I've never given a bad review on Trip Advisor so I'm hoping this reaches management...I've been to the Lone Tree location & it was excellent! This one on 16th street, not so much. We were here on a Sunday & it was barely full which should have been an indication. After waiting 10 minutes to get acknowledged & seated, we... More

We stopped in after a symphony. The Magical Mystery Tour pizza was delicious. We enjoyed relaxing with a beer and people watching.

We had the jerk wings and the Ive's hoagie which was amazing, oh my gee the food was very fresh and very flavorful. I also tried the banana pudding, not as good as my own (lol), but extremely close, very good find.

Had some takeout from Mellow Mushroom while staying in downtown Denver. The pizza was pretty good, but they don't quite stand up to the competition over in Larimer Square. There is definitely room for improvement, specifically for take out. The cheese was congealed and greasy after the 4 minute walk back to our room. The bread with our artichoke dip... More

Our flight arrived late in Denver and most places were packed at 10pm on a Friday night. This place was actually really empty, the food came in about 15-20 minutes, and it was good! Amazing? No. But it satisfied our hanger!

Right on the 16th Street Mall, this location is in the middle of all the excitement. It is a large location, so plenty of places to sit if you have a larger group. They also have outside seating. The food was very tasty and they have lots of beers on tap.

Mellow Mushroom is a groovy pizza joint that has a psychedelic 1960's vibe. I loved the art mural on the wall by our table... This place has a great bar, and the best food. They really have the best pizza- my husband said his was the best pizza he has ever had, and I had a delicious vegan pizza custom... More
