The pizza is ok, but nothing special. Service is so, so, and we have had much better pizza elsewhere

Mellow Mushroom pizza has excellent crust, and they put lots of toppings on their pizzas. Although their pizzas are pricey, I am never disappointed in their quality. The veggie pizza is our favorite, and it comes loaded with whatever veggies you choose. The only drawback...More

Great salad and dessert. Pizza was ok - crust great but tomato sauce was bland. Service was good. Would go again but I would try a sandwich

I dont know that I would have a rehearsal dinner there. It is one big open space with a bar in the middle and can be pretty loud. I dont think they have an area that can be closed off for a private event
