they state on the menu that the 12" gf pies are priced as their 14" mediums (vs 10" small), they offer about 6 specialty pies on a dedicated section of their menu, the food has been great and really stepped up from my original experience 3 years ago, my bf and I go here all the time, it's a hippie vibe do don't expect fast service
It seems to be hit or miss here. I have been cross contaminated once and another time I was fine. The pizza itself was delicious! However they don't list any prices for the GF pizzas and they are substantially higher priced than their regular pies. Also the service is terrible. Expect to be ignored half the time even if the restaurant is empty.
My daughter has Celiac Disease and we went to eat at this place. When she received her pizza she did not like it, I even tried it ugh!! She ended up getting sick because they did not cook it separate from the other food after I explained to them that her pizza cannot touch other foods containing wheat. Her pizza was expensive, what a waste of money and I am very disappointed!
Not only do they have gluten-free pizza, their toppings are listed as gluten-free or not in the normal menu. Also, they gave me the best pizza ever!
Sensitive Celiac here and I eat at this Mellow Mushroom probably once a month. I’ve not had issues here. I find that they take their procedures seriously and have had good luck here! We usually get the Cosmic Karma or Veggie Lovers GF pizzas 👍
The GF pizza used to be a decent size but, unfortunately, they changed it so now the only option is a very small kid-sized pizza. Not at all worth the price, considering it would take two to actually fill me up and I’m a small person!
DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS LOCATION!!! Ordered a plain gluten free cheese pizza through doordash and it looked very much like a regular gluten full pizza but I double and triple checked my receipt and it said the order was gluten free. After eating a piece and having another person taste a regular pizza and mine from this place I called the restaurant and checked to see. They said it was supposed to be a thin crust typical of other restaurants (which it was definitely not). After five minutes on hold to speak with the manager the same lady came back on the phone saying that he was “too busy” and that they could remake it but I would have to go to the store to pick it up and that they couldn’t give me a refund and would have to call doordash to be refunded for their mistake. Definitely will not be ordering again! How can you mess up a clearly labeled gluten free order!!!
Celiac friendly! Pizza prepared and made in a separate location. Servers very knowledgeable and helpful. Gluten pizza tastes great too. Such a relief to eat at a restaurant and not be worried about cross contamination.
Mellow mushroom is always a good, safe chain to go to because they prepare their gluten free pizzas in a separate area (away from all the horrible gluten). The staff always brings the gluten free pizza out separate from the gluten ones to insure no contamination, which I appreciate. Never gotten sick!
The back of their menu has about 2 paragraphs on how the staff is trained in cross contamination and how they prevent that in the cooking process. They were so awesome and great to talk with. They even mark each pizza topping on whether it’s GF or not! They also if your lactose intolerant has AMAZING vegan cheese. It was awesome. Idk if some of the reviews here are older calling it not celiac friendly but I can tell you right now it is.
Got glutened. Yes, pizza places are always risky for celiacs, but given how many other Mellow Mushrooms we’ve eaten at, with no problem, the chain clearly has a system to keep GF pizzas as segregated as possible, and this location is not following it.
Had great service from our server Wed afternoon and he was diligent in explaining the process for the GF pizza. My daughter has Celiac and we explained that she’s extremely sensitive. My daughter asked for bacon on her pizza and our server went back to verify it was separate and gluten free. She enjoyed the pizza and had zero reactions!
First timers from CT... wanted to try this because my wife needs gluten free and she wanted pizza. As a side note for celiacs my wife is extremely sensitive. This place does have a lot of GF options. First, parking here is a complete nightmare. You may have to pay to park next lot over. Or, if you’re lucky you can find a spot on the street just a short walk away. When we walked in we were greeted and seated by a hostess with virtually zero personality. Waitress was nice though and IMO was knowledgeable about GF related questions and concerns. Food came out pretty quickly. My wife’s GF pizza was not prepared as ordered, they left off one topping. She liked the toppings otherwise. GF Pizza crust itself tasted pretty gross to be brutally honest. It was very bland. I actually apologized to my wife for having to suffer through it... The good part for her is at least she had no adverse reaction, so that was good. I got a regular pizza with three toppings. My gluten filled pizza was pretty good. I liked the crust, it was both crispy and chewy. So, for regular pizza, this is a good choice. If you require gluten free pizza, I’d say go somewhere else, yuk!
