A funky fun place. I would have never thought pizza would be review worthy. The fresh homemade crust is the best.We had the Shitaki Pizza.A huge beer list with a big selection of Micro brews.A must do in Charleston!

“Greasy "pie" in vapid junkie atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

I was grossed out by the loud grungy music with out of tune vocals, ugly paintings, explicit junkie references in menu, and dirty bathroom.

Food was rich in taste but way too fat - enough to give you a gastric attack.

They have pizzas but they call them "pies".

Again, we want to apologize that your Mellow experience was not up to our usual standards and we hope that you'll give us another try!

“Surprisingly Good - A True Hidden Gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

I admit that going into this restaurant was all my wife's idea. I really hate mushrooms so I guess I have a subconscious aversion to the name alone... But anything to have a happy wife.

We started off with the pretzels appetizer. They were baked perfectly - the dough was very soft and tasted far beyond my expectations. Great seasoning and dipping sauce!

I opted for a "hoagie." I quote it because of the different regional names these have - where I'm from they are called "subs". Anyway the Turkey & Cheese was the recommended pick so I went with that.

First impression was 'holy @#$@' that's a big sandwich. I mean really for $10 that was one huge hoagie. An amazing value and I had not even taken a bite yet!

It included bacon, peppers and even cucumbers. The cucumbers added an entirely new dimension in both texture and flavor. Overall it was just a well built, well thought out sandwich. I remember thinking that the items picked out for this were great choices (fresh, flavorful, colorful) and played off each other very well.

My wife had one of their pizzas and she absolutely loved it as well.

Don't be fooled by the outward appearance of this location, it is worth the venture in and my only regret is that they don't have one of these locations closer to home.

“Don't overestimate the cooks, I'm surprised they can boil water.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

I've had problems here before but my friends wanted pizza so I gave in. I'm lactose intolerant so I thought I'd get the wings...who can mess up wings? These guys can.... the wings were so overcooked I had to force them down cuz I was so hungry and it took long enough to get them I couldn't wait anymore. I don't like to generalize because I'm sure they have some good employees, but whoever was in the kitchen on 2/9/14 needs some additional training. If you must go to mellow mushroom stick to pizza because that's all they can cook.

“Awesome pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

After eating fancy meals while in Charleston, my husband and I were craving pizza for lunch. We stumbled into Mellow Mushroom while walking on King Street. It did not disappoint. The crust was so soft and crusty. Really good pizza and reasonably priced. Definitely a college hangout. I would recommend.
