We began from humble roots, founded by three college students in the free-wheelin' hippy culture of the 1970s. They wanted to open a restaurant that reflected their eccentric philosophies, progressive values and above all serve a high quality slice of pizza. What started as a hole in the wall pizza place with lots of hippy culture, has evolved to a collection of almost 150 restaurants in 18 states. Mellow is a highly experiential concept - no two locations are alike. Every restaurant has a unique décor with a custom designed art package featuring the work of local artists and unique local flavor, down to locally brewed beers and local menu specialties. Even today, as Mellows continue sprouting up all over the country, our mission remains the same: to provide you with an experience filled with colorful art, eclectic music, craft beer and food that comforts your soul.

It's a Sunday and we were in the mood for a good fire oven pizza. Several of the local ones (non chain) were closed that day, so we decided to give Mellow Mushroom a try. I am so glad we did. The service was quick and the waitress was nice. The pizza was cooked perfectly. No exaggeration. My husband and... More

OK, so we were visiting New Orleans, home of some very fine food, yet we ended up in the sort-of suburbs in a chain pizza place: Mellow Mushroom. I have no valid excuse for this lack of culinary adventure other than that we were hungry, happened to be driving by, and we like Mellow Mushroom pizza and Greek salad. So... More

Friend and i tried the new burgers. He had the carne, i had the veggie burger. Friend is picky eater but still highly rates the new burger. Our... More

We have ate here, and, also, used their take out service. Best Gluten free pizza, we have found, over ten years of Gluten Free. The pizza is created fresh, when ordered, so, there is a wait, but, not too bad, and, well worth it. We have always enjoyed good service here. It leans toward being a sports restaurant with large...

You can get just about anything you can think of on a pizza here except an average Italian Pizza topping. That being said what we had was very good and well done. The service is very good. There was an employee with a microphone playing a game with patrons when we arrived but the volume was so load we could... More

I wanted to give this restaurant location a 5-star rating due to the excellent pizza, atmosphere, and service. However, the side salads that we ordered did not have what was advertised on the menu included in them. Basically, the salad was iceberg lettuce with a small piece of dry tomato. There were no carrots, cabbage, or romaine lettuce. The dressing... More

The spinach salad with chicken is scrumptious! Lots of pizza specialties. Good service and clean. Family friendly as well as just adults.

All meat pizza was very good. Salads were good, but one was not as ordered, mix up between waiter and kitchen. Meatball appetizer was delicious
