The Mellow Mushroom is a gourmet pizza place with a loyal following among Clemson University students and professors.
The Mellow Mushroom uses all-natural ingredients and dough.
The building itself is amusing - it was originally the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity House, the "Old Shack." The building was condemned in the Spring of 1999 with the fraternity permanantly relocating to their present location. During the remodeling of the building by the Mellow Mushroom the ground floor was found to be held up by several hundred "acquired" car jacks. The second floor was in such bad condition it was removed - hence the open interior design. It also has a patio for outdoor dining.

There are two major downsides to the Mushroom. One, it's expensive, and two, the service is slow. Expect no less than a 15 minute wait for drinks, and a 30-45 minute wait for your food after you order it. Despite these cons, the Mushroom remains popular.
