I love everything about this restaurant! The 70's sort of psychedelic decor to the amazing food. It has something for everyone, and the design your own salad option is perfect for picky eaters. I have a picky eater and a pescetarian and both can easily find something they love here. The staff are friendly and it is in a good... More

Visited the restaurant on a drizzly Saturday night while visiting our daughter. You seat yourself in the fairly spacious - but apparently frequently crowded - location and wait for your server. We were assisted almost immediately and enjoyed being able to order a pie that was half meat lovers/half vegan. The pizzas do take a bit of time - allow... More

This place has great Pizza and is one of the few places that is very welcoming to Gluten free, or Vegetarian, or vegans. We had a variety of food and found it and the service excellent. Because the location is close to campus, we paid to park in the nearby Parking lot.

We stopped here to watch a UVA basketball game and it was a great option. There was plenty of room in the restaurant and the atmosphere is very laid back. The pizza was very good, we got the house pizza and a pitcher of beer. Pretty good selection.

If you love a flavorful pizza, lots of topping choices, and a delicious crisp on the outside chewy on the inside crust, Mellow Mushroom is the place for you. Ramp up the "healthy" factor with a side salad--the spinach with bacon, mushroom, and parmesan is delicious. And the meatball trio appetizer which sports fresh basil is an absolute must try!...

Ok service for it being not busy. Food was great really pretty plating. Wings are amazing with a deep flavor and unique sauces. Chicken steak was a good size with fresh ingredients. Calzone was fresh made with fresh ingredients and lovely presentation. Wonderful stop in pizza joint

My daughter and I ordered 2 small pizzas. She got the magical mystery tour without jalapeños and loved it!! Very different with pesto and great tasting mushrooms. I got the mighty meaty and it was perfect with bacon, ham, sausage, beef and pepperoni! Very casual but nice seating with lots of room. The restaurant was decorated like the 60s 70s... More

We first ate at a Mellow Mushroom in Charleston, SC, not realizing there was more than one. We were so happy when we found out they existed across the south! So when we were in Charlottesville and found there was one here, we had to eat there. We had the pretzel appetizer, which was amazing, and then split a veggie... More

We went here with a large group and the staff was great at keeping on top of everything. Kids and adults were happy with plenty of options from plain pizza to great sandwiches. If you want something simple, you can have that...or be adventurous. Lots of TVs if you want to watch a game while you're there.
