As with all Mellow Mushrooms the décor is funky and specific to the area (Nascar here) and the hand thrown pizzas are delicious with toppings you won't find anywhere else.

Will pass on this restaurant next time. We had a party of six and though I called ahead it did not matter as they do not take reservations. When we arrived we were told the wait was 20 minutes. We ended up waiting 40 with two toddlers. Once seated, we discovered that there were no children's menus. We had to... More

Recently moved to a new location with a great space. Is back to very good pizza. Only drawback is that is always crowded.

We ate here a couple of times during a week stay at Blowing Rock and it was delish! One time was sit in and the other was carry out. My mom avoids gluten, so I share a gluten free pizza with her. Very tasty!

The food, service and ambience are always great at any Mellow Mushroom. The only complaint was that on this late Saturday afternoon our wait was nearly an hour. Not the fault of the staff at all, they were hustling and our food came quickly once we were seated and had our order in.

As a local in Blowing Rock I had stopped visiting the old location because the service was horrible. I decided to try the new location and I was pleased that the service was MUCH improved. The food was great as always and I love the decor of the restaurant. The location used to be an old gas station that is... More

The Mellow Mushroom in one of only 2 places we have found for Pizza in Blowing Rock, and it is the better of the two. The pizza is well made, has a nice doughy outer crust, and is cooked correctly (not overdone yet not soggy in the middle). Some do not like the sprinkling of parmesean cheese over the entire... More

Being a local I had visited the Mellow in Blowing Rock a few times. This past year they moved locations into a new building and the new restaurant is beautiful. Same great food as always and our server was super! Always pleased & well worth the money.

We love the Mellow Mushroom wherever we visit them. I honestly miss the Blowing Rock Mellow Mushroom's old location. I felt like the old one was more unique and comfortable. The new one is in a much busier location (which I am sure is good for business). One complaint was that our plain cheese pizza took longer to make than... More

Mellow Mushroom just reopened after moving to a new location. Great renovation and good outdoor searing. The pizzas are great, but a small pizza with several toppings can cost you close to $20. Service is slow and the kitchen is even slower. They want you to have several beers or cocktails while waiting.
