the phone and our waitress made sure to double check for us if something was gluten free. Our server was polite, capable and efficient. She was the oldest of 5, she told us, when we were surprised at the way she anticipated our toddler's needs before... More

This was the nicest mellow mushroom I've ever seen in terms of the interior, and the food was good. As with all mellow mushrooms, the prices seem to be getting more expensive all the time, but service, beverage choice, and food are good. My only real negative feedback was they didn't have milk for my kids. Mellow mushroom is a... More

I can't believe that was a gluten free crust! We took our 2 pies to go, the brewery down the street welcomes outside food since they don't serve any.

Took the grandkids to CHOM and this was the closest place to get something to eat before heading to the museum. Was told an hour wait; so decided to give the kids a snack and head to the CHOM. Came back an hour and a half later and had a 45 minute wait. The pizza was good and they had... More

I'm a huge fan of Mellow Mushroom pizza, especially the Holy Shitake. I really like Trivia Tuesdays (they have gotten better since Joe took over though they need to get rid of the powerpoints since it messes up the game) and the $2 beer list. Some things to be aware of with Mellow: the $2 beer list is continually shrinking... More
