We were greeted and seated immediately and well taken care of. Brian was an excellent server and made sure we had everything we needed - and the food was outstanding.

Lived in Atlanta where Mellow Mushroom was born - have probably eaten at 15 locations - this one is average at best. Service has always been so so. Pizzas always seem a little wet in the middle. Crowded which is good, but also creates a unique atmosphere - if you're in that mood - great - if not - well...there... More

The food and atmosphere were great. The outside seating in the cool early evening was enjoyable. The server was fast and friendly. The prices were reasonable, also.

Parking is always tough around the Mellow Mushroom. My niece's pizza was good, but I received a large plate with a small, sad little sandwich. Service was excellent. The quality of the pizza does compensate for the higher price. It is loud.

Mellow Mushroom is a weakness for me. The pizzas are definitely on the pricey side, but as much as I bicker about this, I always go back. Service waivers between disinterested to amazing, but hey, isn't the real reason we travel to a restaurant for the food? I think the mega-veggie is great and the mighty meaty is delicious too....

When arriving here, it was apparent they have great food because every parking spot was taken. We had to circle the block and come back and we sat until another car left. There are not many spaces to begin with. The restaurant is pretty large so despite the no parking, the place wasn't that busy. They had outdoor seating and... More

We had heard of Mellow Mushroom before and knew it's a chain (although we don't have any in the area where we live) and thought it would be worth a try. My son and I were in Raleigh for a college tour and just wanted a quick & easy casual bite to eat on our arrival evening and this place... More

Great food, great beer...ok service, will definitely visit again. The audio system was soft and the karaoke machine wasn't working which I found strange in a college town.

Mellow Mushroom wasn't a native Durham restaurant, but it was delicious none the less! The only problem was that it was pretty greasy compared to other times I had been to Mellow Mushroom. We went on a weekday evening around 6pm and had no problem getting a table for a party of 3.
