Wife and I loved the Mellow Mushroom in Gatlinburg, TN, but the Johnson City restaurant isn't quite as nice. Pizza is always good no matter where you eat but the waitstaff seemed to seat you and leave you alone until they bring the long awaited food. Had to ask for another drink from a waitress that was not our own.... More

We visit Johnson City Mellow Mushroom often. They always have some kind of special going on. Reading reviews I saw several comment on bad service, as with any place there can be some bad servers. (Ask for Taylor or Brandon for really great service).

We used to visit this location frequently, but it has declined over the past several months. Service has never been great, but continues to go down hill. This last visit no one would wait on us. After waiting for about 10 minutes, we decided to go to Johnny Brusco's. We were taken care of immediately there and there were many... More

I am not a big fan of Mellow Mushroom, but my family is. We stopped in to eat, but had our service dog, so sat outside. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed (if you have traveled like this you know it feels like you have the plague). Food is always good, but it was... More

Some friends decided to take us to Mellow Mushroom, and since we enjoy a good pizza, we were excited about it. The excitement didn't last too very long. The service was ok - not great, not terrible. We ordered the Maui Wowie - minus the banana peppers - because it sounded like something my husband would love. He hated it.... More

I've tried Mellow Mushroom restaurants in various cities and they are all pretty good. The chain seems to rent or buy buildings that have a past, so they do not look alike al all. The menu is varied with pizza a dominant option. Today we tried the MM in Johnson City, TN. We asked the waitress for her suggestions and... More

I have a hard time giving poor reviews but this is crap. I had a nice gift card for $25.00 that I received for Christmas and I decided to use it today. I ordered a large pie with several toppings for carry out. I sent a coworker to pick it up. It arrived and on the surface it looked fantastic,... More

To get an idea of the vibe of this place, think pizzeria meets sports bar meets Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Out front is a metal sculpture, "Mel" from a local artist, a 7-ft-tall cheery waiter all made from cogs, gears, sheet metal, etc. Inside is a dark metal sculpture like a tiny-headed Darth Vader, also metal. The Karma... More

They have over 35 beers on tap with a mix of Craft beers,imports and domestics. The food comes in large portions and is very good. You shouldn't go home hungry. It is an interesting atmosphere, kind of a 70"s feel. Service was great. We had houge sandwiches and the pizza. Will definately go back when we are in town. They... More
