The food was delicious! We stopped in for an appetizer and pizza. We had the avocado smash and bruschetta app and the fresh flavors popped! The pizza was delicious! We also had the spicy peach margarita’s and they were strong, refreshing with a little bite....Soo good. Jillian was our server and was so friendly and gave us advice on more places to check out. Great live music too! I highly recommend this place.More

Just the facts: -The waitress brought one appetizer and we asked about the second one. She had forgotten to turn it in. -The pizza bites were ordered with a cheese sauce upcharge. The cheese sauce was watery, tastless and ordinary. It would have been better...if it was melted Velveeta. We asked for some kind of red sauce since the cheese was so poorly made and she brought a ramekin of ok-pizza sauce (and an unknown up-charge for that too!) -She finally brought the artichoke/spinach dip. The artichokes were from a vinegar brine and undrained, so the dip had a sour taste. The bread slices were good. -A small pizza and house salad were ordered. The salad arrived 15 minutes before the pizza. It is covered in a handful of sliced black olives, a handful of sliced onions and a double handful of plastic cheese. The chunky blue cheese dressing had zero chunks and a sour taste like it was o-l-d. -The house speciality pizza looked like it had a serious twirl in a blender. It was doughy and browned. Which means too hot of temp and poor cooking. We asked for a little ranch dressing and got that (along with an unknown up-charge!) -We got one refill of drinks, but the empty glass sat there and was never offered to refill. -The bill came. I could have gone to a dismil Pizza Hut for 1/5th the price and had better food and a better server. NEVER AGAIN!More

Cant say exactly what it is but everything here is awesome. The staff is genuinely friendly. The food is spot on. Everything is delicious. I think they could make Vienna sausages taste good. Great beer choices, too. Highly recommend.

This is just great pizza and it’s near Vanderbilt We had the chief salad, house special pizza and the magic mushroom soup. This is the best mushroom soup , we have ever had! Of course, the salad and pizza were great. The atmosphere was very...interesting and our server, Tom did a good job.More

I just had the best pizza I've eaten in 20 years. I ate a Maui Wauwi and everything about it was spot on. The flavors, the texture, and the composition were perfect. The crust tasted wonderful and it wasnt oily at all. I dont throw...around accolades lightly and this pizza is GREAT. Clarksville does not have a single pizzaeria that can match it. The servers were very polite and kept up wonderfully but truthfully they could have been terrible with pizza that good! I will do my best to eat here everytime we come to Nashville.More

Any time we are in the vicinity of a mellow mushroom restaurant, the pizza is an absolute must! We like the Pacific Rim with jalapeños and pineapple but they have plenty of signature pizzas to chose from. They also have a Jack & Coke slushee...that is worth a try.More

Have been to other Mellow Mushroom around the country. This is just as good. An added plus was some good live music. Very nice location on the strip.

We were quickly seated (there were only 7 other people in the place) and it took over 10 minutes for the server to come take our drink order. I was disappointed they didn't have any stouts with the extensive beer list they had so I...had to order an IPA. My husband ordered the Tailgate Southeast IPA and the server brought him a Tailgate Mixed Berry Sour (which was pink in color). It then took another 10 minutes for the server to bring him the correct beer. When the correct beer finally arrived we placed our order. I had the cheeze calzone and my husband ordered a pizza, and we decided to split a side salad. After 30 minutes we still did not have our food so when it finally arrived (with the salad) we sent the salad back. We probably should have just gotten up and left while waiting for the food but we really didn't have anywhere to be so we just kept waiting. The food was good, however, but that did not make up for the horrible service we received. Like I said, there were only 7 other people in the place.More

Decided to try this place as they had gluten free pizza and everything smelt really good while walking by. Sat outside - warning, there are lots of flies around. Server came over right way and took our drink order then we waited way too long...to actually get the drinks. He did come back to take our food order - two meat pizzas, one gluten free. Waited a really long time for the food which was unceremoniously dropped by by another server who without a word walked away. It was clear that the GF pizza was not in fact GF. Took a while to get anyone's attention, but finally called over our waiter. He took one look at it and said it was not GF and took it away. No apology given. Spent the next 25 minutes swatting flies from the other pizza while we waited for mine to come out. Finally arrived, not really worth the wait. Average as GF pizza goes. The original mistaken pizza had a lot more toppings then the second one. The non GF pizza was the thin crust meat pizza and it was OK but they thought the crust was kind of bland - actually were debating if they got the GF by mistake, but was clear when mine came out that it was different. I did not make a stink about the order mix up, but was disappointed that not only was there no apology, but I would have thought they could have discounted a couple of dollars or offered a dessert. On the bill there was no mention of GF even though I had an discussion with the waiter prior to putting in the order and making it clear that is what I needed. Best part of lunch was the Rose Sangria.More

I sat at the bar for 20 minutes, tried to leave and was convinced to stay. Ordered and waited even longer. So much for the discount.
