Great salad and dessert. Pizza was ok - crust great but tomato sauce was bland. Service was good. Would go again but I would try a sandwich

Average food, slow, slow, slow service. Can't believe it takes 50 minutes to bake a pizza. Pricey for what you get

Restaurant/bar seems to be living off their hippie California pizza reputation. My Caesar salad w/ grilled chicken was pretty wilted with minimum ingredients besides the grocery store romaine and soft croutons. My wife got an over priced four slice pizza with a lot of chewy...More

Sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the food and vibe. Every Mellow Mushroom follows in the footsteps of the original Atlanta, GA location with one of a kind pizza dough, and an original Mellow atmosphere. Jason M GM

Lunch Special of all you can eat pizza slices, salad and soup for $8.99 sounds good. But, apparently they cook each slice of pizza separately. Soup and salad were long gone before we saw a slice of pizza. Made the mistake of ordering a second...More

I dont know that I would have a rehearsal dinner there. It is one big open space with a bar in the middle and can be pretty loud. I dont think they have an area that can be closed off for a private event
