College fare, college atmosphere

Exactly as would be expected for this location. Service was very good. Pizzas and calzone were fresh and hot. Good hole in wall, solid all around.

Don't think they have quite mastered their gluten free pizza yet. It is not as good as regular pizzas. Salads are pretty good and always fresh. Note they stop making salad at 10 pm on the weekends which is disappointing but I imagine not a big late night seller. Overall good takeout but very pricey compared to papa johns or... More

We recently went to Chancellorsville to a college visit. The university student who was doing the college tour recommended Mellow Mushroom for our lunch. We liked the food selection available and the service. Very friendly. It is slightly pricey compared to a typical pizza place. The food was awesome and pizza was delicious and outstanding. We absolutely loved the experience.

I was so excited to see the reviews that this restaurant had gluten free pizza! I think of all the things I miss after 9 years of being gluten free is good pizza. I had the house special on a gluten free crust. It is a thin crust so don't get any vision in your head of thick deliciousness like... More

I ordered the House Special 10" and my companion ordered the Mighty Meat10" and tried the stuffed portabello appetizer. The appetizer was nice. The ingredients fresh and the presentation nice. The pizzas were the main disappointment. While the toppings were tasty and fresh BOTH crusts were soggy, wet and tissue paper thin. It ruined the pies. While the restaurant was... More

The basic pizza dough is my idea of heaven. The mega vege' is a meal, one slice.... Add a large selection of beers, sweet! Not cheap but worth the price.

This was one of the best pizzas I've ever had and Holy Shitake is one of their specialities. A small is enough for dinner and a snack later. Great service and good selection of beers - perfect with their menu. The wait staff will make recommendations based on your food order and even let you try a small sample. Hope... More

Clearly most popular hangout, pizza place/sports bar. Best pizza, we tried plain and white and wiped both out. Gets crowded quickly, may have to wait.

Do you like your pizza with something besides pepperoni? Do you like your beer to taste like, well, beer? Then this chain that feels like a local joint is for you. Imaginative and tasty pies (plus other stuff like calzones) and an extensive beer list that includes a wide variety of craft and microbrews. I will definitely return.

My wife and I both love mellow mushroom pizza. We have been to a bunch of their locations over the years. However we have found nothing seems to beat the mushroom in Charlottesville. Each time we have been there was as good as it gets. The pizza is amazing and the service is always very friendly and the atmosphere is... More
