Interesting selection of pizzas are available. Various fruit, vegetable, and meat combinations are available. If you like microbrewed beer, they have a nice selection. Be prepared to spend much more than you would at an average pizza place. This isn't a pizza joint to take the junior high basketball team for a celebration.

Have eaten at many of the Mellow Mushrooms in TN, AL and GA. Husband and I decided to stop by the Athens Mushroom for late lunch @ 1:30pm while on our way home from South Carolina. We were quickly seated and we waited and waited and.......until twenty minutes later one of the waiters noticed we had not been waited on and rushed over. We weren't sitting in his area of responsibility but he took it upon himself to wait on us and apologize for the slow service. after taking our order we watched him approach the guy that was supposed to have been waiting on us to make sure it was ok for him to wait on us. Long story short if not for this one young man by the name of Frank we would have walked out. Everyone else that was working on the floor that day seemed too busy taking and socializing with other staff members or their cell phones to not see the customers............except Frank. Have no idea who was in charge of the staff this day but may they need to have refresher class on how to wait on customers. The pizza was good once we got it ordered.

The pizza here is AWESOME, but it is pricey (for pizza), and because the place is always packed, you wait forever on the food to arrive. They used to have a location on Milledge that was always empty (probably why it closed) that I preferred to the downtown location.

I was in town for a large statewide-citywide conference. I stopped in to get a slice of pizza....thinking how long could this take??? Well about an hour just to get the pizza! I had to ask for a straw 3 times and had to get up and go get a napkin. It was disappointing that this restaurant wasn't more prepared. While there were a few hundred people in town for the conference, it is no comparison to the number of people there on a football Saturday. Staff needs to be trained on how to handle busy times. They certainly should have basic restaurant skills like 'do not' adjust your ponytail while you are standing over food you are about to deliver to a table! The bartender did that! Not sure I will return to this location when there is a lot going on in the area.
