Customer Reviews

From the warm and friendly staff to the house special pizza, the Mellow Mushroom Nashville Vanderbilt location did not disappoint. We had a bit of wait time after ordering, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The pizza, wings and steak and cheese hoagie where A+.

Mellow Mushroom has always been a go to spot for pizza. I’ve never had a bad experience and the staff is always ready to satisfy my cravings for some really good pizza. Recently I came in & wish i remembered his name. But he proves to me that hard working, kind and caring people still exist in this world we live in. Bright smile and an amazing attitude. He definitely brightened my day.

The mushroom soup was okay but not impressive. The cheese bread was fantastic. We ate more than half of it before I thought to take a picture. My son seemed to like the cheese pizza. The waitress was great.

Pizza was so good! Service was excellent! Wish we had one near us in Illinois. Just another excuse to travel back to Tennessee.
