“Way overpriced, but not too bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

OK, first thing, the small gluten free pizza cost us $22. We ordered it with (I think) 5 ingredients. You can get a large just about anything, almost anywhere else for that much money! So, we ordered the pizza and the club sandwich. 20 minutes later, the pizza arrived. At the 30 minute mark, the sandwich arrived. But, the sandwich was wrong. We received an Italian sandwich instead. So, after another wait of less than 10 more minutes the correct sandwich arrived. They gave us the extra sandwich for free, that is to take home.

The service was actually pretty good. Our waiter stayed on top of everything. Attentive and very pleasant. Drinks were refilled often.

In sum, the food is OK, service above average, interior decor is pleasant/clean. Good place for couples or families. Parking is a problem. Not enough of it. Plan to arrive early.

“Always a hit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We've dined here many times and always leave well pleased. They have a huge selection of beer and quite an extensive menu. Their salads are quite generous and always tasty as well as their soups. The pizzas are always inventive and flavorful. We first thought this was a kiddie place but have found that they have something for every age group. They leave the other pizza restaurants in the dust. You can't go wrong at Mellow Mushroom!

“Not your ordinary pizza joint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

The BEST pizza in town! Love the atmosphere as well as the food. The waitstaff is second to none! Very friendly and knowledgeable about their menu and history! The manager stopped by our booth and was so welcoming! We have only had the pizza there - oh and their awesome soft pretzels with the beer cheese - but just from peeking at other meals as they were being served, everything looked yummy! Great place to dine!

“Good Pizza, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Everyone is a little sensitive about their favorite pizza. I am no exception. The specialty pizzas at Mellow Mushroom are outstanding. Really yummy crust, full measure of ingredients, well cooked. The service was fast, and they have a great beer selection. I will go back!

“Take-out Okay, Not As Good As In-restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

On a Sunday night after Christmas, I ordered the House Special pizza to take back to my hotel room. Grant it, take-out is never as good as what you can have delivered hot to your table in the restaurant. This one was definitely better than take-out pizzas I've had from other Destin restaurants, but still not as good as take-outs I've gotten at other Mellow Mushroom locations (which makes me wonder if the in-house is as good as other Mellow Mushroom locations I frequent).
