We sat outside with our pups and had some great pizza. The small pizza size is perfect for one person and the service was really great. We were attended to very well and it was pleasant overall. The outdoor seating is ideal and it was...More

We were a group of 13 on a Friday night so we weren't surprised to have a long wait. We hung out at the bar for a while and finally decided to order pizzas to take back to our hotel. The pretzels and cheese sauce...More

Thank goodness for us that they were open late. They were very busy, but still manage to get our pizzas in a fair time. Our waiter was patient with all the students ordering. The food was fabulous!

We were here on Super Bowl Sunday 2017. Everything was fine - but nothing was special about it. We enjoyed the game - but felt like we needed to keep ordering food - not just drinks. We will go again - but not on an...More

I have eaten at a couple Mellow Mushroom's in the past and found that this MM was far better than the others, pizza was surprisingly good. Service was okay, just very slow.

Thank you so much for the compliment! We are working hard at revamping parts of our restaurant so that we can speed up that service so you can have speed as well as our sweet smiling servers!

Server was nice enough .. brought my sons pizza ten minutes before I got mine. ... he was finished. Food was okay. Not impressed enough to come back but not unimpressed enough to actually complain.

We are so sorry about that Roxanna. We are currently changing around some of kitchen staff as well as management in the kitchen to help prevent anything like this from happening in the future!

Great selection of foods and toppings. I was able to try two different beers while there. They had local Athens beers on tap- which is awesome.

Usually love this chain's food and unusual variety of pizzas with good burgers. Mellow Mushrooms have a laid-back environment, but this place was ridiculously slow. Crowded when we arrived but most people were leaving. One person ordered pizza and it finally arrived 35 minutes later....More
