Mellow Mushroom is an Athens institution located in the historic Michael Brothers Building (interesting info on the building history) it shares a grand hall opening with Doc Cheys and offers plenty of seating space which is often filled to capacity.
This Saturday night was no different and the place was PACKED! We were told it would be a 35 minute wait but we found seats immediately in the bar area and ordered there.
We selected a Mega-Veggie pizza and started out with two Lil Tossed salads. The salads were a ‘lil’ disappointing and they were really nothing but lettuce, tomato and cucumbers and really lacked any character. We probably could’ve tweaked this into something we would have enjoyed though but the “stock offering” was unappealing.
The pizza was really good but it was a little dry and could’ve used more sauce and cheese in order to really make it what it’s creator intended it to be.
If you’re looking for a quiet, intimate place for a meal, this is NOT the place! This is 1) downtown Athens 2) filled with college kids and 3) Saturday night 4) TVs showing sports 5) filled to the brim with customers = it’s LOUD (yet fun and quite entertaining!).
You’d be amiss if you skipped Mellow Mushroom! Guten appetit!
