Went to Mellow Mushroom for a weeknight dinner. I had eaten at a MM once before in Pigeon Forge so I saw it on TripAdvisor and decided to go. The wait staff was busy with students outside and at the bar when I arrived so it too a few minutes to see a waitress. I didn't want pizza so I... More

The pretzels are a very worthwhile appetizer. We had the garlic butter and parmesan flavor. There wasn't much garlic or butter going on on, but they were still very good. The pizza is all about the crust. It has a crisp outer and a soft doughy inner. It appears to be a mix of white and wheat flours, just the... More

We went to dinner at the Mellow Mushroom. Outstanding. Both the Greek and Caesar salad were exceptional, the steak and cheese hoagie was substantial, and the pizza was best of all. Incredible crust, great tomato sauce and serious cheese. Eliza was more familiar with the 20 beers on tap, but the merlot was worth having. 8 different sports events playing... More

Very pleasantly surprised during our visit. They have a nice selection of unique pizza combos so we tried 4 different ones including a Buffalo chicken, a Mediterranean version, a Thai flavored one and a basic meat lovers pizza. They are very, very generous with the toppings and they all seemed to be high quality toppings. Our favorites were the Thai... More

Thank you for visiting our location and the feedback. The Buffalo chicken is one of our best sellers people love it. Sorry to hear about the stuffed portabello app we will look into controlling the amount of balsamic vinegar on this plate. We hope you will visit us again soon! More

This is a fun dining experience, from the trippy environment to the great beer selection to the food. Recommend the Muffaletta bread app & the House pizza (which is as packed as it can get). Great service & not too busy when we went, but priced well for college crowd. I want one by me!

Our family of four enjoyed the laid back style of this pizza joint. My wife was happy that they had a gluten free pizza( albeit a little pricey), but my kids really enjoyed their half cheese/pepperoni pie a lot. The beer selection seemed to be quite extensive and the location is ideal.

This is the second time my wife and I have eaten here. The service was great and the food was excellent. We requested quick service on this visit because we didn't have much before leaving town. They met the challenge. When in town, we will eat here again.

Nice experience all the way around. My 20 year old daughter picked it because she thought it looked cool. It looked even cooler on the inside! In addition to the psychedelic decor that included our founding fathers (we loved that), there was a video above the counter that showed a GoPro perspective from the pizza chefs who were making the...

Made a stop at Mellow Mushroom after a family trip to Monticello. The pizza was delicious, as always, and the service could not have been better!
