We LOVE MM and this is by far our favorite location. Large tables are available for larger group gatherings and there's an upstairs area you can rent out, and as expected, the food is fantastic. Also, What's sets this location apart from MM's other than the details above, there's also a large outdoor patio overlooking historic green street and a... More

First time for us to eat here. When you arrived at the restaurant you have to look twice. It is not your typical mellow mushroom building. It's an old renovated house, its pretty neat. We actually drove past it the first time so we had to turn around. The food was good and the employees were friendly.

We went there at 5 pm hoping to beat the rush but it took over 45 minutes to get our food. Our waitress forgot the sugar for the coffee, we asked for it twice. Since she forgot our silverware, one of our group picked them up from the waitress stand. The food was good, but the wait and service was... More

good pizza, wide body sandwiches and enormous salads highlight menu long on selections. pizza by the slice is a hit. a whole pizza would feed 15. service si on par. beer is cold, and the joint is busy enough to be fun without being overly so. what a grand old home it mush have been on historic green street downtown.

First time at this location. When you arrived at the restaurant you have to look twice. It is not your typical mellow mushroom building. It's an old renovated house, real neat. We always get the chicken Cesar pizza. The pizza was good and so was the service. Did not have to ask for refills. We would change me back again.

The house set up is very cute and being on green street is great, especially for those who attend First Baptist across the street. I recommend going before or after 5-7 because the dinner rush is ridiculous, but that's what happens when pizza is so good.

I travel the south. You can check my other reviews, or just trust when I say that I've been to many many many Mellow Mushrooms over the years. And I'm a big fan. Let's start with the positives: GREAT PIZZA! I ordered the Thai pizza, which is really a pizza that requires attention to get right. Well, they did.. in... More

We hit Mellow Mushroom for Lunch almost every Friday. This place has the best pizza in Gainesville. The service is good, sometimes slow but it does get crowded for lunch on Fridays.

The pizza was good, the service even better. We ordered apps, they came out quickly and my Moscow mule was well made. Highly recommend.

We have been to this location several times and always love the vibe of the old house that houses the restaurant. The decor is uplifting and fun. The services is always friendly and efficient. The restaurant appears impeccably clean. All that said, THE reason we keep coming back are incredible calzones. We could split one but never do so we... More
