Came in on a rainy Saturday after completing our daughter's return to UVA. We were told to sit anywhere and we sat in the back near the bar. Not as busy in the back, but that is fine. Ordered our pizzas.....classic with pepperoni and sausage and then a more interesting one, "Funky Q. Chicken"! We enjoyed ours along with a... More

Have eaten at Mellow Mushroom in other cities and this one is equally great. Fresh, made to order pizza. Lots of choices. Great location with an outstanding outside dining area where you can easily people watch.

This is at best a junk food stop. The pizza was strange, tasting like a bad pizza on a cheese bread. The mushroom soup was over the top in richness with a cheese like overlay. There must be better choices for bar food.

WOW- this place is memorable. Its a delicious pizza and terrific appetizers. Plenty of brewed beer and wine choices. Its a busy buzzy type of place - hang out for the college kids but plenty of space for all. Try it if you absolutely love pizza!

Visiting UVA. Took lunch break here. Ordered Magical Mystery Tour pizza. Delicious! Crust was worth every bite. Combination of cheese, pesto & mushrooms was so good. Highly recommend.

All I can says is that I am beyond excited that I have some pizza for the ride home! Almost everyone at our table got the Mighty Meaty in some variation, even gluten free!!! We also had pretzels w/ marinara for the appetizer. Every thing was great with the exception of my salad which was just ok. They need to... More

The Wife is gluten-free, by necessity (not choice) and has perfected her pizza dough recipe after two years. Apparently all we had to do was come here! This is the only GF dough she feels rivals her's! As for the 'regular' pizza ... Oh ... My ... Gawd! Amazing! And local beer on tap? Find me an apartment nearby; we're... More

I found this place online before we left the UK, as my wife is gluten-intolerant and I didn't want us to have to search for ages when we arrived in Charlottesville. What a fabulous restaurant - quirky, but with a certain charm. The service was prompt and helpful, and the pizzas were great. I had a holy shitake, which was... More

We were visiting Monticello with our nephew's family and stopped at the Mellow Mushroom for lunch after our tour. The Mellow Mushroom is a few steps from the UVA campus, and obviously a popular hangout/sports bar with woody interior, a large bar, tv screens mounted everywhere and roomy booths. The 6 of us, ranging in age from 7 to 68,... More

I ordered the vegie pizza and it was THE BEST pizza I've had ever. It was my first time eating from there. It was amazing! The next time I am in Charlottesville I will be sure to eat in this time!
