Chain Restaurant but fits in nicely to the area.

Mellow Mushroom is a chain in the area that I am from. I usually don't like chains but this one is unique in what they offer. Not that the pizza is fantastic but the options are different than most pizza places and for that I like to go to it. They make very good pretzel appetizers. We ordered... read more

Superb! My pizza was 1/2 Kosmic Karma & 1/2 Holy Shitake mushroom! Mmm... Delish! Hubby had the meatball hoagie. Said it was good. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Located in a cool, old building near the Riverfront!

Located downtown Tuscaloosa and short walking distance from Embassy Suites. The wait staff was great, food was delicious. A bit of a wait for our food, but it was a busy Friday night and the food was worth it! Highly recommend!

We found this place while staying at the Embassy Suites for a conference. The lunch menu mostly offered pizza and sandwiches. I had a sausage sandwich which was amazing! My coworkers' pizza and salads all looked great, too. Prices were very reasonable. Service was a tad slow; we had to go hunting for our waiter to get our checks. But... More

Very good food, modestly priced, right in downtown Tuscaloosa, not far from UA. Didn't realize it was a chain until I found out one is going in Fort lauderdale

The pizza here is always very good! There are so many options it is hard to choose. The crust is fluffy and buttery - so good! I've never had bad food here! Service is good, but can get slow on Friday and Saturday nights.

I order a pizza from Mellow Mushroom at least once a week. As a vegetarian I can get a Mega Veggie pizza with feta and mozzarella cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, black olives, Roma tomatoes, broccoli, banana peppers, artichoke hearts and tofu. Often I'll get an Enlightened Spinach Salad with fresh spinach topped with dried cherries, apples,... More

We were able to rent out the second floor here for a large group dinner. We had plenty of pizza and salad for all. The decor was really unique and fun to look at everything. The waitress handling our group was top notch! Would definitely eat here again!
