“Very good pizza, trippy interior”
Review of Mellow Mushroom

Mellow Mushroom
Ranked #380 of 2,389 Restaurants in Charlotte
Price range: $0 - $30
Cuisines: American
Description: Established in 1974. Mellow is a state of mind, a culture, a way of being. Our mission is to provide delicious food in a fun and creative environment. We are the originators of hand tossed, stone baked classic southern pizza. Our spring water crust is unique and flavorful, and all our pies are made with high quality, fresh ingredients. Our philosophy is to elevate with a higher order of pizza. We are the originator of Classic Southern Pizza, & our unique and flavorful crust is a true original. We began from humble roots, born out of the free-wheelin' hippie culture of the 1970s. The idea back then was the same as it is now: to make the most delicious, crave-able slice of pizza on the planet. The Mellow founders dreamed of a world where happiness could be found in the simplest things - like a mouthwatering slice of pizza and an ice-cold beer.

“Very good pizza, trippy interior”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is a chain restaurant that is around the southeast. It is probably the best chain pizza that I've had. I ordered the meaty pizza which was sufficiently meaty. They do a garlic parmesan crust which is very good. We also ordered some garlic bread which was very garlicy which is great for me as I love garlic (just be warned, if you don't love garlic, it may be too much for you). They have a ton of beers on tap which is definitely a positive. The pizza joint was apparently founded by some hippies and they design their interiors in a stereotypical hippy way (the waiters and waitresses also fit this theme).

There were 2 things that I didn't like: the Guinness did not come in a pint glass and they don't tell you about it (you should NEVER drink Guinness out of anything but a pint glass) and they had a band there which was overly loud (this was a Friday night at about 8 or 9). We had to yell at the table just to communicate. It would have been OK if it was confined to the bar, but it is a very open restaurant.

“Yummy Pizza”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Took our granddaughter here for dinner when we were in town visiting. We ate in the boxcar which she enjoyed. The pizza was very good and the service was great. Also had a yummy salad. Wouldn't order the key lime pie again but enjoyed the rest.

“Great atmosphere with decent food”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Decent pizza at a high price. Food is pretty good, atmosphere makes up for it. Great place to take a family and share pizza and pretzels. Service has always been good when we visit.

“Great pizza -- Super fun for the kids!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Our table was located inside an old school bus. The kids were allowed to draw on the interior of the bus with crayons. Really it doesn't get much better for a kid. Service was great. Really tasty pizza! Excellent crust. Free wifi.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is very cool place with lots of vibrant colors. The food is great and they have a special gluten free menu. However the service can be a little slow because some of the waiters are a little mellow.
