“Fun Place in Louisville.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We've eaten here twice while visiting Louisville. The first time was in June 2013. The food selection is very good and the beer selection is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful, even on a night when every table was taken. The atmosphere is enjoyable even on a very warm night.

Our second time was take-out in August as we were staying with family. Not so good. the Chicken Calzone had no chicken and way too much cheese as the order must have been taken wrong on the phone after repeating it twice. The pizza was so-so.

Restaurant take-out can be hit or miss sometimes and we'll give them a pass on this one because of such a great time we had on the first visit.

We'll be back.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Went in for lunch about 1pm during the week and it was super busy. We were seated right away and got our drinks quickly. We ordered the "tomato caprice" for about $6. Very disappointed. We received 5 very uneven slightly unripe tomato slices, one of which was not cored, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and torn apart mozz cheese. Do they know what caprice means? Pizza was really good. Got the buffalo chicken. Crust was really good and they used fresh cheese.

“Great pizza and very accommodating to food allergies.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at a mellow mushroom in TN before but hadnt tried the ones they opened locally until a few months ago. The pizza was excellent. Our kids has several food allergies and the server was fantastic. We didn't even ask for them to do certain things she just heard us say that our son is allergic to dairy so she even had a piece of our appetizer made without cheese so that he could enjoy a piece too. The only downfall is mellow mushroom is a little pricey.

“Long wait!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Have eaten there several times and I must say the pizza is fantastic! Not your ordinary pizza by any means. I very much recommend going there and trying all they have to offer. Just a heads up that their carry out time frame is not accurate at all. First, the time quoted was 45 minutes (which seems like a long time to begin with) and when we got there after 45 minutes we still had to wait another 25 minutes for our order. A suggestion if you live close by is to call before you go to see if their lead time is accurate.

Do go and do enjoy the pizza!

“Best craft beer selection in Louisville!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

If you're a fan of craft beers - both locally and internationally - then you'll need to visit Mellow Mushroom on Shelbyville Road in Louisville. With a selection of beers from everywhere, a friendly, cozy atmosphere, knowledgeable servers - and a menu full of unusual pizza combinations, you just can't miss.

The Mushroom feels like that local place you know, no matter where you come from. And the food variety hits almost every taste - from vegetarian to omnivore. It's my local favorite for a casual, fun evening with friends.
