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

Mellow Mushroom never disappoints! We love eating here. The atmosphere is always fun and laid back!! Tonight the guy serving us was new on the job. He was working so hard to make sure everything was right with his customers and also running to-gos. He did a great job! He was super nice to our 3 year old little girl who knows how to seriously destroy the floor under our booth!! We will be back. Next time we will find him and ask to be in his section again!! We tipped him well for his hard work.

The service was fantastic. The food was better than last time and it was great last time. The kids all ate and we are so full. Cumberland location is by far the best. A great experience as usual.

Always great food and fast service. This is usually our go to spot for really good pizza and it always delivers. The topping selection is amazing and quality is awesome.

I'm local and come here often because the food is so good. Mikey is always pleasant and calm even when they are busy.

I made an online request about a birthday party at the Cumberland Ave location. I really didn't think they would answer me but to my surprise they answered me just a couple hours later. They told me they would be happy to accommodate my request and to just call the next day to tell them what time. I did and I talked to Whitney. She was so nice and helpful. When we got there that evening EVERYONE was so wonderful. They were nice to us and gave us everything we needed. The food was awesome too!! We had a great experience this evening. Thank you!
