My daughter and I ordered 2 small pizzas. She got the magical mystery tour without jalapeños and loved it!! Very different with pesto and great tasting mushrooms. I got the mighty meaty and it was perfect with bacon, ham, sausage, beef and pepperoni! Very casual but nice seating with lots of room. The restaurant was decorated like the 60s 70s... More

We first ate at a Mellow Mushroom in Charleston, SC, not realizing there was more than one. We were so happy when we found out they existed across the south! So when we were in Charlottesville and found there was one here, we had to eat there. We had the pretzel appetizer, which was amazing, and then split a veggie... More

We went here with a large group and the staff was great at keeping on top of everything. Kids and adults were happy with plenty of options from plain pizza to great sandwiches. If you want something simple, you can have that...or be adventurous. Lots of TVs if you want to watch a game while you're there.

Came tonight and had the mighty meats pizza and the simply shiitake pizza. Both were pretty good and the crust was outstanding. Service was prompt and attentive. Parking was found in the nearby 14th St garage.

Friendly staff, who looked like they were students but were very tentative. Never had half empty drinks or cold food. Not a long wait on the food either even though it wasn't a busy night. We had the pretzels for our appetizer, was worried about the size of 3 but it was plenty for us. We took 1 whole pretzel... More

My wife and I ate here on a Sunday evening while staying nearby. Recommended by the hotel staff. We were very pleased. The food is excellent with a large beverage list. Definitely on the list to return, or to catch another location.

Here in Charlottesville Virginia for a business trip. Ended up staying at a hotel quite a ways away from my meetings, but closer to the Mellow Mushroom. This was not by design however it worked out well for me. Sunday late afternoon dinner was excellent. The dining area is clean and the service is outstanding. The food is always consistently...

Went to Mellow Mushroom for a weeknight dinner. I had eaten at a MM once before in Pigeon Forge so I saw it on TripAdvisor and decided to go. The wait staff was busy with students outside and at the bar when I arrived so it too a few minutes to see a waitress. I didn't want pizza so I... More

The pretzels are a very worthwhile appetizer. We had the garlic butter and parmesan flavor. There wasn't much garlic or butter going on on, but they were still very good. The pizza is all about the crust. It has a crisp outer and a soft doughy inner. It appears to be a mix of white and wheat flours, just the... More

We went to dinner at the Mellow Mushroom. Outstanding. Both the Greek and Caesar salad were exceptional, the steak and cheese hoagie was substantial, and the pizza was best of all. Incredible crust, great tomato sauce and serious cheese. Eliza was more familiar with the 20 beers on tap, but the merlot was worth having. 8 different sports events playing... More
