We have one in our own town of Jacksonville Florida but have never eaten there. We had an hour wait outside in the cold with the wind blowing 22 mph but it was homecoming weekend for the Appalacian State University so we understood. The waitress was awesome and shiitake pizza that I had was very good

We stopped in on a Sunday for a late dinner - luckily, we had missed the rush earlier where people were stuck waiting outside for a table. We loved the pizza and customizable options and the atmosphere was cozy and funky at the same time. Food is slow, but that's why you get when you order a pizza anywhere in... More

Okay, so maybe it's a step up from a typical pizza parlor but the menu is very similar. Pizza, sandwiches, etc. You can dress it up if you like but it is what it is. Great place for families. Strangely enough, you can only order slices to go during certain days and times and dinner hour is not one of... More

We have always said the Blowing Rock Mellow Mushroom was the best one ever. We ate at the new location and were so disappointed. The crust was burnt, service was slow and not friendly. There doesn't seem to be as much seating as before. We loved the old one, why mess with a good thing?

My husband is in the MM Beer Club so we have to check out MM in every city that has one. This one had the mountain charm in its decor. Beertender was very friendly and helpful.

Good pizza, variety, beers. We like to eat at Mellow Mushroom our first night in Blowing Rock because we don't have to change clothes or drive to it. Always enjoy the pizza, crust with honey for dessert, and beer selection.

Crust must have been pre cooked , burnt black on bottom and so hard could not eat it .Waitresses very hard to find once she brought our order... More

Had a salad and my spouse, had a small piza. Was good and was served fast. The atmosphere is good, clean and the staff is very attentive to your needs. The food was good, not the GREAT plus but good.
