We were staying close by at a hotel and just needed a quick bite after a long day of touring UVA. My feet could not take anymore so we opted for Mellow Mushroom and had no regrets. I ordered the mushroom pizza, because, well the place is named Mellow Mushroom. I was not disappointed and I'm known for having discerning... More

In town for a college visit and famished after a morning touring campus. We had the pretzel bites and the house special pizza. Delicious! Nourished us for the several hour drive to the next stop on our spring break college tour! Service was friendly.

We ordered one of the specialty pizzas. It was excellent and very filling. It did take quite a while for our order to be completed. Staff was friendly.

The pretzel bites, though. Yum (not really pretzel bites, more pizza dough) with off the chain beer cheese. Buffalo chicken pizza

We eat here every visit to Charlottesville. It's right beside of the Graduate Hotel.So it's very convenient if you're staying there. They're open late too for those late night cravings. We always get pizza & the spinach dip appetizer. The best Spinach dip I've ever had.Service is usually pretty quick even though they stay quite busy.

This was an interesting experience. We visited as out of towners looking for restaurants different from what we have. This was different. Decorated very...colorful. Just what you'd think a "mellow mushroom" would be. Very 70's/hippie. Anyway, the food was good! Service was fantastic...very attentive and friendly. We ordered pretzel bites which were really pizza dough bites. They had a lot... More

Can't speak about the pizza, (but I hear it's yummy), but the draft selection is topnotch, Full sheet of every type of beer from Ale, to stout to seasonal to ciders. And on Tuesdays it's $2 pint night!

I have eaten at a few other MM's in other towns, so knew what to expect. The food and service was great, as usual. We had salads, individual pizzas and beer. My wife, newbie, was surprised how good the salads were and the pizza exceeded her expectations. Only issue with this location is size. While we waited for a table... More
