Friends of ours have raved about different mushrooms. This one didn't impress. Lettuce on the salad had seen much fresher days, kitchen messed up the pizza order. Our waitress did bring us a second salad with fresher lettuce and a second pizza, which saved the day.

I dined at the new location twice. The first time it was awesome! Pizza was fresh and the ingredients were delicious. The second time it was average. Service was consistent and the employees all had a smile on their face. Though the new location is wonderful inside, I do miss the old location!

I had never been to a Mellow Mushroom and usually like to support local folks rather than chains. The pizza was the best ever. Everything made from scratch. Place was packed which is usually a good indication of a good place. Very friendly staff eager to please. Very diverse selection of beers particularly locally (NC) brewed.

The Mellow Mushroom has a unique crust that tastes delicious and they make a wonderful variety of pretzels as well. Their pizzas are creative and delicious. Artisitically the interior has some beautiful emebellishments and wall hangings. I also tried their gluten free pizza which had a nice crust and was delicious.

The food is good, and the service was friendly. We had to wait for a table but the new building is beautiful, plus sitting outside in nice weather made the time pass quickly. It is a little darker inside that other MM's we have visited and the decor is not as 'hippie' as the others (read: dry/reserved) but we would... More

We have visited the other Mellow Mushroom for years, enjoyed sitting on the outside deck at the old building. Made a trip to the mountains to eat at the "new" place. Not impressed. Restaurant is very nicely decorated. Everything is new, however, the place just doesn't feel the same. The only thing that stayed the same is the 1 women's... More

I've eaten at Mellow Mushroom many times in several locations from Florida to North Carolina. But this is the only one where I got sick from gluten contamination (I have Celiac Disease). What a disappointment.

Had a wonderful patio lunch at the Mellow Mushroom and found it delightful. The menu offered a wide variety sure to please everyone. Only drawback I found was a couple of large dogs right beside us. We were dining outside and found this a little uncomfortable. Did not realize this may happen when we were seated. Would consider dining inside... More

Food was fine, but the wait was 70 minutes and that included for take out, as well. When I saw people coming after me being seated, I asked for my food. First they tried to get me to pay for it, again. Then they found it. It had clearly been done a while.
