you'll like this place more than I do. Its a chain. Been to a few of them. Evacuated from hurricane and had dog. We were able to get a table on their little narrow sidewalk area that was fenced in. Options were limited if you are asking why I'd go if I hate their crust. Great beer options. And we... More

I'll start that the food is always up to par with other Mellows. Which means it's always great. However, this mellow is consistent in that the service always manages to suck. For instance, the 2nd to last time we went, we waited for 20 minutes between when the hostess sat us and when the server got our drinks. Last night,... More

We were a little hesitant to try our MM since it's move from Lumpkin Street. While from the outside it looks very "chain" and inside feels very "chain" - the flavors are consistently excellent with what we knew from their previous location years ago. We enjoyed watching the pizza makers hand toss dough and our pizza was cooked perfectly. The... More

The good was very good as usually, but the service was very slow to come out of the back. We walked up to get a quick bite to eat nice bar and view of downtown.

Even though the place was very busy, the staff had great attitudes and friendly and helpful. The food was slow arriving, but again it was very busy. Pizza and salads were the chosen fare, and all were good quality and good eats.

We went in and waited for a server for about 10 minutes and then finally went and asked for one. After that everything was great! Pizza was good, server was great (after the minor hiccup) Great location downtown.

We are very sorry about that and we will find out where our miscommunication happened to prevent it from happening again. Glad the experience was not ruined by it and thank you for letting us know! More

The pizza here is delicious, and there are a wide variety of choices from which to choose. The slices are quite large, and the prices aren't too high. The service is okay, sometimes it was a little slow and the server forgot some things, but it didn't ruin my experience. Located in downtown Athens, it is usually quite crowded, so... More

They have great pizza and lots of items on the menu along with a large selection of beers. The only problem like everywhere in downtown Athens is parking. Best time to go is when college students are out of town.
