    I was here last week and had a pizza out for the first time in over two years and it was FANTASTIC. They use smart flour crust and I had green pepper and bacon on mine. Not only that but it was a good sized pizza (12") and I was able to take some home.

    This is the best gluten free pizza that I have ever had. Everything is prepared separately and is free of cross contamination. I am very sensitive and had no problems at all. The staff is very well trained and my waiter was wonderful. The waiter reported to us that many people with out allergies come in for the gluten free pizza because it is their favorite. I highly recommend Mellow Mushroom.

    Service was great. Pizza was good but not great. I was hoping for better crust on it. The crust was really thin and soggy in the middle (although I like and am used to the thin gluten free crust). It was one of the better gluten free pizzas I've had, that's for sure, just was hoping for a bit better crust from a place that was rated 5 stars.

    4 stars pending 5, once we come back (pretty sure it is inevitable, the mushroom pizza had my husband licking his fingers, sadly the toppings aren't guaranteed GF ) I had the GF Kosmic Karma. The crust had good chew and flavor, and the toppings were tasty despite my congestion and inability to properly smell. I definitely recommend this place.

    Pizza was a definite 5stars. I'm not GF, but my husband, who is, and I shared a pizza. We both thought it was great! I did, however, have to take away a star for the difficulty in getting there and poor parking options. It took us so long to travel from I-95 (8mi: 105 min round trip) we called in the pizza to go and just ate it in the car. Good thing, too , bc they were packed with a long waiting line and we couldn't 'to find a place to park even just to grab our to-go order!

    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.

    My first experience with Mellow Mushrooms was great. I ordered a gluten free veggie pie . I had great service and a safe meal despite it being packed. My second experience was far from okay. My table ordered 2 gluten free pizzas. One came out 45 mins later. Then the manager came to tell us that they burnt the other pizza and will be making us a new one. It took another hour for the new pie to come out. We paid and left,within an hour I was incredibly sick. I'm severely sensitive to gluten and haven't been that sick in years. I was so disappointed as they claim to keep everything separate and what not. It wasn't even busy so there is absolutely zero reason my pizza was a)messed up b)got my glutened
