    Very good, but still a very thin crust pizza & very pricey. We ordered take out instead of dining in, which saved on the wait time & an even larger bill.

    So happy to have found this place while traveling. Great pizza! I had the House Special and was not disappointed. So great to feel like a normal person and go out for pizza. Great flavor and texture. Friendly environment. Good value.

    One of the best GF pizzas I've ever had! Mellow Mushroom offers plenty of GF toppings, as well as vegan cheese - a huge plus for me! The pizza is a bit pricy, but it is absolutely fabulous, and it's wonderful to go to a pizza place and find gluten free options other than salad! The service is great as well! I once received a slightly burnt pizza (which was still very edible.) The manager noticed, had the staff bake a new pizza, and gave me a few coupons for future visits. I was highly impressed. You'll pay a little more at Mellow Mushroom, but it's absolutely worth it.

    The pizza was delicious, and they were able to give us veggies for the humus appetizer. However, the gf crust they have is the common 12" thin frozen crust. Which is fine, except when you're charged over $20 for it! They told us that the charge would be the same as a regular medium pizza, but since the regular small we ordered (half of the family are celiacs- half are not) was $15, we assumed that a medium was just a bit more. Our family of 4 paid a bill of $80 for 3 pizzas (1 small, 2 medium) and a humus appetizer! In our opinion it is way over priced for the quality. If they made their own gf crust in-house, it might be worth it. But we can get the frozen crust at Stouts nearby or even Pizza Hut or Dominos. If you're looking for good in-house gf crust, try the Purple Garlic. It's much tastier, cheaper, and the owner goes out of his way to increase his gf menu.

    I so dispute the person who spoke negatively about pizza crust. Most places serve up frozen Udi's pizza crust. MM makes there's FRESH in a separate kitchen area and the GF meals are even delivered to guest separate of other guests meals. Staff is fully trained on GF (even the bartender) and the chef himself came out to answer a question on their soup. I have never scene such care to the GF guest! Cudos to MM!!!

    Our new GF crust is also Vegan, and we have stepped it up even further to avoid possibility of cross contamination. Using a custom Smart Flour gluten free/vegan crust now (dropped Still Riding) in order to offer a better pie! All pies are made from isolated ingredients and on a seperate make line/pizza pans. As the owner, please email me with any concerns and I will be glad to help. peternehen@gmail.com

    New to being gluten free and the server Katelyn was very forthcoming to ensure that their gluten free crust has no cross contamination with separate prep space and separate oven from other pizzas. Since this is for my kids, it was great to have one of their favorite meals out.

    Awesome GF crust! They do not have a separate preparation area, but they do not use any shared equipment. YOU HAVE TO ASK THEM TO USE FRESH CONTAINERS OF INGREDIENTS as they use the same toppings that are used on regular pizzas. However, they accommodated my request and I had a wonderful pizza with no illness.

    The owner admitted that the food may not be safe from cross contamination, as it's cooked in the same oven. I tried it anyways and got sick. I have Celiacs and am pretty sensitive. The cheese was also weird and like plastic. They put a ton of toppings and cheese on the pizzas and it was just not very appetizing with the gluten free crust.

    I was pleasantly surprised and impressed at our server's familiarity and experience in accommodating people with food allergies. I have celiac disease and was guaranteed that my food would be prepared in a separate area, with separate utensils and only one person would handle my food, and even deliver my food so that there is no risk of cross contamination. At other restaurants unfortunately, I've had to pay the price with my health and well-being to find out they don't take measures for cross contamination or even know what items contain gluten or what it is. I will definitely be returning to this location and want to thank the staff and management for taking this seriously and putting in the extra effort to keep your customers happy. You rock.

    The GF pizza was great. They have separate area, toppings, etc for preparing GF pizza. And here's a great idea all restaurants should use: the person who prepares the GF pizza is the one who brings it out to the table! Too many times, at other places, the server brings my order out and can't confirm that it was prepared GF.

    I have a gluten allergy and have eaten here several times. So far, I have not had any cross contamination. As far as the quality of the food goes, it is wonderful! For artisan pizza, this is my go-to place. Absolutely would recommend to anyone. I am also lactose intolerant and they have vegan cheese. This gives them a double thumbs up in my book.

    We enjoyed the pizza toppings, but were floored at the prices $24 for a 12- inch gluten free pizza. They did have Daiya cheese substitute to offer for my dairy allergy. Although it tasted good, it took a LONG time to receive our food...AND I was super bloated even before leaving the table. My husband was woozy all day followed by diarrhea in the morning. All in all not worth the risk or price.

    We didn't get sick but this was not a good pizza. We have grown accustomed to getting high quality gluten free pizza from MM, but this one was cold by the time it got to us. And it was probably cold because it wasn't completely cooked before they took it out. They were very understanding and offered to take it back, but I am not one to send stuff back after it is brought out to us. We got a discount but would rather have had a good pizza.

When I went in to pick it up the staff was awesome! They were attentive and informed! My family wanted to eat at another pizza (buffet) restaurant that was not understanding or helpful when I called. I picked my deliciousness up from MM and ate in the car in the parking lot of the other restaurant.
