I came home from work with a hankering for some good pizza, and some good beer. Finding both under the same roof in TN is quite hard, but on occasions, the MM manages. I just wanted some Hoegaarden and a sausage, mushroom, onion, and

The people out front don't seem to know where they are going or what they are supposed to do. The kitchen is no better. We were seated and kept getting annoying cell phone calls asking if were near the restaurant. The server was a friendly

Great: Food, service, wait for seating, everything.

We arrived at and discovered over an hour wait. I am a restaurant manager in Atlanta and would not have even considered coming here because of the crowds....but for being on an hour

A beautiful Memorial Day afternoon and my family chose to enjoy a pizza on the patio at Mellow Mushroom in Franklin. We were happy to see a couple of available tables outside when we arrived and asked for seating outside. The young kid at the hostess stand stated that his manager no longer was seating people outside, something about possible rain. I asked to speak to the manager, and yes.... he stated that there were rains forecasted for 5pm (it was currently 4pm) and he was shutting down the patio. It was curious enough that an establishment would shut down a wonderful patio 1 hour before possible rain, but even more amazing that he would do it on an absolutely gorgeous day! Sunny, 83 degrees, and not a cloud in the sky. I was very disappointed in the manager's judgement, and our family chose to eat at another place with a patio. (By the way - - it never rained, we had a great meal outside on the patio at McDougals. We even went for a one hour stroll afterwards the weather was so nice!)

Pros: food is decent

Cons: service is slow, no focus on customer

We went here for the first time a few weeks back. We were pleasantly surprised by the large selection of not only pizzas but calzones, salads and many other items on their menus. The pizza toppings are abundant and they use a ton of cheese. The pizza was very good. The atmosphere was family friendly but slightly more upscale then most pizza joints around here. The service was good even on a busy Saturday evening.

My wife and I have eaten at Mellow Mushroom several times and highly recommend it. The food is fresh, of a high quality, and the fun atmosphere (TVs, music, lots of people) make it an enjoyable place to eat. It's great if you have kids. Our favorite place to sit is on the outside patio nearest to the Franklin square where we can people watch, but you have to get there early or it fills up. Our favorite thing on the menu is the Hawaiian pizza, which we split, and there is usually enough left to take home. Don't miss the hoagies, and make sure you try the tofu one. Mellow Mushroom gets an A+ and 10.0 out of 10.0 from us.

I tried a calzone the first time I visited and there was so much cheese I nearly choked! (Yes, that is a compliment.) I can't review any of the salads or other foods, but the calzones are great, they likely can be split with a friend. The pizza is always good, I enjoy it even heated up in a microwave the next day. I don't know what these people do when they make their pizza, not only is it different, but it is some of the best I've ever had. The only thing is that it stays pretty busy so you might have trouble getting in on a busy Saturday night.

We entered the restaurant with 2 famalies, we had 10 people in total. The greeter told us that it was a 20 minute wait, so we walked through the downtown area then came back. They told us again it was another 20 minutes wait and they were terribly busy. So I walked around the restaurant and at least 25% of the tables were open, I told the server that we would like to push 2 tables together, and again they told us to wait another 20 minutes. We waited another 20 minutes, and asked again. They told us they needed another 20 minutes, and the restaurant was not that busy!! What is up with these people, do they not know they own a restaurant and make their money by serving food to people? So I asked for take out and ordered my food to go. The food only took about 10 minutes to make and we were on our way finally. The person at the take out counter said the waitresses and greeters were angry and lashing it out on the customers because their boss did not give them a good review the day before.....well, don't make that our problem next time!! I will never go here again, even though the food was decent.

Pros: Take Out food is OK.

Cons: Rude people, they lied to us. Would not serve us. Lazy servers that discriminate!!!

I really like the pizza when we add provolone cheese to it.

The meat pizza we had had too many types of meat and was distracting in flavor-- but the provolone cheese with portabello mushrooms pizza was awesome!! We've had that twice. We've also had their calzones and my husbands was tolerable-- but mine with total mush-- raw dough--- I couldn't tolerate that-- so that sucked.

the service the first time we went was fine, but the other times we've been it hasn't been the best- very inattentive.
We consider going sometimes-- but only for the tried and true pizza, portabello with provolone pizza--

Yes, sometimes they are busy and you do have to wait to be seated, but I have never had them be rude to me or my family. The food is excellent and they have a great variety of tasty brews. I eat here once a week and would recommend it to anyone.

I actually cannot comment on how the food is at this restaurant because my family and I have left without being seated.....TWICE!!! The first time we left, we stood there for 15 minutes with our two young children waiting for someone to take our name or seat us. During this time several employees walked by looked at us, did not acknowlege our presence, or offer to help us. So we left in disbelief that the service at this new restaurant was so poor. We decided to give it another chance thinking that night might have been just a fluke. We did get our name on the list today, however the girl was rude about it. We soon found out it wasn't just us, she was rude to everyone who came after us, and actually while we were still standing there we watched a couple walk out that had been waiting longer than us, and a group of FIVE people walked out after the employees were rude about adjusting a table to better accomodate some elderly people with their party. So in total 11 people, including us, walked out of this restaurant in the 25 minutes we stood there, after "rude hostess" told us it would be a ten minute wait. Shame on us for returning to a place that didn't make a good first impression to begin with. After talking to several other people, all have said the same thing...the service there is terrible. That is a reputation that will eventually outweigh good pizza, it's simply a matter of time.

I love their pizza! They have so many selections with great prices. This is a great place for the family or for large groups. They also have a bar which is a plus!

This is my favorite place to go. They have a HUGE selection of beer and liquor. They also have the best pizza around! They're hoagies are great & there are a lot of vegetarian selections. The people who work there are really nice & they know us by name. Don't forget NTN trivia!! Love it.
