First before I start this review I want to say we usually have very pleasant experiences at Mellow Mushroom. Tonight was not one. It started off by our host skipping us, and having another customer tell them that we were there first. Once we were seated, we ordered food and proceeded to wait over an hour for our food. I understand being busy but this just seemed much longer than usual. During this time our waiter was very inattentive, didn't provide much of a status on our food, didn't fill our drinks up and left our appetizer plate on the table the entire time. By the time we got our pizza it was cold and tasted disgusting. We told our waiter and he waived the pizza, made us pay for our app, but it would have been nice if the manager would have talked to us. I would recommend any other Mellow Mushroom, but we will never support this particular one again.

Ate there tonight for a friend's birthday. After being there an hour and a half we still didn't have our food. Half the party had to leave. The folks that stayed finally got their pizza and it was cold. They took it back to warm it up and brought it back burnt. Unfortunately I won't be returning anytime soon.

The pretzel starters were amazing! The bread is fluffy and seasoned delciously. My husbands calzone was also really good, like I said, the dough is great. My hoagie however was cold barely had chicken on it, and the bread tasted almost stale.

I am wavering between 2 and 3 stars. Pizza, was just okay - if you factor in the price, it was less than okay. Crust was too mushy for my taste (my standard is NY crust) and the extra toppings that I paid for were really skimpy. All things considered, though, it was a decent pizza. The thing that killed it for me was watching the prep cook - with a very full (but, attractive) UNCOVERED beard - hovering over my pizza. Not for nothing, but the vision of beard hairs in my pizza took some of the pleasure out of eating it.

So i went to mellow mushroom today. my friend got there before us and ordered her food. She said it took forever for the food to come and it was cold. The tea was unsatisfactory . i texted her before i knew all this put my order in an hour before i got there. Got seated and there was no drinks we ordered and no food. So we sat and waited. Still nothing so then my husband. Gets up and asks someone about the food. So then about 30 mins later its comes. My pizza was given to me in a TO-GO BOX and so was my husbands food.... Then my friend gets her check and it says that shes being charged $1 for the pepperoni on her pizza. I will say it was a terrible experience and we only seen our waiter twice through the whole time.

We waited 20 minutes to be able to order, which would have been longer if we didn't flag down another waiter. We ordered the spinach dip to share, which we hoped would come soon. However, it took them 40 minutes to bring it to us after we ordered it. You need to hire more people. I don't plan on ever going back.

Love love love the gluten free pizza!!! I recently had a party here and called a week in advance to let them know how many were coming. I called the morning of to remind them! Got there 20 mins early and by the time my entire part arrived (24 people) we were ALL waiting in the front entrance because my room was not ready! It is a small lobby and we were very frustrated. They did not seat us until 30 mins after I had booked the room. I was given the run around, told they were cleaning the room but found out they had put another small party in that room 50 mins before my party. I understand other people have parties or gatherings there but you need to be better prepared and not book 2 parties so close together. The waiter was awesome and worked hard! I'm very disappointed on how we all had to just stand in the lobby, blocking others, being stared at like morons and waited way past the time I had booked the room. I had people from out of town coming to get together for this. I didn't want them to have a bad experience
