The mellow mushroom has awesome pizza and a good selection of beers and wine. The crust on their pizzas is incredible. Try the pretzels for an appetizer, they are superb!

If your in the mood for delicious pizza and dont mind a little wait to get it this is definitely the place. Me and my girlfriend went last saturday during an NFL playoff game and while Vandy was in and still were seated within one minute

My experience with this place from the time we walked in the door to the moment i bit into the slice was complete and utter disappointment. We walked in the door and the host said for out carryout order go to the bar. Well one guy was on his cell phone texting and ignored us. The other guy tried to act like he was so busy putting glasses away under the bar that he didnt see us.

Never the less I was still optimistic about the pizza. it took awhile for it to get ready but dont good things come to those who wait. Hecks nawl. Open the pizza it looked wonderful. Tasted the pizza and I just wasnt feeling it. It had a MELLOW flavor that bordered on tasteless. I told my husband it tasted like healthy pizza and if i was trying to be healthy I wouldnt be eating a loaded pizza in the first place.

Do yourself a favor and skip the aggrevation, mediocre/poor service and the regret that you chose to eat there and waste 25 bucks on a boring pizza.

This has always been my favorite pizza place in Nashville. The mighty meaty has been my pie of choice. My family and I went there on 1/29 for an ealry celebration of my birthday. I don't know if they've cutback on toppings as a result of the poor economy or what, b ut the pizza was well below average compared to the high standard Mellow Mushroom had set for itself in the many previous visits. The mighty meaty seemed to turn into the a puny meat substitute. There was far less toppings, and the few toppings on the pizza were all in the center of the pizza so that no toppings were on the outside 3rd of the pizza. I won't say that I will never go back, because I have had many great experiences at this place prior to this poor experience. But, I will be a little reluctant to go next time, and I will probably only give it more more chance. I sure hope that they have not traded their quality for living off of their reputation.

Where else can you go and get Feta Cheese Pizza slices? No where in Nashville! I love the mellow mushroom for their food and interesting design elements. The crust is amazing and the toppings are generous and fresh. If you're looking for a deviation from the typical pizza chain, head to the mellow mushroom.

i'm pretty shocked to not see any red flags on this site about the service in this place. i've been to mellow mushroom probably 10ish times and each time i've had the most wretchedly slow service. from the hosts seating you (count on at least 20-30 mins to get to your table), to the waiters who are, at best slow, and at worst completely incompetent. i mean, the food is good, which is why i go back, but it's not so phenomenal that you should put up with awful service. on more than one occasion, we've left before we were seated after waiting a whole lunch break. dinner isn't much faster, either. if you have a three-hour meal to burn, are especially baked, or want to hang out for a while after you eat, this place is fine.

Pros: food is good (subs are yum), pizza is good for nashville

Cons: parking if you dont have a vandy sticker...oh and heinous service

This pizza was fantastic! Huge toppings, fresh made crust...nuff said. But be prepared for a crowd at dinner.

I love that they have a tofu hoagie for me to stuff myself with. The hoagies are very large. We also had a cheese pizza on the table that was pretty good too. The service was just ok, not as attentive as other places... it may have been a little busy, but not packed. My gf also commented that she had asked for a few things off her hoagie, so her hoagie was not as large.... she was hoping for more pepperoni or cheese instead of using lettuce as a filler to make the hoagie bigger.

I go to this place at least once a week, and I never get tired of the food. There is such a great selection, and its all sooooo good. Im a vegetarian, so its hard for me to find much around town thats really good. The Tempeh Hoagie is absolutely delicious! Their Avocado and Veggie Hoagies are awesome too. The calzones are great too I like one with tomatoes, mushrooms & artichokes!

Then the pizza.ooohhhh the pizza! I have tried so many other kinds of pizza, and this is hands-down my all-time favorite. The crust is slightly chewy, and its brushed with a yummy, garlicky oil, and topped with a little parmesan cheese. The ingredients are always top-notch fresh tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, green peppers. Very fresh. The marinara they use is really good too almost like they use roasted red peppers in it not sure about that but man, is it good!

I really like their salads too. My favorite is the Lil Greek feta, banana peppers, olives, mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, pepperoncinis fabulous! They have the best drink specials too half off draft beers Sunday through Thursday which is like 2 for 1 you cant really find that anywhere else! Definitely check it out you will not be disappointed!!

Pros: pizza, vegetarian options, bar tables are seat yourself

Cons: service can be spotty

The pizza at Mellow Mushroom is delicious. They have many different varieties and options, all of which taste great. The service is always great, with friendly and efficient waiters, although it can take a while to get seated (as lines get long) and it can take some time for the food to arrive. The ambience is very fun, as well.

I go to Nashville at least once a year to visit my family. Everytime I go I always visit the Mellow Mushroom. I have always been kind of a pizza hater, but this is the best(without a doubt) pizza place ever. I love the White Pizza. They have such an original way of doing it and it just works. I recommend this resturaunt to anyone.

Terrific, terrific and terrific. Easy going staff, friendly, laid back and respectful. Somehow this unassuming pizza place has better staff than 1/2 the places in Nashville. The Tofu sandwhich and the Portobello Mushroom sandwhich are excellent choices for the vegetarian and the pizza crust is the most amazing!! I love this place.

the pizza is very good here and the prices are great, but the service is incredibly slow. i've been several times and everytime i've had to wait about 45 min. for my food, even when the floor manager was waiting on us.

Mellow Mushroom is my family's favorite place for pizza. We have two small children who have always been made welcome by the wonderfully friendly staff. The pizza is great. They offer all your traditional toppings plus a variety of more exciting fare. My fave is the white pizza. Their crust is perfect.

Do you hate pizza? I do! After working in a pizza place for a while I got extremely burnt out on pizza. My family orders pizza when I will not be home because that is the only time they can enjoy it. A friend suggested the Mellow Mushroom and the pizza was great. They have a wonderful selection of speciality pizzas and I cannot wait to try them all. They also have awesome salads. I really enjoy the Mellow Mushroom.

Mellow Mushroom is the second-best pizza in town - a close runner-up to Guido's. Their crust is great and they offer a wide variety of toppings. Dining in is usually a fine experience although I have had a few flighty waitpeople who seemed to take to stoned 70's decorating theme too seriously. My only complaint is their single slices - which suck compared to a whole pie. I have had the single slices for lunch twice and each time they were kind of cold and the cheese had re-solidified.

Nicole the bartender is one of the nicest and most beautiful women alive. The food is great! I recommend the calzone. It is HUGE. Their hot sandwiches are also great. The atmosphere is also great. I visited there 5 of the 7 nights I was there to play with NTN. I'd go in a heartbeat if I was in the area.

Fun atmosphere and great pizza abound! I plan to go back until I've tried everything on the menu! Their lunch special - 2 slices and a soda for $5.50 - is an unbelievable value. Two slices was a complete half pizza! It made two meals for me!

Veggie Deluxe pizza was very well named. We came exactly for the purpose of getting a great non-greasy veggie pizza and that is what we got. The vegetables were mounded on the pizza and that was were the main taste came from. Happy that they value ones request on less cheese!
Very fast service other than the regular wait on the restaurant's baking procedure.
