This Mellow Mushroom is the worst I've been to of the four that I've been to at various locations across the south, but the pizza is very tasty despite the restaurant itself.
My husband, son, and I dined in for some late afternoon pizza. I love the funky q chicken pizza (basically a BBQ chicken pizza), and it did not disappoint. My husband had a shittake mushroom pizza that was awesome too. We ordered a half order of Parmesan pretzels, which came out overcooked and deformed so the manager was prompt in giving it to us for free and providing a $5 gift card. The decor is a little silly, but in good fun but the service is very average.

“Better the 2nd time around”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We visited the Mellow Mushroom again because it has a gluten free pizza that is great. Well, the food was great, but the service was better. Erica waited on us, she was pleasant, helpful, knew about the menu items and her suggestions were great. My grandson had an accident with his soda and her reaction prevented him from being embarrassed. The food in any restaurant is either good or bad, however the service makes bad better. In this case we lucked out and had great food and excellent service. Thank you Erica.

“Tacky”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

I can't say the typical choice of attire for the servers who are employed at this establishment. However, during our visit the server had less clothing on than females who are employed by Hooters. We won't frequent this eatery again.

“I Go Simply for the Outdoor Seating”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

I absolutely love the Mellow Mushroom franchise; unfortunately, Fayetteville has a knack for turning franchises into shells of what they are known for with terrible customer service to boot.
Mellow Mushroom is no exception with very slow service and a very unapologetic wait staff. The food is still very good and couple it with a great outdoor seating area and fall weather the wait is tolerable!

“Gluten Free Pizza!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Calzone was huge and delish, the House Special GF pizza was good (minus the bacon). Interesting pizza menu with lots of choices of sauce and toppings allows for a huge variety of tastes. Big comfortable dining room with large bench seats so you could squeeze in a big crowd at one table for added fun! Clean and bright. We will return.
