Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Waited for a table for only 20 minutes - grabbed a beer at the bar and the table was ready - not bad. When we got to the table, we placed our order and waited over an hour for 3 small pizzas. This gave us plenty of time to use the restroom (which... More

Usually love this chain's food and unusual variety of pizzas with good burgers. Mellow Mushrooms have a laid-back environment, but this place was ridiculously slow. Crowded when we arrived but most people were leaving. One person ordered pizza and it finally arrived 35 minutes later. Two of us ordered medium-rare burgers. Burgers arrived after the pizza eater had FINISHED eating.... More

Hi Deb, we cannot apologize enough for your visit with us. After your comment we reviewed who was on staff and coached the people in question to make sure they understand what is expected from them. We have also revamped the way we get conference agendas to better prepare for the rush of the groups so in the future we... More

My friend and I went here and it took longer than a half hour to get a pretzel appetizer. We then waited a very long time for our small pizza. The atmosphere was great and food was good but just wish it was a little faster.

We visited here with our adult kids. There was a 20-minute wait, but it was worth it. We felt very comfortable there.

Let me start by saying that this has been a go-to restaurant for us in the past when we were in the mood for pizza. Tonight, though, was the worst service we're received in any restaurant in years. After being seated, we didn't see menus - much less drinks - for 20 minutes or so. As service ground to a... More

you'll like this place more than I do. Its a chain. Been to a few of them. Evacuated from hurricane and had dog. We were able to get a table on their little narrow sidewalk area that was fenced in. Options were limited if you are asking why I'd go if I hate their crust. Great beer options. And we... More

I'll start that the food is always up to par with other Mellows. Which means it's always great. However, this mellow is consistent in that the service always manages to suck. For instance, the 2nd to last time we went, we waited for 20 minutes between when the hostess sat us and when the server got our drinks. Last night,... More

We were a little hesitant to try our MM since it's move from Lumpkin Street. While from the outside it looks very "chain" and inside feels very "chain" - the flavors are consistently excellent with what we knew from their previous location years ago. We enjoyed watching the pizza makers hand toss dough and our pizza was cooked perfectly. The... More
