Ordered a pizza for pickup. I arrived early but the pizza was cold. It looked like it was made a few days before. Cheese fell off of the slice when I picked it up, and looked practically inedible. Asked for a refund, which they gave me, but not before the manager made sure to make a sassy remark to me and my girlfriend, despite the fact that I was about as calm as humanly possible about the whole thing. The whole try hard stoner vibe doesn't work, and neither do the employees. Who the hell wears a denim vest to work? So yeah, maybe it's good if you get a few beers along with it, but 20 bucks for a cold cheese pizza just isn't worth it.

It is lunch time on a gloomy Sunday afternoon when I enter denton's prestigious Mellow Mushroom location. We are immediately seated and informed by our waitress that the kitchen is currently staffed by one employee. The lone martyr, waiting to be crucified by the flood of customers. And indeed, he was. As I waited I read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" to lift my spirits during this trial. One hour later, our single pizza arrived in all of it's glory, and I must say it was delicious. I admired the attempt to make up the wait time with complimentary desserts, but even the tiny shared key lime pie could not heal the pangs of hunger that our table suffered. The staff were all very kind, but there is no excuse for an understaffed restaurant of this size during the lunch hour. TLDR: long wait time

I have been to the restaurant once before, and it was good. I had a rough week, so I decided to treat myself to some delivery. I knew it was expensive, but it was also supposed to be good. It wasn't. The delivery took a little over an hour. My bill was $44, so I handed the driver a $50. He said "thanks man," pocketed the $50, and didn't even hint about giving me any change back. The delivery charge was already $5, but I let it go because I thought I was getting great food. I thought wrong. The pizza was not only stone cold, but the steak they used on the pizza either had small stones or pieces of bone in it, and the crust had a similar texture to rubber. The spinach & artichoke dip was also cold, but ok. I could tell the bread that came with it had been left sitting for a while before being delivered. The dessert was pretty good. Over all, it was not worth the price whatsoever.

Way too expensive considering how mediocre the pizza was. Seriously, the lackluster stuff served at Cici's and Pizza Patron are superior to this. Plus, the service was super-slow and my order did not arrive at my table as I ordered it. I don't know how this place stays in business considering how pricey and inefficient it is.

Really pleased with our food. Customer service was superb. Had small problem with order, and the GM took care of it immediately! Very nice establishment. Levon was GREAT!

Love this place- Been about 6 times. I suggest the Holy Shiitake Pizza, or mushroom soup with a side of cheese bread to dunk. I am an illustrator and have on several occasions sat in a booth with friends doodling for several hours- the workers were always courteous and told us we could stay as long as we liked.

Love Mellow Mushroom. Good beer selection and great pizza and fun decor. Makes me reminisce about Athens, GA.
