Spent a Sunday afternoon leisurely strolling the sidewalks of Carytown and needed a spot for lunch. We saw a good number of people dining at the Mellow Mushroom and thought we’d give it a try. We were promptly greeted at the front door by a friendly guy who let us browse the menu and then a few minutes later showed us to a booth. Our waiter, who we described as mellow, was exactly that. He was okay; super laid back in a mild kind of surfer dude way. We ordered two cheese pizzas; one small cheese and one gluten-free cheese, as well as a small Caesar and Greek salad. The salads arrived a bit longer than I felt they should have. Super hungry and ready to devour, I found my Greek salad to be a bowl full of poor quality lettuce, which looked unappetizing. I tried to dig around to find the fresher pieces. With peak fresh veggie season going on, I expected to find red, ripe juicy tomatoes other than the two pale quarter sized slices topping my salad. For some reason, the fresh factor of the Caesar salad better than the Greek. The pizzas arrived, but once again a disappointment. The GF was super thin with a crunchy edge, but when trying to pick up a slice it was so limp it drooped in my hand. The regular pizza looked good, with a nice thick crust, but the taste was comparable to a frozen pizza. We left wishing we had dined elsewhere. I do have to give them a thumbs up for their spotless restrooms!
