“A chain, but a good one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We were recommended to have lunch at Mellow Mushroom by two friends who lived in Asheville. We are a family of five with kids 11, 9 and 5. Everyone loved the food and the whimsical atmosphere. We did not know this was a chain until after we left. While we usually avoid chains in favor of local restaurants, I'm still glad we ate here. I would not have changed a thing. It is a great place for a family ... Overall fun dining experience and good pizza.

“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

YUMMY YUMMY This is not your normal pizza place, great food. And the dough tossing was fun to watch as well (our table had a direct view to the kitchen -how do they do that??)

“Decent pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The pizza was decent - good but not extraordinary. Good beer selection. One night the service was mediocre and they even misled us on pizza sizes, causing us to order more than we needed. The next night the service was great.

“clean? not so much”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Allows dogs on the patio, which is nice. Waitress rubbed my dog and laughed, "I'm not supposed to handle the dogs without washing my hands"... not such a good policy to announce you are breaking with. Pizza was slow (>30 minutes), messy which I imagine people think means handcrafted and pretty average. Staff was spacey/inattentive to us (though the dog did all right). Kids had two sodas before the salad was served. Refills were brought to them without asking. Won't be back even though we are local.
