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.

I have eaten at a couple of other Mellow Mushroom locations and the food here was right on track with the others. Only complaint was that most of the toppings seemed to be in center of pizza. Easy to get to, easy parking,friendly staff. A little loud, but being by the college, it was expected. Manager was very friendly. Will... More

Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Our waiter Josh was awesome. Just joined right in the silliness with me, my daughter and her friends. Recommend the Kosmic Karma pizza!

The location is decent, though parking can get a little finicky depending on the hour you go. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun and upbeat. The music is a tad loud and so are the people, but it's young and enjoyable. The most fun was playing bingo for coupons. My boyfriend and I both won a game... More
