TRUTHFULL this is a fave of mine regardless of where we are. Good quality food at a fair price. Some of the beers seem a bit extreme in $$ sometimes exceeding the cost of a decent glass of wine.

We always enjoy going to Mellow Mushroom. They have very good pizza, salads and beer. The atmosphere is very lively and enjoyable. Service has always been good. Definitely worth the money.

Takes a while to get orders 30 minutes the least. Whether you order regular or gluten free. Want you to buy more beverages while you wait

I went in here because the wait at De Palma was too long. I LOVE The Shroom so it was a good 2nd choice. I found a seat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. After ten minutes watching her pour beer after beer and waiting on other bar dwellers I walked out and returned to DePalma, found... More

They just don't care. Slow...uninterested. a bunch of kids running the show. Once competition shows up, they are dead!

Never had a pizza at Mellow Mushroom that I didn't love. My spouse likes healthy options while I go for the heavy duty pizza. Mellow Mushroom makes us both happy.

Lively, young adult crowd. Excellent pizza with gourmet twist. Good beer selection. Games on TV. My son and I were seated at the bar immediately at about 9pm on a Sunday night. Lots of places closed on Sunday night, but this was open and definitely a good find.

As always good food at Mellow Mushroom. Our server seemed like he was nervous and new - not bad just did not know much about the menu.

We had traveled most of the day to come visit our child at college. We decided on Mellow Mushroom for dinner as a few of us wanted pizza. We ordered some appetizers and mostly water (as we are all water drinkers, except one we don't drink soda). The waitress came back around to get our orders and to ask if... More

The wait time for the food to come out of the kitchen was way beyond reasonable. The food was good and our server was great but the kitchen failed miserably...

We certainly hate to hear we dropped the ball on the cook time for your food. But, we're working at it every day! We continue to train our kitchen staff on time management and ways to improve. Next time you come in, I'm sure your wait will be less! More
