Great atmosphere! Loved the Prime Rib pizza and the pretzel bites with beer cheese. Attentive staff. We went after the game and didn't mind the edit because the food was fabulous.

If you are looking for a quick, pre-prepped lunch or dinner and are not too bothered about food quality, this will work. Nothing stands out here but I guess that' the idea. Large bar area is fun at times.

Love the spinach salad and pizza. Fun time with friends and family. Downtown and an easy walk to the University of Alabama.

I have been a "regular" at Mellow Mushroom on Mondays for months now - 1/2 price wine and apps night.  At first, I would come late afternoon, but have started coming as early as lunch and staying, because I can work from anywhere that has wifi, cool A/C, is clean, and keeps my Diet Coke cup full (until I switch...

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

We're in the process of training our staff to be able to get pizzas out in a much more timely manner. We're glad to hear that you enjoy our Spinach Dip and The House pizza! Those are two of our best menu items, no doubt. (: More
