Great service, delicious pizza and hoagies. The price is reasonable for a college town. Food came out quick and staff was responsive to drink refills. The manager checked back several times to make sure we were enjoying our meal.

A group of my colleagues enjoyed a very good meal at Mellow Mushroom last week. The food was delicious, as always, and the young man who waited on us was absolutely wonderful. As a bonus, we were seated in the Scooby Bus!! What fun.
