The pizza here an not only excellent quality and taste but is very imaginative in its creation. This is some of the best pizza I've ever eaten!

Great place for lunch. Quiet, clean, friendly wait staff. Food is delicious. Very generous portions...great to box and go to enjoy later. Pizza is hot and satisfying. Garlic bread is toasted just right and served with great marinara sauce. The salads are wonderful and filling. If you have to have pizza and salad...just mellow out and eat at Mellow Mushroom!

The pizzas are wonderful. their pizza dough is half wheat flour and they offer gluten-free crust. The toppings are different from most places as they are more Greek offerings. Their wide variety of appetizers are good. Try the meatballs and the Capri salad. The kids choices are outstanding. Many tv screens and table-top TV's for kids. The pizzas are well... More

Food here is great service is another matter. Every time we have eaten here there has been some issue, didn't bring salad at all, brought salad after meal was finished, sat for 10 minutes with empty glass trying to get refill while 4 servers stood st one table together listening to and dancing to the music.

We stopped at Mellow Mushroom and got salads to go for dinner. Weird place, they were playing poker at several tables. Sort of a 1960s hippie décor, large mushroom decorations hanging around in a not-very-subtle allusion to psychedelic mushrooms. The basic interior is pretty austere. Pizza is apparently a big deal here, but this is more of a bar than... More

We enjoyed this local, funky hangout located in a strip center. The atmosphere was fun -with mushrooms coming out of the walls, a psychedelic color scheme and even personal TVS at the booths! The waitstaff were personable and friendly and gave good service. We enjoyed the Pepperoni, the Margarita and the Holy Shitake Pie!!!VERY TASTY!!

We went during happy hour and drinks were half off...I think appetizers were as well. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful, the drinks and all the (4 of us) choice foods were very good....can't go wrong.

We began from humble roots, founded by three college students in the free-wheelin' hippy culture of the 1970s. They wanted to open a restaurant that reflected their eccentric philosophies, progressive values and above all serve a high quality slice of pizza. What started as a hole in the wall pizza place with lots of hippy culture, has evolved to a collection of almost 150 restaurants in 18 states. Mellow is a highly experiential concept - no two locations are alike. Every restaurant has a unique décor with a custom designed art package featuring the work of local artists and unique local flavor, down to locally brewed beers and local menu specialties. Even today, as Mellows continue sprouting up all over the country, our mission remains the same: to provide you with an experience filled with colorful art, eclectic music, craft beer and food that comforts your soul.
