My whole family enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. The service was great and the pizza was excellent. We got the pretzels with beer cheese dipping sauce as an appetizer and I was surprised at how much we all liked it. They use a different type of breading with a slightly brown color. It was delicious.

Ever since we discovered this restaurant, we visit it on each of our trips to Gatlinburg. We own a cabin and therefore visit the are approximately 3 times per year and this restaurant is always on our list. The spinach dip is excellent. The ambiance is colorful and joyful and the pizzas are very good. We would definitely recommend it.

First off, to address the title of "prob one of the better places to eat in Gatlinburg" is because we've eat at so many places that the food or service was "crap" and Mellow Mushroom there has always been consistently good. We've just gotten tired of having to wait an hour for food at other places and it only be 'so so" and overpriced. So that's one of the reasons we always eat at Mellow Mushroom when in town on vacation.

The food is good, just like any Mellow Mushroom. The beer selection is decent also. (They have Fat Tire microbrew on tap, which is a favorite of mine. )

The restaurant is located on the main strip in town. There is a parking garage under it, with an elevator up (important for older folks, etc). Parking has ranged from $6 to $10 different times we've parked in it. (Parking garage entrance is just east of the restaurant and is hard to see. It exits out on River Road. You pay when you enter and the machine takes credit cards).

We've always been happy with waitstaff service also. As a note when you check in, they take your cell phone number and call you when your seat is ready. That's nice as you can wander around the general area instead of having to sit and wait.

Menu is the same as about any Mellow Mushroom you've been to. (check their website for menu. )

Overall this is just a good place to eat pizza with good service and fair prices.

This place has the best selection of pizza (and some of the most creative combinations of toppings) I've seen anywhere. It's quite friendly to people with dietary restrictions and is, frankly, downright delicious.

We didn't want to eat at a chain restaurant but found ourselves hungry & in front of Mellow Mushroom. I'm glad we tried it because the food was great & prices were much less than expected for a tourist area.

I had the stuffed portobello mushroom (feta, artichokes, sundries tomatoes under melted cheese over greens and drizzled with balsamic reduction), my daughter had a cheese French bread pizza & my husband had a meatball hoagies. The food was DELICIOUS, the service was good, people watching was fun & our bill was only $25 (with drinks & without coupons).

We will definitely eat here again.
