Becoming a Family Tradition

We vacation every year at Lake Lanier and have made the Mellow Mushroom one of our favorite dinner stops. The quaint setting (a former house) allows for intimate and casual dining and the food and wait staff are always great. They have no problem accommodating my vegan son and daughter-in-law.

Pretty good gourmet pizza but it carries a hefty price tag. I typically try to stay away from the franchise pizza places and stick with the mom and pop places. Overall it was above average but nothing special.

By far the best pizza - great service and wonderful atmosphere. I would high recommend to anyone. We had salads also and they were fantastic. The kids especially enjoyed the atmosphere - great place.

Had dinner here and ordered a pizza. we LOVED the location and atmosphere of this Mellow Mushroom. It is located in what appears to be a historic old home. The service was great and prompt, everyone was friendly and the pizza was great (as always at Mellow Mushroom). I would highly recommend eating here not only for the great food,... More

The people are friendly there and the food tastes great-even offered to put an ingredient in the food that wasn't on the menu. They have special parking for "To Go Purchases."

Food is good but the service leaves a lot to be desired. First time I thought they had an off night, but after a return trip, got the same bad service. Hope you are not thirsty because it is a while before your server checks back in on you. I will travel to Suwanee to get my Mellow Mushroom fix... More

Went with friends & we all ordered different pieces of pizza & everyone liked theirs. I'm handicapped & had a hard time stepping up to the entryway. They probably have a ramp but it was dark & I didn't see one. Service was excellent. Seating is a little crowded. Haven't been back because I usually have pizza delivered but would... More

Good pizza and salads at reasonable prices. Great beer selection. The service is pretty good. The building is on the national registry of historic homes and I am very surprised that it was allowed to be turned into a Mellow Mushroom. I do have to say that they did a good job of, mostly, keeping it original.
