“Awesome Pizza, expensive compared to the competition.”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

I love the pizza here. There are some very unique sauce and topping combos available which make for some of the best pizza around. What really seals the deal though is the amazing crust. Mellow Mushroom has the best crust available in my book. Don't come to eat here if you are in a hurry! The pizza takes a while to come to the table, but it is worth the wait! The only negative is the price point. I would eat here more frequently if the prices were more reasonable, but since they are too high, we only come here to eat once in a great while.

Parking is a nightmare. It's conveniently located in downtown Greenviille which is good for business but a challenge for the customer. Pizza and appetizers are OK but overpriced. Usually busy so plan to eat early.

“Always good”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Mellow Mushroom is consistent. I have to wait every time, because every else knows it's goo, just like me. Great beer selection, great pizzas (unique flavors) and a funky atmosphere make it a great place to come downtown for.

“A great effort by the staff.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Took our visitors from Boston to the Mellow Mushroom specifically for the gluten free pizza. Our young guests from Boston (Avery & Charlotte Ross) were devastated when our friendly waiter broke the bad news that they had just run out of the gluten free dough. He summoned the manager to explain and try to temper our disappointment. While he was apologizing he asked if we would consider chicken fingers (not even on the menu yet) in a special gluten free breading, served with apple slices. This more than satisfied the young ladies and the smiles returned. The adults ordered a pizza and the service was prompt, the food delicious and the service continued to impress. I stopped a lady that was apparently employed there and asked for a bottle of ketchup the girls had requested for the chicken fingers. She immediately replied "no we don't have ketchup" but did note "wow, we have chicken fingers?" At the same time our most attentive waiter was passing by and I asked him if he knew where the secret ketchup stash was. My man went to the restaurant downstairs and borrowed a bottle from them! To top it off the chicken fingers were on the house as were all of the beverages. A generous tip was left. If you're in the mood for good pizza and a fun restaurant while you are enjoying beautiful downtown Greenville be sure to stop in the 'Shroom!

“Slow Service, Good Pizza”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Service was really slow. This location is an old building in historic downtown Greenville. It has a warehouse feel to it.

The pizza is good.