They use pre-made GF dough. It’s a thin crust. The toppings are flavorful enough to help you forget the great homemade crust you are missing out on. $2 more for GF. You’ll need a whole one by yourself.
This Mellow is unlike any other I have ever visited. Instead of being seated at a table, you walk up to a counter and order. They do not have a specific GF menu here like they do at other Mellows. Luckily, I am familiar enough with the menu that I knew what to order. I also had an exceptional employee come out of the kitchen to double check my order and let me know he was handling my GF pizza away from the other food. I had a great meal and did not get sick. I am sure this employee isn’t always there. However, this only gets three stars because the place was jammed (which increases room for error) and if you aren’t familiar with their GF options, you may accidentally order a topping or something unsafe because they don’t have a clear GF menu like other Mellow Mushrooms.
Best GF pizza I've ever had. They were very aware, have a designated cooking area, & change their gloves. I have celiac & I am extremely sensitive to cross contamination. I did not get sick &I got to enjoy an amazing pizza! The staff was also very friendly & it's a very fun atmosphere !
We always enjoy Mellow Mushroom. We went early, before 6, on a Wednesday and got right in, but was super crowded by the time we left.
This pizza was AMAZING, I got the signature "Kosmic Karma" on their GF crust. I was told that their GF pizzas are prepared in a designated space and baked in a dedicated oven (very impressive). It's a busy (and loud) restaurant so of course I was a little nervous but Nima Sensor assuaged my worries with no gluten detected.
My wife has celiac and I'm a gluten lover. This is our go-to pizza place! The gluten free pizzas she gets are better than a lot of the regular pizzas at other pizza joints. They also have a full bar so you can really enjoy your meal. Outdoor seating is a nice touch.
Dishes were all dirty. After requesting new, clean dishes we were brought slightly less dirty dishes. I finally just pulled wipees out of my purse to clean my own. If my husband hadn't been so excited to eat at Mellow Mushroom, I would've left within 5 minutes of sitting down. Slow service too. I have zero faith in the safety of their gf or the knowledge of their staff (I mean obviously it's a big deal for a plate to have little bits of what looks like crust when I've already informed you I need gluten free). I'm sure I'll know soon whether I was glutened or not, but I'm pretty much counting on it. So dissapointed in Mellow Mushroom.
I love them! They have a dedicated area to make gluten free pizzas and are careful with ingredient cross contamination. For example, I asked about getting the buffalo chicken pizza but they mentioned that the chicken and dough are stored closely and may be at risk of cross contamination so instead I had the Kosmic Karma. Delicious and no reaction!
Delicious pizza and crust! I ordered the Kosmic Karma on GF crust and was very happy with how it tasted.
Staff is knowledgeable on allergies, make it known if you have issues with CC. The gluten free crust is good and the vegan cheese is also very tasty! Good pizza overall.
Dedicated kitchen for gluten free. They certify 5 pizzas. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Must state you have celiac or wheat allergy and you need allergy prep. Different chef in completely different kitchen and oven will prepare. Menu states clearly which ingredients are safe. We ordered celiac sons for allergy prep and mine with gluten free crust. The kitchen manager came out to verify that this was how I intended it he did not want anyone sick. My husband ordered gluten free but chose jalapenos which caused chef to come out again to make sure we knew that ingredient wasn't from a certified source. Felt very safe. Pizza was delicious!
Delicious gluten free pizzas and salads! Several types of pizzas are guaranteed to be GF. I’ve eaten at this location twice, and never had a problem. The wait staff is super friendly and made sure I got a GF meal.
