Best pizza in Charleston, HANDS DOWN. Fresh toppings, imported cheese, homemade sauce. Wish they were still open for lunch all week, but at least they open at 3 so you can get a pie on the way home from work.
We ordered for delivery and "built our own" Chicago deep dish with spinach, black olives and meatballs. It arrived hot, which is always a bonus, since pizza always tastes just a little different when you reheat it. This is our new favorite pizza place - - the crust was delicious, the sauce and toppings were fresh, tasty and generous. Our order cost us $28.00 total, but there was enough pizza to last several days because just one slice of this stuff is enough for a meal.
I heard the rumors that Norm's was shutting down and was upset that one of downtowns most iconic pizza places was closing. Imagine my surprise when I drove by, saw the open sign and found out NORM is back. The original owner that opened the place in 1979 is back and running the place again. I was also told by Norm's very nice daughters the situation with the beer liscence (they are getting it March 1st). The food is great and I love that the entire family is working there. You can't find a better mom and pop place to dine at. They get to know you and what you like to order. I personally LOVE their customer service. It is rare to get such great treatment at restaurants
I really cannot say enough about this place. Pretty much the best tomato sauce in Charleston, including Il Cortile, Fulton Five, and Lucca. The pizza is second-to-none: made to order, handled with care, nothing but fresh ingredients. The stromboli and calzones are also better than any I've had in the city. This place is a gem and I hope it stays open (maybe even upgrades to a larger location) for a long time. A must-have.
Quality gourmet; perhaps the best pizza. The whole wheat crust produces a denser, chewier crust that delightfully pairs with the many beers available. Toppings are generous and good quality. A wonderful product in a class by itself.
Upper crust. Brixx, EVO and Monza exist as a class of quality pizza that permits the diner to escape from the all too familiar NY style and franchise presentations.
This place is fantastic. They make everything from scratch. They even grow their own herbs. It is by far the best quality in Charleston. The staff is also great.
Have known the brothers for years. This place is one of the best in Charleston. Do yourself a favor and call up for a delivery or better still go visit the funky place. Besides the great food and great owners you will have a great time.
Mellow Mushroom makes fanatic pizza, and the restaurant itself is pretty cool. The new rooftop patio is very cool and with the addition of restrooms upstairs you no longer have to walk down a set of stairs and past the kitchen to take a leak.
The staff is very friendly, and after six years of dining in I have never had an unpleasant experience at the Mellow Mushroom. Highly recommend
I own Park, and in response to Bemlar, I must point out that although it may look like styrofoam, our to-go boxes are produced using green technology and are made from corn and wheat. They are 100% biodegradable. Our pizza boxes and salad containers are made from recycled cardboard and are, themselves, recyclable. Please come see us if you have any other concerns or you'd like additional information.
My new favorite pizza. Strong future for these guys. Cool place.
The Colbert is the best pizza I've ever had! What a great mix of flavors, none of which over-shadow the others! Fast delivery, awesome crust and a great mix of sauces/ingredients to choose from. Best pizza place on JI!
Hubby and i ate there for lunch the other day. They have great lunch specials- for 6 dollars you can get a drink and your choice of calzone/2 pieces of pizza, or wings.
We got the calzone- it was large, cooked to perfection, and tasted excellent.
This place is a great addition to JI!
I love this place! The pizza is great and so is the service. Best pizza on James Island!
Best pizza in town. Authentic Italian style.
I don't understand who would keep writing more than one bad review unless it was a person that was fired. When I go into the Crust it is always a good experience. Thursday Trivia is the best. Also the patio is great to hang out by a fire and safe enough for my children to run around in. My hat is off to the best pizza place in the area!
I agree...they definitely need to win best of charleston this year!
It may be a dump, but they do deliver too if you prefer to not go in. And who really cares anyway?? The food is so good, you don't even realize your in the middle of the ghetto. I hope they win Best Pizza in Charleston for 2010! They definitely deserve it.
The storefront is tiny and minimalist, but there is outdoor seating, and so many options on the menu that you probably won't even notice. It seems like the cooks here will put just about anything on a pizza, often in surprising and delicious combinations. I've been there twice so far and I can't wait to go back. The pizza (or calzone, or sandwich) is made fresh to order and if you sit inside, you can watch them throw the dough, load up your toppings, and pop it in the oven.
My buddy had a Bradwell calzone that was a weird but tasty mix of flavors including fig preserves, apples, pecons, blue cheese, turkey sausage. I've also sampled the white Room pizza (delicious white pie), the Big Z (awesome), and Ciao Ciao (pesto yumminess). I live in the neighborhood, so I am stoked that they deliver.
Funny how the person who wrote the review who "knows" food and does this for a living disagrees. Again, it's great, great, great!!!
