Great college spot

While touring Clemson, a friend recommended dinner at the Mellow Mushroom. We were tired from travel but really enjoyed the twist on reliable favorites. While the pizza was great, the sandwiches will bring us back. It also has a quirky and interesting atmosphere.

The pros: interesting location inside an old home. The food was good, once it arrived. The cons: It took awhile for a server to come to the table. Once she did we had the instinct to go ahead and order all of our food (there were just two of us) in case it was slow. Well it WAS slow. 40... More

Most expensive meal on our trip and we only finished half of it. We were seated near the side entrance and customers were always leaving the door open when they walked in - causing us to have to get up repeatedly during our meal to close it or else freeze!

It was our first time at this chain of restaurants after we had been recommended to go to one by a friend. We were swiftly seated, but for the most part, the restaurant was fairly quiet. Our server, unfortunately, was rather brash and took little to no interest in us being there. Now, I wouldn't have said we were particularly... More

We took a trip to Clemson with family and invited a great nephew attending there to join us for lunch. We had eaten there a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. The location is near the campus which made it a convenient place for us to meet him. We all had some type of sandwich plate and they were... More

The atmosphere and indoor decor are great - along with the pizza! The 2 person tables are a little small though for all the space that's needed for pizzas and plates.

Mellow Mushroom has tremendous character and ambience. The day we were there we sat on the porch and it was wonderful. Our server was outstanding. The food was quick and fresh and hot. The menu is tremendously creative. You can do traditional pepperoni or go with a Mediterranean themed pizza or lots of varieties in between. I highly recommend this... More

For our first trip to Mellow Mushroom, we were pleased with ambiance and the food. Service was fast and the pizza was tasty! Interesting combos! Maui Wowie and the Thai Dye were delicious and something out of the ordinary. Good crust, tasty sauces and fresh toppings. Will definitely eat here again!

Ate here for the first time during parents weekend at Clemson. Despite a packed downtown, we were seated relatively quickly. The pretzel appetizers were the best I've ever had, and the Maui Wowie pizza with pesto crust was great. Will definitely come back when visiting Clemson in the future.

Service slow for lunch on Sunday. Place is not even half full. Food was ok. Had the holy shiitake pie. Oil pooled on top with mushroom bits. Did not find any portebella as the menu indicated. Too much packaged parmigiana cheese sprinkled in top. Did you ever hear of fresh ingredients? Put in the 'pizza is pizza' category. Nothing special... More
