This is not your typical fast food pizza place. They have amazing gourmet pizza with a multitude of different fresh toppings and combinations. You have to try the pretzels with the beer cheese dip, Yum!!

Visited this place off the USC campus. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service. Ordered pizza and it was delicious. Service was excellent as well. Would gladly go back next time.

My Granddaughter requested to have her 7th birthday party/meal here, and I will say that everyone had a great time. The pretzels, salad and pizza were all delicious, and they just keep bringing us drink refills without us asking. This is the best service I had gotten in recent memory, and that's saying something, since there were about 15 of... More

Mellow Mushroom is more about the experience and the attitude than it is the food. The Mellow Mushroom in Columbia is housed in a turn of the century (late 1800's) building. It's decorated in a funky look. The stairs are really steep to the upper floor and parking is usually a challenge due to the location being in the Vista,... More

If you can't find a pizza you like at this establishment, may I suggest sushi. All sorts of choices and the slices are very large. First time here from Chicago with USC South Carolina Girl and family. Service was good. Limited seating - worth the wait.

I had an amazing lunch here on Friday! I hadn't been to a Mellow Mushroom in a few years and was excited to go on this trip. The beer selection was great, as expected. We ordered the Mellowterranean (tofu instead of chicken) and the House Special pizzas, which couldn't be more different, and both were incredible. Our server, Michelle, was... More
