Mellow Mushroom - Athens

Mellow Mushroom makes the best pizza in Athens, Georgia. Our fan-inspired restaurant is located on E. Clayton Street. Mellow is a favorite for the locals in Athens, Bogart, Watkinsville, Oconee, and the surrounding areas.

Craving pizza? Maybe it’s time to try something a little more unique. We’re known for our homemade crust and stone-baked pizzas with bold combinations. And if we can make pizza special, just imagine what we can do with a munchie, salad, calzone, or even a burger. Are you hungry yet? Definitely. Take your pick from our selection of 40 draft beers including brews from Athens own Creature Comforts, Terrapin, Akademia and Southern Brewing, or try our tasty, handcrafted cocktails. And, because we are inclusive of everyone’s needs, many of our pizzas can be made gluten-free or vegan.

Mellow Mushroom Athens - The Story

Inspired by local artists and our hometown Georgia Bulldogs, the store has a mix of eclectic art and school spirit. There are plenty of TVs across the top of the huge wraparound bar for fans to cheer on the dawgs. A Mellow Mushroom sign made of old gas station signs hangs above the wooden booths. The walls are covered with various artwork from local artists. Statues of the Georgia mascot, UGA, are proudly mounted throughout the store. An electronic statue of the Mellow Wizard lights up the back of the store and a mushroom statue almost reaches the ceiling where it resides at the front of the store. The restaurant is in a 100-year old building matching the historic, collegiate vibe of Downtown Athens.
