Went for lunch and shared bruchetta and spinach/artichoke dip. Nice and hot and the service from Marianne was just right. Went a couple of nights later,wanted a simple great tasting meal and we got it! Ordered a small pizza and a salad to share with my husband. Great homemade crust and fresh ingredients and the Greek style salad was a winner too! Very good service once again. They always looked extremely busy, but with seating indoors and outside they didn't miss a beat!

Good pizza with great topping choices. Should be called the Magic Mushroom- very trippy décor, kids found it fascinating, but they were too young to understand the nature of the décor (4 and 6). If I took a teen there, I would have felt like it was glorifying getting high. Mixed crowd, lots of families with little kids, families with teen kids, adult individuals. Some people seemed conservative while others had very colorful hair, piercings, tattoos, and other things I would never have imagined. If you're open, you'll love it. If you're looking for traditional, get your pizza to go.

We had a large group of 35 to dinner on a Saturday. We arrived at 6:15 to find we had been beaten there by another group of 35 and a group of 50! We decided to wait and were rewarded by fabulous service. I don't recall the two servers names, but they did a fabulous job taking care of us outside, in the drizzling rain. The waiter was even nice enough to swap our tables umbrella with another unused tables umbrella, which was larger. Everyone's food was great and everyone enjoyed themselves. Highly recommend!

The food was good. We had one of their hoagies and a salad. Their outdoor seating is large and plenty of umbrellas for hot or rainy weather. Lots of interesting decorations inside and out. Service was good. Great place to people watch!

A friend of the family recommended we visit the Mellow Mushroom. On our last day in Asheville, we made it a point to find the restaurant. I'm glad we did. The place was packed, yet the service was fantastic. My husband had the pizza and I tried the cheesesteak. They were both very good. The pizza was exceptional. I ended up eating it cold for breakfast the following morning. The place has a fun, unique atmosphere. Prices are good for a tourist town. Definitely visit when in Asheville. Although it is a chain, so there are others in the South.
