Mellow Mushroom Knoxville - The Story

The exterior of the restaurant is painted blue and features a circular tower with colored glass windows above the entrance. A vivid mural spans the entire length of the building and a wrap-around porch provides ample outdoor seating. Inside, giant mushrooms tower over the spacious dining room that features sleek gray floors and metal accents. Large pendant lights hang over the waiting area. Above the bar, a blue and white mural stretches from one end of the room to the other, providing a contrast to the bright red bar top. A forest painting and curving ceiling panels round out the design and create a tranquil feeling in the contemporary space.

Customer Reviews

This is my first visit to a mellow mushroom. Thoroughly enjoyed the colorful and whimsical interior with the large mushrooms and murals both inside and out. The staff at this location was super friendly. Great pizza one of the best I’ve ever had. Recommend for lunch or dinner families couples adults and children alike

I was a little concerned when we pulled up. The parking lot was absolutely packed. I dropped my party off and found a parking spot. When I walked in we had already been seated much to my surprise. The staff was friendly and attentive. The interior was colorful and well lit. They had gluten free options for my partner and did a wonderful job preventing cross contamination. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Overall Mellow Mushroom will remain a highlight of our trip to Knoxville.

I love going on friend dates here. The vibes are lovely and the food is so good. They even have great options for my vegan friend!! The food has always come out quickly and looking amazing. Service has been excellent every time I’ve gone, I’ve never found myself waiting for a refill or the check

Went here for my birthday and had a blast! I love mellow mushroom! I especially love that they have vegan options so I can enjoy a good meal when I go out 😋 I wish I remembered our server’s name, but it’s been a few weeks. He was super kind and attentive! We had a great time 💕

Today, the service stole the show. I was promptly seated at a table near the bar. The bartender was attentive without hovering. It was perfect. I had the Shiitake pizza with ribeye added to it. Absolutely delicious.
