I ordered the GF Kosmic Karma pizza. It was so good that I demolished the whole thing. It was pretty thin crust. The only downside I have to say was the price, about $20 just for my pizza. There were only about 4 pizzas to choose from that they can guarantee to be GF. I did not get sick, which is the most important thing! I’ll give 5 stars because I didn’t get sick 🥳

Due to covid, we ordered online and picked up. The first night was fantastic pizza and easy pick up. Second time was ok pizza and easy pick up. When I called about all the missing ingredients on my pizza they credited my card for my pizza. Online the only option for gf is pizza.

The food was good. I didn’t get sick. I had a salad and a kosmic something pizza. They were both tasty!! (I rated this on food and celiac... however everything was dirty. The menus were gross. The table was dirty. My wine came with food particles on the glass. The rolled silverware had dried food on it. The floor was dirty.)

We didn't plan on eating here, but the day got rearranged so we decided to get pizza knowing it was a safe option and there are very little on the parkway. Wish I would have read the reviews. It's me and my kids and they seat us in the bar. There are tons of seats open everywhere else in the restaurant and the bar is empty. Kinda odd. First thing we notice is that every item (reg.pizza, GF pizza and salads) are all $5 more than where we live in Knoxville. But we're there and we're hungry. My daughter and I split a Greek salad and a GF pizza. Salad was good but dressing is very thick. GF crust was undercooked and didn't hold toppings on. Toppings were tasty and better quality than crust. My son ate a traditional crust and said the same, that toppings were good but crust not very flavorful. Interesting since it's not GF but same issue. All in all, it was a decent lunch but awfully expensive.

Pizza was undercooked and had very little topping, with about an inch of crust all the way around. They changed the crust a few years back and now it tends to be chewy and not a great flavor.

It was a holiday weekend and it was as if they had no servers or cooks in the kitchen. We waited an hour for our food and the GF pizza was just ok. Certainly not worth the wait.

Both my son and I became sick after eating the gluten free pizza. He has wheat induced asthma and I have celiac. He had to use his inhaler many times and I had a very bad night. I believe cross contamination so beware.

While I appreciate the dedicated GF preparation and a pizza I didn’t get sick from, the crust was nothing to write home about and got soggy at the end. Also the pizza sauce is pretty bland. We don’t have this chain in MI but I’ve had way better GF pizzas elsewhere. We’ll pass in the future

Let me start by saying I have a Mellow Mushroom near my home, so I had an idea of what to expect. However, our server must have had an off night. I ordered a gluten and dairy free pizza with 3 toppings. It seemed to take a little longer than usual so I was really disappointed when my pizza came and there was regular cheese on it. Since I am lactose intolerant, eating cheese tends to flare my fibro. So i asked for it to be remade and ordered a salad in the meantime. When the next pizza came out it only had two of my three toppings on it. At that time, the manager came out and apologized and said he would take the pizza and salad off of our bill. Well when it was time to go, the server brought us our bill for the full amount. We explained what the manager had said, so he went to see. Then we asked for a container for my salad, pizza, and drink to go. He only brought pizza box. After a few more tries we were good. I gave it four stars because the manager comped the pizza and salad and having eaten at the local establishment, I knew this was not the norm.

The waiter did not know much about gluten free. He stated follow what the menu has listed. I ordered gluten free pizza with vegetables. When he brought it to the table, it was on a tray with 3 other pizzas. All of the pizza pans where touching. Then when he put the pizza down his thumb was on the pizza.

The pizza here is good but as all gluten-free food, a bit pricey. They don’t have very many choices for gluten free though, and the pizza crust isn’t very good. I would say that if you want pizza and needed something to eat quickly, this would be the place to go. I wasn’t affected by this restaurant but then again I only have an intolerance to gluten and am not celiac. This place may not be safe for celiacs,so be careful.

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.

Our server was very attentive, considerate and friendly, especially when it came to gf! We ordered a gf pizza to share and wanted a few toppings different which he had know problem dividing on the pizza. Nice atmosphere with TV screens for watching your favorite teams. Pizza was expensive though, watch your pocketbook!

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.

Waitress said they prepare the GF pizzas in a separate area. Crust wasn’t great, but it felt like a celiac safe experience, and my celiac daughter didn’t have any issues after eating. They also offer a prepackaged GF brownie for dessert. The waitress asked her if she wanted it heated. She said yes, but then the waitress came back and said that the kitchen staff said they couldn’t guarantee it would be gluten free if they opened it, so they would not heat it. I appreciated their caution.
