There's always a crowd at Mellow Mushroom and once you've been, you know why! The first bite is a real "YUM" moment that makes you want more. Every bite just keeps getting better. I just wish there were more locations.

We needed a place that had food items that appealed to children and adults. Great menu selections from appetizers to meals. They had a chi ldren's menu that was easy to order from, items had pictures for those who couldn't read yet. Ordered hummus and pita bread to start, it was delicious.

We like going here on a sunny afternoon and eating on their patio. If you go on weekends or evenings, expect a wait because this is a very popular spot for coeds. Parking is available in their lot.

It gets very crowded, so I suggest you go as early as possible if you don't like crowds. We got a might meaty pizza and it was very good. They are a little pricey for a pizza, but it is so good!!

We've been to Mellow Mushroom several times since moving to the area, and we've gotten great food every time! Staff are friendly and helpful, are knowledgeable about food choices, and it's always clean. A great place for pizza and wings!

Back in November, 2016 we ordered about $250 of take-out pizzas and appetizers for a wedding/family reunion to bring back to the hotel for around 25 people. The food was ready on time, everyone loved the taste, and we had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. I loved the ease of the online ordering, since hanging with family... More

Well, Mellow Mushroom has a new menu. First of all, it's like a book without pictures, so it's much harder to find what you want and the lack of pictures doesn't allow for us with visual learning to see and help us make a decision. They also have removed items from the menu. I'm fairly sure they had two white... More

$26 for a large supreme pizza. Size is same as any other place. But toppings are a bit heavier. Dough is good. Tastes like honey has been added. Building is old but clean. Service is very slow. This is good pizza. But I won't come often because there are other good places and even better places for less $$$$$. Best... More

For 41 years, Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers has been serving up fresh, stone-baked pizzas to order in an eclectic, art-filled, and family-friendly environment.

Mellow Mushroom’s menu showcases natural flavors and the freshest of ingredients in a creative menu assortment of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones, appetizers and vegetarian and vegan options. Gluten free crust and a kids menu are also available. Mellow Mushroom is more than just awesome pizza and craft beer; it is a state of mind.
