After several (I'm slow to catch on) really bad experiences, I've finally decided that enough is enough. I completely agree with SpikeRudy - No Thanks. The pizza is actually pretty good as are the hero sandwiches, but the service. NOOOOO. Perhaps management has some recreational substances in the break room that leaves the waitstaff very, very mellow and hence serving... More

7/18/2014 I suggested Mellow mushroom as an eating option to my family and they selected to come here. I dropped the family at the door as I had to find a parking space in the area and from my first visit I knew it would take awhile to get the pizza since it is "hand tossed" and made as ordered....

They pride themselves on selecting local ingredients. The pizza's have silly names but I haven't tried one yet that wasn't marvelous. If you like atmosphere, cute waitresses, and marvelous pizza this is definitely one of the places to visit.

The spouse wanted to try the Mellow Mushroom for Father's Day. I went off my diet (paleo/whole 30) to go along with the family. Won't make that mistake again. It took us almost 1 hour to get our food. Service was sparse. Our server was nice enough, but she must have been busy with other tables, because she didn't come... More

Fantastic atmosphere, service and above all - pizza! We had a girls day out and decided to go to Mellow Mushroom for cocktails and pizza. Both were great! Our favorite pizza here is the Holy Shiitake! While we normally all love pepperoni and traditional toppings, this vegetarian pizza is amazing! Always a fun place to go for lunch or dinner.... More

Relaxed atmosphere, and good food. The pizza crust was really good and the staff was very friendly. You can watch the guys making your food in the kitchen from your table. Reasonably priced and in a fun neighborhood.

This place has more personality than most chains. It evidently was not birthed in Denton, but it is quite Dentin-esque. It is weird (a positive note) and wonderful. Service was exceptional and super friendly for us first timers. I had the mellowterainian and hubby had a meat pizza. Both good, but mine was best!

This is the only place we go for Pizza in Denton. In fact, it's the best we've had in Texas. All of the food we've had was good. Only complaint would be the wings. They were skimpy but sauces were good. They have an awesome happy hour M-F with half price appetizers and decent drink specials. Atmosphere is fun and... More

Cool atmosphere. Very pricey! Has a beer drinking reward program. Although the price is unreasonable, the food is delicious!

Definitely a fun place to go- really good pizza- hand made- great service. Appetizers are worth the $. Dips/sauces/breads are awesome. Hippy mixed with sports bar= very different!
