Great lunch

A friend and I ate at Mellow Mushroom last week for lunch and loved it. We had the Mellowterranean pizza and I had a Caesar salad. Both were great and the service was excellent.

Only problem was we couldn't finish the pizza & the hotel we were staying at didn't have a fridge. We plan to return on our many upcoming... More

The staff was friendly and helpful and kept my glass full. It was probably the second best philosopher's pies I had ever had.

Mellow mushroom in general, is awesome. I've been to a few and they are all different. This one is very unique and the good food is consistent with the others that I've come to love. Don't change a thing!
