Took 35 minutes to get appetizer of pretzels and there were only 4 tables with customers. Food took another 20 minutes. My sandwich was dry. The service was awful. Could not get refills. Will not be back. Not worth the hype.

Absolutely love coming here. Great atmosphere! Only problem is the long wait to get our pizza. No matter what time of day I have been in the wait is ridiculous!

Every visit is great-people watching around 5 Points is almost as good as the food. The wait staff actually appears to like their work and wants you to like the place.

My family LOVES Mellow Mushroom, but we had very small children in our group and wanted to call ahead and order take-out. Two men stood at a hostess station, not sure why it required two? I was referred to the bar, where one poor woman was trying to handle take-out orders, managing drink orders AND restocking beer in refrigerator. I... More

Was in the mood for pizza with a coworker. We got there, parking was challenging as it is across the city. We ordered salads and then gluten free pizza. This order took longer than expected but the manager cam out and stated he makes his cooks completely scrub down so there is no cross contamination. I appreciated that and our... More

Took a party of nine including ourselves. Party included our daughter and 3 grandchildren, yet we were refused two beers as my wife and I did not have i/d with us. Not usual for UK citizens to carry passports in downtown Birmingham. Guy who was manager came and was unsympathetic quoting rules that evidently had no flexibility although it must... More

This place has very good pizza with more varieties than the average pizzeria. The crust is unique and good, as are the toppings.
