Mellow Mushroom Charlottesville - The Story

Located on the first floor of The Graduate Hotel, the restaurant’s exterior has a soothing light-yellow color palette and metal light fixtures. Mature trees provide shade for the outdoor dining area, and large windows let in lots of natural light. The interior of the restaurant features bold colors and funky artwork. In the entryway, portraits of Presidents Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe celebrate Virginia’s history. Bold, 70s-inspired murals are found throughout the dining room, and a tall mushroom sculpture seems to grow out of the dining room floor. Wood accents and vibrant wall colors round out the design.

Customer Reviews

During my visit, I experience good customer service; an employee helps me navigate the menu well and is very kind. I order a custom small Vegan pizza which is so filling (for a really good price): I save a slice for breakfast. The ingredients I choose aren't really super flavorful more than subtle. I really decide on eating pizza because I like the way I feel when I eat good pizza especially Sicilian like pizza, fluffy and yummy. Pizza is such a good carrier concept for ingredients. The establishment accepts different forms of payment.

We got a mockail strawlemon lime. There steak and cheese is one of the best at this restaurant. The steak and cheese not greasey at all, full of flavor and they use the rib eye meat as a steak which is absolutely the best meat. We also order a small pizza the merry prankster.

I’m addicted to mellow mushroom pizza. Anytime I see a mellow mushroom, I have to stop. This was a great experience with awesome service and three incredible pizza pies. I don’t understand how a chain can be so consistent and so good. I highly recommend the Cuban pizza. The mustard sauce was shockingly delightful.

Solid pizza. Novel combinations, you can really get crazy. Good selection of sandwiches and burgers too. So something for everyone and reasonable prices. Server worked really hard and was friendly.

Good service and overall very good Pizza! First time at their new location and it has been a few years since I last ate at Mellow Mushroom. Gotta say I was impressed! Pizza crust and topping were tasty, and they had my favorite bear on-tap which was nice to see. Will be back for more!
