Diners gasp as fiery flames spring up from the tableside hibachi grills, but chefs remain calm and collected. Nimbly, they sizzle up tender cuts of steak, chicken, and lobster tail, their faces illuminated in the dancing flames. As hibachi chefs labor over grills before their captivated audiences, sushi chefs slice up fresh eel, spicy tuna, and salmon, and then fold the fish into a variety of traditional and specialty rolls. Servers bustle about the dark hardwood floors of the airy space, balancing trays of wine.
Mellow Mushroom serves up made-to-order handcrafted gourmet pizzas and craft beers.

Hand-pressed dough, homemade sauce, and a mozzarella-provolone blend make up the tasty foundation of pies from Lucky's Pizza. From there, the possibilities are virtually endless: guests can create their own inventive pizza with toppings like meatballs, banana peppers, bacon, and feta, or pick a pre-imagined specialty pizza such as a buffalo chicken or double cheeseburger. No matter what kind of pie you order, each one gets baked to perfection in Lucky's deck oven?an oven that distributes heat evenly.
Along with pizzas, guests can also fill up on calzones, wings, and bacon-ranch bread. For the ultimate pizza fan or brave soul, Lucky's holds a Supreme Challenge. Folks get a chance to finish the 16-inch Shamrock Supreme pizza, and it's mountains of pepperoni, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, veggies and more meat in just 20 minutes. The rare guest who finishes this quest will not only get their pizza refunded and a commemorative t-shirt, but also get a spot of glory on the Wall of Fame. Of course, folks can split the Shamrock Supreme with the family, albeit with a little less fanfare.
