I ate here last year. Great servers and new what celiac was and ect. Was not a good experience this time. I have celiac and got very sick. I will not be going back. I explained and they asserted they could handle the cross contamination and ect. As I said before I got very sick.

They claim to be GF but my son gets sick every time we eat here. Either they are very careless with ingredients and cross contamination or they just don’t care. We are here 2 nights ago and it was a disaster. Horrible unfriendly and indifferent service and they could not care less. Won’t go back and won’t recommend.

The food not causing a reaction is the only reason for more than 1 star. We came with family that spoke highly of Mellow Mushroom in South Carolina. What a disappointment!!!! We waited an hour for our food to start arriving. And then it took 30 minutes for all the food to arrive at the table each individual person’s separately. And the child’s meal was the VERY last to arrive and we had to ask for her something to eat while we waited. This was NOT the waitress’s fault as we watched her trying. This was an issue of the kitchen not managing their food delivery correctly.

They are aware of celiac. They let us know that they would change gloves and make sure the gf pizza was kept away from other food. Excellent service.

Great service. My daughter and I loved the GF pizza. I've also had the salads at Mellow. It's a bit pricey, but it is nice to have a pizza option.

Gluten free pizza was very good and priced the same as the non-gluten free pizzas. Friendly service. My son thought it was the best gluten free pizza he has had!

Very good gluten free pizza, but when the waitress brought the food, she said "Gluten free pizza and a 'good' one" - referring to my husband's non-gf pizza. We think Mellow Mushroom is rather pricey.

Pizza was awesome. But I did however have a nasty reaction after eating there. Within minutes if leaving I was doubled over in abdominal pain. Pain that was so bad I passed out and damn near hospitalized. The staff was great and so was our waitress, but I can't afford another attack like that one.

There are two locations in Pigeon Forge. One is at the Island shopping area and does not have direct access for parking. We went to the location on Parkway instead. Wait time was decent and expected since busy place. Pizza was great! They even have “Certified GF” marked at top about gluten, which is pretty rare for pizza places. Usually most places say cannot guarantee cross contamination and certainly never say certified. Was immediately relaxing to see this and they listed 4 signature CGF pizzas that could be made along with other GF ingredients. When mentioned gluten free, the server instantly said “I got you”, which means a ton to celiac families. Small size available only for gluten free pizzas and definitely plenty for a personal pizza order. We did separate orders with small GF pizzas for our whole party and most had at least a slice leftover to take home.

We have found Mellow Mushrooms to be a good option while traveling but I always call a new one to confirm procedures. In Aiken, they offer gf crust. Manager said it’s prepared in a separate part of the kitchen to minimize cross-contamination risk. Then it is cooked on a clean sheet pan so it doesn’t touch the oven where wheat crust goes.
