First time at Mellow Mushroom. Loved the many different unique varieties. Located close to UVA. The whole family enjoyed it!

The pizzas are excellent. It is in a good location - close to UVA - and the food is reasonably priced.

This is a chain pizza and beer joint, but it uses local ingredients and local beer for each of its unique locations. I've visited two of their locations (SC & VA), but this one in Charlottesville is my favorite. Good service and delicious pizza, which tastes the same every time (5 visits here in three years).

Great value!!! Family of 5: pitcher of purple haze beer + 3 kids drinks + one large pizza with topping + appetizer of cheesy bread + 20% tip = $47. Wow!!!!!!!! Plus the cheesy bread was amazing and the pizza was great too. Loved the red sauce on the pizza and the crust is to die for. Yum. Highly recommend.

Date night out, having one beer each and splitting an appetizer at several different places. Great draft beer selection, and we even hit happy hour! Server very knowledgeable about the beers and flavor profile of each. Had bruchetta appetizer. Was not a fan of replacing the mozzarella cheese with feta cheese. The whole thing was really just bland. I wish... More

It's an institution in Charlottesville, and if you like gourmet pizza, you'll want to make a stop here.

When dining with our UVA student, we let him "pick the place"for luck or dinner. Hands down, Mellow Mushroom is his, as well as a family favorite. The garlic parmesan pretzel appetizers are awesome and the pizzas are delicious ~ and so many choices. The place is busy and vibrant and we usually have great servers.

Service was okay, we had dinner here two weeks in a row while visiting UVA. Had the Thai pizza and were very happy ... Ages 16 to 78. Crowded and not really aware of our need for a little more space and attention for our older guests ... It was okay. We stayed at Red Roof and needed a quick... More

A few friends and I ate here yesterday evening. The food was great, the drinks were good, but the prices were steep, we paid around $25 for a large supreme pizza. As we're all working professionals in town for alumni weekend the price wasn't an issue. We enjoyed a great meal and will be back.
