Mellow Mushroom has consistent quality from location to location. Not a big nationwide chain, but a small multi-location restaurant in NC. No matter which one we patronize, we are always pleased. Fresh ingredients, no skimping on portions, great wait staff. This location in the American Tobacco District of Durham is no exception. Fantastic, helpful, quick server. Excellent pizza. The crust...

Had a great experience here. I wanted 1/2 White Rabbit and 1/2 Bayou Blue and together it made an awesome pizza. We also has the Steak and Cheese Stromboli and it was also very good No wait, we timed it just right.

We like to visit this location when we go to events at the DPAC. Great family choice. Solid food, but the wait can get very long and the hostess staff at the front are not friendly. Appreciate that the menu offers gluten free options as my son has teen friends who are gluten free which can make finding a place... More

Great service, variety of pizzas, even gluten free crust. It's always a treat for our daughter when we can sit under one of the mushrooms at the special tables. Our server was very good and when I couldn't decide between two chicken pizzas she offered that I could have a pizza with a half of each. I didn't know that... More

Took my adult children, their spouses, and children to the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Durham for a family dinner. We were seated in a glass-enclosed area that would have been outdoors if not for the glass. So there was a very serious heating system. Between blower noise and high energy rock music competing with each other, conversation was impossible. Very... More

Went on a Saturday night, I was shocked there was a 45 minute wait? For what? It is like TGI Friday's. Ordered the large meat lover pizza. Rip off. It is $25.00. However it is the size of a medium pizza at papa johns. Very greasy. Need to see my doctor now to flush my system.

Food and drinks are good. Lots of menu variety and good service. Food is fairly priced but drinks are a little pricey. We love the location and go here regularly.

Both my teen and I really liked the pizza - perfect crust and really unusual toppings. Service was excellent as well. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the food and service. It was a weekend night and we got there about 6:30 so we got seated right away. About 20 minutes later there was a line for a table.

Took a friend to lunch today, used up a Groupon, glad I did! Had a Philly Cheesesteak and it was not only good, it was enough to take home for another meal. They serve half sized also which is really enough for a meal, by itself. Service pretty fast, nice crowd at 12:15. One nit. Nothing comes with the sandwich,... More
