“Pretty Good Food, Pretty Sad Service”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

OK, The Mellow Mushroom has pretty good pizza and you can get tons of different combinations. The question is whether or not you will ever actually get it. We were here on a busy Saturday evening and the kitchen was so unorginized that it literally took over an hour to start getting our order, of course it was an hour and a half before everyone finally got what they had ordered. One person at our table waited over 15 minutes for a fork......

“A nice break from unhealthy food when you are on a road trip”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

The healthy food was a welcome change over the kind of stuff you end up getting on a road trip. The decor was great: vivid colors, a fish tank, whimsical murals, and of course a giant plastic mushroom! ... As I have now discovered, there are more than one Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers in the south. We enjoyed it immenesly! The food was all good, the service, the drinks regualr and (alcoholic). We even returned that same evening for Trivia night, beer and had more fun!

“Good food with a different take on local pizza, at a price.”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

The food is good, the dough is good. Good selection of toppings. Service was good. Large selection of beer, seems more of a bar setting. However, i felt I didn't fit in since I wasn't wearing a hemp necklace.

“So So”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

Appetizer was very good, Spinach Dip. The pizza was fair. Would probably eat here again if someone else wanted to, but I would not suggest it.
