Mellow Mushroom offers pizza, calzones, and some salads. Their pizza is nothing special but they do have pretty good calzones. They have gluten free crust. The restaurant has very cool decorations and is in a nice area.

These places always have a great environment inside. Pizza is very good with lots of different options, not usually put into pizza. Waiter was great and laid back.

Food was delicious and portions way larger than I anticipated. Being a visitor, I was told to try the muffuletta. I am in love. Our server, Erin I believe, was amazing. Very attentive and super sweet. Will return on my next visit! Kudos! đź‘Ť
