I know this is a chain, but I had a fantastic Caesar salad here. Ashley, our server, took excellent care of us despite it being a very busy night. The trivia contest was fun, but there isn't a lot of policing to check for cheating, so you have to be able to let that go.

We sat outside with our pups and had some great pizza. The small pizza size is perfect for one person and the service was really great. We were attended to very well and it was pleasant overall. The outdoor seating is ideal and it was really nice to have our dogs next to us. They even provided our pups with... More

We were a group of 13 on a Friday night so we weren't surprised to have a long wait. We hung out at the bar for a while and finally decided to order pizzas to take back to our hotel. The pretzels and cheese sauce came quickly and that cheese was out of this world! Unfortunately, the pizzas did not... More

Thank goodness for us that they were open late. They were very busy, but still manage to get our pizzas in a fair time. Our waiter was patient with all the students ordering. The food was fabulous!

We were here on Super Bowl Sunday 2017. Everything was fine - but nothing was special about it. We enjoyed the game - but felt like we needed to keep ordering food - not just drinks. We will go again - but not on an "event day".

Hi Jackie, We have been working with our staff greatly to make sure you don't feel rushed or pushed out on big event days. Thank you for leaving the review and we will keep working to bring a better friendlier face to you every visit! More

I have eaten at a couple Mellow Mushroom's in the past and found that this MM was far better than the others, pizza was surprisingly good. Service was okay, just very slow.

Thank you so much for the compliment! We are working hard at revamping parts of our restaurant so that we can speed up that service so you can have speed as well as our sweet smiling servers! More

Server was nice enough .. brought my sons pizza ten minutes before I got mine. ... he was finished. Food was okay. Not impressed enough to come back but not unimpressed enough to actually complain.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Waited for a table for only 20 minutes - grabbed a beer at the bar and the table was ready - not bad. When we got to the table, we placed our order and waited over an hour for 3 small pizzas. This gave us plenty of time to use the restroom (which... More
