Mellow Mushroom Franklin - The Story

Housed in a former bank, the restaurant puts a Mellow twist on a charming, historic red brick building. Guests can dine at the outdoor tables under the shade of large, mature trees. The interior of the restaurant has traditional styling, dark wood accents, lantern-like pendant lights, and handcrafted trim. The historic design continues to the stately bar area, which features exposed brick, arches, and a chandelier. Modern, playful touches like an old bank vault that has been converted into a walk-in cooler elevate the traditional styling. Vivid artwork, including a vault-inspired mural, providing bright pops of color, and a large mushroom sculpture and a VW bus booth add a playful twist to the design.

Customer Reviews

We were in downtown Franklin and wanted some lunch. Mellow mushroom was close so we got a medium pepperoni pizza, an Italian sub, and a spinach and artichoke dip. I forgot to photo the dip and sub, but got the last slice of the pie. The pizza is good here and did not take long to get. The crust is fluffy but flaky on the outside. The sauce is robustly Italian. Good cheese pull on the slices too. I ate half the pie myself, pains me to say. If I am in town again, most definitely will go back. The staff are quick and nice too. The atmosphere is laid back like the name suggests. They is also have a game room by the lobby so you won't get to bored if time permits. Nice place!

We came on Saturday evening around 7.30 pm and didn’t wait for a table! We ordered few pizzas and in my opinion the best was veggie one ( amount of sauce, very good crust, combinations of veggies was perfect) We came to celebrate our friend’s birthday and he got vanilla ice cream as a gift! Natalie the waitress was amazing, kind and helpful. Everything tasted great and fresh! Recommend this place when you think about eating pizza in Franklin downtown. This is our first time visiting Nashville and what a great place to start our adventure!

Super fast, super hot pizza with huge side salad. Grand kids really enjoyed French bread pizza with apple slices. Server was very attentive and friendly, frequently making sure we had everything we needed. We also enjoyed all the unique art of The Mellow Mushroom. Thank you for a great visit.

Always a good choice when you're looking for gluten-free pizza. Expect a wait most days unless it's the middle of the week mid day. They have very fun mocktails that you can also add alcohol to. There is an extensive beer list as well. If you're starving when you get there I suggest getting a salad first as it will come out faster than pizza.

Patio seating is much quieter and relaxing than inside. Only downside to eating out doors is the flies. We got the BBQ chicken and meaty pizza. Pizza was fantastic. Two people could share a small for lunch, but we got a large and turned it into another meal. Server was great and there was no wait time for lunch.
