We went to the one in Pigeon Forge, Myrtle Beach and now this one in Columbus. All three were great. Fun atmosphere and great pies. Affordable way to eat out for a family of four. Big loaded pizzas and good service. Can't go wrong.

Very slow service....it doesn't take 45 minutes to make and bake a pie when the restaurant is less than full. Seen allot of take out pizzas go out. Then the waiter tells us that they burnt our pies...unexcusable! We walked out!

Zachrich, Owner at Mellow Mushroom, responded to this review

Topdog, I would like to personally apologize for the burnt pizzas and long wait when you dined with us last. If you could please email me at cbus@mellowmushroominfo.com I would love to get some more information regarding your visit. Thank you very much Colby Zachrich More

This place had a nice atmosphere but just average to ok pizza. The pizza I had was lacking on cheese and the crust was a little too dry for me. I don't think I would come here again but it might be worth it to give this place a shot.

Thank Kramson
Zachrich, Owner at Mellow Mushroom, responded to this review

Kramson, Thank you very much for your feedback and review. I will show this to my kitchen staff to make sure they aren't putting to little cheese on the pizzas. I can assure you that this is not normally an issue. Please come back to give us another chance. Thank you, Mellow Mushroom More

I've enjoyed two meals here over the years. One was with my Dearest Mom in 2009 and then again this past March. The pizza was very good and the atmosphere was fun. They sell cute logo/brand shirts too. It is noisy, so something to keep in mind. Not sure why I haven't been back in the intervening years, but I... More

This is the first time I have eaten here and I was pleasantly pleased. The pizza was very good. The crust is different from most pizza places. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Our only suggestion is that they put more toppings to the edge of the crust.

clsmith335, Thank you very much for the 5 star review and your feedback. We greatly appreciate it. I will be sure to discuss this with my kitchen staff. We usually load pizzas from edge to edge with toppings. Thanks again, Mellow Mushroom More

We've lived near a mellow yellow for years and have just never tried it until recently. We were pleasantly surprised! Great flavor, especially the crust! Good service and atmosphere. The prices aren't the cheapest for pizza, but it's competitive with similar spots like pies and pints. Overall, we'll definitely be back!
