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.

UPDATED: The last three times I've gone here its been a bad experience. Servers knew nothing about gluten free options except that you could order gluten free crust. Prior to the past year, servers were very knowledgeable and took my allergies seriously. Now they seem to be clueless. Menu no longer indicates which toppings are kept gluten safe, and servers usually say "I think they are all fine". Every time I have to force them to go to the kitchen and double check with cooks. I don't feel safe at all there any more. That being said the last three times I ate there I was fine, but don't intend to return unless they get things back in order.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: Staff is knowledgeable and they have safe practices and separate prep area for gluten free dishes. I’ve eaten there many times and never had a problem. They finally added a gluten free beer to their bar. I do feel like the quality of the food has declined in the past year or so....used to be excellent gf (and df) pizza, but the last few I've had were mediocre, but hoping it was just poor luck.

Pizza was delicious, staff knowledgeable and friendly. Took a really long time to get our order though even though restaurant wasn’t busy at the time.
