I could easily give this chain a 5 star rating, but I can't be dishonest with my followers. The pizza is absolutely 5 star rated and one of my favorites among any pizza joints. Tonight out service was dreadful. The server didn't care, wasn't even...More

Hands down the best veggie burger that I've ever had. We had a hard time deciding what to get; everything sounded so delicious!! I loved the art on the walls! Highly recommend eating here. Waitress was wonderful and the bathrooms were very clean.

The pizzas here are great, the calzones are good but not as great as the pizzas. The prices are fair, and the location is good!

Mellow Mushroom has one of the most unique crusts of any place I've ever visited. I used to just order the Mega Veggie pizza. But I found that there's way too much on it (which is probably a plus for most). So now I just...More

Thanks for the great review! The house Veggie or VegOut are great alternatives to the Mega Veggie and with only 6 veggies. Hope to see you again soon:)

Great place to dine in or pick up a pizza before a game. Wait staff is friendly. I cannot address but bar other than to stay they have fountain and can Coca-Cola products. The pizza is reasonably priced and quite good.
