We were thrilled to find this Mellow Mushroom next to the Durham Bulls park. The atmosphere was terrific and they were happy to accommodate all 8 of us at an outside table. Staff was friendly and attentive. MYou must have the pretzels...they are to die for. Pizza was as good as I remembered and come out promptly. Served local beer... More

Very good pizza! Inside very dark and service was not so good. Had to ask for everything and the place seemed dirty when looking around. Pizza was good but probably wouldn't be back.

We arrived at Mellow Mushroom around 8 PM on a Saturday night and found the wait time was negligible. The three of us shared a large chicken, mushroom & artichoke pizza which was delicious and very filling (there was even one slice left over which we took home). I found the decor in this Mellow Mushroom not as interesting or... More

We have always enjoyed Mellow Mushroom pizza for the past 20 years we have lived in NC where they are based. But the helpfulness at the location near the Performing Arts Center was remarkable. We were running late getting to the play at DPAC that Friday, so didn't get to eat. When the play was over, we ran into some... More

Although a little small, this place delivers with good food and beer for a good price. Staff is polite and helpful, atmosphere is very good.

This is one of few restaurants in the area that will take a reservation for a relatively large party (several weeks in advance) without trying to sell you a private party space. Menu has gluten free options and salads for people with special dietary needs, and there are high-chairs and crayons for the kids. Not to mention fantastic pizza and... More

Love the food but the excessive wait time on the weekend makes it hard to plan other events around it. They do an excellent job of accomodating you at the bar. The price of success I suppose. But the food is really good!

Having reviewed MM before, this is just an update--yesterday I had their gluten-free pizza, which a server told us had just (two days before) undergone an recipe change. The crust was fantastic, especially compared to gluten-free pizza crusts I've had before. Thin, slightly chewy, light and soft inside. Surprisingly pleasant pizza.

Everyone raves about Mellow Mushroom but I just don't get it. The pizza is pretty good but very pricey. The beer is always cold. This location is so small that it is always a long wait and the waitstaff could care less that you have been sitting for an hour and would like a drink. Just not a very friendly... More

Hand made dough, freshest ingredients, imaginative combinations, great beer selection, right next door to the Durham Ball Park, has outside seating, cute but casual, and easy to access from 147, what's not to like?
