After a few days of dragging my family to area restaurants that, in their words "looked like someone's garage," we finally made it to Mellow Mushroom. As we walked in, my Mom proclaimed, "now this looks like decent restaurant!" It's a very attractive building from the outside, and it's fun and funky inside (love the mini Castillo). I agree with others that parking is indeed terrible. We tried visiting two nights earlier but couldn't park.
Anyway, we enjoyed our experience. Our server was perky and friendly and told us she was a beer expert. She helped us select great beers, and even offered us a small taste of a few to help us decide. I had an e-club coupon for free appetizer, so we ordered the spinach artichoke dip. It came with "garlic toast points" and the whole thing was yummy. We each ordered a large pizza. Parents got half "Mighty Meat" and half "Thai Dye." Cucumber on pizza was definitely a departure for my Mom, but she loved it! And they allowed her to swap curry chicken for teriyaki chicken. Hubby and I had half "Kosmic Karma" (awesome) and half "Red Skin Potato." Crust was unusual and a little on the thick side, but it was still very good pizza.
We would most definitely return to this location when in town again. How happy for us that one is opening in our neck of the woods in Clearwater! Can't wait for them to open so we can sample more items on their creative menu.
