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!

We loved this pizza. Really fresh ingredients and a nice this edge that has the consistency of fresh baked bread. My friend is a total vegan and they offer soy cheese. So we had a medium all meat pizza with real cheese for our two carnivores and a small vegan pizza with soy cheese for our herbivore. Both we excelent.

Could not wait to enjoy the Mellow Mushroom again after a few years. First visit to this one. Quick service to start but then we waited and waited and waited. After asking we found out our pizza had been skipped over by the kitchen. Waiter owned the mistake, manager jumped into to action to make it right and they saved... More

I had time after a doctor's appt. to have a lunch at the restaurant. From my seat I was able to view how each waitress treated the customers. Got to say I was quite impressed. Each took time to explain the various pizzas. My pizza was good and look forward to my next trip there.

Great service, excellent food, busy atmosphere making it fun. Only downside was the parking that was difficult to find. Was close to several "hot spots" making it a great stop.

For some reason this place doesn't wow me. Ive been to a lot of pizza restaurants and I always forget about this one. The two times I've been here the service has been poor and the pizza is just okay. I just remember the beef tasting funky.

Great place to hang out for good pizza and plenty of great beer options. The staff, albeit a bit "quirky" is very friendly and engaging. Definitely one of my favorite Mellows in the country.
