    I ate here on August 9th for the second time in 2 years while we were on vacation. Their gluten free menu is very limited with a 10" gluten free pizza; however, that suited me just fine. They make their own GF crust, and the pizza was great! If you are looking for GF pizza, I would definitely recommend Mellow Mushroom. If you are looking for GF variety, you might try a different restaurant.

    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.

    The GF pizza was very good. The crust was crispy on the edges but still chewy inside. We asked the waitress to bake it a bit longer from experience at other MM locations. The manager (Jackson) was really attentive. He had his kitchen prepare baked chicken wings for my daughter. He brought all the containers to our table so we could check the ingredients ourselves. They were fantastic. My daughter has CD and is very sensitive. She ate every wing and had no reaction. This store went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience.

    I ate here on Friday for lunch. I let them know I’m celiac and the waiter assured me they were very familiar with CC protocol etc. my stomach started hurting within 1/2 hour of eating :( I am pretty non-symptomatic usually so was surprised that i felt this way right after eating the pizza. Seems their procedures weren’t safe enough 😢

    GF pizza looked amazing, but it turned out the crust had a burnt flavor to it and it was very dark. Everyone knows GF crust are temperamental and very easy to burn. When I mentioned to the server that it looked fabulous but it was a bit burnt they immediately made me a new one and assured me they wanted me to have a perfect Pizza today. I'm incredibly psyched! Manager Matt did an awesome job as did server Justin. Kudos. Highly recommend...!

    I didn’t get sick, and I usually absolutely love Mellow Mushroom for gluten free pizza, but this location was mediocre at best. The food was gross, and service was okayish (for some reason we had 3 different servers, and I think the first might have been drunk????) I love Mellow Mushroom and had never had a bad experience before this one. Would recommend the chain, but definitely not this location. There’s a good gluten free bakery (Rise) literally one minute away—go there instead.

    Nice people, nice menu and healthier choices than most, unfortunately the guys behind the counter who prepare the pizzas DO NOT ALWAYS FOLLOW PROCEDURE given them by the company to insure gluten free. Eaten the pizza several times, but last time I got sick, and if you’re allergic to gluten like I am, you know when you’ve been burned. Managers are unable to make sure workers use the process in place. Eat at your own risk.

    This was my first visit here and my first time using my Nima Sensor. I spoke with the server about their preparation practices, which seemed excellent. I ordered the Mighty Meaty GF pie. I tried to gather a sample for the Nima that had a majority of the ingredients. Nima found no gluten. The pizza was excellent and I had no I'll effects afterwards. This seems to be a very safe place for celiac. I will return.

    They have less topping options for the GF pizza. Garlic is listed in the menu as a non GF option as some other toppings which it was a bummer. Also, the crust was hard and didn't taste much like anything, it was just dry. Good news is I didn't get sick! They do have a dedicated side in the kitchen just for GF food preparation, I was informed. But unfortunately not a good tasting GF pizza.

    Was my favorite until they decided to nix the plans for the one in Hendersonville, TN (just a few miles from downtown Nashville) to build a second in Nashville. When there was only one in Nashville, I dealt with walking 1/2 mile from parking to restaurant, expensive prices (gladly paid to have servers and cooks trained about celiac disease), and driving over 20 miles to get to that location. Will never eat at Mellow Mushroom again. Recently in Destin, FL. Drove to Ciao Bella (excellent food) rather than set foot inside another Mellow Mushroom. Would always eat at the one in Bowling Green when we were there, Gatlinburg when we were there, etc. Many people were disappointed when they decided not to build in Hendersonville. It's all about the $$$. More money to be made in downtown Nashville than a few miles out in another city of only 60,000 people. One star because it is the least I can give.

    As of August 1, 2017, all locations changed the size of their GF pizzas. The ONLY size you can order now is a very small personal pizza - what I would describe as a kid's pizza. Despite this change, my pizza was nearly $16, plus an additional $4 for vegan cheese. Although the pizza is tasty, I don't know anyone who would be ok paying these prices for a teeny tiny pizza. Very disappointing.

    The staff was incredibly helpful in making me a pizza I could eat. The menu is labeled and the staff was willing to go to the kitchen and verify what ingredients could be prepared in the back vs. on the line. When there were ingredients that were not prepped in the gf area, staff was great at substituting and making me a delicious pizza. They've changed the sizing/pricing, so the pizza is smaller than it used to be, but it is also priced at the small price + $2- a better option when just 1-2 people need gf. Would definitely return.
