“Impossible Noise Level”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

I'm giving it an average rating, only to not discourage others from having potentially good food.
Six of us arrived there at 5:30pm on a Friday evening, and there was a 30 minute wait. While waiting, we realized we could not hear a word another was saying, despite being squished together on one of the waiting area benches.
We asked about sitting outdoors, but were told that those tables were part of the bar and their smoking area.....
If you don't care to converse with your party, go there. Otherwise, go elsewhere, as we did.

“Great Gluten Free Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

The Mellow Mushroom was suggested by the concierge at our hotel and did not disappoint. We had dinner at the Mellow Mushroom at City Park; we ordered the regular pizza and it was very good. Good crust, flavorful sauce and just the right amount of cheese. On our second visit to the PHX area we had dinner at another Mellow Mushroom in the Norterra Center. This time we tried the gluten free pizza and it was surprisingly good; very thin crispy crust, same tasty sauce and just the right amount of cheese. The staff was very friendly and attentive, especially our server who was alot of fun. On our next visit to PHX we would definitely choose the Mellow Mushroom again.

“One of the best happy hour deals in the valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

This is a great place for happy hour, especially if you are a beer lover. They have an extensive list of beers on tap and in the bottle, and the seasonal stuff changes regularly. The wine offerings are few, but what they do have is decent. The appetizer list includes some nice offerings - baked wings that are tasty, but not as bad as fried ones, a nice caprese salad, a really good muffaleta, and the big soft pretzels with beer cheese (OK, maybe not as good for you, but really good!). NOW, add to this that from 3 to 6 all wine, beer, cocktails and appetizers are half price, and things get really interesting! We have had their pizza as well, and while not on happy hour, it's worth a visit on it's own.The only complaint I would have is that it is pretty loud - but that's pretty much the way it goes in most big restaurant/bars these days.

“Just Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

To be honest we visited this restaurant because I fancied a beer and we could walk, albeit across three car parks, from our hotel but we were blown away by it. Our server was amazing, friendly and knowledgable and when he started explaining that they had over 35 beers on tap he won my heart. And then they bettered it when the pizzas arrived. My wife is a vegetarian and, unusually for the States there was a large selection if vegan and veggie pizzas, in fact there were more pizzas without meat than with (I added hot Italian sausage to mine - yum). We travelled from Phoenix for two weeks and only had a better meal when we got to Monterey but the bill was considerably more.

“You MUST go...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

We were on an afternoon appetizer happy hour adventure. This was our second stop, but for future reference we would go here first and skip the rest, especially in City North....

Gary was our server and was super and in the know and added a nice experience to our adventure. From 3-6 appetizers are half price and there are drink specials. Do not miss the meatballs....

We will be back, possibly even tomorrow and the next day and the next day and will search out Gary.

Thanks for the great experience.
