Best pizza around, sandwiches are a must on the menu too. In the heart of downtown with lots of funky decor. Staff is super friendly with a great variety of adult beverages for all your taste buds. Highly recommend!

No matter which MM I go to, the service is either slow, or just....bad. My kids say I'm just not mellow enough for Mellow Mushroom. I'm fully aware that MM pizza generally takes longer to cook, but having worked in all aspects of the restaurant business (yes, incl mgmt) for over a decade, I'm pretty well able to differentiate between...

Great food and atmosphere. The red sangria was amazing as well as the Kosmic Karma pizza. My aunt is gluten intolerant and absolutely loved the gluten free pizza. The only complaint is they should have the tables preset with plates, napkins and silverware.

We waited 30 minutes to get a table for 5. There were no napkins or silver ware. Had to ask two times for napkins and once for silverware. Waited for over 90 minutes for 5 sandwiches which were not good. Had to ask why our order was so slow and the waitress left and never came back. Finally the manager... More

I have eaten here several times and have never had a complaint. I enjoy the vibe and atmosphere of the place. Big fan of the calzones.

My husband and I eat at Mellow Mushroom every time we go to an Alabama football game. We also ate here a few weeks ago when in town on business. The food is really good and the portions are large, but you do have to be patient as the food takes a while to come out. We usually have really... More

I love Mellow Mushroom, but the wait here always seem to be an eternity, regardless of the size of the group. I've been as a couple and a large crowd and it always takes 30-40 minutes to get the food. Also, I have recently had to be on a special diet, including gluten free, and they have large gluten free...

when you just want a great Pizza and maybe a good craft beer, Mellow Mushroom on University Blvd is hard to beat.

Went here based on past experience at a Mello Mushroom in Tenn. The food was great as expected. The service was below average, and very slow. I would hate to see what the service is like when the place is busy. There were approximately 20 people at most.
