I had the Holy Shitake Pie, but it was cold. The flavor was alright, but I wasn't amazed. The place seems great if you're under the influence, but a little dirty otherwise.

Eaten here several times when visiting son. Food and service is inconsistent. Location is good, pay for parking and can be iffy during busy times, decor is cool, restaurant is loud. Not a place I would wait in line for when there are so many other good eats nearby.

The three of us ate here last night - good food, good service and plenty of pleasant conversation. We ordered a chicken Mediterranean pizza, beer and a hot spinach artichoke dip appetizer with crusty bread chunks--delicious. The pizza crust was crispy and our "pie" had, onions, creamy white cheese, peppers, etc. Could have ordered a typical pizza with marinara sauce,... More

With names like Holy Shiitake,Thai Dye,Magical Mystery Tour, and Kosmic Karma for their pizzas, It sounds anything but mellow. Went there for lunch on a saturday. Good service, clean tables, and friendly staff. I had the Melloterranean pizza. It was good! It reminded me of a chicken gyro on a pizza with Tzatziki sauce. DIfferent, not bad. I would get... More

I am a transplanted north-easterner. This is really good Pizza. A local 'chain' that gets pizza right. I haven't ever had a bad pizza. Mellow Mushroom and Village Idiot are hands down the best Pizza places in Columbia, IMHO.

We chose to go here 1/14 around 5pm because it offers a gluten free pizza crust - daughter has celiac disease. We were seated promptly upstairs and the waitress took our drink orders. She was able to answer our questions about the preparation of the gluten free pizza. We were a little reluctant to spend $21 on a 12-inch gluten... More

There is a lot of hype in columbia about Mellow Mushroom, but personally I am not a fan. Their prices are high average for a pizza joint, and I really dislike the dry whole wheat crust that is a staple of their pizzas. Their toppings are light and specialty pizzas are OK at best.

Another great experience at a mellow mushroom. I love the jerk chicken sandwich. The service was great. And the little Greek salad is not so little and it's delicious.
